The Scotia 44 is a four wheel drive (twin wheel, twin prop), deck salon and pilot house, expedition yacht built with high quality materials by the Canadian craftsmen of Snyder's Shipyard in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia to the tough standards dictated by the squally conditions of the North Atlantic.  For three quarters of a year, these treacherous waters offer but high winds, rain, and sleet, experiencing the worst of Poseidon's wrath.  Each Scotia includes a plank from the legendary Bluenose II in her woodwork to instill and carry on the centuries old Nova Scotian seafaring spirit.  Her twin diesels give her tremendous manoeuvrability in close quarters and redundancy offshore. Her hull design, by the Maple Marine design team, features pilothouse windows that provide outstanding visibility from the inside helm station or while seated at the dinette. The presented layout has a deck salon with 6' 5" headroom and windows that offer a panoramic view of the horizon.


Fuel:     150 gal. (3 tanks - 2 x 25, 1 x 100 gal.)
Water:  150 gal. (2 tanks - 2 x 75 gal.)
Holding:  50 gal. (2 tanks - 30 and 20 gal.)

Interior Arrangement

The naturally light and airy interior features two staterooms and two heads with white vinyl headliner, laminate flooring, and white ash joinery.  Foremost is a storage compartment that can be sealed off via a submarine style door for a watertight bulkhead.  Next is the master head with a Corian countertop, large sink, and electric Jabso head.  The master stateroom has a king sized berth.  Long cabin trunk windows provide excellent natural lighting.  The main salon features a dinette arrangement starboard and galley alongside to port.  The Scotia 44 is a true deck salon with eye-level, panoramic view.  Athwartship of the companionway is the navigation station with inside steering via the autopilot controls.  Aft of the companionway and below the cockpit is the guest stateroom with a double berth and head.

Master Stateroom

Between the master head and main bulkheads is the roomy master stateroom with a large king sized, fore and aft berth to starboard, and spacious storage portside.  The berth has a removable insert into which a nightstand fits.  Underneath the master berth is incredible 360 degree access to the twin 25 diesel engines.  A circular stainless steel Rutgerson hatch provides ventilation.

Guest Stateroom

Aft of the companionway is a full width guest stateroom with a 7' 9" long and 4' 4" wide berth, vanity, and settee.  There are five Rutgerson portholes and one hatch to the cockpit.  Also forced ventilation circulates air.  The guest head is portside with a sink and electric Jabso head.

Main Salon

The main salon has a U-shaped settee that seats seven people starboardside.  The dinette table has teak leaves with white ash fiddles and base.  The leaves slide open for a liquor compartment.  The starboardside settee partition can be arranged as upper and lower bunk berths.  There is superb storage in the white oak cabinetry along the ceilings.  Underneath the floor boards are two 25 gallon diesel tanks which connect to a 100 gallon main tank - more on the details of this arrangement in the mechanical section.  The eye-level, panoramic view is exceptional while underway or in port.


Along the portside is the L-shaped galley with a Corian countertop, Isotherm freezer, Force 10 3-burner stovetop and oven, double stainless steel sinks, and deep ice box for storage or day sailing.  Storage and a hideaway waste bin lie below the counter top.  Centerline, an Isotherm 12V DC / 120V AC refrigeration unit slides out from underneath the settee arrangement.  A square Rutgerson hatch is overhead for ventilation.  There is 6' 5" headroom. 

Inside Helm / Navigation Station

Headroom rises to 8' underneath the deck salon as you reach the companionway and navigation station area.  Two steps up, the portside navigation station has a transparent, military style chart table, fold-up teak seat, and raised floor for an eye level, panoramic view of the horizon through the doghouse windows.  With autopilot controls, one can safely navigate offshore from the warmth and comfort of the interior helm station.

The Scotia 44’s cockpit has a teak sole and centerline molded table where the engine controls and gauges are mounted.  Twin helms provide excellent visibility and versatility while steering from the cockpit.  The cockpit well drains through the transom which can be lowered to form swim steps.

Design Philosophy

The lines of the Scotia 44 follow the latest developments in high performance naval architecture while providing maximum protection from the harsh elements of offshore sailing.  Her plumb bow and reverse transom maximize waterline length as well as interior space.  Her cross sections ar
