SOLD! CSY 44 Walkthru for Sale - Soggy Paws
« on: June 12, 2015, 10:30:48 PM »
Hi all,

We have big news!  We have just bought a catamaran.  This has been something Dave and I have talked about for several years, and when a "deal" crossed our path, we jumped on it.

So our beloved Soggy Paws, which we have owned for 18 years, is now for sale.  We have just posted an ad on Sailboat Listings.  Here:

http://www.sailboatlistings.com/view/50976

As most of you no doubt know, we have many many upgrades on Soggy Paws that are too numerous to list in an ad.  As we were equipping Soggy Paws for long term cruising, we have bought tens of thousands of dollars worth of spares, so we could fix anything ourselves in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

Soggy Paws is currently in the Philippines, undergoing a complete cosmetic refit--new Awlgrip paint on hull and decks, and interior painting and varnishing.  In a few months she will look like new.  But you couldn't buy a new boat like this for less than $500,000 dollars.  They just don't build them like this any more.

For some reasons why a CSY should be your boat of choice, check out this page on our website.  And then feel free to browse the "workshop" section for all the upgrades and information about our boat.

http://svsoggypaws.com/AboutCSYBoats.htm

We realize that it's going to be a hard sell for U.S. buyers to buy a boat in the Philippines, just because of the distance issue.  But if you are getting ready to retire, this is a GREAT place to buy a boat.  No need to make the 30-day crossing from Panama to EXPENSIVE French Polynesia (beer=$5).  From here you can island-hop all over INEXPENSIVE Southeast Asia (beer=$1)--the great diving in the Philippines, Eastern Indonesia (Raja Ampat) and Palau, and then make your way to the best of the South Pacific (Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, Solomons)... we're leaving for there on our new catamaran in January, wanna join us?

If you are seriously interested in the rare CSY 44 Walkthrough, let us know, we'll work with you.  We are willing to rebate the cost of your visit from the final purchase price.  The asking price reflects the final refitted-as-new price.  If you're in a hurry or want to do your own "cosmetic refit" on your own time, and get a discount in the process, let us know.

Dave & Sherry

Just updating on how we're coming on our refit.

We've got a much more complete listing up on our website (but still working on getting more pictures up).

The interior refit is mostly done, except for the aft cabin.  In January we will start painting the hull and deck.  We hope to be completely finished by March.

We have had some interest from several people, but no one has put money down yet, so she's still for sale.

You can see how she's looking here:

Hi everyone,

We're just back in the Philippines, after 3 months in the US.  We are living on Soggy Paws the Cat and finishing the refurb on Soggy Paws the CSY.  More pictures posted recently, and I still have engine room pictures to post. 

As soon as the deck and hull painting is finished, and the aft cabin, we'll update the pics again.

We have several inquiries in the works, but no one has put money down yet.  Still for sale!

We have signed up to participate in a Rally to Indonesia starting in May, so a buyer could participate too, cruising alongside us and learning Soggy Paws with Dave nearby to help and ask questions of.  Come see SE Asia, it's beautiful!

Hi all, just an update.  We are nearly finished on the inside.  The aft cabin came out really nice.  A couple of pictures attached.



The lighting makes the back wall look a little funny, but it is done in the same fashion as the V-berth (see pictures in the Interior section, link below).



We have one very interested prospect from Australia, and a couple of interested prospects in the Philippines.  But nobody has put money down yet.

We have continued to update the For Sale section of the website with new stuff.
http://svsoggypaws.com/CSY/For_Sale.htm

Price is still set at $119,000, but we are open to offers.  This price is in line with past sales of CSY Walkthrough's (the owner's model) in good condition.

We have finished painting the hull and are now working on the deck.  All interior work should be finished this week.

If you are interested, now is the time to get in touch!

I am happy to report that our baby has been sold to a new owner, an enthusiastic guy from Perth Australia.  We'll encourage him to come join our group.
