44 Aquarius

The 44 was produced as a Hardtop with fixed doors aft of the helmsmans seat, and also as the Mediterranean, which had a standard removable canopy and an open aft cockpit. In its day the flagship of the Fast Offshore range, the 44 combines a vee hull for fast offshore passages with a skeg keel providing good handling qualities. The bathing platform is integral to the hull but the access to the deck is still by stainless steel ladder at this time. The 44 is distinguished by its rectangular portholes forward and aft.

The large deck saloon was laid out with lounge seating aft on the port side, and a dinette on the same level but forward on the starboard side. Steps lead down to the port side galley and forward heads. The standard layout was for an island double in the forward guest cabin although in some boats this was replaced by V-berths. The large third cabin was fitted with overlapping twin bunks.

These boats were fitted with a variety of twin engine configurations between 185HP and 220HP including the Ford Sabre 420L as well as Caterpillar or Volvos.
