1980 Gulfstar 44 Center Cockpit

Lancaster, Virginia, United States
$115,000 USD
Condition: excellent

After one more sailing season, We will be selling Latis this Fall, due to a change in geography (we moved too far from the water to use her enough) and are offering details ahead of time. This is one of the nicest Gulfstar 44s out there! They say you buy the previous owners when you buy a used boat.... If that is true then you are getting two meticulous owners! She was a one owner boat for 37 of her 40 years. She was well loved by him, as he put her in a heated shed for the New England winters, with standing orders to the boatyard to have everything in perfect working order for every sailing season. The previous owner did a full refit approximately 13 years ago and mostly daysailed her lightly since then. The refit was done by the professionals at Dodson's Boat Yard in Stonington, CT. New powerplant and genset, new plumbing, new sails, new electrical wiring, LED interior lighting, and the aft cabin refit by a professional carpenter to match the newer G44s, with a centerline queen berth.

When we found her, we knew we found a gem, and had no hesitation buying her. The professional surveyor had this to say about her in 2017: "This Gulfstar is in well above average condition for a vessel of this age. The cosmetics are very good, the equipment has been kept relatively simple. The engine, genset, mast, and nav gear have all been replaced in past years. The vessel has had good professional care at the yard where it is now berthed. Indeed, she presents as near new." The current owner is an airline pilot and is meticulous about everything being in good working order for maximum safety.
