General Details

The CSY 44 is regarded as a very strong and well contstructed offshore cruising yacht, and "MYSTERY" is one of the rare and highly sought after WALK-THRU models.

"MYSTERY" is in very nice condition and ready for new owners and new horizons. A recent $10,000 price reduction make her an even more attractive offering.

This cabin has generous storage lockers to starboard as you enter the cabin, a large queen athwartship berth with further storage each side and then forward in this cabin is the head/vanity/shower compartment.

Hull & Deck
The CSY 44 is built with solid hand laid GRP construction with molded keel, and internally ballasted with lead ballast. There is a cut away after the keel and the rudder is hung on a molded skeg with the propeller in an aperture, affording good protection for both rudder and prop. The deck is also solid laminate (no core material) GRP construction. The hull-to-deck marriage is with an internal flange bond, then sealed and thru-bolted. The teak cap rail was removed forward of the gangways, glassed over with (5) laminates of material, faired and then gelocated, minimizing exterior teak maintenance. The custom hardtop/dodger was built and installed in Venezuela, and at the same time the hull was faired and new gelcoat applied, wet sanded, buffed and polished.
