Designed to be a high-end multihull motor yacht, it combines large and spacious volumes in a deliberately small size, so that it can offer an excellent combination of luxury and usability. The mobile aft platform on the M48 can serve as a cockpit deck or be put in the water to facilitate launching a tender.
