The CSYs were built like a brick out house. Solid glass, no core in the deck or hull to rot or delaminate. Since there is no core the decks are not as rigid as some but don't let that fool you.

As Captforce points out, they are not speedy but roomy and very comfortable liveaboard/cruisers.

I own a 44 Walk Over, dont sail very well in light air , but with a good set of light air sails you can improve the perfomance, the boat is made very heavy, all the laminated in the hull and deck is made to last forever, no core !! There is 2 keels version, one shallow draft and the other deep draft, like 6.6 ft... i recomend you the deep draft version if you finally choose this boat, in heavy airs is where finally this boat is happy,20 to 25 knts with full main is not a problem, she take the waves very well, no poundings!! Anyway, for me is a great boat, and when the weather turn bad is when i feel more comfortable.
Cheers.

Is a goood looking tough heavy cruising boat----i saw some in caribean and florida over the past year and some in kali-----they are handsome and stout and i would go for one if i didnt have my formosa 41..........i was looking seriously at the csy 44 when i was looking for a bigger boat ---is an excellent choice....

In general, solid boats. However, like any boat of that age, choose wisely...
