The Ariki 48 is the ultimate in tropical cruising catamarans. It combines rakish good looks with exceptional seaworthiness and speed. Its draft and rugged build allow for anxiety-free exploration of shallow waters. The deck space is ideal for comfortable cruising and parties. The interiors may be configured in a variety of layouts and the cockpit can be set up with biminis, pods, or pilot houses.
This is a semi custom boat. BoatSmith offers this boat at any level of finish, from work boat to fine yacht, and at any stage in construction, from bare hulls to fully equiped. We build your dream.
BoatSmith is proud to be the approved professional American builder of James Wharram designs.
