    This Shoal draft CSY 44 was built to withstand the rigors of the charter industry in the late 70s. As such, "Darby Ann" is heavily built to Lloyds of London requirements, with a solid fiberglass hull, and a solid fiberglass deck. No wood coring is used in construction, which is often the downfall of older boats. The 44 is offshore capable, a near perfect island cruiser and a terrific live aboard.

    The CSY 44 Walkover was well designed. Features like a built-in full-size trash receptacle in the galley, large refrigeration boxes (3 boxes totaling 21 cubic feet (0.59 m3) on the CSY 44 WO), and a larger-than-king-size bed in the aft master cabin (CSY 44) makes the boat comfortable in port, as well as a good sea boat.

    CSY did not use wood lamination in its construction, a technique that is the curse of many boats of this vintage. The CSY hull is up to 1.5" of solid fiberglass reinforced plastic resin with 14 dual layers (one sheet of fiberglass mat and one sheet of fiberglass weave = one layer). The avoidance of wood cores extends to the deck, which is also solid fiberglass. The only wood used in the construction of these boats are heavy laminated structural stringers, bulkheads and interior furniture. The CSY 44 was designed to cruise the Caribbean in comfort, and built to withstand the charter trade needs. "Darby Ann" is ready to go sailing again. Current owner is the third, change of circumstances forces sale.


    Vessel Walkthrough

    The CSY 44 walk-over model offers very comfortable accommodations for living and cruising in comfort. Starting forward is the guest cabin with large V-berth configuration, with shelves, drawers and hanging lockers to port and starboard. There is door into the forward head compartment from this cabin as well as the salon. Aft of the head compartment is the separate shower area, accessed from the salon and/or forward head compartment. Opposite is a hanging locker and drawer storage, followed by a shelf, single seat dinette and then further storage. Opposite is an L-shaped settee, and in the middle of the salon is the dinette table with double folding leaves and storage in the top and aft end. Outboard of the settees to port and starboard are lockers. Aft and to port as the chart table and breaker panels, followed by a door into the walk-in engine/machinery room. Opposite to the starboard side is the very workable linear galley. The aft cabin has generous storage lockers to starboard as you enter the cabin, a large queen athwartships berth with further storage each side and then forward in this cabin is the head/vanity/shower compartment. A very nice layout. The storage throughout "Darby Ann" is everywhere and very abundant, the daylight and ventilation quite generous with 19 opening ports in the entire vessel, in addition to opening hatches on the cabin roof.
