CSK 43

Hey guys,

We're in the market for a catamaran and after looking at a Dazcat (nice, but too racey) and a Prout Escale (excellent, but will need some work), a guy at the boat yard recommended we try and find a CSK catamaran.

I've seen a few come up on Yachtworld and Imi Loa was on ebay a while back (here's the link) but does anyone have any experience with them?

I know Imi was raced hard then cruised down through Mexico, so they're a tough design, but what else is there to know about them? I've emailed Choy Design as well to get their thoughts......

Our plans are initially to hang about the Caribbean for a while, then maybe do the milk run back to Aus. I'm not too worried about carrying huge loads (other than supplies, fuel and a dinghy, what else do you need?) but want a cruiser we can take long distance, feel comfortable in blue water, and mooch around in quite happily at anchor.

Off to the Caribbean after 5 years of building!!
