Jim Taylor Designed 44’ Performance Day Boat

This new Jim Taylor 44-foot coastal racing/day boat is currently in the process of being built by Brooklin Boat Yard. This boat draws its lineage directly from previous Jim Taylor 49-footers DREADNOUGHT, BLACKFISH, and RASCAL. It has enough in the way of evolutionary design changes and direction of sailing focus to warrant its own category within the sailing world.

Graceful lines, white hull, varnished mahogany house sides, cockpit coamings, and toe rails keep the exterior appearance truly in the spirit of tradition class. A lithium ion battery bank supports a state of the art electric propulsion system. C-Zone touch screen controls will be integrated into a curly maple paneled interior that will blend 21st century luxuries with timeless craftsmanship.

Coming Spring 2021
The Taylor 44 is built by Brooklin Boatyard in Brooklin Maine. Established in 1960, the yard is an employee owned company specializing in custom yacht building (sail and power), design and restoration.
