1974 Gulfstar MS53 Pilothouse Ketch

My 1974 Gulfstar 53 ft Ketch is available for sale. I spent the last decade cruising from Boston to the Bahamas and down island to Trinidad and back. A case of terminal cancer has ended my ability to continue the cruising life so OSIRIS is up for sale to somebody wishing to own one of the best live-aboard coastal and island cruising boats.

OSIRIS has be "re-manufactured" to bring it up to modern standards in 2000 including a pilothouse, double hull, new Dyform rigging, all new electrics and electronics. and hundreds of other improvements.

Currently I am re-furbishing and replacing the worn parts from the decade of cruising so that the boat will be "ready to go" for another decade. Because of my terminal cancer, OSIRIS is now priced at less than half its market value. You will need to finish the re-furbishing, but almost all the parts and supplies are already on board waiting to be installed.

PM me with an email address and I will send you a detailed description of the boat and systems along with photos. "As is, where is" price is $99,000

Osirissail -- I'm very sorry to hear about your cancer. I'm glad you've had all those years of cruising that incredible boat. Someone will be a very happy next owner.

Blessings and fair winds to you.
