Blue Turtle Cruising

Interior tour of our 44′ CSY Walk Over sailboat (Photo + Video)

Now that we’ve settled in properly and I finally finished sewing the interior seat cushions, I thought I would snap a few photos (since I just cleaned) of the interior of our sailboat. I also took video as well, so see the end of this post for the video tour.

Our sailboat is a 44′ CSY “walk over”. CSY made the 44′ sailboat with two layouts: a walk thru and a walk over. Since the boat has a center cockpit, this means that in the walk over the cabins below are separated by the cockpit. The walk thru has the aft cabin and main cabin connected by a skinny hallway. Its galley is also situated on the starboard side. The walk over (like ours) does not have this connecting hallway. The cabins are completely separate and the only way to get from one to the other is to “walk over” the cockpit.

The Main Cabin

The main cabin is our main living area. It’s where the galley and primary eating spot is located. Walking forward, there is a full-size shower, separate head and the v-berth.

The Aft Cabin

The aft cabin is our master stateroom. It has a bed, head and navigation table with a large locker under it.

  1. Hi Guys, love what you’ve done!!
    I have a 78 walkover and am in the process of overhauling the interior to suit my purposes. Could I ask what timber you used for the changes to the original? Teak is a) hard to source and b) prohibitively expensive, especially in Australia.

    • Hi Ken,

      Unfortunately, we didn’t do any of the interior renovation. We bough the boat like it is. I’m not sure what type wood was used. If I can find out from the previous owner, I’ll post here.
