WAVERUNNER 44A CUSTOMIZED BY BUILDER
(Flybridge removed for cruising European canals etc.)

Hi Bruce and Gwenda, Well, here is ANOTHER Happy Home Builder of your WR 44.  I bought my boat plans from you in 2001 and built our boat out of American White Oak, Marine ply and epoxy.  The hull is encased in 2 layers of 850 gram Quadraxial Epoxy glass.  I fitted 2 x 135HP Perkins 6 cyl natural aspirated diesels and she cruises beautifully at 8 knots at 1600 rpm. All the work was done by my wife and I except for the sanding and fairing.

 
The boat was built mainly for the rivers and canals of Europe.  We shipped her to Rotterdam from Durban (South Africa) in June 2010 and cruised to Amsterdam to see my family (I was born there).  We are returning in April to collect her and carry on cruising through to France via Paris down to the Soane.  Then we will fly home to SA for the winter.
 
We are delighted with the design which can cruise most of the canals of Europe as well as the Med.  One can even go down the Rhine, across to the Danube, come out at the Black Sea via Istanbul, the Greek Islands, back to the Rhone and France. This size boat would be ideal for this kind of trip.  We are enclosing some photos to show off our boat and your excellent design. Kind regards, Bob and Margie de Boer South Africa

This steel Waverunner 44 that was built in Oman as a Fisheries Patrol vessel, is one of many examples of this design. The hull is shown here to illustrate the planing flats of the chine that are necessary to help these larger steel boats up onto a plane.
