PACIFIC SEACRAFT 44

CIELO BLU

1993 • 44' (13.44 m) • Cruising Sailboat
United States

$215,000 USD

The largest model of one of the world's finest cruising boats, "CIELO BLU" is an excellent choice for bluewater cruising. These boats rarely come on the market. Her construction is to ABS offshore standards. She is well balanced and a pleasure to sail, plus fully equipped and well maintained. Designed by Bill Crealock, the Pacific Seacraft 44 is built with an emphasis on cruising safely and in comfort. Easily handled under power or sail, the 44 is a fast cruising yacht capable of making 175+ NM/day under sail in good conditions. "The Evolution of the Breed" as Mr. Crealock puts it, shows on closer examination some significant design modifications which give the 44 uncommon balance, with a reassuring motion - even in heavy sea conditions. The lines on the 44 are more powerful than on earlier designs. There is slightly less overhang and a longer waterline. Built with the now-famous Crealock canoe stern, admired by many for its aesthetic appeal, the Pacific Seacraft 44 is also an improvement over other double-enders and flat stern yachts: offering necessary reserve buoyancy without presenting too much surface to following seas. Many sailors consider that the stern has more effect on the motion of a yacht than does the bow, and in breaking following seas the PS-44's canoe stern 'will perform like a bow'.

On a passage going forward in rough weather, you will appreciate the 6 inch high bulwarks that totally enclose the deck, and the 30-inch high stainless steel rails and sturdy double lifelines.

No other production sailing yacht comes close to the overall quality of construction and quality of the equipment of the Pacific Seacraft 44. Solid cast and reinforced hatches, solid chromed bronze opening ports, substantial winches and bronze seacocks that are thru-bolted to the hull.

This is an opportunity to own a highly respected performance cruising cutter at an unbelievable price. This fast, safe and comfortable yacht will take you anywhere your cruising dreams desire. She is well equipped and ready to go. Call for an appointment to see her now!

HULL AND DECK

Her hull is hand-laminated biaxial fiberglass, balsa cored above the waterline to the American Bureau of Shipping's offshore rule. Her full skeg mounted rudder is supported by a high strength manganese bronze gudgeon. Vinyl ester resin was utilized for high blister resistance. Primary bulkheads are bonded into hull and deck and then thru-bolted in place.

Built for a life at sea, she incorporates her now famous canoe stern, which gives necessary reserve buoyancy without providing excessive stern area to following seas. This is a sailor's vessel! Unobstructed decks provide sure footing in all weather conditions. The high-backed cockpit coamings, deep well and wide bridge deck make for comfortable, secure seating while under sail or power. Seats are 7'8" long, so there is plenty of room to stretch out in comfort. There are seventeen opening ports and five hatches, which provides plenty of fresh air below decks. All cleats, ports, winches and chocks are chromed solid bronze. High (30") stanchions are vertically bolted to 6" bulwarks which completely encircle the deck. This makes for 36" lifelines- and safety. The bulwarks are capped with custom made teak cap rails with hand-fitted butterfly joints, another example of Pacific Seacraft's great attention to detail. Deck drains are molded in to keep the decks dry and the nonskid pattern is deep and sure-footed.
