This Nauticat 44 traditional motorsailer benefits from excellent interior volume, easy handling, durability, high safety standards and modern cruising capabilities from the drawing board of Nauticat's designer Kaj Gustafsson and built by Siltala Yachts in Finland.
Features of the Nauticat 44 include side doors on the pilothouse, Sloop rigged in mast furling and a long keel as truly classics should be, together with raised aft decks.
Purchased in 2016 when she had been very lightly used, her current / second owners have continued to keep her in pristine condition during their ownership making this Nauticat 44 probably the best example of this classical Finnish Nauticat Sloop-rigged motorsailer.

She has received a full refit in January 2018 for long cruising.
More than 65,000 US$ was used in rigging, electronic, electricity, watermaker, sails and presentation / comfort. She has proved to be a very seaworthy boat in all weather conditions during our last trip during the previous month from Phuket to Nouméa, 4800 N miles and has never let us down or given any cause for concern.
