The saloon layout of Fountaine Pajot Helia 44 is exceptional in terms of the unencumbered space it offers, thanks to the recessed mast. Another interesting feature is the way the cockpit seamlessly blends into the saloon, offering a smooth transition between outdoor and indoor areas.

The saloon is accessed via a narrow sliding glass door and is illuminated by the sunlight that filters in through the panoramic, all-around window. The bench seat, surrounding a wooden coffee table, has storage lockers underneath and can easily accommodate up to 6 people. Part of the bench also serves a seat for the navigation station.

The navigation station faces forward and has an unobstructed view of the outside. It has a wide wooden chart table and storage under a flap. Complete with a high navigation instruments console, an electric panel, and an electric outlet, the chart desk is lit with a reading light.

The U-shaped galley, positioned between the cockpit and the saloon, has easy access to not only the inside but also outside to the cockpit, which makes serving food and drinks through a sliding bay fast and efficient. It features double stainless steel sinks, 3 burner stove, an oven. There is enough storage space available for cutlery and supplies in the form of large cupboards under the sink and to the side of the entry door. The galley is also well-lit and an opening hatch placed above the stovetop ensures ventilation.

The foredeck of Helia 44 is wide and spacious with two large lockers at the bottom of the mast, one for anchorage and halyard tail storage, and another for the generator. It also hosts a wide trampoline.

The aft cockpit of Helia 44 is entirely protected from the weather by a rigid bimini. It is large and spacious, with a bench seat which along with a sofa can comfortably accommodate up to 8 people around a table.
