Can anyone who owns a Brewer 44 get me the measurements of the width of the companionway/cockpit door and down the steps??

Also, how has anyone gotten a washer below decks? One of my wife's "must haves" is a washer, and I have seen several in these boats. Just not sure how they have gotten some of the larger ones below decks.

Thanks.

Brad

Hello Brad,
We are currently aboard our Brewer 44 Andiamo anchored in Newport Harbor, RI.
The top of the companionway is 23” wide, it narrows to 22.5 19” down and then cuts in to 16” for another 14” to the top of the step.
The opening is 22” deep at the top of the companionway.
Hope this helps.

I wish I was closer than 6.5 hours away from Invictus, and the virus sure isn't helping things.

So, it is 16" wide at the narrowest on the way down the ladder??

I have no idea how anyone got a washer 22"-23" wide into these boats.

Thanks.

You may have better luck going through the engine room. We had to do that on our Whitby 42 to get a table below.

As much as I would like to get a larger washer/dryer below decks.....doing 40 plus hours of work to get it through the cockpit into the engine room, probably not going to happen in my lifetime.

Any pictures of what that involved? I realize the cockpit floor is removable, but what about all the stuff going up into the pedestal?

Thanks,

Bob

I had to take the floor out to remove the engine. It is not an easy job given the electrics and hydraulic lines.

My original comment related to going through the port side locker. I am not familiar with the Brewer port locker layout but if it is like the Whitby then you can remove the locker floor to provide access into the engine room. Then again I do not have a genset beside the engine under the locker floor.

I am pretty sure that the locker on the port side of both is the same. Even removing the lid, I would never be able to fit something as large as a 24" deep washing machine. The floor of my locker also comes out, but I have a genset below mine, and the compressors for my Seafrost refrigeration are on the shelf on the outboard of that.

I do appreciate the thoughts, but unfortunately there isnt much of a chance of getting anything down through the locker, or the time consuming process of removing the cockpit sole.

I just can't see getting a Splendide machine below decks short of a major operation. I will probably end up with a Giantex washer/centrifugal dryer. Not perfect, but good enough for long term cruising.
