I also have been a fan of the Caliber boats with the tankage serving as additional safety hulls. You can't beat that for true blue water cruising..
We chartered an IP 380 and what storage areas, real bilge, effective rig great ride.... But back to the W.A.F. Morgan Catalina 44
Note that the 440 is a VERY differnt boat from the 445.

The 440 is a live aboard, comfortable cruiser. The 445 is a rocket meant for coastal racing (though I can make a very strong argument that you can take that boat as blue water as you want).

Just fyi.
