$12,500 as she sits
Good bones, very solid boat
Worthy of a full renovation with much of the hardest work already complete.
I recently started a business and my daughter started playing softball, so I no longer have the time to devote to this vessel. I can't stand to see a nice boat neglected, by me or anyone else; someone who will treat her right deserves to take her over.
Regretfully selling "Good Times". She is a 41' sloop rigged, twin cabin, twin head, center cockpit drafting under 5'. This is a true bluewater cruiser, yet sits shallow enough for almost any anchorage and easily handled short-handed. Many circumnavigations have been completed in sister ships. Good Times is coastguard registered.
She is currently under renovation and ready for a new interior (as you can see in the photos). The previous owner professionally rewired the 120v and 12v systems. New through hulls have been installed. Structural work for the interior is complete Good Times is a couple of weekends of work away from being ready to sail locally, more work is required before offshore adventures are advisable. Her 50hp Perkins diesel ran well until a fuel fitting failed a few months ago. I have the new part and intend to install it when I can get away for an afternoon. She is a very dry boat for the age and condition. She sat for three months with a failed bilge pump and had very minimal water accumulate in the bilge.
There are various bits and pieces that came with her when purchased, they will go along to her new home. This includes a roller furling for the head sail.
I have seen Gulfstar 41s in Bristol condition fetch over $100,000 in the past few years. Finding a seaworthy example under $60,000 is increasingly difficult. The 41s are solid workhorses that were generally overbuilt and eager to be put through their paces. I have seen far worse examples sell for thousands more than I am asking.
