When we were looking for our boat in the price
range as well, we continued to seek out heavier displacement
boats for their size so that they would have a smoother ride. We continued to find and like the center cockpit
Gulfstars. We settled on a sloop
for easier sailing and less ongoing cost for maintenance
. MI don't know how many of these are for sail now in the Med but I know many people have sailed them across the Atlantic to the Med so they may be for sale
there as well.
We have lived aboard our Gulfstar
for over two years and love her. We sailed her along the US Gulf coast
most of her inside as well as giving her new paint
from the toe rails to bottom paint
We are regretfully selling our Gulfstar
at this time. It is worth taking a look at and seeing if you get some ideas for projects you may want to do on something you do find (full blog of most of the projects we did as well)
If you would be interested in looking at her., below is a link to her listing, feel free to Private message me or you can contact Carolyn at the link included. I would be happy to discuss Gulfstars as well if you had questions about them.
