A44 A44
A unique experience in pleasure and performance

The Advanced Yacht concept has produced a sporty cruiser inspired by light, modern performance opens with powerful waterlines that guarantee effortless planing and generous onboard spaces.

Biscontini Yacht Design - Roberto Biscontini

Sailing performance was one of the most important considerations during the design of the Advanced A44. While this yacht is not a pure racing machine, its hull lines, appendages and sail plan are clearly derived from our experience designing racing boats for the America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Races. The A44’s canoe body is wide and its maximum beam is carried all the way aft to favour righting and minimise drag at high speeds. The bulb keel’s draft is comparable to pure racers of similar size. In fact, we didn’t want to compromise on stability and hydrodynamic efficiency with a shallow draft. There are two rudders for maximum control, manoeuvrability and efficiency when heeled. The sail plan includes a square-top mainsail which considerably increases aerodynamic efficiency. Overall weight has been kept down by working together as a team on deck layout, interiors and structures, to give the Advanced A44 the performance and feel of a thoroughbred racer.

Nauta Design - Massimo Gino e Mario Pedol

Day sailers are ever more sought after- even by people who have larger and harder to care for yachts- and the market for this type of yacht is growing. The Advanced A44 is a true day sailer: sporty, fun and fast on the water. The hull, appendages and sail plan are by Roberto Biscontini, a well-known name in the world of performance sailing who designed the America’s Cup racer Il Moro di Venezia in 1989. He then went on to work with the Pact 95 team, Young America BMW Oracle Racing, Luna Rossa and Team New Zealand, and recently designed Volvo Open 70s with Camper Emirates Team New Zealand. Biscontini’s experience in the world of the most competitive modern regattas inspired the Advanced A44’s innovative hull shape: a plumb bow with fixed bowsprit for flying gennakers or Code Zeros and maximum beam carried all the way back to a strongly flared stern. These elements, derived from Biscontini’s racer designs, also make the Advanced A44 extremely liveable with a wide open stern area that is a real terrace on the sea, very enjoyable on day sailing trips and during the kinds of short cruises that this boat is perfect for. Nauta Design designed and styled the deck, coachroof and interiors for day use but they can also be adapted for short and medium range cruises. The wide stern is perfect for sunbathing while at anchor after a sail and the transom gunwale is padded so that it can be used as a backrest. Below deck an inviting open space has everything you need for both day sailing and short cruises: two double cabins, a head, galley and a square area with a winged table and two seats. To make the fore cabin more spacious, a lightweight partition aft of the saloon can be closed to create a spacious, airy owner’s suite. Furnishings and decor are in true Nauta Design style: modern, bright, comfortable and perfectly in tune with the boat’s sporty high performance lines. Both on deck and below the Advanced A44 is a quality build: dynamic and agile yet comfortable and relaxing.
