Hi dc,
Welcome to the list.

Yes there is a 48 hole Rohloff hub however it is not in general sale.  The 48 hole version is only available when buying a Rohloff equipped Thorn Tandem.  It is laced in a Crows foot pattern.

It is worth noting that a 32 spoke Rohloff Wheel is MUCH stronger than a normal 32 spoke wheel.  This is due to the zero dish required.  (The larger than normal flange also helps.)
