Seller recently moved this boat from Palmetto to Port Charlotte and it is reported the engine runs good. Be boat is currently on the hard in storage and will be sold that way. There is a lot of work that needs to be  done and offers are strongly encouraged.

These boats are made for true blue water sailing and are made of solid fiberglass, there is no wood coring. The rigging us undone and the mast is down and ready for ground transport if that is what you are looking for.

Interior cushions are covered in plastic and in excellent shape. Standing Rigging is in excellent shape. Running Rigging is weathered. Sails are in excellent shape minus a quarter sized hole in the main that can be patched. The sails are Dacron.

As the seller has had the boat for 20 years there are spare parts for about everything. It is reported t be a truck load full.

The seller is motivated to sell as his sailing days are behind him. I will present ALL reasonable offers.

Peter A. Schmitt designed this seaworthy sailboat, and CSY built nearly 90 of them from the late 1970s to the early 1980s, primarily for the charter market. Its distinctive design, shaped a bit like a scimitar, prompted the name given to our boat by its original owner, who had it custom outfitted for personal use. CSY offered a couple of layouts for the 37; this boaqt has one stateroom but can easily sleep 5, with an en-suite head forward of the mast. The raised, flush deck makes the CSY 37 seem larger than some longer boats of more conventional design. Another attractive feature is the solid-fiberglass deck, which will never suffer from water getting into the core. Nor has blistering been a problem on CSY hulls.

Although the cockpit is large, it has adequate bracing positions for when the boat is heeled. Adding to the feeling of security is the high coaming, which keeps some of the spray out. The raised, U-shaped helmsman's seat feels very safe and provides a good view all around.

The three-step companionway is a big surprise; such an easy entry to a sailboat cabin is rare. On our boat, the galley is immediately to starboard, and the aft cabin is to port, with its head forward of it. Both the galley and the cabin are just steps away from the companionway and great places to be when under way and when the boat's heeled. Going forward, to starboard, is a 21-cubic-foot engine-driven refrigerator that holds a tremendous amount.

In the saloon, a settee that converts to upper and lower bunks lies to starboard, opposite an L-shaped settee with a drop-down, bulkhead-mounted table to port. This table is a bit small for the six people that the boat can sleep, and it's too far from the starboard settee. Aboard Scimitar, we get around the problem by adding two folding teak tables that we store, held by bungee cords, behind the door to the aft cabin. The V-berth is quite roomy, and the forward head has a shower and a sink and also an electric toilet that we added.

With two hanging lockers, plenty of drawers, shelves, and cupboards, plus two large cockpit lockers, the CSY 37 offers a lot of storage for a boat of its size. Six opening hatches and nine ports provide exceptional ventilation. A charcoal heater is a plus for cold-weather sailing.
