This boat, aside from the deck issue (which we are being compensated for after getting two quotes) is impeccable. She is meticulously maintained (just how we like 'em!), and has just about everything we were looking for. More space, two heads, cutter rig option, center cockpit, swim scoop, lots of deck space, low engine hours, decent canvas, and the ability to control all sails from the cockpit...in other words, the bones of a great family cruising boat. She has a gorgeous interior with a nice, spacious layout, a U-shaped galley (something we really wanted), an aft suite with a king size bed, two heads and TONS of storage. Did I mention how much we love her cockpit? It is the very best feature of this boat because it is HUGE. HUGE. Perfect for entertaining and containing little rug rats. We loved the Brewer 44 design from the minute we set foot on her and feel 100% confident that this is the boat for us. In fact, she's kinda like Rasmus on steroids... Did I mention that the Brewer is considered one of the 10 Best Center Cockpit Cruising Boats? No surprise why; they are strong, stout and fast.
