Highly regarded CSY 44 Center Cockpit Walkover layout with ICW-friendly cutter rig.  This boat is well updated, in excellent running condition, and ready to go.  Features updated wiring,  updated plumbing, new tanks, custom stainless arch & davits over transom, custom swim platform, new canvas and much more.  Fairhaven is set up for living aboard with Espar heat, AC, excellent refrigeration, and a large stall shower.   She is ready to go... Load your gear and head South.

The CSY 44 was built to withstand the rigors of the charter industry in the late 70s.  As such it 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 liveaboard.  The owners of Fairhaven have moved to Colorado and have priced this boat to sell.
