The Gulfstar 37 was well-built, comfortable and sailed like a dream. But the manufacturer used some techniques and materials to hold costs down. Many owners of these boats also allowed their boats to deteriorate over the decades.
Jewell is totally different! The current is a master craftsman and he wasn't satisfied with the boat so he totally gutted the interior and rebuilt it from the fiberglass hull in. He used the finest materials, the best craftsmanship and a cruiser's ingenuity to craft the perfect cruising sailboat for a couple on a limited budget. Unfortunately for him, after years of cruising in the Caribbean he'll never get that money back but he loved it for cruising and now you, the new owner can enjoy the terrific results for a small fraction of the money spent on it.

AccommodationsGulfstar was a well-built production boat that could accommodate a lot of people in a modest space. To keep costs and price low Gulfstar used some economical but not top drawer materials and focused on efficient production techniques. Over the years as the boats had hard use and wear many of the boats showed their age and many older boats haven't held up well. The owner of Jewell bought the boat showing its age and decided to do a rebuild. Sometimes rebuilds are more like redecorating or the craftsmanship isn't professional, the materials aren't the best or the ideas about redesign that sound good to the owner don't necessarily sound good to others.
 
Jewell's owner is a talented, creative, meticulous craftsman who wanted to convert it into a great comfortable cruiser for two with reasonable accommodations for occasional guests. He ripped out everything to the bare hull and built an entirely new interior with the finest of materials and professional quality craftsmanship. He also incorporated ingenious ideas to make it a uniquely comfortable, spacious boat with convenient features that anyone will appreciate. Most cabin soles are marine plywood with a thin plywood on top covered with a thin teak and holly veneer. Jewell's sole is heavy marine grade plywood with hand laid 1/4" jatoba and oak strips hand finished with marine varnish. Jatoba, also called Brazillian Cherry is a hard, dense, wood whose dark color is a perfect compliment to the lighter color sturdy oak.
 
From the companionway take four short steps to the saloon. To port is the galley, forward of the galley is a straight settee with storage above and below. Both settees slide out to make  double berths for guests. Forward of the settee is a custom cabinet to house the air conditioner. Opposite the port settee is another straight settee with storage above. Aft of the starboard settee is the nav station. A beautiful custom made table with 2 drop leaves is on the center line serving two, four or more but folds to provide comfortable seating at other times
 
Forward and to port is a short passage. A door opens into the head on the starboard side. A door forward opens into the owner's stateroom. A custom hanging locker is to port. Additional storage space is built into the port and starboard sides of the berth and below the berth. A stack of custom drawers are on the starboard side extending all the way to the hull. A second private door opens to the head with shower.
