Solaris 44 sells again in Hong Kong
The third sale of a Solaris 44 in Hong Kong this year underlines the growing popularity of the Italian builder of high-performance, ‘easy-sailing’ monohulls.
Three Solaris 44 sailing yachts have already been sold in Hong Kong this year
Solaris Yachts has announced the recent sale of a Solaris 44 in Hong Kong, where it’s scheduled to arrive in February 2022 and become the brand’s fifth new yacht in the city. The newest Hong Kong order, which will be named BOB, will be equipped for ‘easy sailing’ and have a furling boom, electric winches, self-taking furling jib, furling Code Zero and furling Gennaker.
Together with Amphitrite and Black Pearl, BOB is the third Solaris 44 sold in Hong Kong this year. Amphitrite will arrive in late July and will be the first-ever Solaris 44 in Hong Kong, while Black Pearl is scheduled to arrive by the end of 2021.
The 13.5m Solaris 44 is designed and built for fast cruising with a reduced crew, with all lines being led to just two winches within easy reach of the helmsman. The mainsail traveller is totally recessed, while winches on the coaming deploy the asymmetrical spinnaker. The boat can also be used for relaxed cruising and competitive racing.

Below deck, the beam of 4.18m (13ft 9in) allows for two double guest cabins aft, while forward are a galley to port and day head to starboard, full-beam saloon and the owner’s cabin with ensuite bathroom in the bow.
