Manufacturer Provided Description
 J-44 is designed for liveaboard comfort, is easily handled by two, with offshore durability and speed to win Fastnet and Sydney-Hobart races. Sailing World's 1990 'Overall Boat-of-the Year' revived the look of classic American cruising yacht interiors. Styling is light and open, clean and functional. The security and layout of her J-shaped galley has also become the standard for offshore cruising design. Visibility and ventilation are exceptional at anchor and at sea, making it possible to live aboard for long periods. J-44 was inspired by an analysis of the 1988 Bermuda Race which determined that dual-purpose racer-cruisers between 41 and 45 feet were the most popular offshore type and size. Since introduction in 1988, J-44 has become the most successful large, offshore American design ever, with nearly 70 boats launched. These owners in 14 countries have amassed an enviable record of ocean passages, regatta wins and cruising adventures. The J-44 Class Association is an active group of dedicated and outstanding sailors who add greatly to the satisfaction of sailing the boat. Superior design and construction mean better performance in the most demanding offshore conditions. J-44s won the 1991 Fastnet Race (IMS Overall) and the 1992 Sydney-Hobart (IMS-1). J-44s slide through waves with little pitch and roll, responding effortlessly to the wheel. These superb sailing and handling qualities are different from traditional cruising and IOR-IMS "rule" boats in two very important ways: J-44s have a balanced hull design with a long waterline relative to beam providing directional stability in large waves, and J-44s have a low center of gravity and low moments of inertia achieved with a deep lead keel, hand-laid, Baltek-cored hull & deck construction and a beautifully engineered Hall rig. J-44s sail well in the extremes. This means more sailing, less motoring, and safe passages.
