Boat Description

This revolutionary new catamaran uniquely balances comfort, space and a sailing performance unrivalled by most catamarans. The most noticeable feature of the 444 is her covered forward cockpit which is accessible from the main saloon giving even more space for socialising and relaxing, as well creating cooling breezes into the interior.

All cabins are large and spacious, featuring en-suite shower rooms with separate heads (toilets), and the layout provides privacy and space where needed. Her low stern hull platforms, like the 384 means it’s easy to get in and out the water, so great for swimming. Her davits also like the 384 are electric and offer stress free launch and recovery of your tender.

Sailing the 444 is unlike sailing a normal catamaran, with deep narrow groove hulls and shallow draft the 444 is able to sail as close to wind as many a monohull. Not only is she good sailing up wind, but she is also steady downwind with limited roll, ensuring the G & T’s stay firmly on the table. Her 360 degree helm station gives complete control from one place, all electronic navigation aids are as standard, along with plenty of additional features including air-conditioning. Like her smaller sister, the 444 also has solar panels for added battery life.

The Sunsail 444

The Sunsail 444 is the newest generation of cruising catamarans built by Robertson and Caine and focuses on innovation, performance, and comfort. With an abundance of outdoor space and its generous sail plan, this catamaran is both luxurious and practical. The spacious four double cabin and four head layout plus large saloon and galley gives plenty of room for groups or families. Generous headroom throughout plus substantial storage capacity gives additional space for on board relaxation.

The innovative exterior of the Sunsail 444 features not only a spacious hardtop covered aft cockpit but also a large forward cockpit with access to the saloon providing even more space for relaxing. Her powerboat-style stepped transom enabling easier boarding. Environmental considerations were also central to the design, with solar panels installed on the helm hardtop to charge the on-board batteries. For additional comfort the Sunsail 444 features generator and air conditioning.
