Like our powerful 248 hull but need more permanent shelter than a T-top and dodger can provide? The 248 Explorer delivers a classically-styled hard cabin and pilothouse with sliding windows. As her name suggests, she's just right for day-long and weekend coastal expeditions. In line with modern composite construction techniques, the house is built of a strong foam core sandwiched between layers of fiberglass. Mounted on the solid fiberglass 248 hull, the light structure above the gunwales enhances the hull's inherent stability. The cabin offers a V-berth (filler panel with cushion optional), head (portable with pumpout standard, permanent with macerator and holding tank optional), and hanging locker. The swiveling helm and companion seats mount on storage boxes, but the Explorer can substitute a settee to port with a countertop/sink/refrigerator unit just aft for food preparation. The recommended 150-hp outboard can hang on the transom, but an optional Armstrong transom bracket maximizes cockpit space and quiet operation. The bracket allows space for a transom door and a bench seat, and with a boarding ladder, becomes a swim platform. Is a 150 enough for this spacious, comfortable boat? Consider a recorded cruising speed of 25.9 mph burning 6.2 gallons per hour. Try to find a comparably-equipped 24-footer with numbers like those!
