1978 Gulfstar Yachts 50 Sloop/Owner's Edition located in California for sale

50' Gulfstar Yachts 50 Sloop/Owner's Edition


The perfect center cockpit with large aft cabin, cruising sailboat! With two large cabins and lots of storage space, this is a wonderful boat for a cruising couple or family; for me it has been the perfect boat for a solo lady skipper living an adventure in Mexico. In fact, when I moved my stuff from the boat to a house this year, I was amazed at how many Volvo wagon loads it took to take my things out of all the hanging lockers, drawers, and storage. Tall people will appreciate the headroom throughout. Built in 1978 so fiberglass hull is thick and interior has beautiful wood everywhere.

The boat is currently located in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico but soon will be in San Diego. For the last ten years, I have lived aboard and taken people for day and weekend trips to the local islands. The rigging was replaced and the mast painted in 2007. I have an excellent mechanic who has kept the engine, generator, and all systems in good working condition. Add new electronics, and you will have a fabulous boat at a great price.

For me this boatís most attractive feature is its interior. The sun-filled master stateroom aft with an en suite head and separate shower boasts an enormous U-shaped double berth with enough space for a couple to sleep together athwart ship while in harbor or separately in lateral positions while at sea. The forward stateroom, which shares a head with the saloon, has a large V-berth that fills in to form a double. The L-shaped galley runs down the walk-through alley under the center cockpit to port, with twin sinks close enough to the centerline to drain on either tack. The saloon has a dinette to port and a settee plus a pilot berth to starboard. However the previous owner installed a beautiful wood wine cabinet in the berth which I have found much more useful to have on board than a pilot. The two cabin layout means that the Nav. station and engine room are both spacious. Teak and holly floors flow throughout the vessel.

Large L-shaped galley has double stainless steel sinks, pressure water system and foot pumps for fresh and salt water. Shipmate three-burner stove with oven large enough for a Thanksgiving turkey. Electric freezer and refrigerator are under the counter so there is ample counter space with wonderful storage behind and below the counter, including a large space for microwave oven.
