Bodega Bay California
$175.000

Mucho Gusto has been a constantly upgraded yacht since she was splashed. My wife and I, having lots of ocean miles between us, made the systems more robust and updated almost everything. Modern electronics, new forward cabin layout, new navigation station. As well as a new look. You will not see many round hulled Aluminum boats, the design and execution is very well done.

Re: 47'Custom Aluminum Performance Cruiser Gary Mull Design

Guys, I went and viewed his boat back in the Fall of 2017. This is a very well appointed boat. All systems like water, refridgeration, motor are so easily accessed. If I was into long off shore adventures I would have bought this fine boat.

I am not connected to the seller at all. But I just want CF members to know this is a very nice aluminum boat and very well maintained. I just adore this boat.

Re: 47'Custom Aluminum Performance Cruiser Gary Mull Design

Thanks for the note Alan. I had a friend of Gary Mulls aboard in April. He really liked it also, but like you isn't looking for a cruising boat.
It's a boat that all the owners have missed after selling. Not the best day of their lives.

Mucho Gusto is a performance cruiser. Professionally built hull by Kingston boatyard in Kingston Ontario. Light weight and strong. Her ability to sail in light air makes her great for long passages. With her stay sail she balances well in heavy air. With a very tall rig, rod rigging, and new lightweight running rigging she sails like a race boat. She has cruised Mexico with three different owners. I have sailed her in Mexico three times. Our last trip was for 6 months in 2014 and she is ready to go again.
Over 40K in up grades.
Asking $175,000

Why aluminum.
I met Beth Leonard after she had been around the world on a Shannon. They were stopping cruising to build an Aluminum boat. I wondered why. After a lot of miles myself I found Mucho Gusto and at that point I knew why.
DB: Beth Leonard and Evans Starzinger sailed their Shannon 37, Silk on their first circumnavigation in 1992 for three years and 40,000 miles. For their second circumnavigation, they sailed Hawk, a 47-foot aluminum Van de Stadt Samoa design from 1999-2009 through the high latitudes by way of the Great Capes. They have sailed Hawk 75,000 miles.
The first circumnavigation is documented in Beth’s book, Following Seas.
Stories from their travels on Hawk are in the book, Blue Horizons.
And in my opinion, the best book on outfitting a cruising boat is the Voyager’s Handbook, written by Beth Leonard.
You both a very well known in the cruising community, thank you for taking the time to talk to MBQ.
After a circumnavigation on a fiberglass boat why did you chose aluminum for Hawk?
B&E: Most people guess we chose metal for strength, as we planned to go to the high latitudes. But in fact we picked it because we could make the decks absolutely leak proof. Our experience with fiberglass decks was that after two or so ocean crossings the boat had worked enough that at least a few of the fasteners through the deck would start leaking. There are zero fastener holes through Hawk’s deck. Everything is either welded on, or machine screwed to blind tapped plates that are welded on.
We picked aluminum over steel both because it is less maintenance, and because it can produce a better performing/sailing boat. You just don’t have to keep after rust the way you do on a steel boat.
