Broker's Comments

A total of just 30 Gulfstar Hirsch 45’s were built. This popular charter version with large cockpit, wide beam & comfortable accommodations became popular in the early 1980's. This particular Hirsch designed 45_CC sloop is Hull #25 & has many recent upgrades to include a new Yanmar diesel with new sails & exterior canvas & sailing instrumentation.
One of the attractive features of this Gulfstar 45 is the absence of exterior teak to reduce the amount of maintenance in that regard. Another favorable feature is the large center cockpit, ideal for entertaining & to provide ample protection for crew while under way. The boat is also fully air conditioned & has had three previous owners. The current owners have sailed the boat from Florida to the Texas Gulf Coast where she currently lies waiting her new found owners to Sail out across the horizon on her next Blue water Adventure.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
