The CS 40' was in regular production from 1987-1992. In 2000, the company reopened for custom production, and " Duchess " was built and commissioned in 2001. She represents the opportunity to purchase a classically lined ocean- cruiser with a design dedicated to performance. Every aspect of the construction process and the outfitting followed an "overbuild" philosophy. She is a rare blend of comfort, safety, and modern amenity.
