About the LR44
The new 44 is built on a super-efficient displacement hull, developed with Powerplay’s 20 years of experience building power cats. The hull is optimised for minimal drag, with a reversed bow for buoyancy and extended waterline length forward, plus docking keels and a protected prop for beaching. Each boat is built to AMSA commercial survey standards to provide an additional layer of robustness and allow commercial operations if one chose to.
HELM & FLYBRIDGE
Up top the flybridge again has another huge entertaining area, wet bar and centrally located helm with twin helm seats protected by high quality clears forward. There is a 12″ touchscreen chartplotter and integrated fishfinder, engine management screen, Yanmar VC10 electronic controls and hydraulic steering. There is access to the forward deck via forward steps down to the Muir anchor winch which can be controlled from an electric chain counter at the helm also.
SALOON & COCKPIT
The Saloon features two large opening hatches forward for natural ventilation, with massive panoramic views from windows all around and cooled by 20,000 BTU air-conditioning throughout. The comfortable saloon lounge and dining setting looks onto a flat screen TV and 10 speaker sound system, but can convert into another bed with a telescopic table.
The galley opens out into the cockpit and features all of the appliances you would expect at home, including a large upright refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, convection microwave oven and of course stove tops.
The owners master cabin features the huge king-sized bed, four hatches for natural ventilation plus air-conditioning, TV and a walk-in wardrobe for personal storage and an ensuite including a fresh water electric toilet.
While the guest cabins enjoy comfortable beds with large windows alongside.
