Descriptions

Introduction
The Kelly Peterson 44 was the brainchild of yacht broker Jack Kelly who partnered with yacht designer Doug Peterson.
 
They conceived a performance cruising yacht that could accommodate 6+ crew while reeling off the miles under sail. Peterson's slippery hull, generous sail plan and cutter rig allow for numerous sail combinations and lively performance.
 
Raven's owners of 37 years have cared for her with exceptional maintenance, thoughtful equipment updates including new engine in 2018, new standing rigging in 2009 and full replacement of nearly every system on the boat.  She is an up to date version of this classic design.
