After boarding you will be impressed by the security of the cockpit. A raised helm seat , access to winches and overhead bimini contribute to making this a fine cockpit.

The companionway hatch folds up and forward providing access to the aft cabin. This area includes the owners berth and aft head to starboard, and a large storage area and forward facing nav station to port. A large locker is aft of the companionway ladder.

The main salon is up three steps where you will be pleased by the number (12) and size of the custom fixed ports ( more like windows with louvered blinds) that create an open and spacious feeling. The port side settee is L shaped facing a custom double side drop leaf table. Starboard is a 6'6" settee along the front of which are two dismountable vertical safety bars for use when the conditions dictate. Behind / outboard of both settees are several storage cabinets as well as under the settees. Aft in the salon the alternate companionway ladder has been converted to a ship's library. Forward to port a  4.5 foot  high counter extends to midship, separating the salon from the galley below. Forward to starboard is the internal helm station with dismountable helm seat.

As you pass through this vessel you cannot miss the beautifully finished cabin sole as well as all other woodwork. You should also notice the custom over head insulation panels that help maintain the salon temperature.

As you step down into the galley you recognize that it has been designed for making more than baloney sandwiches! It extends across the width of the boat, with the starboard side dedicated to the refrigeration and freezer units, custom water dispenser and ample storage. To port, a compact but spacious food preparation area includes the propane stove w/oven & broiler, microwave, stainless steel sinks, custom dish rack, food prep counter and trash bin. Ventilation is provided by an overhead hatch and two opening ports. Storage; don't worry, there is plenty!

The forward head is to port with the standard stainless steel sink, handheld shower, marine head, storage and one overhead hatch and opening port.

The forward cabin has a spacious V berth with the center filler that can be lowered for a seat. Four opening ports provide great ventilation and light.The starboard side storage area has been customized to contain the anchor chain locker, a workbench and storage area.

Broker's Comments

This is one of those opportunities that only come along once in a while; to purchase a solid cruising Yacht which is ready to go sailing. This is such a special and unique vessel that she is featured in a five page article in the current spring issue of Cruising Outpost Magazine. If time is of the essence for you, we have the yacht for you.  With everything already completed, you will be able to plan your cruising budget knowing that you have everything you need aboard including a very extensive spare parts inventory. The owner of this yacht is confident that you will not find any issues with this yacht at survey.  

The following is a summary of this yacht provided by a very reputable local marine surveyor.  

"Memory Rose is a well outfitted example of the CSY 44' Pilothouse Ketch that has seen a multiyear re-design, re-fitting and rebuilding program. Major projects include; removal of the molded in hull rubrail and replacement with a teak one, removal of the teak cap rails, securing the hull to deck joint with fiberglass bondings and applying a professional Awlgrip paint finish to both hull and deck, custom construction and replacement of the rudder, removal, stripping and complete re-finishing of the masts and booms, modifying substantial modifications to the rig and sail plan, replacing the standing rigging and running rigging, re-engineering rigging supports and leads, adding electric self tailing sheet winches, replacing the sails, removal re-building of the engine and engine beds, re-engineering of plumbing systems and replacement of the seacocks, hoses, water heater and pumps, replacement of electronics, re-building of the refrigeration system box with exotic insulation and costly new holding plate refrigeration system and custom double windows with custom framing. Custom stainless steel components manufactured for Memory Rose include; an elaborate bow sprit /cutwater fitting / dolphin striker, custom “Deerfoot” style chain plates, boom gallows, guard rails, fair leads for rigging and anchor rodes, an amidships mounted heavy duty electric windless etc… The choice of equipment and level of workmanship is at least in keeping with but for the most part exceeds factory original. The multiple year, hands on approach to this long and complicated project has produced some very well thought out and executed changes."
