For the price of the HH44,
And that price would be?: ________________________________

GB doesn't make anything smaller than a 68 these days, so really they are in competition with Outremer, Marsaudon, Lagoon, Catana and Kinetic.
That was a heated point, battled above in this thread. 

But your point is (mostly) correct: Outremer, Marsaudon, Lagoon, Catana (maybe - but doubtful these days) and Kinetic.

Per the last paragraph in this article, the HH44 starts at $1.2M: https://www.catsailingnews.com/2021/08/hudson-yacht-unveils-new-cat-the-hh44.html

I have ~$1.6M for the base price of a KC54.

I think you could be into a Marsaudon ORC50 for under $1M, but that is a simpler boat with less creature comforts.

I would say it depends on your exact comparison between brands, to cross Outremer completely off the list would be a bit unfair, as the 45 and 4X are pretty direct competitors to the HH44. I certainly agree that a Lagoon would be a step down, and probably Catana as well, at least in terms of build quality.

I quite like the cabin size & styling on the HH 44. Undecided on the transoms - seems like a bit of extra complexity/hassle to have swim steps. Would like to see where the transoms float, also.

Ah, I thought perhaps you had inside information.  Second hand verbiage is also bring the ORC57 in at $1.3M usd.  Marsaudon Composites ORC57 - Catamaran Review -Katamarans  Might be other articles proclaiming different numbers...

Personal perception and judgement towards what constitutes competition to this offering is all good with me.  We just have different answers.
