Rarely does a yacht of this vintage come on the market that has been maintained to such exacting standards. Under the stewardship of her second owner, Sea Hawk has proven to be a competitive racer and a fast and able cruiser. The interior features a very roomy main salon, galley, forward vee birth, navigation station, aft cabin with dedicated head with separate shower, another head accessible from both the main salon as well as the vee birth, ample storage throughout the entire vessel and an engine room with access through two points of entry. The interior teak has been coated with West Clear Epoxy for a rich appearance requiring very low maintenance.
The sail inventory includes a North Mainsail with 2 full battens and 3 sets of reef points in good condition; a North 152% Genoa in excellent condition on a Harken roller furler system; an extra Mainsail and 130% Genoa; a working spinnaker with 18’ spinnaker pole. The rig includes a removable inner head stay for a hank-on heavy air jib. The mast and boom maintained with Awlgrip.
This Gulfstar 44 is powered by the original Perkins 4-108 engine with fewer than 2500 hours of use. It has always run with Mobil 1 synthetic oil. The Perkins provides 10 nautical miles per gallon at 5-6 knot cruising speed with a custom Gori 23x13 folding propeller. Maximum motoring speed over 7.8 knots.
The hull bottom has been resurfaced with 24oz biaxial fiberglass cloth and West Epoxy so blisters will never be a problem. Micron 66 bottom paint wet sanded for superior performance and anti-fouling.
A 280 watt solar panel with MPPT controller and 400 watt Airgen wind generator produce sufficient power eliminating the need for a generator. A Furuno radar is mounted on an aft pole. Ground tackle includes a 45 pound Plow anchor with 3/8” SS chain plus nylon rode; a Danforth 22# and similar lunch hook anchor 14# are included.
