BROKER'S COMMENT: This is a very roomy and comfortable center-cockpit ketch which has had much upgrading. A full list can be provided. The owner has refinished all of her exterior bright-work and attended to all items found in a survey three years ago. Gulfstar yachts of this vintage are nicely finished and good looking. The owner has also been pleased with her sailing performance. She is fully found and ready to head south. .
