Gulfstar 44



Luckystar is a cruising ready sailboat that has been meticulously maintained throughout the years. She was built in 1981 when attention to detail and craftsmanship were held to higher standards than todays prduction boats.

When purchased new, she sailed in fresh water in the Great Lakes in America for 25 years. Every winter she was hauled out and winterized for the season. After being sold she was on the dock in Texas for 10 years and was used as an occasional live-aboard rearly being taken out to sea. The next owner took her to Florida where she was refitted with modern accomodation and new upgrades for comfort.

This yacht is being sold as a turn-key vessel with every you would need to on board to cruise the world.

The Gulfstar design is world renowned for being capable and comfortable in a wide variety of sea conditions. She is perfect as a live-aboard or ideal for the seasoned cruiser looking to explore the world.
