1982 Stevens 47

Annapolis, Maryland


The Stevens 47 is a fast, three stateroom cruiser designed in 1981 by Rod Stephens of the legendary Sparkman and Stephens firm. The Stevens 47 is arguably the most well-respected blue water, three stateroom sailboats produced and is highly prized on the brokerage market. Her soft motion in a seaway, swift 200 nautical mile per day passages, and luxurious accommodations are unrivaled by yachts of a comparable vintage. The performance of these Stevens is legendary. The hull shape and keel-rudder configuration make them surprisingly stiff and fast boats, well-balanced in any condition with a smooth motion offshore.  

Although the design was aimed at the charter trade, she was really much more. Bill Stevens, the Caribbean Charter king of the time, immediately realized the potential and purchased the molds, making as many as he could for his BVI charter fleet as well as lending his name to the vessel. All told, 138 were built, 56 under the Stevens name before he sold the molds to Queen Long Marine. They rebranded the boat under the Hylas 47 name, building another 82 boats. Production began in 1981 and ended in 1991, when the design was modified to become the Hylas 49, which is still in production today.                                       

The Stevens 47 has a solid-fiberglass hull and Airex-cored decks. It's beamy, but the powerful cutter rig, low-deadrise hull, and elongated fin keel put it among the faster cruisers of its era. The hull's sharp entry eliminates pounding in all but the heaviest weather, and its easy motion in a seaway is attributable in part to the fact that the weights of such major components as the engine, which is well forward under the cockpit, are centered well away from the ends.  

HURRAH’s owners have moved onto a larger boat and have mentioned they miss the performance they had with her. The three cabin layout is great for a family or a cruising couple. With lots of living space, good storage and tankage, HURRAH is a good choice for extended cruising or liveaboard. In fact, there are quite a number of them that have done circumnavigations- a testament to their seaworthiness. It’s a lot of boat for the money.

Forward stateroom: Forward most in this space is the chain locker, followed by the v-berth.  The berth is a comfortable 6’5” x 23” x 54”. The hullsides are padded with teak accent staving.  There is a large storage space beneath the berth and a locker at the aft end. On either side are shelves and sliding doors; there are fiddled shelves above that. The starboard side of the berth has a changing seat with storage beneath it and a hanging locker above. On port there is a large mirror and two drawers with a locker beneath them. Lighting and ventilation are provided by a large overhead hatch (2013), 12v fan, an LED reading light and an overhead light.  Headroom is 6’3”.

Midship Cabin:  Moving aft on port is the midship cabin, with over/under bunk beds measuring 6’7”x 26”. There is tankage below the bottom berth and storage beneath the changing seat in the forward end of the space. Above the upper berth is another large locker forward. At the aft end is another locker, with a mirrored arch door and a fiddled dresser top above it.  There is a mirror above the counter and a teak magazine & book rack in the space.  Ventilation and lighting are provided by a Dorade vent, an overhead hatch, an opening port, 12v fan, two reading lights and an overhead Alpenglow light. Headroom in this space is 6’3”. There is custom laminate headliner in place of the original vinyl (2013).

Forward Head/workshop:  Moving out of the midship cabin and across from the mid ship cabin is the forward head.  This space has been converted to a workshop and houses the generator.  The white laminate counter has teak fiddles and a stainless steel sink.  Above and behind the counter is a medicine cabinet with a lift-up mirrored door, an open cubby and a shelved locker with sliding doors.  Beneath the counter are two more lockers with shelves and sliding doors.  Ventilation and lighting are provided by an overhead hatch, an opening port, overhead teak light and the florescent light above the medicine chest.

Saloon: Moving aft is the saloon.  On Starboard there is a 6’5” long settee with a lee cloth.  The settee can pull out to create a 36” wide berth.  Behind the settee are huge deep storage spaces, while above and behind the seat is a pilot berth space which has been converted for cruising storage (though it could easily be converted back again).  On port is a 6’ long L-shaped settee, with tankage beneath it.  The settee can comfortable seat four on the dinette side and six with the table leaves further extended.  Above and behind are fiddle shelves framed by a pair of arched Plexiglass doors.  There is bin storage beneath the table.  Lighting and ventilation are provided by two overhead hatches, four opening ports, two dorade vents , a fan, two teak overhead lights and two reading lamps. Headroom in the saloon is 6’6” and the headliner was replaced with hard laminate in 2013.

Nav station: The Nav is located on starboard aft of the settee. Forward facing, it is positioned on a raised storage area with storage beneath the sole.  The padded seat has storage beneath it as well.  The chart table is easily large enough for a chartbook and has ample storage beneath it.  There are two more lockers outboard beneath the table top and a fiddled cubby along the hull.  Headroom is 6’1”.

Galley: The galley is linear and located on port. There is a huge fiddled counter space over the engine box, with the deep double sinks in this space.  On the outboard side of the galley forward is counter space, with a top loading dry bin above and a drawer and tip out trash bin beneath.  Next aft is the stove. There is a lift-up countertop cover and a small locker below for cookware.  Next aft are the top loading refrigerator and freezer compartments.  At the aft end of this is a large pantry locker.  Above and behind the entire counter area are a six-section dish organizer rack, a large open cubby with fiddles, a cubby with counterspace and a fiddled shelf directly behind the stove, three drawers and three lockers with sliding doors and a microwave.  Lighting and ventilation are provided by three overhead teak lights, three opening ports and a 12v fan. Headroom is 6’ in this space.

Master stateroom:  Access to the master stateroom is from both port and starboard walk-throughs, which allows for great air flow when anchored. The master cabin has two berths. There is a 6’5”x 29” berth on starboard and a 6’6” x 47” berth on port.  Both berths have lee cloths, making this berth configuration ideal for offshore passages.  Outboard of either berth are lockers with shelves and fiddled shelves above those. Forward of each berth is a hanging locker with a shelf above.  The port berth has a changing seat beneath the hanging locker, with storage beneath the seat.  Between the berths is a 24”x 36 counter space, with double door locker storage beneath it, a changing seat below that and more storage beneath the seat.  The forward center of the cabin has a large arched mirror door with shelving behind it.  Light and ventilation are provided by two teak overhead lights, two reading lights, a large overhead hatch, a dorade, two opening ports and three fans. Headroom in the master stateroom is 6’1”. 

Aft Head:  The aft head can be accessed from the salon by the nav station or from the master stateroom. The head is at the aft end of the space and has lockers behind and above it. Next forward is a nice sized fiddled counter space with a sink. Beneath the sink is a large storage locker with shelves and sliding doors. Above and behind the counter is a medicine cabinet with a lift-up mirrored door and another shelved locker with sliding doors. There are separate shower controls and a shower wand on a hose. Ventilation is from an opening port, a dorade vent and a 12v. fan. Additional lighting is from a teak overhead light. Headroom in here is 5’10”.
