At last... a magnificent example of this well loved classic.
You will look long and hard to find one like this.
FROM THE OWNER
The CSY 44’ “Walkover” is well known for
its durability, comfort and classic appearance. Designed specifically
for use in the Caribbean (CSY stands for “Caribbean Sailing Yachts”),
they feature a solid, hand-laid fiberglass hull and deck with no core
to absorb water or to rot. These boats are cutter rigged for easy
sail handling and to provide a variety of sail combinations. All
systems are overbuilt, easy to access and have withstood the test of
time. Although they are heavy for their size, these boats are
surprisingly fast and agile and their strength and weight that gives
them their legendary comfortable ride with the ability to keep moving
when newer and lighter boats run for cover.
DESSPERADO is a fine example of her breed. Built in 1977
in Tampa, Florida, she is hull number 23, which tells us that the
building crews had enough experience to do a great job and still had
their enthusiasm. She has lived most of her life doing what she does
best: sailing among the islands of the Caribbean. (In fact, she is
currently located in the heart of the Windward Islands, so if your
dream is to have a boat in that area she is positioned to save you the
expense and bother of moving a boat to that location.) She has been
lovingly maintained by a knowledgeable (U. S. Coast Guard licensed
Captain) owner over the past ten years with many upgrades and
improvements, and she stands ready and able to provide her new owner
with years of safe and comfortable cruising.
