General Details

Excellent example of a classic, comfortable cruising boat. Looks like a 4 year old boat because almost everything is only 4 years old or newer. If there is a cleaner, nicer CSY on the market I can't find it. Currently in Fort Lauderdale at a private dock and easy to see this boat is a real find. Current owner has had to postpone the dream cruise but the boat is very ready. 


Step down a short ladder from the cockpit to the saloon. To starboard is a HUGE 3 compartment refrigerator/freezer. Immediately forward is a long settee which swings up and slides out to provide a double berth and a single overhead. Storage is also behind the settee. Forward of the settee is a hanging locker. Opposite the hanging locker is the forward shower. Aft of the pantry is a custom storage cabinet. A second settee lies aft of the cabinet to port. A drop leaf table mounted at the mast opens to accommodate diners at both settees. Aft to port is a U shaped galley. Forward of the saloon is a large “V” berth with en-suite head. The head has a private door into the shower.  The vanity has a custom tumbled marble tile counter-top. Entrance to the owner's cabin is down a short ladder from the cockpit. Immediately to starboard in the owner's cabin is a large nav station. An expansive owner's berth stretches completely across the aft end of the cabin. To port and forward of the berth is a full head with shower. The vanity has the same custom tumbled marble tile counter-top found in the forward head and galley. Saloon cushions - NEW 2009!
