The Kong & Halvorsen Dawn 48 design was custom-commissioned by a group of sailors who aspired to own a world-class cruising design built in a high-quality Asian yard. They got together to select a naval architect and then a yard to create a boat that was not matched by any production-line model. The result was this beautiful German Frers design -- a performance-oriented and very capable ocean cruiser -- and a sturdy, beautiful execution from the Kong & Halvorsen yard.

This is designed as a very liveable boat for extended cruising, and would also make an excellent live-aboard. The saloon is large and open, with comfortable barrel chairs to starboard, and u-shaped dinette to port (which converts to a double berth). The galley offers a lot of counter space and cabinet storage, and is configured for safety in a seaway. The forward stateroom has two single berths, good storage space including a hanging locker, and an adjacent head compartment.
The aft cabin is reached via companionway down the starboard side, and features full standing headroom, two berths, two hanging lockers (and much more storage space), and a head compartment with separate shower compartment. A private companionway accesses the cockpit.
The aft companionway has a rolltop workbench (a very unique and useful feature) and a locker which houses the generator and watermaker components. The engine is also accessed from the companionway via large opening doors -- engine access is as good as you'll ever find on a sailboat of this size.
The interior is well-lit with portlights and windows all around, five deck prisms, three opening overhead hatches. Ventilation from four dorade boxes is also excellent. The interior is lovely, with nicely-crafted teak everywhere.
The center cockpit is also designed as a comfortable living area with a top-notch enclosure and high-backed bench seating.
