Centre cockpit with hard dodger with probably a Strataglass enclosure, good steering station. Non self-tailing winches. Aft cabin, 2 heads. No windlass and no mention of anchors. Outside wood looks great. Interior is really good.

Definitely better value for money than a lot of other boats on here. I think she has/had very meticulous owner.

It is late in the year to sell a boat in the North. Make a deal!

They are very good boats - one of John Kretschmer's favorite designs, he said it is a better boat than a Hylas 44. As for the old Perkins, they run forever. Those boats usually go for quite a bit more looking much more sorry than that one. I think you are right, he is fighting winter storage up in Ohio.

There is no way a Gulfstar being a better boat than a Hylas 44. Hylas 44 is a top quality yacht. No expense spared, fine tuned boat. At best a Gulfstar is a Chevrolet of the bay.

John Kretchmer's words, not mine. Take it up with him. It's a pretty good endorsement of the 44.

Canadian dollarette going up? Who knew?

That boat is probably easily salvageable and worth buying.
He might even take an offer in full-sized $
