Hi

I'm looking buying the jeanneau 44i within the next few weeks, does anyone have any experience of this make and model, we really like the look of this particular boat but cant find any reviews.

Thanks in advance.

Stewart: I have a 2010 44i based on Lake St. Clair in Michigan. It is a great boat, very sea-kindly, comfortable and fast. We choose this over the 45DS because of the ease of getting in and out of the cockpit and because it is all one level down below. Every time (and I mean EVERY TIME) we are out sailing we get hailed from another boat or the shore with "That's a beautiful boat."

Masod, couldn't help but notice that you registered in 2004 and this is your first post.

Welcome to Sailnet, I guess.

Far Cry: I usually just lurk and do not post. I had a Sun Fast 37 until 2006 when I bought a Catalina 380 which I just traded up from to the 44I.

I've spent some time on a 44i here at CYOA (charter company). I do like having a one level floor below and the galley layout as well. It makes the interior seem larger when compared to the 45DS. The boat I've been on has green Awlgrip on her and really stands out in a fleet of white boats!

You've now double your post count too.

We had a 44i that we lived on and loved the boat. She handled well and had a lot of room as a liveaboard. I'd recommend them to anyone.

Hi byrsch

We have joined the Sunsail scheme and are now the owners of a 44i based in Vounaki which we are very pleased about.
Although not every one will agree the scheme suits us at this moment in time.

Hi Bradders;

My dad always said beauty is in the eye of the beholder. As long as you love the boat and enjoy it she will be a thing of beauty. We no longer have a boat but out of the three we owned it is the one I miss the most.

I hope you have a long and success relationship with her.

Bradders, go the site recommended by blt2ski above and register your boat. Try to establish contact with other owners, comes in handy when you need advice specific to your boat. I always joined the owners sites on any boat I have owned and received a lot of good advice (free) from fellow members.
