This fast, safe and comfortable yacht will take you anywhere your cruising dreams desire. Enjoy her seakindly motion at sea as well as her comfortable accommodations at anchor. She is well equipped and ready to go!
The Pacific Seacraft 44 is designed and built with emphasis on cruising safely and in comfort. Significant design modifications give the 44 uncommon balance in a yacht this size, with a reassuring motion even in heavy conditions. Designed as the ultimate cruising sailboat for the serious cruising sailor, she can accept virtually all cruising accessories currently available, such as fresh water makers, generators and today's modern electronic equipment. Below decks is a warm blend of rich hand-finished teak and designer fabrics. There is a full J-shaped gourmet galley - good for entertaining, yet functional at sea - two private staterooms, and a main salon you can be proud to live in. The Crealock "canoe" stern, admired for its esthetics, offers necessary reserve buoyancy without presenting too much surface to following seas. The stern has more effect on the motion of a yacht than the bow, and in breaking following seas the stern will perform like a bow.
Vessel Walkthrough & Accomodations
Starting forward in the bow is access to the divided anchor locker through the forward bulkhead teak doors. Just aft is the double berth offset towards port with stowage under and on shelves, a small built-in changing seat, and a large cedar lined hanging locker. Aft to port of the Stateroom is the Guest Head with shower. Next aft is the main Salon with a U-shaped seating area with a large drop down table which converts to a double berth. Across is a straight settee. On the forward bulkhead is a 22” LCD display with DVD player and Surround Sound. The main salon is typical Pacific Seacraft, fine joinery, varnished teak and matte white accents. Next aft to starboard is the very complete navigation station equipped with up-to-date electronics and a very comfortable Ultra leather chair. Across is the J-Shaped Galley with double SS sinks on centerline and a large drop-in freezer and front-loading refrigerator with holding plates. At the aft end of the Galley is access to the Owner’s Stateroom. Behind the Nav Desk is access to the Owner’s Head with a separate stall shower. The Owner’s Stateroom includes a large double berth, abundant storage and a hanging locker.
Light and air are provided through fourteen opening ports and four deck hatches. Four dorade vents provide additional ventilation even in foul weather.
Fore-Cabin Stateroom and Head
GUEST STATEROOM: The forward cabin offers excellent accommodations and the fine teak joinery and furnishings make for an inviting living space. Good light and ventilation is provided by opening ports and hatches. Large hanging lockers, drawers and shelves hold clothing and gear while deep bin lockers provide huge amounts of long term storage space. The berth is a regularly shaped, offset to port double and is quite comfortable. A lounging seat with nearby vanity and mirror offers a place to sit and dress.
GUEST HEAD: The Guest Head is private to the forward cabin. It is roomy with ample storage space for towels, accessories and cleaning supplies. The counter has a stainless steel sink with pull out hand shower. Sliding door lockers and drawers are above and below the counter and outboard behind the marine head. A convenient teak seat folds down over the toilet when showering and all water drains through a teak grate into a shower sump.

Main Cabin - Salon
The Main Cabin has a comfortable, functional design and is well suited for passagemaking. Dinette to port with settee to starboard. Numerous and well positioned handrails are located throughout the interior spaces. Outboard of the starboard settee are large lockers and book shelves. Bin storage is located under and behind the settees and under the pilot berth. Locker access is through hatches under the settee cushions and through drop doors.
The Navigation Station with comfortable and secure captain's chair is to starboard and aft of the Main Salon. It has a lift up chart table with excellent storage for charts and gear. A set of drawers is centerline, opposite the passage from the chart table. Navigation electronics gear is built into removable panels outboard and electrical service panels hinge open for access.
The main Companionway to and from the cockpit is centerline. The Fisher Panda genset is under the bottom step area with easy access to day checks and filters. A large hanging locker with drain is to starboard alongside the steps. The aft Head is accessible from the main cabin through a door adjacent to the hanging locker. Movement about the main cabin is convenient and unrestricted. Hand holds are logically placed and the passages are wide and accommodating.
Exceptional wood work is everywhere. The combination of varnished teak and low maintenance white laminate makes for a pleasant living space that is easy to keep clean and neat. Every imaginable hidden space has been used for storage and is generally easy to access.
The Galley is well laid out with easy access to all prep stations. There are large counter spaces, a deep double stainless steel sink. SeaFrost 12 volt refrigeration, with holding plates in the independently controlled refrigerator and freezer compartments.
Force 10 three burner stove w/oven, microwave and huge amounts of storage space makes the Galley a joy to use. The storage space varies from easily accessible drawers, lockers and bins for everyday use items to secure compartments intended for long term and heavy item storage. There are two cutting boards, one custom to fit over the forward sink. There is fresh and salt water spigots at the sinks. There is factory custom overhead cabinet storage between the Galley and Settee.
The Galley has good passageway with both the dining area and the cockpit. The large counter top becomes an excellent, step saving serving location when dining at the main table in the Salon. The same counter area is just forward of the main companionway. Meals can be passed to those in the cockpit from the area at the base of the steps with ease.

Deck, Hull and Cockpit
HULL: The Pacific Seacraft 44 is engineered to be a true offshore cruising yacht. The hull is balsa cored to American Bureau of Shipping's offshore rule. It incorporates the now famous Crealock canoe stern admired for its aesthetic appeal and kind sea keeping characteristics. The Scheel Keel was a factory option installed on CELESTINA and allows sailing in shallow waters without sacrificing deep draft performance. A very substantial skeg flows out of the bustle making the transition from keel to rudder. The skeg, with its manganese bronze gudgeon, supports and protects the rudder and the prop.
DECK: CELESTINA has wide side decks with secure footing on anti-skid decking design. Heavy bow and stern pulpits are connected by double, coated lifelines. As with all Pacific Seacraft yachts, the lifelines are high and attached to 6" bulwarks. There are gates port and starboard near the aft. The wide side decks with the molded bulwarks, teak hand rails on cabin top, with mast pulpits and clear foredeck make for a secure sailing experience in any weather. All Sail controls are led to the cockpit reducing the need to go forward.
The Pacific Seacraft 44 has a balsa cored deck with plywood sandwich in high stress locations such as winch mounting locations. All deck hardware is thru bolted with backing plates. A very substantial double SS bow rollers with a 45lb CQR anchor with a twin capstan Lighthouse 1501 windlass with remote control. There is a third roller and rode locker located aft of the cockpit on the quarter deck. Also in the stern is a large propane locker with two 20 lb. tanks and assorted other gear.
COCKPIT: The cockpit seats are 7'8" long with molded-in contoured seat backs with SoPac bottom cushions. The seat back coamings are high, offering security and protection when under sail and comfortable seating. The cockpit feels safe and secure because of the combination of deep well, high coamings, and high lifelines. The step up to the side deck allows for safe passageway. There is a Whitlock pedastal steering with binnacle mounted compass, a full complement of navigation electronics and a fold-down table. There are two lockers and two storage cubbies in the cockpit. The starboard seat locker is huge and extends under the entire length of the cockpit. The lazarette under the helm seat houses the refrigeration compressor. The cubbies are in the coamings. The high bridge deck entrance to the cabin adds to the water tightness in stormy weather and is a perfect lookout perch under the large dodger as the autopilot steers. The bridge deck also gives the effect of seating around the entire perimeter of the cockpit.
