I think the most famous remark was that you could "pick em up" by the chainplates.
Worked on a number of them. Built like a brick casa mierda

Looks like she has all the bells and goodies. Sails new in 2004. Of course, you will need to survey her. Good luck and fair winds with her.

You see a lot of them out cruising, so they must be reasonable boats. Still the adv has not mention of what engine is in it and the hours? Prop? It only has 2 out of 5 winches that are self tailing so you would need 3 new winches. Rigging age? Hull osmotic blisters? Barrier coat? Holding tanks? Basically there are as many questions unanswered as electronics listed. It is a cutter rig which is very good. Inspect the boat very carefully as you would any old boat.
-- here is another version of the same boat: 1977 CSY 44 - for sale by owner

offer 65k and see where it leads.
Asking price is high IMO.

- - So it has been a month - what is happening? Did you look at the CSY44 I put in post #6? It has a new(?) Yanmar engine - possibly a major improvement item over the one you were looking at.

That's crazy talk! There are numerous applications, such as spinnaker primaries, where standard winches are better suited to the task.

Congrats on the new boat, by the way. She looks formidable.

Ya, I always thought a "self-tailing" winch was cranking with one hand and tailing with the other.......

I was thinking the same thing...

Congrats on the new boat. Those are well built cruisers.

First thing I would have wanted to see was that 2007 survey. And I would be interested as to why the GPS and other garbage/eye candy was mentioned multiple times, yet nary a peep about the engine or when the boat was last hauled and checked for blisters and the bottom painted and the cutlass bearing replaced....which leads one to believe it's been a while. I honestly think that 'new AM/FM w/speakers' sells more boats these days than the actual condition of her hull.
