The CS Yacht Owners Associations bring together people from all over the world who own, have owned or wish they owned a CS yacht.[CS34 on a close reach]This wonderful line of racer/cruisers was built in the 70s and 80s, in sizes ranging from 20' to 40'. Canadian Sailcraft unfortunately stopped manufacture in 1992 - a victim, like many other quality boat companies, of the ill-advised U.S. luxury tax. But their boats sail on, providing tremendous pleasure to their proud owners.

Now, please browse our pages as a way of getting to know us. Our site guide at the left will get you started.


Here are some online resources for learning and sharing information about the various CS yachts out there.

  • There are some mailing list servers for the convenience and enjoyment of anyone interested in CS Yachts. They allow you to participate in discussions with others who share that interest.. They are absolutely not to be used for commercial messages or any purpose other than that stated above. Anyone abusing the privelege of joining a list will be removed from it at the sole discretion of the list moderator.
    1. CSOA Groups.io - An e-mail driven forum with an online searchable database of all the past messages shared by CS yacht owners. This also contains the full history of messages from the previous Yahoo ListServ Group.
    2. CSOA Yahoo Group - YAHOO HAS ANNOUNCED THE TERMINATION OF ITS LISTSERVS EFFECTIVE DECEMBER 15, 2020 - This was the original messaging system for CSOA, but Yahoo shut down their online database of messages in October 2019. The e-mail portion of this service survives today but there is no searchable online database anymore. All of these past messages have moved to the CSOA Groups.io system.

  • Thanks, Dan, for setting this up.

  • Do you have sailing knowledge or skills that you would like to share? Can you get them video-taped? Then maybe you'd like to post an instructional video on the internet for the other members of the CS community. Learn more.
