1969 Spencer 44 Ketch


This center cockpit 44 ketch is in amazing condition. Over the last ten years all major systems have been upgraded.

Approaching this classic ketch, youll be taken aback by the its clean lines accented by bright-work that adds to the beauty. The ketch rig with the 130 % furling genoa, full batten main and mizzen sail provides flexibility of different sail plans and the 6.5′ deep modified full keel makes this vessel safe and stable in the most formidable conditions.

The construction of the solid 1.5 thick fiberglass hull is unique to Spencers sailboats constructed in three different sections and seamed together at the bulk heads make the strength of this boat unrivaled by any other fiberglass boat construction. This is a very dry boat, study and safe boat.

Passing by the pulpit that holds the two anchors, traveling midship and passed the mast to the double lined life line opening you cant help admiring the beautiful lines of this boat.

Boarding this vessel is easily accomplished and with a step over the coaming; high enough to provide a comfortable back while sitting on the cushioned cover lazarette lockers but not too high to prevent easy access to the cockpit. The cushioned lazarettes offers a wonderful place to stretch out and relax while keeping the helmsman company.

As you step into the spacious cockpit you are greeted by the helms station. The padded chair is located directly behind the binnacle that houses a VHF radio, chart plotter and radar screens located above the engine instrumentation and controls. The forward sight-line from the helm is unobstructed for a clear view.

This center cockpit has two companion ways: forward and aft. Each are beautiful teak swinging doors with a combination lock providing security and ease of entry.

The cockpit bimini provides the cover and the supports for enclosing the total cockpit, covering the companionway hatches with canvas, isinglass or screens which are included and are in excellent condition.

Looking aft from the cockpit, pass the aft cabin youll spy a large storage locker that contains the propane tanks and a stainless-steel davit for tender transport along with an outboard motor mount.

Heading through the aft cabin companionway and down the sculptured staircase youll enter a compartment that has a large queen size berth, storage drawers below it, a hanging closet and en-suite head with chest of drawers.

A passageway creates access to the main salon. As you venture along the passageway you’ll encounter the doors to a very roomy engine room that has headroom that easily allows a 6 person to stand.  Here is where the Perkin 236 77 hp. engine, with 330 hrs. on it and the Westerbeke 5 kW generator with 470 hrs. are located.

Entering the main salon, you are taken aback by the beauty of this craft, If you are a lover of the classic warm wood trimmed layouts with the teak and holly soles this bright and homey interior will blow you away. The salon has over a 68 head clearance which allow the placement of large ports with hinged opening provides abundance of natural light and a cross breeze.

Starting on your starboard side the beautifully varnished full chart table with 6 full length chart drawers creates a fantastic navigation station. Heading to the port side, passing the stairs to the cockpit you will enter the U shape galley.

The galley has a top and side access refrigerator along with a top access freezer, both are very deep and they have new cold plates. There is a microwave nicely tucked above the refrigerator and freezer. Perpendicular to the freezer is a three-burner gimbal  stove and oven. Completing the galley is a double stainless steel sink.

Move forward from the galley, on the port side is the 6-person setter that has an adjust
