Nautilus Yacht Management is proud to present market this beautifully presented and appointed example of the renowned Brewer 44.

Designed by Ted Brewer and built by Ft. Myers Yacht & Shipbuilding (USA), this veritable little ship is an ideal choice for a couple of family seeking a strong, seaworthy and comfortable yacht at an affordable budget for their cruising adventures. Built at a time where quality came before price-point, and with attention to stability and seaworthiness in challenging weather conditions, this wonderful yacht will keep your family safe and continue to hold her value for many years to come with regular maintenance.

Sea Bella is an exceptionally well built and equipped cruising sailboat capable of a fast and safe offshore passage in a wide range of conditions.  The Brewer boats are durable heavy displacement boats made to be comfortable at sea. She has been sailed by Kathy and Scott for 6 years and most recently from California to her present location, sailing 12,000 miles in the last 3 years. Scott is a 100 ton USCG Captain as well as an industrial engineer, taking great care of her. Sea Bella is in her prime condition and not like other boats that are still existing in decades old equipment. She is equipped to be an offshore boat to sail around the world. Redundancies exist in most systems as well as an impressive replacement parts inventory. The sellers (Scott and Kathy), realizing they will be at sea for the long term, are upgrading to a high performance Catamaran.

The Brewer 44 is a Center cockpit cutter, designed by the late and prolific Ted Brewer. She boasts a 37.14 Comfort Ratio, making her very comfortable at sea and very stable. Sea Bella’s newer sails leave her with many options in multiple weather conditions at sea. The cutter rig, as well as the triple reefs available in the main, means she is comfortable even in a big blow. The asymmetrical spinnaker is easily flown to achieve hull speed even in lighter winds. The boat has a shoal draft keel making it easy to anchor close to shore. She has a swing down center board that allows sailing close to the wind. The center board system works flawlessly. This boat does NOT have a bolt-on keel. The solid glass hull encapsulated keel means no keel bolts to rust. 

The entire cabin is designed for ultimate comfort at sea as well as at anchor. The Center cockpit is one of the top cockpit designs and holds 8 comfortably for social hour or sleeps 2 for general sleeping or underway. The center cockpit also creates a comfortable aft master cabin with a bed wider than a Cal King. The mattress was made custom in San Diego by a professional marine bed company. It is a modern “bed mattress” that is 17cm thick.  Yes, good enough to live on. 

Nearly every system has been replaced, installed new, or upgraded between 2019 and today, making Sea Bella one of the safest and most well-equipped boats in her class.  The added stainless arch at the stern is a huge tool for managing the dinghy and power systems. The arch was built in Mexico in 2019 and provides solid rails to mid-ship for safety at sea. She is ready TODAY to cross oceans or relax by your favorite island.

Sea Bella’s engine and transmission are in great shape and the transmission is only 6 years old. The Perkins 4.236 is an 85hp naturally aspirated engine. This engine currently reads 4200 hours and should go at least another 5000 hours before haul out.  The boat’s entire fresh water plumbing was replaced in 2023 with Pex type tubing and new membranes June 2024.

Sea Bella will have a very comprehensive turn over to the new owner by Scott, the captain. Her systems are not complex, and she is easy to maintain and sail.   

NOTE: Sea Bella is a USA flagged vessel that entered French Polynesia on March 2023 sailing from Mexico. In April 2024, she continued her westward route, currently sailing from Tonga to Fiji. If the boat is not sold in Fiji by early 2025 the present owners will continue happily with her going westward in their circumnavigation and we will update her location as she reaches each new destination.
