Hull and Deck Construction

The 44.7's hull is solid fiberglass with a laminated structural hull liner for load bearing and distribution eliminating worries of moisture and wet coring The deck is fiberglass sandwich with a balsa core with a unidirectional weave. All the bulkheads are bonded 360 degrees to the hull and a deck for structural strength. The ends of all wood floorboards and panels are sealed. which means they will not swell. The fuel and water tanks are on centerline to improve sea handling and performance. The overall quality of the wood and glasswork below is excellent, reflecting the experience of the boatbuilders in Beneteau's assembly plant in France, where the 44.7 were built exclusively. 

Engine and Mechanical Systems:

It's easy to tell that the 44.7 was designed with input form owners of previous Beneteaus; access to the engine was among the best we've seen. Two gas pistons lift the companionway stairs assembly and reveal an engine with a large shield covering belts and other moving parts. The water pump faces forward, which allows for the impeller to be changed out without removing the entire unit.  Access to all the engine filters is also excellent. The standard engines is a 40 hp. Volvo 2040 powering a sail drive unit; this boat has the upgraded optional 55hp. Volvo D255.
