“Sailing with a furling boom makes hoisting, reefing and lowering the mainsail very easy in all conditions. The boat can be sailed single handed without any problems.”
“With an array of cutting-edge features, the Hélia 44 is in many ways as revolutionary as the sleekest carbon racing cat. The result is a boat that is not only fun to sail, but more user-friendly than ever for the crew.”
“Structurally, the Berret Racoupeau design is tough and well engineered, which should come as no surprise given Fountaine Pajot’s position as one of the world’s leading multihull manufacturers…”
“Gone are the cramped and lonely multihull helm stations of old. The Hélia boasts an expansive helming bench with plenty of room for a couple of friends to keep you company and a stolid tubular “roof” overhead to keep the sun off... Fountaine Pajot and Berret Racoupeau have managed to incorporate all these cool features without making the boat look in any way top heavy. Indeed, the angular aesthetic approach of this boat is both businesslike and satisfying—this despite a “roof” that extends far enough aft to not only shade the entire cockpit but support a pair of large solar panels, well clear of the aforementioned lounging area.”
“The saloon and galley are large, practical, suffused with light and configured to provide a seamless transition between the indoor spaces and cockpit. In both the three- and four-cabin layouts, each cabin gets its own shower and head. The three-cabin version gives over the entire starboard hull to the owner’s quarters.
What really impressed me was the lighting and ventilation belowdecks. This is another area in which the Hélia 44 is truly pushing the envelope. The combination of hull windows, conventional opening portlights and overhead hatches provide a level of lighting and air circulation that are truly incredible—never mind the immense size of the berths and generous headroom.”
“…As is often the case when I’m aboard a well-found multihull, I couldn’t stop marveling at how easy it all was. No heaving, no heeling and no spray, even with the moderate chop: just point the bow, trim the sails and watch the wake stretch out arrow-straight astern.
Coming about was equally easy, and the helm was satisfyingly light and responsive, so that it was possible to play the shifts and get into a groove on the tighter reaching angles, much like a monohull…
… When it came time to reluctantly give up the helm, I spent a few moments afterward watching the wake unfurl behind us, thinking I’d love to cover some serious passage miles on this boat.”
“No surprises here. Like any good cat, playing the engines made it possible to pirouette in place, even in a stiff cross breeze.”
