We have designed the Pogo 44 with the Pogo Structure yard, as a successor to the hugely successful Pogo 12.50. The design brief was a modern and elegant boat, with more comfortable interiors but the same performance and usability as the previous boat.
Its modern hull is wide and powerful, with lots of front volume. It has been designed with extensive use of CFD. The Pogo 44 remains lighter than most production boats in its category.
It keeps the same rig principle as the other cruising Pogos, without backstay or runners, allowing for a large square-top mainsail. The keel system is also the same, for access to shallow moorings.
The coachroof remains in the same family as the Pogo 36, but with straighter lines. The large panoramic side windows extend to the front, giving a nice view forward.
The step in the transom provides easy access into the cockpit.
The bowsprit, integrated in the general lines of the boat, also acts as a davit.
A new step have been made regarding styling and inside finish compared to the previous generations. Designed in-house by Pierre Forgia, the interiors are made of light-colored materials and the right proportion of wood touches. This makes for a clear and contemporary atmosphere.
The saloon features L-shaped seating on port, and a large lengthwise galley on starboard. The wooden table is supported by the keel box, and can be lowered to the level of the seating for additionnal berthing.
A large bathroom is located between the saloon and the front master cabin (double front cabin available as an option), and two guest cabins aft of the saloon.
