ABOUT THE BREEZE

THE BREEZE is like no other J44. Possibly the best and certainly one of the last J44s built, she is a powerful offshore sloop that, unlike her sister ships, is ready for extended cruising in elegance and comfort. THE BREEZE has always benefited from owners who have provided her with the best of care. She is the most updated and well-equipped J44 out there. She is easy to singlehand with her Dutchman system, roller furling headsail, electric halyard winch and all sail controls leading aft to the cockpit. She is complete with state-of-the-art electronics, generator, air conditioning & heat, water maker and deep fin keel and spade rudder. She is one of the few that is equally at home sailing offshore as she is at anchor.
