Helia 44 Quatuor (2018) 'Altair'
Overview

Helia 44 Quatuor ExteriorOur new BVI cruising catamaran – the Helia 44 Quatuor – invites you to cruise in harmony with the beauty of your surroundings. Designed for maximum living space and boasting beautiful natural light throughout its interior, this elegant and luxuriously appointed catamaran also delivers dynamic performance at sea.

Immerse yourself in the panoramic 360° views made possible by the expansive saloon windows and integrated mast foot, marvel at the responsive handling in the spacious helm station, or surrender your cares as you relax in the cockpit or indulgent lounge deck. This cruising catamaran now has new features including an extra cockpit bench seat and additional davits. This catamaran also has a propane Barbecue to help maximise your outdoor living!

The Fountaine Pajot designers have provided a level deck to walk between the cockpit and the saloon, which opens up to give a true al fresco ambience to the saloon at anchor, and terrific communication and conviviality between the saloon, cockpit and helm position underway. The helm position is unique, in the way that it is both part of the cockpit, and part of the upper deck, which enables the skipper ( and two others) to sit at the helm, with unhindered 360 degree vision, whilst at the same time, being connected with the crew and activity in the saloon and cockpit. Next to the helm position is a sun deck, which makes for very sociable sailing.

All sailing control lines are led back to the winches just forward of the helm position on this Helia 44. The design allows Captain or crew to handle the sails, without cluttering the helm position itself with lines. With a powerful autopilot, and electric winch to hoist the mainsail, this yacht is easily sailed short-handed, and her 1,237 sq.ft of sail area, coupled with a 10.8-ton displacement, and outstanding bridge deck clearance, makes her fast and comfortable under sail

Worthy of Fountaine-Pajot’s prestigious Flagship status, the Helia 44 Quatuor represents an entirely new level in cruising lifestyles.

Helia 44 Quatuor (2018) 'Altair' Reviews
Laura & Jeff Gillham, February 2019

Overall FANTASTIC experience! From booking to making arrangements online, to the on-site service and experience at Nanny Cay, we could not have asked for more. Our boat, ALTAIR was incredible and for our family of 9, we couldn’t have been more comfortable. The kitchen is outfitted with every possible appliance and cooking utensil you could ask for. And the living space was spacious and perfect for group dining and interaction. The sleeping quarters and bathrooms were impeccable. The team at Horizon provided first class service at every interaction, and when we had a slight issue with our tender, they had a part to us and had it fixed within a few short hours. The boat briefing was really well done and “extra” briefing on fishing for our kids was most appreciated.

We loved every minute and are counting the days until we can return again. We won’t charter through anyone else but Horizon after this experience. Well done, Team Horizon!
