New Era Yachts
The CSY 44 turned is a ruggedly built center cockpit cruising yacht. Her strong build, long waterline, fin keel with cutaway forefoot, coupled with a moderate sail area gives her plenty of power under sail but she's also easily managed and has great sea-keeping ability. These characteristics have given her remarkable longevity and dozens if not hundreds are still sailing all over the world.
Down below she's a delight with open spaces, nice galley, two heads with showers and two comfortably separated staterooms. Her ample beam, carried well aft, provides for a multitude of storage areas, huge tankage and easy living in the main salon. These features are further enhanced by 20 opening (bronze!) ports and 3 additional opening hatches. "Sterling" also has 6 12v fans, 2 in each stateroom plus 2 in the salon.
"Sterling" takes all of these original features and ups the game with a complete refurbishment in 2018 performed by a Swedish yacht technician. She's in excellent condition as you will see from the attached photos. Please also note her extensive equipment list.
