The Brewer 44 has a well-earned reputation for strength, safety, and proper sea keeping ability. She is an upscale version of the very popular Brewer 12.8 meter model. The design offers a large cockpit, big and easily accessed engine room, generous tankage and refrigeration systems and a spacious interior layout that affords excellent comfort with plenty of storage for both cruising and living aboard. The transom was also redesigned for a more modern appearance with a functional swim platform at the stern, If you are searching for a turn-key vessel in this size and class, do not hesitate to inquire about “Magic”......you will not be disappointed!
