VERSA HELM DESIGN – BECAUSE ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL The new 442 delivers the most expansive sight lines in the catamaran industry today. The flow and openness between the main salon and the cockpit are superb, and her permanent up and down helm stations take the ground breaking Versa-Helm design to an entire new level. Spitting rain?

Her self-tending blade jib makes tacking a simple matter of turning over the helm. All of her reefing and sail...

Exposure to bad weather on the 442 is minimized while your ability to sail away from the worst is maximized. But sailing fast isn’t enough, is it? No catamaran should brag about being the first at anchor if she’s not also a sheer delight to live on. That’s why the 442 is the most gracious live-aboard 44 foot performance catamaran we could possibly design. Sailing fast is fun and a lot safer than sailing slow She’s a pleasure to move about on, to sleep on, cook, lounge, bathe, dine and entertain friends and family. There is a place to store everything on the 442, and a lot of places to just...
