2000 44' 7" BENETEAU Cruising Sailboat 44 CC St Augustine Florida United States
$129,000 USD

The 2000 44' 7" BENETEAU 44 CC Center Cockpit Cruising Sailboat Princessa is a sail boat for sale located in St Augustine, Florida, United States.


The 44 CC has a pleasing, subtle sheer, and the rather high freeboard is nicely disguised by a wide teak rub strake on the hull side. The overhangs are short, resulting in a contemporary look, and the bulk of the large trunk cabin is minimized by a gentle slope forward. My prejudices aside, it would be difficult to design a better looking center cockpit boat given this length restriction.

The accommodation, visibility, and security benefits of these designs continue to make them popular choices among long-term and weekend cruisers alike. Add to that the performance touch of the Farr design team, and it’s easy to see why the Beneteau 44 CC remains popular.

The deck layout features a large center cockpit, which provides excellent visibility from the helm, one of the reasons for the popularity of center cockpit models. Standard equipment on the Beneteau 44 CC included an electric anchor windlass—nearly a must for a boat this large. Standard equipment also included a mast with internal mainsail furling gear and an electric halyard winch, which can be used for unfurling the sail.

The aft master stateroom has a queen centerline berth, port and starboard storage and hanging lockers, and a large head to port with a small tub with shower. The forward layout has a forward V-berth and bunk berths to port on the passageway forward. Both models have a second head forward, a midship main saloon with large U-shaped dinette, a navigation table, and two bucket chairs. The galley is along the starboard passage from the main saloon to the aft stateroom. One other nice feature is a hanging locker just to starboard of the companionway for foul weather gear.

Anything coming out of the Farr design office has been performance-optimized considering her intended use. The displacement/length ratio of 188 and sail area/displacement ratio of 17.5 are smack dab in the middle of what I consider an ideal range for a modern cruising boat, and I don’t believe anyone with reasonable expectations of this genre will be disappointed with this boat’s performance.
