The Boréal 44 is a 13.80m yacht, lifting keel aluminium construction. She is a world reference in the long-trip yachts’ category.
The construction includes an ice icebreaker stem and two watertight bulkheads, one at the front, one at the back,to provide compartmentalisation in case of flooding.
A doghouse with a watertight door provides a 360° view on the deck, increasing both security and comfort, and enabling the crew to maintain long watch.
3 double cabins can comfortably accommodate 6 people. A Refleks oil stove with radiators in each cabin ensures a dry and warm interior; much appreciated for navigation farther north.
600l of diesel and 800l of water (plus an extra additional 120l of water and 80l of diesel for emergency) provide a long autonomy.
