CSY 44

CSY 44, Skala, this Caribbean Sailing Yacht is a stunning version of the Walkthrough Cruiser which is known as a solid, reliable, blue water cruising yacht built in 1982, and is exclusively for sale by DBY Boat Sales.

A comfortable boat for all, especially for tall seafarers due to the 7’2 inch headroom in the saloon and 6’4 inches everywhere else.

Very rare in this part of the World, and designed to be the ultimate cruiser, the CSY 44 boasts an exceptional reputation as a truly seaworthy, comfortable, and capable Bluewater cruiser. They even feature in Cruising World magazine‘s list of the 40 Best Sailboats of All Time.

Built in the USA to the highest standards the hand laid hull is over 1 and half inches thick, and the solid fibreglass decks are exceptionally strong, making the vessel truly robust. This combined with a spacious and comfortable interior, impressive sailing performance, and durability, has made them as highly sought after now as when they were first built! And this vessel “Skala” is an excellent example of the design, having been very well maintained by her fastidious liveaboard owners.

An Australian Registered vessel, she features many significant upgrades including a recent Yanmar 110HP engine, gearbox, propeller shaft and Gori 3 blade folding propeller. 2 new stainless steel fuel tanks (370L main and 130L day tank) and additional twin Racor primary filters set up to polish all fuel on it’s way from the main tank into the day tank before it goes to secondary filters on both the main engine and the generator. All new batteries: engine/generator start battery; 3 x 24v 200 AH Lithium House batteries (Total 15.3 KWH); and 2 sealed AGM batteries for the bow thruster.

She has also undergone a complete rewiring of all 12 volt and 240 volt systems including main switch boards. A large Vetus Bowthruster (BOWPRO130) with 130 kgf thrust has been installed along with a 5000 W pure sinewave Victron Inverter/charger and 1300 W of solar panels spread over 3 arrays.

A 160 Litre per hour water maker from Water Makers Australia has also been added and is in regular use and perfect order. All plumbing throughout has also been replaced with new hot/cold pressure pipes, a new 25L stainless steel hot water unit, an electric fresh water flush toilet, a 4Kg front loading washing machine and new Shurflo 5 high flow (19LPM) water pump and 5 micron filter.

Starting forward there is a large v berth with opening hatch above, then an ensuite head. Aft of that is a huge standalone shower room, and the washing machine in a locker is opposite.

The saloon is amidships and features a large timber dinette with seating for 8 in comfort on the neatly upholstered settees. The generous galley is to starboard and has all the amenities of a small apartment. There are no LP gas appliances below decks: the galley boasts a gimballed 2 burner Induction stovetop with a Breville air fryer/oven below. There is a double bowl sink with H/C pressurised water and additional filtered drinking water tap, and a large front opening Adler Barbour fridge and freezer. On deck there are two 4.5kg LP gas bottles for the BBQ.

Past the galley is the master cabin. Here the timber work is exceptional and the cabin has a warm and traditional feel. It is beautifully appointed with a large double berth, extensive storage and hanging space, and full ensuite with toilet, shower, and vanity.

On the port side opposite the galley is the nav station. This is sure to please the most discerning yachtsman. Featuring a full chart table, extensive electronics, and full control of the ships electrical and charging systems. There is even a small compressor for the boat’s mini dive tank.

Rarely do we find a walk in engine compartment on a cruising yacht, and entered through a door aft of the chart table this has to be one of the best we have seen! With full headroom, it allows easy access to the engine, Northern Lights generator, fuel systems, and there is even a work bench!

Just count the number of opening hatches and cabin side ports on the boat. Don’t forget the three in the transom above the master bunk. So much fresh air for the tropics, and electric fans as backups throughout, and there is even a 2Kw Airtronic diesel heating system plumbed throughout the boat for the colder months!

Stepping up into the cockpit, the fibreglass hard top and a full set of surrounding clears give complete protection in any weather, and it also makes for an excellent entertaining or alfresco dinning space. Adorned with cushions, it's an ideal spot to relax and enjoy the view. The vessel is set up to be easily managed short handed, and features a new Raymarine Autopilot and control panel, self tailing primary winches, and excellent electronics. Sail handling is a breeze with the main in the boom bag with lazy jacks, and both the new genoa and staysail are on furlers.

Her standing rigging is due for replacement, but there is literally not another cent to be spent on the boat.

She is equipped with strong dinghy davits, and a quality Highfield inflatable tender with new 6HP four stroke Mercury outboard. There is easy access around the vessel, with the high bulwarks and guardrails offering excellent security.

Her encapsulated lead keel draws just under 2m, and she has a massive 85lb Mantus M2 anchor with 100 metres of 10mm chain to secure her in any weather and it is easily retrieved by the Lofrans winch.

With vast amounts of storage space throughout the boat she is the perfect liveaboard, long range cruising yacht. She is near our office on Pittwater and well worth your immediate inspection.
