Description

Sapphira is a 1977 Caribbean Sailing Yacht 44 Walkover that has cruised extensively in the Atlantic Ocean and along the eastern seaboard. CSY Yachts are constructed of solid fiberglass up to 1 and a half inches thick and other than stringers and cabinetry, there is no wood in the boat.Her owner has modified the boat for single hand sailing and the canvas and isinglass surrounding the cockpit provide a welcome retreat from cold and rough conditions. CSY sailing yachts were used extensively in the charter fleet business so the cockpit is very spacious and the visibility from the helm is good. There is plenty of room below to gather together and the separate aft master cabin with unsuited head is comfortable and very private. If you dream of setting off into the sunset with friends or perhaps living aboard with the option to weigh anchor and disappear at will then come see Saphirra.
