A powerful and robustly constructed steel cruising yacht, the Hedoniste 44 is a well proven design. A round bilged, heavy displacement hull with keel hung rudder, this is an ideal liveaboard world girdler, a proper little ship. In her current ownership she has undergone a thorough refit and refurbishment at considerable expense, but there is still more to do. The coachroof needs to be repaired and some corroded plates replaced. The price has been substantially reduced to reflect this.
