A major breakthrough in deck ergonomics in the 44’ sector, the four-winch system was first developed on the Solaris 60 and proved so successful that all Solaris from 44’ upwards now feature this concept, with all lines running below deck. The helmsman of a Solaris 44 can control the sheets, halyards and reef lines effectively single-handing the boat. The hull shape is an evolution of the Solaris 55 with a soft chine in the stern quarter and a full width deck at the transom. The maximum aft beam is further enhanced by twin rudders which provide superior grip and directional stability when powered-up. There is a large sail locker forward plus a large aft locker with top access from the cockpit for liferaft storage, inflatable and much more.
The interior is light, spacious and liveable and benefits from an L-shaped galley to port and a choice of interior woods. Careful consideration has been given to weight distribution to ensure perfect balance at sea, and the 44 shares all the same structural advantages of her larger sisters, such as composite main and forward bulkheads, fully-laminated bulkheads with no inner mouldings, E-glass and carbon fibre longitudinal and transverse structural floor beams resin bonded to the hull, inox mast base above the keel and full-width composite chain plates.
