Drawing inspiration from traditional styles and liveaboard life, rather than cutting-edge performance, the new Gozzard 44 Ketch has the same hull as the MK2 Cutter, but saves five and a half feet of mast height to slip under a few more bridges with an easily managed ketch rig. T.H. Gozzard designed his fleet to accommodate older couples looking to live aboard as they finally have a chance to enjoy the hard-earned fruits of their labors. Knowing that most time will be spent at the water’s edge seeking out civilized adventures, the fleet is designed to be comfortable in port and exploring the coastline while providing for seamanly passages between destinations.

The interior layout is designed with the idea that this is a couple’s home. Permanent accommodations for two allows for an open interior with lots of living space, including the large cockpit that is designed to function as the main saloon in good weather
