A unique experience in pleasure and performance. Daysailers are becoming ever more popular so a market for this type of yacht is growing. In developing the Advanced 44, performance was one of the most important considerations. While this yacht is not a pure racing machine her hull lines, appendages and sail plan are clearly derived from the experience of the design team in designing racing yachts for the America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Races.
A beautifully crafted yacht in vacuum infused epoxy resin with fibreglass in the low load areas and carbon in the high load gives the best of both worlds in terms of stiffness and weight, and lower vibration and noise under engine.
A full bow profile with U-shaped sections reduces pitching moment, with a good volume hull, and makes her not only a comfortable yacht at anchor, but ensures good performance and seaworthiness. Deck layout is carefully planned to be tidy and clean with an easy to handle sail plan.
If you are a racing person at heart, the option for a larger mainsail with split backstays is available, increasing the upwind sail area, and to keep in complete control with a full width mainsheet traveller. The cruising specification has a simple mainsheet pod in the middle of the yacht, keeping the deck clean, easy to manage and providing a comfortable bracing point when heeled.
Twin rudders and wheels make steering the yacht an absolute delight and puts the sailor in complete control at all times; for racing you would be surprised at how hard you could push the yacht. More and more yachts now are pursuing the twin rudder options as wider aft sections push the rudder further and further forward on the centreline, making the yachts difficult to manage.
The interior follows the Italian DNA of stylish simplicity. An unusually open plan layout makes the most of the available space, as this is essentially a weekender for a couple or small family. The space is carefully designed, fresh and open, with a large and well-appointed heads unit.
Although the smallest of the range, she shares the build quality and fitments of the much larger yachts and offers the same exclusive and high quality fittings normally found in the best five star hotels around. In fact, the parallels are well drawn with spending the night on board to a top level hotel suite for the weekend, but the view of course is simply much better in the A44.
