Gulfstar 44 - Lodestar - $155,000

Lodestar is a Gulfstar 44, built in the US in 1981 that is now listed exclusively for sale with YOTI Bluewater. 
This Gulfstar 44 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 paramount in boat building. When purchased new, she sailed in fresh water in the Great Lakes in America for 25 years. Every winter she was hauled out and winterised for the season. 

Her next owner berthed her at a marina in Texas 10 years where she was used as an occasional live aboard and rarely taken out to sea. The next owner took her to Florida where she was fully refitted with modern accommodations and new upgrades for comfort. 
It is being sold as a turn key vessel with everything you would need on board to cruise the world. This 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.
