Fantasi 44 holds a consistently high standard, and the boat appears to be as new. This stunning Fantasi 44 Pilothouse hull #21 is not only the last, finished in 2007, but also the least used, the sailing season in norway is short, she is kept indoors when hauled and has never been taken on a longer cruise. She is, from her beautifully finished mahogany interior down to the most minute installations, virtually a new yacht. Her build quality is amazing. The hull was built in 2005 but she was launched into water for the first time in 2012. Before that time, she was privately held by the owner of the shipyard, given his workload he never had time to launch and start using the boat. This boat is in pristine condition immediately ready for new adventures. Throughout her life, she has only been in use for a total of 14 weeks. The current owner has to sell the boat due to his family situation.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a unique sailboat, due to Fantasi’s very limited production, all the vessels are crafted and hand built, this is not your standard mass production sailboat. So far only 21 Fantasi 44 Pilothouse have been built, and this is the third one ever being offered up for sale on the second-hand market. This is truly a rare opportunity to acquire one of the best sailboats in the world in its class.
Fantasy 44 is a boat that retains its speed and stability even if it is loaded heavily. With a lead keel of 4.4 tons and a total weight of 13 tons, the boat is very stable and secure, even in heavy seas. In wind conditions of 11 to 12 meters pr second it is no problem to achieve around 9 knots during sailing. The combination of its hull and keel design makes her a very quick and smooth sailboat.
