Built by sailors for sailors, the Vision 444 has been inspired by thousands of miles spent at sea understanding the demands of a vessel and her crew, years of experience building custom catamarans, and a passion to produce the perfect blue water cruiser. Boat builder James Turner and Vision Yachts have created this 44’4” lightweight performance vessel with unique features and an impressive standard inventory that sets this catamaran above the rest.
Cabinets Dedicated to Specific Tasks
The Vision 444 is constructed with an innovative resin infusion technology with all support struts and davits made from advanced composite and integrated into the Vision 444 to create a strong yet lightweight vessel. All furniture is structurally bonded to the hull in a very ergonomic design.
The layout of the 444 has been carefully thought through with every detail… The midship service lockers in each hull offer easy access to shut off valves, filters, sea strainers, & pumps. There are only two bilges in each hull, one in the service locker and one in the engine room. Fuel line hoses and electrical wiring have their own dedicated conduits. The Lithium Ion batteries are under the saloon seats, and the engines are under the bunks which allow comfortable, safe, and easy access. A bench seat in the engine room with dedicated tools, storage for spare parts, ventilation, and lighting make working on your engines a breeze. Access to the rudder system is in the starboard stern locker. Every locker has ample space for access or storage, and a room in the starboard bow (accessed through the master shower walk through) contains a complete work bench with a vice and additional storage.
Ease of Operation. Everything on Hand
All windows and hatches in the saloon provide a crystal-clear vision of the horizon. The forward-facing navigation station in the saloon is perfectly placed. GPS can link up to the TV for a massive chart plotter display. The flooring is flush throughout and the L- shaped door between the cockpit and saloon doubles the space while open and offers that indoor/outdoor living style.
The side access door is great for boarding, loading, and accessibility. Wide level decks are clear of all running rigging, and the flush mount hatches give you the confidence to move around safely. Two standard electric winches and running rigging led back to the helm provide ease of operation for single-handed sailing. The mainsheet bridle system (eliminating the traveler and tracks) is simple to use in conjunction with the self-tacking jib. Atkinson’s theory calibrated rudders help to maintain drive when going through tacks and jibes. The comfortable helm offers seating for two that has a commanding position with a view over both bows and 360-degree visibility.
Highest Quality of Finishes Throughout the Vessel
The deck sole in the cockpit, on side decking, and on the fore decks is EVA foam padding, a UV resistant material that is very resilient, like a high-quality yoga mat with great grip. The cockpit offers ample seating with a large teak table. Stainless steel tubing that retracts into the transom bulkhead provide safety when at sea.
In the saloon, the U-shaped settee is standard with leather and windows are single panel flat glass. All vertical finishes are quarter sawn reconstructed oak veneer with an oil finish which is easy to maintain or to replace without matching wood grains if needed. Quartz composite countertop with stainless steel refrigerator/freezer and all high-end appliances surrounded by stainless grab rails throughout give a beautiful open living environment and safety when under way.
