Location

Ipswich

The Peterson 44 was one of the early designs of Doug Peterson, a tough, seaworthy, ocean going cruiser with a fair turn of speed. She is also meant to be so well balanced that she can sail herself to windward.  This good example has had a major refit over the past 4 years with new electrics, engine, canvas work & much much more! A very rare find in British Waters!
