This Ted Brewer 44 is a unique custom design built specifically for a cruising couple with comfort and safety foremost in mind. She is a big powerful, stable vessel with a beautiful flush deck forward and a gorgeous pilothouse and inside steering. This is not your typical pilothouse; visibility/safety/comfort is all there. Line of site is also incredible. Instead of huge windows that can spell disaster, this design incorporates proper thought compromising nothing. The interior is as beautiful as the sheer line and flush deck. There are really incredible deck beams that make you know you are on a good ship. The joinery is exceedingly perfect and the rich teak and mahagany is offset with white bulkheads and beamed ceilings. The solid red oak planking for the cabin sole is beyond your imagination. The cushions are classic forest green Ultrasuede. All the furniture is built into the boat and fiberglassed to the hull side creating a monolithic structure that feels substantial. She is truly an incredible voyaging platform and a ship in which you will always feel secure. She is a big boat for 44 feet. The interior volume is maximized to give two people amazing accommodations for extended voyaging in pretty much any climate. She was built in the Pacific Northwest where the weather is often made for a pilothouse! There is a beautiful master stateroom and berthing accommodations for four additional crew or guests. The boat is designed for that cruising couple who might have crew on a passage or visiting family for short periods.
There is a beautiful aft cabin with a double berth and ensuite head and there are four single berths for crew or guests. This vessel is very nicely equipped with many upgrades and all amenities. She has air conditioning, heat, water maker, big generator, washer and dryer, stall shower, electric toilet, ALL NEW GARMIN Electronics (Chartplotter, Radar, Wind/Depth), great NEW sail inventory, New Canvas, New Running Rigging, and beautiful interior with great ambiance. She is a boat you must consider if you want to live aboard and sail far.
Victory was purchased in 2003 for exactly this intended purpose. Her owners purchased her from her original builder owner. They actually fell in love with the builder and with the boat. Like so many cruising plans, life got in the way. Victory has been enjoyed primarily in the Chesapeake Bay since she was shipped from the Pacific Northwest in 2003. It has been ten years during which time, she has been loved well and upgraded by an experienced sailor. She did enjoy one summer cruise to Maine in 2011 and a friend of ours sailed her down to Annapolis in November 2012. Then her Current Owner purchased her and only sailed the Bay. TWO BOAT OWNER WANTS HER SOLD.
Over the years, from 2004 and right up to the present, she enjoyed a LOT of attention. Victory definitely got worked on and upgraded more than she was sailed, but that is a good thing, as you are the beneficiary of so much thoughful work, not to mention, a lot of money well spent making the boat as perfect as she is today.
Here are just some highlights:
These are just some of the highlights, the big items, and there have been dozens of little improvements that make this boat extra special. She is a lovely home and a wonderful voyaging platform. So read the full specs. You’ll want to own her and maybe sail far, maybe end up back in the Pacific Northwest. She’s certainly a wonderful offering.
Let’s walkthough the vessel starting at the companionway that leads from the cockpit into the spacious pilothouse with it’s inside steering station located on the port side with good visibility. This vessel has a large comfortable navigation station adjacent to the inside steering and engine controls as well as a chart table, complete navigation and communications equipment. Just aft of the nav station is a large hanging locker. To Starboard is a long settee sea berth and a pilot berth outboard with a lee cloth. These two berths are comfortable sleeping berths on a passage with foam cushions.
The Master Stateroom is accessed aft to port with two steps down. It is a lovely cabin with a double berth to port that is really comfortable. It is six feet long with a custom six inch multi-density foam mattress! There is also an ensuite head with a toilet and sink and two large hanging lockers. There is massive storage within this cabin.
The Galley is forward of pilot house and it is also two steps down which is what gives you the acres of flush deck forward and beautiful sheer line. The galley is a u-shaped galley with excellent storage and amenities. There is even a washing machine and a dryer on the starboard side adjacent to the galley. The counter surface is gorgeous rock hard maple finished in epoxy. The dinette is truly wonderful on this boat making it much more home like than most sail boats. It is a real dinette like a booth in a diner. The custom teak table is built as fine furniture. It is a fixed dining table and it is a comfortable place for four enjoy a special dinner. Adjacent the dinette is another settee with a pilot berth outboard. Pilot berths are something that has been sacrificed in yacht design in recent years and you will be amazed at how useful the space is whether for extra crew and their gear, or for stowing all manner of inventory in a space that is easily accessed. Of course storage is maximized everywhere in this dining area and there is even a custom soapstone fireplace!
Forward of this salon/dining room, there is a bulkhead with a door leading to an amazing large head with a huge shower to port and a sink and toilet to starboard. This head is designed more for while at anchor and it is a really nice big space.
Next forward is a forepeak storage area with a workshop and an area for extra sails and rigging and everything you need on a voyaging sailboat. At the very forward end of the forepeak is a door to the chain locker.
So you see, the boat is quite unique and it is laid out to maximize the space for a cruising couple. The boat is built to carry a huge payload of everything you could need, and all that you could want. You can load the boat with everything you own and she’ll still sit on her lines and sail comfortably and safely.
What makes the boat really special is the ambiance created by the interesting layout and the incredible teak joinery in a Herreshoff style with the white bulkheads that make everything bright and really sets off the fine furniture? The beautiful deck beans and ceiling staving is just so wonderful, you will feel like you are on the HMS Surprise in Master and Commander. The white bulkheads and the deck beams and ceiling are all finished with sprayed on Awlgrip paint. The cabin sole is solid 13/16” red oak planking, which is just like a big ship!
The cabin lighting adds to the ambiance with bulkhead mounted fixtures with lamp shades. The dining area has a beautiful leaded glass fixture with LED lights. The galley has dome lights as do the heads. There are red lights in key areas for night sailing. There are also five deck prisms located in aft head, master stateroom, salon, and forward head as well as the galley. These prisms provided wonderful light and all have been rebedded. There are also six traditional oil lamps that contribute to the ambiance. They create a surprising amount of light reflecting of the white surfaces and provide warmth on a chilly night.
The owners have enjoyed all this unique vessel has to offer and delight in the comfort factor, which is extremely high. They feel safe in all conditions aboard their ship, and they have enjoyed many a sundowner on the “front porch” and hot shower in the cockpit with the privacy of the weather cloths! They’ve even enjoyed many a lobster dinner in the cockpit on their last trip to Maine!
The fully equipped galley is to port two steps down from the pilot house.
