Below decks in the main cabin and master cabin cabinetry has been altered with teak to add more storage space and the main cabin pipe berth area across from the dinette now has additional storage plus two nice chairs for seating with storage below. There is a large refer/freezer, a Force 10 three burner propane stove with oven, a double sink and microwave in the galley. There are two decent sized heads, one in the master and one forward with a large separate shower enclosure. Both are equipped with Jabsco manual toilets. There are two reverse cycle A/C units, a 16k BTU Cruiseair for the main cabin and a 6k BTU Mermaid for the master. Over all she is a great cruising boat and we have very much enjoyed our time with her. No way one could buy an equivalent new boat unless they have very deep pockets.
There are many great articles on the CSY boats online but two very good ones are found in Cruising World Magazine, July 30, 2002 and Jordan Yachts, CSY 44 Review, Feb 12, 2010.
