Interior Layout

With one of the most innovative and well appointed interiors to appear in a yacht in this size range, the 44's accommodations are focused on the requirements of both extended cruising and a comfortable lifestyle when living aboard. Two large double staterooms, well separated for privacy and each with its own head and shower, combine with an expansive central living area to provide a gracious setting for entertaining or cruising with family and friends.

The Forward Stateroom has a double Pullman berth to starboard, abundant storage on teak shelves, in stowage lockers, and in cedar-lined drawers. Also featured are a large cedar-lined hanging locker, teak bureau with mirrored vanity and an upholstered seat.

The adjoining private Forward Head with separate shower area has a wrap around vanity with s/s sink, hot/cold pressure water, unbreakable mirror and plenty of storage.

The Salon has a full-sized settee which converts to a double berth as well as Island Packet's drop down dining table with storage behind.

The Nav Station is at the aft end of the settee, featuring a wrap around work area, large chart table, chart storage tray, drawer, nav light, generous cabinets, master electrical panels, book rack, storage bin and stowage under the upholstered seat.

It has a large divided refrigerator/freezer, 3-burner stove/oven, double s/s sinks with sink cover, aluminum propane tanks, deluxe dish rack, cutlery drawers and large storage drawers.

A molded slip-resistant sole is provided in the galley, companionway, nav and head areas, while the salon and staterooms have varnished teak and holly soles.
