*I owned a Crealock 48 yachtfisher in 1995. This boat was the precursor of the Offshore 48 after Crealock sold to the Offshore people.
Except for an up & down traffic flow (Aft and down to the master cabin* & forward and down to the galley and forward cabin) it was a great boat. Very sea kindly and "the softest ride on the water." It had a small cockpit that was accessed from the aft cabin and a terrific forward deck for handling the anchor detail. From the salon, it was up just a few steps to the "California Deck" (our favorite) and just 3 more steps to the fly bridge and boat deck. We also had two helm stations. (Fly bridge and salon)
We didn't have 3208's so we cruised at 10 knots which is all our twin 200hp Perkins would deliver. I believe that 3208's are better suited to this boat. I had a talk with Bill Crealock (phone) about the 10 knot cruise and he said that surprised him! Others, he said, are getting 12-15 knots with their Cats. "Gentleman Bill Crealock" passed away just a few years ago. Some say that the Crealock 37 sailboat he designed is still the best 37 ever built. (Not being a "rag sailor", I can't comment on that.)
The master cabin is huge and the master head on ours had a bath tub (useless) and a shower.
*As far as the quality of the build? I would say it's "excellent" as most all Offshore people will tell you.
