1981 Gulfstar 44 now for sale with DBY Boat Sales

Lodestar 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 held to higher standards than today's production boats.

When purchased new, she sailed in fresh water in the Great Lakes in America for 25 years. Every winter she was hauled out and winterized for the season. After being sold, she was on the dock at a marina in Texas 10 years and was used as an occasional live-aboard, rarely being 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.
