We live on a CSY 33
right now. The boat is a tank. We have the deep draft
version and good for you/bad for me- I've seen prices as low as 25k for boats that needed some work. The nice things about these boats is the hull
is near indesctructible! No cored decks, solid FRP.
CSYman owns a very nice CSY
33- you could query him about more info.
We were looking for a small catamaran
due to our new bambino- but after looking at a few in the same price
range we couldn't believe how flimsy and small the comparable 30-33' cats were. (no offense to any owners out there).
New standing rigging
, check the rudder
, tune up the engine
, check the chainplates, get rid of the head
and install a composting head
and you got a great blue water
tankage and good fuel
tankage- much more than you would find in comparable boats.
They are not the fastest, but very solid and comfortable boats.
We still would like a cat but for a growing family
the CSY 37
looks very attractive.
