The CT 44 is known by several names- Tanton 44, CT 44 and Ta Chiao 44. Constructed in Taiwan at the Ta Chiao Shipbuilding Company, she is built on the same hull as the Tanton designed Offshore 43, a cat ketch design.  

Yves-Marie Tanton is a name that many people have never heard of, yet he truly was one of the pioneers in the yacht design world. He headed up the team with Bob Perry and Chuck Paine in Dick Carter’s studio in the early 70’s designing IOR race boats. In 1974 he opened his own studio and was very involved in the advancement of the unstayed carbon fiber mast. Still going strong in his offices in Newport, RI, Yves-Marie has over 650 designs to his name.  

Built from 1982 until 1989, the CT44 was purpose built to be an ocean voyager and can be seen in all corners of the world. The spoon shaped bow provides a fine entry, her rounded bilge then flattens amidships and finishes with a rounded canoe stern, giving both good upwind performance as well as riding comfortably in a following sea. Her fin keel and a skeg hung rudder placed well aft provide excellent balance. The hull is Airex cored above the waterline, keeping her light enough to perform well while providing a stronger hull, quieter ride and keeping the interior more comfortable in varying climates. The high bulwarks run completely around the boat, with side decks that are wide and unobstructed, making her extremely safe and secure to move about in all sorts of weather conditions.  The cockpit is huge and can comfortably seat eight or ten people for entertaining or just provide a great space for sleeping under the stars. Her two stateroom/two head interior provide lots of living space and has loads of storage everywhere you turn.    

While the owner has done many upgrades to the boat, by far the most important thing he did was repowering her. Many of these come into brokerage with thousands of hours on the engine, leaving it for the next person to deal with. “Kayode” was repowered in 2014 and no expense was spared. While the engine was out, the engine compartment was repainted, rewired and new soundproofing insulation was installed. The fuel lines from the tanks were replaced and a dual Racor filtration system was installed. Everything was new- engine, transmission, coupling dampener, shaft, cutlass bearing and 3-blade feathering prop. With around 160 hours on it and still shining like new now, you are set for a long, long time. This is a huge benefit to her next owner.

Our offering is uniquely named. “Kayode” is an African term for “He brings joy”, which seems only too appropriate!      

Whether you are looking for a great live-aboard, a well-founded ocean voyager or just a comfortable cruiser that will get you there safely, “Kayode” represents a great value- she’s a lot of boat for the money. Call and make an appointment to see her today!
