CAL 44 Yacht Aft Cockpit for Good Reasons (1983)

Hull of the Cal 44

Experience eschews a midship cockpit on a yacht this size.

The designers of the new CAL 44, C. Raymond Hunt Associates of Boston, proposed an aft cockpit for several good reasons.

The first: the skipper can see what the crew is doing on all maneuvers without turning completely around.

Secondly: the aft cockpit allows the main accommodations to be near the center of the yacht where beam is greatest and motion least.

A third reason is purely aesthetic: lower freeboard and a more traditional shape to the house.

The accommodation is designed for spacious comfort for two couples. Two double staterooms, two heads, two stall showers, and a bright, airy, elevated salon that can be seen out of, without the gun turret feeling many boats impart.
