Cambria Yachts are some of the worlds most sought after high-quality, blue-water yachts designed and built by David Walters. Originally called the Cambria 44 the yacht is actually 46' LOA and was dubbed the '44' at the time of construction as it was commonly held at the time that couples only wanted a yacht that was less than 45' long. David Walters personally oversaw the construction and delivery of every Cambria built. The yacht was in a special league, with famous actor Christopher Reeves having commissioned a Cambria 44 for himself too.

As one of the traditional New England yacht builders David Walters set the pace for quality, modern yacht design at a time when builders like Hinckley, Little Harbor, and Morris were still utilizing traditional methods.

The seller has kept his Cambria in bristol condition and it shows throughout. If you are looking for one of the finest yachts with the timeless lines of a Cambria then you need not look further than 'Two Shoes'.

The Cambria 44/46 was featured in Ferenc Mate's, The World's Best Sailboats. Mate concludes that this is "a yacht of excellent design and engineering, not inexpensive but then the Cambria quality is among the world's best". The Cambria 44/46 offers all the important elements: strength, exquisite custom interior finish, spacious 2 cabin, 2 head interior arrangement, comfortable deep aft offshore cockpit, excellent performance, classic styling and a shallow draft with centerboard.

Interior Features

Two Shoes sleeps seven with maximum privacy for the owner within an aft cockpit design. The aft owner's cabin has a double to starboard and navigation center/work desk to port providing direct communication to the cockpit. The owner's aft head features a separate stall shower. A passageway galley is accessed from the aft companionway or a second midship companionway ladder. The engine is located under this companionway ladder. Forward of the galley is the comfortable salon, guest head and V-berth guest cabin. There are two companionway entrances, one amidships providing entry into the salon and a second companionway directly from the cockpit into the owner’s cabin.

All the woodwork is handmade, light varnished teak. The cabin sole, which is totally removable, is solid varnished teak with light inlay. The interior hull sides are sheathed with teak battens (ceilings) which are set off the hull to provide ventilation. Lockers are wood lined with main hanging lockers lined with cedar. The overheads and under decks are white laminate.



The midship main salon offers an L-shaped settee (converts to a double) to port and a settee on the starboard side. Outboard of the starboard settee are built in lockers and shelves with additional storage behind both settee backrests.

  • Custom double leaf teak dining table. There are handrails throughout and double laminated arches



The passageway galley is located to port adjacent to the forward companionway that also has a dodger that permits leaving the hatch open in heavy weather and rainy days.

Master Stateroom

The owner's cabin is aft and encompasses the full-width of the yacht. There is a private entrance from the cockpit and four stainless steel opening ports. To starboard is a generous double berth with drawers and hanging locker and to port is a full sit down navigation center with more drawers and a hanging locker. A private owner's head has a walk-in, stall shower with teak grating. There is an electric head with Type III marine Lectrasan treatment equipment.


Guest Stateroom

The forward cabin has V-berth arrangement with a seat located between (the seat can be raised to form a double berth). Two bureaus are located port and starboard with hanging lockers outboard and an additional tall hanging locker is also provided.
The guest head with shower has two entry doors that permit access from either the main cabin or directly from the forward cabin. Locker with shelves and a hamper are built-in outboard of the vanity and a mirror is located above the stainless steel sink. There is an electric head with Type III marine Lectrasan treatment equipment.



The Cambria 44 hull is molded of hand-laid fiberglass with a 3/4" Airex core that provides thermal and sound insulation and meets both Lloyds and American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) requirements. A keel grid is bonded to the hull and integrated with the mast step and engine mounts to form a single unit. Below water thru-hull fittings are marine bronze full-way seacocks bedded on solid glass (core material is removed and replaced with solid glass). The 11,500 lb cast lead ballast keel provides protection in the event of grounding and is secured to the hull with 1" stainless steel bolts and 5200 (400 PSI) bedding compound. Additional fiberglass reinforcement is incorporated in stress areas such as stern, keel, transom and skeg and in way of chainplate knees.

The deck is a fiberglass sandwich with Divinycell PVC core to provide maximum strength. The deck is bonded to the internal flange on the hull with 5200 (strongest bedding material for this purpose) and thru bolted on 8" centers.



The versatile deck arrangement offers a proper deep T-shaped offshore cockpit with high backrests and ability to access the helm seat without stepping onto the cockpit seats. There are wide winch bases, recessed cleats and self-tailing winches. There is an aft companionway fully protected by a dodger. A second, small cockpit is amidships and second companionway. The second companionway provides privacy to the full-width aft owner's suite and direct access to the salon, galley and guest stateroom.
