1987 Gulfstar 50

Colon

$75,000

The Gulfstar 50 CSY is one of the most saught after of the well regarded in the Gulfstar line.  She is a blue water cruiser, easily handled by a couple, and sails comfortably in all wind and sea.  The design on this yacht provides amazing headroom throughout and sleeps 6 comfortably in cabins (room for 2+ on the salon sofas).   The walk over, center cockpit creates a huge engine room with walk around space and room to store all your tools and extra equipment.   Additionally, this unique design creates a spacious and private master suit with great lighting, storage space, and full private head.

El Sueño was extensively re-fit in 2017 with ongoing upgrades since to produce a premier Gulfstar 50.  This vessel is a remarkable value and serious Gulfstar 50 buyers should look at this one quickly. Throw your personal gear on, provision, and go.

El Sueño is in full commission and can be seen in Shelter Bay, the beautiful launch point next to the archipelago of San Blas in Panama.
