Beneteau 44 CC
By Jack Hornor
Revised by BoatUS editors in October 2012
Despite the” trend toward sleeker aft cockpit models, there was a time when center cockpit designs dominated the cruising boat market – some smaller than 25 feet. The accommodation, visibility and security benefits of these designs continue to make them popular choices among long-term and weekend cruisers alike. Add to that the performance touch of the Bruce Farr design team, and it’s easy to see why the Beneteau 44 CC remains popular more than five years after production of the model was discontinued.
Normally I don’t find many center cockpit sailboats aesthetically pleasing. To my eye, Beneteau’s 440 aft cockpit version of this model is more handsome, but this is purely personal taste and has nothing to do with the merits of this design. To their credit, the design team did an admirable job with a difficult design task. The 44 CC has a pleasing, subtle sheer and the rather high freeboard is nicely disguised by a wide teak rub strake on the hull side. The overhangs are short, resulting in a contemporary look, and the bulk of the large trunk cabin is minimized by a gentle slope forward. My prejudices aside, it would be difficult to design a better looking center cockpit boat given this length restriction.
