Huckins Yacht launched the first Atlantic 44 in 1997. To date, 15 hulls have been delivered, with some models set up as flybridge boats and others as express cruisers. A new 44 will cost about $1.4 million and take 10 months to build.

Notable features: The 44 has Huckins' Quadraconic planing hull form. The builder reports a constant running angle of 3.5 degrees sans trim tabs. Top speed is 30 knots, and power options include a variety of twin diesels up to 370 hp.  ­

Belowdecks: Accommodations plans include one or two staterooms.

Availability: At press time, two Huckins Atlantic 44s were on the market — a 2001 express cruiser version for $225,000 and a 2009 flybridge model for $495,000.

From Yachting, August 2009:

“Freedom’s hull and superstructure were built one-off over a male jig. Closed-cell foam coring was secured to a computer-cut jig, and the outer fiberglass was laminated and faired. The jig was then removed, and the inner skin was laminated.”
