This is a perfect boat for the person that wants the largest interior of any 44 foot boat in the world for a low price and a little sweat equity.  Here is my sad story. I am the 3ed owner since new. Purchased this boat in 1993 and traveled the NE and lived aboard during the spring, summer and fall.  A divorce kept the boat from leaving New York by the courts. I moved to FL.  It has been stored on land and survived Sandy with no Damage.     Well after many years the court says it all mine (USCG document has only my name with no issues).  As  it is in NY and I am in FL with great regret I need to sell.This boat is not ready to go. But  it can be kept in the current yard while made ready.  I will do my best to cover each part of the boat on the good and the bad. The pictures you see here taken 6/22/16 .     Hull:    NO PROBLEMS. 10 years ago I had the bottom shaved and re glassed with epoxy resin (110 gal of epoxy) and the hull repainted at a cost of $35,000.  All the through hulls were replaced with all new ball valves.  No soft spots anywhere. new cutlass bearings.    Crane for lifting dingy on aft roof.  Need power wash only. and revarnish teakInterior:   The inside wood is in very good condition please look at the pictures. No rotted wood no soft spots. boat has been dry inside.Gally: Full size refrigerator, princess stove and SS microwave.  all goodHeads:   Forward  Manuel head with shower    Aft Head:  Freshwater head, shower with bathtub. all goodTanks: 1- 250 gal water tank  1-200 gal water tank  1- 500 gal fuel tank   water tanks were filled with antifreeze when storedElectronics: GPS , VHF, stereo what you see in the picturesEngines:  Two-   Perkins 130 HP 6-354N  Port engine Turns and was running great when stored 1650 hours (may need exhaust manifold, but there is a spare on the boat)                                                                   Starboard  engine   when checking on boat 3 years ago the engine would not turn. Removed the injectors and rockers and think its a lifter stuck.

They can be rebuilt in frame for $850 per kit               Generator: 8KW Onan  This was installed by the last owner replacing the 7.5 that came with the boat.  It has a sound shield. The thieves tried to steal this but only unbolted it from its mount. It has 560 hours.  Needs to be bolted in place.This vessel is currently selling for :   $85,000 - $125,000 ready to go. (?)     This is a easy project as the engine and generator  are the most work the rest is just cleaning and miscellaneous repairs.  There are many spares on board and many custom add ins.  I have  a reserve but it is about 25% of the market value of a ready to go boat.Please ask questionsThe boat id located in Nichols Marina in Staten Island NY and can be seen  from the Outside.        If you want to see more please contact me.Thanks For looking  44’ Gulfstar M.C. 1979 Sundeck Trawler, Documented Vessel.  Solid glass hull with hard chines to stabilize, full keel to protect props, all fiberglass non-corroding tanks, custom hardtop on fly bridge, Ideal windless,  claw anchor , swim platform w/swim ladder,  fender racks on bow w/fenders,    Engine Room -  Twin Perkins 130 h.p. naturally aspirated diesels (6-354) in stand up engine room w/easy access all around engines, packing glands w/Teflon no drip packing,both engines have custom fresh water cooling on exhaust manifolds,, sea strainers for engines, generator & a/c,  , automatic CO² system for fire extinguishing in engine room and in generator room.  Spares and filters for many of the operating systems.   Electrical – 8.0kw Onan Generator,, 2-4D starting batteries 3-zone a/c w/reverse cycle heat and new electronic thermostats, battery charger – converter, #27 battery for windlass,  .   Accommodations – Approx. 14 x 14 covered aft deck w/vinyl windows   Approx. 14 x 14 aft master w/centerline queen ( custom latex foam mattress) w/drawers below, built in vanity, chests, desk & hanging lockers, tub & shower,  Fresh water electric Head.  Salon has custom built-ins and 2 swivel chairs, custom drapes & Venetian blinds, bar stools & bar, also lower station with full instrumentation.    forward V Berths head w/electrosan and separate stall shower.   Galley – Princess elect stove w/oven, full size refrigerator w/freezer & icemaker, microwave, R.O. water filter, 15 gal. water heater,   washer & dryer, double sink, toaster oven.
