Alexander Marine Australia are pleased to present the Griffin 44 'Heidi Jane' to the market.
If you are in the market for a timeless head turning vessel then look no further. She is from the drawing board of Murray Burns and Dovell who also designed the popular Palm Beach Motor Yachts range.
'Heidi-Jane' is a beautifully constructed fibreglass masterpiece with magnificent hand crafted timber finishes and features. Modern composites make her super light weight and bring her into the twenty first century, but her looks are very much traditional. Combine these attributes with a semi displacement hull shape, knife like entry and you have a hull that slices through the ocean effortlessly and economically with the power of just a single 420HP Yanmar diesel engine. She is equipped with a Side-Power bow thruster for manoeuvrability.
Minimalist is the best way to describe her look, which in many ways is a bonus as maintenance is reduced. Two pack exterior paint plus covers for all of the exposed varnished teak ensures longevity. Large laminated glass windows provide excellent vision from the interior so you don't feel at all claustrophobic. The rear deck and saloon are on one level from the helm to the transom - just one continuous walk through.
Her low profile adds to stability, but more importantly, enables her to get under the low bridges therefore opening up another world of berthing options and boating destinations.
Where many boat designers would jam three cabins into a hull of this length, her designers Murray Burns and Dovell decided on two substantial cabins and one large shared bathroom.
For those with an eye for detail you will find an immaculate bilge with top quality engineering, plumbing, engine mounts, sea strainers and skin fittings with no expense spared in these important areas of the build.
Inspection by appointment. With respect to social distancing, we offer the option of a personalised virtual tour of the boat using the WhatsApp or Facetime platforms. Lying Fremantle, Western Australia.
