Rustler 44

Ocean-capable raised saloon bluewater cruiser

Powerful, comfortable and exceptionally well-behaved, the Rustler 44 is a welcome addition to the ranks of classic bluewater cruising yachts. Superb performance combined with comfortable motion underway will allow easy long distance passage making.

Rustler yachts always feature their own distinctive character as well as being built to take the worst of the prevailing seas. The Rustler’s heavy weather characteristics are why many are sailed on long distance cruises. This is a fine-looking aft cockpit yacht, with moderate height to the topsides, a sweet sheer line, pleasing overhangs, and relatively low cabin top. A long fin keel combined with a skeg-hung rudder gives huge reassurance in terms of safety.

Below decks, the Rustler 44 features a spacious, open plan saloon designed with style for comfort. The large, beautifully finished saloon table can comfortably seat eight. The Rustler 44’s interior is spacious. A galley and two seating areas make both entertaining and living in harbour everything you desire. A raised chart table allows good views whilst sailing, which is complemented by the views from the raised saloon area.

Designed for living in safety and comfort under way, the accommodation is practical but attractive. Vast cabins make living onboard a comfortable experience.

A yacht for the discerning owner with a love of sound, traditional craftsmanship”
