Czarinna 30

Czarinna30ErieCanalShe is a very traditional looking yacht with a plumb bow and a fantail stern forming the ends of an easily driven hull. Her forward pilothouse meshes nicely with a large beamy main salon aft of the helm/galley area. Comfort underway is of main importance here with 6’4″ head room in the main salon. Four large opening windows in the salon area are set to perfect viewing height while seated in the salon. There is also a large 24″ x 36″ hatch/skylight on the salon cabin top which hinges upward for ventilation.

The head is on the starboard side, at the aft end of the main salon. With the water closet and a remarkable Pullman-style sink/wash basin that folds onto the bulkhead, this head compartment can convert into a shower stall for longer cruises.

A solid-fuel heater is mounted on the forward bulkhead of the head. In winter, the boat is warm and dry without the sweating and mildew problems normally associated with most boats in today’s market. In the summer, the feeling in the main salon is like sitting in a large screened porch. Both settees are 68″ long and double as berths. There is a folding leaf table which can accommodate anything from casual drinks to formal dining for four.

Forward of the main salon is the raised pilothouse with port and starboard helm seats and galley space aft on both sides. Refrigeration tucks neatly below the companion helm seat and there is stowage on both sides under the counters. A propane stove allows the cook to enjoy the ride in the pilothouse with excellent visibility and full 72″ headroom. Forward in the fo’c’sle, accessible through a hinged hatch, is a large berth and storage area. This can be a private suite or out-of-the-way storage.

The twin 18 hp YANMAR diesels will cruise Czarinna at 7 knots at 1900 RPM. Czarinna30LateThe noise, vibration and smell normally associated with high speed boats just doesn’t develop on Czarinna. Each engine is tucked out of the way, under the settees, port and starboard, in a sound insulated seat compartment. Fuel consumption is very economical, two-thirds of a gallon of diesel per hour, at her cruising speed of 7 knots. It’s hard to imagine cruising more economically than this these days.

Czarinna 43

This is an elongated version of the Czarinna 35. This version was designed to accommodate a live-aboard couple, or a family for extended cruising. With attention to function, privacy and an open feeling, the Czarinna 43 provides amenities, comfort and stylish character combined with performance and ease of handling. The aft cockpit is large with wrap-around stern decks suitable for seating a crowd for drinks, dinner or cruising. Entering the main salon, the head is to starboard and a separate shower to port. The shower can double as a wet hanging locker in damp conditions. Continuing forward is the dinette with fore-and-aft facing seats to port. To starboard is a fireplace and galley area. The galley is a well-planned design for cooking ease. Forward of the galley are the helm and pilothouse areas with excellent visibility and a comfortable area for helm and co-helm seats. A chart table is located just behind the co-helm.

Sliding companionway doors are accessible from the helm and co-helm seats both to port and starboard. The skipper or crew can go forward from these doors or walk along the decks from the cockpit using the handrails for security. Two steps down from the pilothouse you are in the fo’c’sle, with a comfortable settee berth for a single to port and a large bureau to starboard. A large double berth with twin book and night stand lockers round out the main sleeping area. The entire fo’c’sle area can be closed off with sliding doors for privacy when cruising with several people. The headroom is 6 feet 1 inch in the fo’c’sle, 7 feet in the pilothouse, and 6 feet 6 inch in the main salon.

The Czarinna 43 is long and narrow and, therefore, economically driven. It can weather out most Northwest storms. Power is either a 100 hp single diesel or twin 44 hp diesels, at the owner’s preference. Cruising at 10 knot speeds yields 2-3 gallons of fuel per hour consumption. Tankage for fuel can allow up to 1,000 nautical mile range and water tankage is 250 gallons in twin tanks. The displacement is 19,400 lbs. in full load trim. — Sam Devlin

Czarinna 35

The image of a traditional fantail cruising yacht is one of idic grace and charm, style and comfort. Combine those ingredients with modern technology and the result is the Czarinna 35, the perfect marriage of idic design and today’s technology.

The cabin and main salon, though elegant, are very functional. Czarinna’s main salon has 6’4″ head room. The starboard dinette seats four and converts to a double berth. The large settee to port provides seating and also converts to sleeping quarters. A solid fuel, bulkhead heater keeps the cabin warm and cozy. In the heat of summer, four large opening windows and a skylight keep the cabin cool and airy.

Czarinna35InteriorIn the aft section of the main salon, you will find the head-and-sink compartment on the starboard side and the full standing shower on the port side.

In the pilothouse forward, is the galley, aft of the steering station: It includes a refrigerator and built-in port and starboard storage lockers. The two-burner, propane range and oven are to starboard. The size and layout give the cook ample room to prepare a feast for many. Built-in tanks provide 165 gallons of fresh water.

Czarinna35HelmOur choice for engines are two YANMAR 3GMF-27 diesels which produce 27 HP each. These highly efficient and reliable engines drive her at a cruising range of 680 nautical miles.

The Czarinna 35′ has many areas for storing gear and accommodating you and your guests in graceful style. She is truly a safe haven from a frantic world. — Sam Devlin
