Gulfstar 36 for sale
Man plans, God laughs. After two and a half years of prep work, we have to give up our Gulfstar after 3 months on the loop. The boat is in Sheboygan, Wisconsin at Harbor Center Marina. Online views at skipperbuds.com, #B14220. $23,500.
I did everything I could to make the boat reliable. Both Perkins 4-236 engines have had starters overhauled, fuel injection pumps overhauled, lift pumps replaced, new thermostats and all hoses replaced. Heat exchangers flushed and cleaned. One exhaust elbow replaced. Props trued and balanced. Both struts trued and new cutlass bearings. Raw water intake thru hulls re-bedded and water filters re-sealed. New packing glands for each shaft.
All batteries new in 2013. 6 6v golf cart batts for the house bank. 1000 amp start batts for each engine, 850 amp batt for the genny. Interior was redone stem to stern. Stateroom head has a full size RV gravity head sitting atop a 30 gallon holding tank. Uses about a pint of fresh water per flush. Separate shower in head. Galley has new propane stove/oven. Pictures of the renovation can be seen at our blog and facebook site, Journey of the Lady J.
We're sad to see her go, but she is a real bargain for someone looking for an economical cruiser. At 1750 rpms, she burns 2.4 gallons per hour at 7 to 7.5 knots depending on wind and waves. Her 250 gallon tank gives her long legs.
