Retired Design *
Designed by: William Tripp

The Mercer 44 is a traditional cruising boat often referred to as Bill Tripp's best design. She was designed with sailing performance in mind with a full keel and centerboard for additional stability while sailing and ease of anchoring in any harbor while cruising. Her flush deck allows for ease of movement when going forward. The interior sleeps seven which is wonderful for a boat with a 30' waterline. Standard equipment includes sloop rig, diesel inboard, head, galley, life lines, winches, and varnished mahogany interior. Options include Yawl rig, roller furling headsail, spinnaker gear, navigation station and more.

* RETIRED DESIGN NOTE Retired Cape Cod boats were built at one time, but due to a lack of owner support have been removed from regular production. The fiberglass molds to build these boats remain at Cape Cod Shipbuilding Co. but custom replacement parts may not be readily available. A retired boat could be built, but a fleet order would need to be placed to bring the molds into the shop.
