J/44s slide through waves with little pitch and roll, responding effortlessly to your touch on the wheel. These superb sailing and handling qualities are different from traditional cruising and IOR / IMS "rule" boats in two very important ways:
J/44s have a balanced hull design with a long waterline relative to beam (L/B) providing directional stability in large waves - not compromised by need for a better rating or the added wetted surface of long keels and skegs, and J/44s have a low center of gravity and low moments of inertia - achieved with a deep lead keel, hand-laid Baltek-cored hull & deck construction and a beautifully engineered Hall rig. J/44s sail well in the extremes: downwind in light air and upwind in a blow. This means more sailing, less motoring and safe passages.
Orca is a high performance cruiser of this famous J/44 design. She has the two aft cabin layout with large head and a walk in-shower for maximum cruising comfort.
