For the 44, the master stateroom, which is nearly full beam width, is forward and only a few steps down from the salon deck level. Its ensuite head is several steps down to port, while a cozy seating area occupies the same position to starboard. Two guest staterooms are located in the hulls, also with ensuite heads, with stairways descending near the aft salon bulkhead. The galley is to port aft, where it can serve the aft table as easily as the salon table, and is very well equipped, including Corian countertops for long service. Molded stairs lead up from the aft deck to either side deck, while the major stairway leads to the large flybridge. An L-shaped bench seat for four sits just behind the helm console, so a large group can enjoy the ride facing forward with the helmsman. Just aft, there is a console for an optional outdoor kitchen and a large U-shaped seating area and a table with folding leaves for easy access. And when the time comes to go forward, there's no need to retrace your steps down to the aft deck. Aquila has included a centerline stairway with excellent handrails just ahead of the helm.
