From The Owners

Purchased in 2015 by her second owners, Seascapes is a fine example of the aft cockpit Hunter 44. She is easily handled by one or two persons, and has two comfortable staterooms each with their own head and separate shower stall. She is being offered for sale by second owners who have lived aboard for about two years, regularly maintaining and upgrading systems, and have made functional additions and quality upgrades not often found on Hunter 44s.  The previous owner had Seascapes maintained at one of Maine’s best yards, where it was winterized and stored on the hard every winter.

She is currently awaiting her new owner in Hilton Head, South Carolina. 

Accommodations & Layout

Her aft cockpit design allows for a comfortable and functional deck layout, while isolating her crew from the elements over the center cockpit design of the Hunter 44 Deck Salon.  She sleeps a total of six - two in comfortable separate sleeping cabins - each with their own head & separate showers, and offers three additional berths in main salon.

Starting below in the bow, she has a large stateroom with a V-berth forward.  There is a seat & hanging locker to starboard, along with assorted additional storage throughout.  The en-suite head with separate shower follows to port as you head aft.  Stepping further aft and up one step brings you in to her large main salon area which has a straight settee to starboard, and a large U-shaped settee to port with a functional table for entertaining your crew and guests.  Moving further aft brings you to the navigation station to starboard.  Slightly further aft to port is the large L-shaped galley.  Lots of cold storage, dry storage, and counter space is at hand for preparing your meals.  Opposite the galley is the aft head with separate shower.  Beyond the head you enter the master stateroom by stepping down one step which opens to reveal a large island berth and functional storage throughout.  Engine is accessed under the companionway steps and from the forward bulkhead in the master stateroom.

Manufacturer Provided DescriptionThe 44 Aft Cockpit Cruiser shares the same performance hull with the 44 Deck Saloon, but comes in a lower profile. The boat was drawn by noted designer Glenn Henderson and sports some rather intricate features not usually found on cruising boats of this size. First is a "Bow Hollow", which increases the flow of water in the forward sections and increases hull speed. Second is a "Stern Reflex", which allows a flatter exit wake and less turbulence. This also increases performance. Hunter has learned much from the recent IOR boats and has incorporated some into cruising boats to enhance their performance without sacrificing comfort and the ease of sailing. The 44 Aft Cockpit offers superior amenities and comfort. A unique forward stateroom layout featuring a Pullman style double berth provides plenty of space and storage. The salon is full beam and allows for entertaining and dining in grand style. Aft, is the master stateroom, which is enhanced by carrying the wide beam well aft. Inner spring mattresses are standard and the finely finished teak interior and cabinetry are first-class.


Please note that the owners have requested 24 hours notice for all showings.  We look forward to having you aboard!
