Seller's Description

This is a 1980 44 F&C Ketch sailboat. The boat is designed by German Frers. It is a moderate weight sailboat that is a reasonably good performer.

It has a monohull fin keel with a rudder on the skeg. A rare yacht built in Argentina by Frers and Cibils. Lovely lines, rich wood interior, and great sailing characteristics. This sailboat is best suited for bluewater cruising. Only 60 of these sailboats have ever been built.

Helm area companionway leads down to a navigators cabin (as well as main cabin) with large berths on port and starboard

Forward of the main helm area is a second companionway that leads to the galley to port and Nav station to starboard. Forward of the galley on port side is a very large dining settee that converts to a large double, and across to starboard are over and under pilot berths.

Beyond the main salon to port is a head, sink, and shower, with storage across to the starboard side.

Big powerful offshore ketch, German Frers designed originally for his father, beautiful lines with tumblehome, pretty overhangs, and versatile ketch rig.

Companionways at the cockpit and forward at the main salon. Definitely an offshore capable vessel, but easily weekend cruised and day sailed.

Included are three spinnakers and all of the hardware associated also a storm and a regular mainsail and 4 jibs

Very pretty lines and a head turner where ever she goes. “All new stainless standing rigging “

Engine electrical rebuild at purchase five years ago moral Bay boat yard rewired primary starting system, double lot starting cables, new relocating starter button close to starter, rework primary electric panel to isolate starter power. The Generator was totally rebuilt at purchase five years ago.

Calculations

Hull Speed
8.3 kn
Classic: 7.67 kn

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Formula

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

8.27 knots
Classic formula: 7.67 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
16.7
16-20: good performance

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

Formula

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
16.69
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
42.3
>40: stiffer, more powerful

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Formula

Ballast / Displacement * 100

42.29
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
272.2
200-275: moderate

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

Formula

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
272.16
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
31.5
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Formula

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
31.45
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
1.8
<2.0: better suited for ocean passages

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

Formula

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
1.8
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
