Kraken 44


By popular demand

In response to strong demand from the worlds sailing community for a smaller true blue water yacht that incorporates the key Kraken design principals, I set the task to Kevin Dibley, Kraken’s award-winning naval architect, and he has now designed the latest addition to our fleet: the Kraken 44.

She will also benefit from the advances we have made in hybrid drive development in partnership with Combi electric drive motors.

A fundamental issue, that we have now solved with the inclusion of this hybrid drive system (which will be standard on the Kraken 44) is how to provide sufficient power for the comforts and resources we know are vital for comfortable long-term life on board. Air-conditioning, high volume water maker, fridge and freezer and electric cooking, to name but a few, will also be standard on the K44. In line with our philosophy, all of what you need is standard, and most of what you will want, is standard too. 

Such has been the improvement of hybrid drive technology that now the main engine, (likely to be a Yanmar 4JH57), when combined with the Combi 15kW electric drive motor will provide all on-board power, maintaining our belief that potentially dangerous gas cooking systems must always be avoided.

We are very pleased with the sleek and purposeful look of the latest addition to our fleet, which has been designed to be the perfect world cruising boat for two people and she will  accommodate two children, or two adult guests as well.

Key Features

All of our yachts include some of the best-designed features available on a new sailing yacht today and the Kraken 44 is no different.

The Zero Keel™
The Alpha Rudder™
Build Structure

The Zero Keel™

Zero bolts, zero risk. Each Kraken yacht includes our fully integral ZERO™ Keel to protect against floating debris and grounding.

The Alpha Rudder™

Each yacht includes the ALPHA™ Rudder System, incorporating a full-length skeg-hung rudder and in-water removable rudder bearings.

Build Structure

All Kraken yachts are built with a substantial interior structure to ensure keel delamination and failure cannot occur.


“The Kraken 44 is a true blue water cruising yacht with the DNA of her bigger sisters, the Kraken 50, 58 and 66.

Our brief was to create a 44-footer with Comfort, Seakindliness, Safety and Performance wrapped up in all the features that make her a Kraken including the Zero Keel and Alpha Rudder. No compromises were to be made on any of these key point. The Kraken 44 combines ease of handling, safety, high performance and luxury with a style and structural integrity that will set new standards for years to come.

We are proud to have worked with Kraken Yachts on their 50+ fleet and we are excited about this new venture into the under 50-foot market.”

Plans & Data

Project 44 is under development right now but it will be two & half to three years before we can deliver the first Kraken 44.

We will be releasing more information and details over the next few months, please bare in mind, any information shown here is liable to change.

We know cost is a significant factor for many aspiring world cruisers, so to help maximise our build efficiency we will focus on one four-berth layout . Our design team is working on the layout now and we will send out an update on that as soon as possible.

Pricing for the standard Kraken 44 will be circa €850,000. This has increased a little from our original price forecast due to our inclusion now of Hybrid Drive and full Lithium batteries as standard. Please note; this is a very full Kraken ‘nothing further needed’ standard specification, and you can expect to sail her off the delivery dock to anywhere in the world, without spending anything further on the specifications.

It should be noted that what is already included in the Kraken 44 as standard, would normally add €200,000 – €250,000 in upgrades from other yacht builders.

We are waiting now for some final quotations from equipment suppliers, but, since we have now finalised the hull, deck, rig and sail plan we expect to be able to give a definitive sales price shortly, notwithstanding that, it will fall circa €850,000.
