Sunbeam 44 has a stiff and strong hull with an extremely robust and non-distortional reinforcement, providing extra reliability. The hull is built by traditional handcraft and is reinforced in the keel and on the bow.
The high and optimised stability is a result of the special keel construction , a combination of led and cast iron. This gives the Sunbeam 44the exceptional characteristics of an Sports- Luxury – Cruiser.
There are separate double berths. Two more single berths can be made up in the saloon. The aft cabin is reachable from both sides.
Design, Building :
The high tech construction of the Sunbeam as modern trapezoidal framed yacht with lead keel, semi balanced rudder and half skeg, guarantees a low wetted area. The self-supporting hulls built with an extremely robust , torsionally stiff rib frame, with traditional longitudinal and athwart ships stringers for additional safety.
The hull is built in solid laminate in the hand lay up method and moulded in one piece. It is reinforced in the keel and collision areas in keeping with German Lloyd regulations. The deck is sandwich construction with aluminium reinforcement laminated under deck fittings. The hull to deck join is bolted , laminated and covered with an aluminium rubbing strake with a replaceable plastic insert strip. A collision bulkhead is provided in the fore ship.
The Sunbeam 44 shows excellent sailing qualities.
The optical appearance of the Sunbeam 44 is centred on the clean, very flat deck layout with the windscreen integrated into the cockpit coaming.
The central point on deck is the generous centre cockpit , with seals and benches arranged in a U form and a steering pedestal with all important, controls (halyards, sheets and traveller), within easy reach.
Most deck fittings are recessed into the deck . This allows safe movement on deck in a seaway and uncluttered space for relaxing on deck.
A bathing platform is built into the stern spoiler.
The sunbeam 44 offers comfortable living space for six people . In the owner’s version with exclusive lockable sleeping sections in fore ship and in the after cabin, each for two persons, as well as two further bunks in the saloon. The after cabin can be used by the owner as a second living area , with two extra seats and a standing headroom of 1.8m. The fore cabin also has a lounging area with a small table and seat as well as a generous double berth. Both the fore and the after cabins have their own hygiene areas with a convertible toilet, a wash basin and shower with pump out shower tray. These are directly accessible from the cabins.
Saloon has seating place for six to eight people.
The double – leaf folding table encompasses space for a mobile cool box , a bottle rack and three drawers.
In the galley a 120 litre refrigerator with bottle holder and eutectic plates, large work areas, double sink with pressured water system for cold and warm water and cupboards over the entire length of the galley . The work surface is of particularly durable Corian material.
