Looking for a deal on a fully-loaded cruising yacht? Here is a rare opportunity to purchase a stout and seaworthy vessel, for a fraction of what has been invested in her!
Starting with a new Cummins 155HP diesel in 2003 by her original owner, subsequent owners have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in this solid bluewater cruising platform. All major systems have been upgraded, rebuilt or replaced with top-quality equipment, with no regard to cost...for the ultimate in seaworthiness, safety, comfort and convenience with incredible attention to detail. She is virtually ready for provisions and departure, with nothing overlooked, the best available of everything, with redundant systems for added safety and reliability.
Her original owner installed a new 155 HP Cummins diesel and new running gear in 2003. He also replaced the rudder with a new one of heavier construction. In 2008, her next owners put in all new Lewmar hatches, removed and replaced windows, installed custom window treatments, and installed solar panels, replaced all electronics, and more.
Her third owners purchased her in 2009 and spared no expenses in completing her re-fit, in preparation for a two-year Mexico cruise in 2010. Major improvements continued upon their return, totaling over $250K spent since purchase. Main upgrades included a full LP paint job, all new electrical and deluxe breaker panel, a feathering Max-prop, SSB radio & multiple VHF's; 20 GPH watermaker; thousands in custom stainless work (including custom bowsprit w/ ROCNA Anchor); new air conditioning, new plumbing, new heads, new custom mattresses, new headliner with LED lighting; new upholstery, new carpet, new refrigerator, stove & icemaker; all new stainless ports: many new winches; mast & boom pulled, rebuilt & repainted; new SS rigging and SS chainplates; new canvas and much more. Over $250K was invested since purchase.
Another $250K in upgrades (plus maintenance!) since 2015, using all top vendors for professional installation. Highlights include a new LP paint above toe rail in 2019, all-new $25K B&G electronics package in 2019, new 6KW Northern lights genset 2019, new AGM batteries 2019, new solar panels 2020, new inverter 2018, Side-Power bow thruster 2016, Eclectic wind generator with custom mount 2019. Plus a new mainsail, 135 percent genoa and cruising spinnaker, 2020; new Pex plumbing; lifelines replaced with solid stainless railings, the list goes on. In short, she has the latest and greatest of everything imaginable!
They don't build them like this anymore! Gulfstar was the "Cadillac" of her day, and she is incredibly solid. Hull thickness reported to be 1-1/4" solid fiberglass. Fully loaded, she was 50,000 pounds at last haulout. So naturally, I was amazed to see 5.9 knots on a beam reach, with only 9.3 knots true wind speed on a beam reach. Yet, under power she motors at a "trawler speed" of 8 knots, while burning only 1.8 GPH. (That's 4.4 miles per gallon.) Her 200 gallon fiberglass fuel tank gives her a range of 800 NM under power...and is unlimited under sail. She truly offers the best of both worlds. With her huge interior, large salon windows and 6'7" headroom, she is comfortable and inviting, inside and out. Note that the "performance cruiser" underbody is a modified-fin keel, with a skeg-hung rudder.
This boat must been seen to be appreciated!
CLICK ON FULL SPECS TO SEE ALL THAT HAS BEEN DONE TO THIS YACHT.
The beautiful RAISED SALON features traditional teak, comfortable seating, 6'7" headroom, and 270 degree views through the large pilothouse windows. There is an L-settee to port with a convertible teak dinette table, and a large settee to starboard. Features include:
The MASTER STATEROOM is aft. The centerline queen-berth features a custom mattress by HMC, latex foam with inner springs, for the ultimate in comfort. There is plenty of room for living aboard, with a full size hanging locker, 12 drawers, and a full size mirror. Four opening ports and a newer Lewmar hatch provide fresh air. New cabin fans with (red or white) LED lights. An "intruder alarm" button is to port, which activates an alarm and strobe light on the aft deck. USB ports installed for convenient power to phones and laptops.Â
The MASTER STATEROOM HEAD has a large stall shower The head compartment had a major remodel in 2013, with a new head, new Formica in shower, new fixtures, and new sump pump. The head is a "quiet-flush" type and is plumbed to odor-free freshwater, but can be switched to salt water.Â The teak shower grate was replaced with a low-maintenance "Star-Board" custom grate in 2018.Â
The GUEST STATEROOM is forward, with a V-berth. A new Lewmar hatch was installed in 2008. There are two opening ports, three drawers, a hanging locker, and reading lights. In 2009 the V-berth filler was permanently fixed to make a huge 84" x 82" berth, which can sleep two large adults comfortably. The mattress is two-density laminated foam.Â
The GUEST HEAD is to starboard. It has a stall shower with 6'2" headroom, two opening ports, a new electric head in 2020, a sink with vanity, and ample storage space. The head is also a quiet-flush type, currently plumbed odor-free on fresh water. (Can be converted back to salt water.) The stall shower is currently modified for cruising, with removable shelves for additional storage. A canvas curtain conceals the storage area. (See photos) If desired, the shelves easily be removed, and the shower restored to use.Â
The NAVIGATION STATION is to starboard. It has a table and drawers, computer modem/work station, VHF, SSB radio, and power management & water level displays. The rest of the electronics are in a "Nav-Pod" at the helm station. Using the "Link" app, your iPad can display the B&G navigational displays.Â Â
The galley is down to port. It is unusually spacious, with plenty of storage and counter space. In 2009 the small overhead hatch was replaced with large Lewmar hatch, facing aft, for outstanding light and exhaust ventilation.Â
The electrical systems have been professionally upgraded beyond belief, by her current and prior owners.Â
The CUMMINS 155 HP DIESEL was installed in 2003, including new shaft, prop, stuffing box, muffler, instrument panel, and all associated hardware, at a cost of over $25,000. Serial number indicates engine manufactured 2001; sold and installed 2003. Current hours approx 1600.Â
