Beneteau is easily the largest production builder of both sail and powerboats in the world. The French company has been turning out sailboats for decades, but lately they’ve added powerboats including trawlers, express boats, a small sportfisher, and a line of luxury yachts. Beneteau understands that today, boating is less about the boat and more about the boating experience—so Beneteau delivers fast, comfortable, easy-to-sail boats with a Euro-chic flair and continually evolving production processes. If you’ve chartered, chances are you’ve been on a Beneteau, and more Beneteau hulls have circumnavigated the globe than any other brand. Today, the power models including Grant Tourismo, Swift trawlers and Monte Carlo luxury cruisers, are coming on strong and deliver good value in every market segment.
The Oceanis 44CC has the elegance of a large sailing yacht, all the comfort and safety of an Oceanis, the endurance and performance of a Beneteau, not forgetting the comfort and safety of the "center cockpit" concept. A superb sailing yacht, built in accordance with the principles that have given Beneteau it's excellent reputation. Between the gelcoat and the laminate, is the true shield provided by the BWS system (a Beneteau patent which reduces the porosity of the polyester). The hull is perfectly constructed to provide real strength in areas of stress and ensures perfect rigidity. On board, it's easy to move around. Comfortable seats, completely protected. There is a choice of where to position the steering wheel: either on a pedestal or further forward on the bulkhead, with the option of a hard top-rigid windscreen, for more shelter. The teak handrails on the coachroof are cleverly positioned to make it easy to move forward or aft and the integral step on the port side gives easy access from the cockpit to the deck. The protective rubbing strake completely surrounds the hull: the gelcoat, therefore, is protected. The twin lifelines surround the boat and the teak covered bulwark ensures that everyone is completely safe. Furling genoa, furling mainsail, halyard blocks and stoppers, mainsheet track well aft, self-tailing genoa winches and even an electric halyard winch, make life on board even more enjoyable and make the Oceanis44 CC an easy boat to sail, in spite of the generous dimensions of her sail plan. The decor is polished, sea-going and comfortable. The light and ventilation also reinforce the feeling of well-being. The precious woods with warm hues elegantly underline the space in the salon. The space forward to port can be used for either a cabin with bunk berths or a workshop-laundry. Nothing has been forgotten in the galley: fridge-freezer with two compartments, gimballed hob-oven, twin stainless steel sinks, laminated work top with moulded wooden fiddle, numerous lockers (sliding vegetable basket, cutlery drawers) and even a microwave oven. The large aft owner's cabin is astonishingly spacious. This is one of the advantages of a center cockpit. Forward, there is a choice of two accommodation layouts for your guests: Friends visiting for just a day or a long cruise, will be comfortably accommodated in the large forward cabin with double berth, fully furnished with hanging locker, drawers, lockers beneath the berth.
