 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.

Design Comments

The Canadian Sailcraft 40' (CS 40") was designed by the successful British racing yacht designer Tony Castro, her lines and sail plan are essentially those of a modified Castro One Ton race boat. It is an ocean racer, that is fast, stiff, and responsive. 

   In appreciation of the design, quality and finish of the CS 40 was voted Sailing World Magazines "top of her class" in their annual Boat of the Year Awards, beating the Farr 38 and the Swan 61 into joint second place.
