The Helia 44 is a fast cruising catamaran which will appeal both to sailing enthusiasts and to those seeking spacious and stylish accommodation.Despite the impressive volume and standard of accommodation, the Helia 44 has been engineered to be a lightweight boat, weighing just 10.8 tons when empty.
This and also the generously sized rig, with a fat headed mainsail gives her the ability to cover long distances under sail at impressive average speeds.
She offers many improvements compare to the previous model:
New Portholes: Redesigned portholes in the hulls to increase natural light by 30% and to improve the natural ventilation.
Redesigned bigger saloon: The newly recessed mast creates brilliant panoramic views from the saloon and allows even more natural light and extra seating
Redesigned Davits: New stainless steel davits on deck provide even greater strength and durability.
This unit was part of a professional charter fleet, where she received constantly high quality maintenance and was only slightly used. Both engines are showing very few hours of use.
