"Grace" Features and Equipment List


For Sale: 1987/2017 Garlington 48 Sport Fisherman "GRACE"


It is rare that a pedigreed, custom Richard Garlington Sportfisherman comes for sale. GRACE has been maintained to the highest standards by extremely knowledgeable owners since day one.  38,000 man hours went into her construction and it shows.  GRACE rides soft and dry and is incredibly efficient (28 knots @ 50 gph), boasting one of the cleanest wakes seen.  The perfect family game boat.  

Quality trades welcome!


Garlington’s broad-based experience in custom boat building is clear in this 48’ hull, the second of two 48’s built by Richard Garlington.

Triple planked, cold molded with red mahogany and glassed over on both sides; this hull was designed with comfort and stability in mind. The innovations and craftsmanship surpass many custom boats built today. GRACE has undergone a complete make over, taking 20 years of fishing off, leaving her practically brand new and ready to fish another 20. 

If you are looking for that perfect size sportfish with all the conveniences offered today, look no further.

A custom blue and white, soft wood interior compliments the beautifully crafted, irreplaceable satin book matched teak woodwork enriching her elegance.  GRACE sleeps 6 in two staterooms and two berths located in the companionway, that also create more seating when the top bunk is dropped. The master is located port side with a queen berth and two full hanging lockers. A tremendous storage locker below the master stores spare parts, etc. The guest stateroom is forward offering criss-cross bunks, a half locker and six drawers for storage.

The companionway berths are starboard with drawers located under the bottom berth and a wardrobe locker which has also been outfitted as an extra pantry with removable shelves.  Starboard A/C controls are hidden within the closet for a clean, "no lights at night" look. 

The fully functional galley and salon offers high-gloss, Mappa Burl countertops and is equipped with a Sub-Zero refrigerator and matching freezer, microwave/convection oven, trash compactor and plenty of storage in the upper cabinets. Salon seating is comfortable with an L-shaped settee in navy soft ultra-leather to port and two built-in barrel chairs in tan Majilite. All seating features easy to access storage under the seat cushions. A custom cabinet between the barrel seats hides a pop-up 26” LCD TV that integrates into the cabinetry when in the down position.

GRACE is loaded to fish offering a Bosh half-tower, 40’ triple-spreader Rupp outriggers, ice chipper, water maker, refrigerated fish box, state-of-the-art 2018 navigation and electronics systems, Bluewater helm and rocket launcher, and a built-in tackle center with Gaggenau grill and much more. Teak covering boards, combing pads and teak decking in the flybridge and cockpit make for comfortable fishing.

Grace has undergone a beautiful navy and white interior refit of all soft goods (linens, carpeting, upholstery and lighting) by Finest Kind Yacht Renovations.


Entering the main salon, center-line double positive resistance doors are finished in teak on the inside and bright white on the outside.  These double salon doors permit "couch fishing" and functionally serve for ease of engine maintenance or replacement.  The salon floor features new Fabrica carpet, recessed LED lighting and beautiful teak valances encompassing the overhead perimeter. Behind the valances are LED rope lighting to create an elegant ambiance at night.
