Adventure, of course, can simply mean taking the boat to a great spot. Once there, the Q 44 offers the ability to socialize outdoors better than most cruisers its size. The single-level walk-around decks, huge aft cockpit and hydraulic swim platform form the environment. This is populated with a range of features, such as the jump seat and sun pad on the bow, and the so-called "kitchen island" in the cockpit. This last feature is some 6 feet long, topped with a faux stone counter and cutting board, and fitted with a sink, hot and cold running water, a refrigerator/freezer and a grill. Also, a fore- and aft-facing lounge converts to a sun pad while two cockpit L lounges are served by teak tables and convert to sleepers. There is an optional Plan B layout intended to suit anglers that opens the cockpit and includes a livewell.
