The Sailcruiser series are the height of the skill of Gulfstar yachts. The hull was computer designed and according to all reports has excellent sea handling characteristics under sail and power. Twin turbocharged diesels allow good motoring or motorsailing performance under one or both engines. They make docking and maneuvering easy. The interior is a symphony of stunning light teak joinery with Gulfstars legendary cambered corners, cabinetry, and cabin doors. Clearly comfort and saftey can be experienced in the large enclosed center cockpit with easy access below.

Her owner's have kept and cared for her and reluctantly are "Just finished with cruising". She is on her way to Fort Lauderdale, FL to find her next captain to explore the world. This can easily be accomplished with her stout build, heavy displacement and relatively low draft.

More about & boats built by: Gulfstar Yachts

You enter down with high freeboard and high cockpit of the 54 Sailcruiser into a salon you could dance in. Headroom is excellent 7 plus. Here, the Sailmaster really shines with her airy headliner,beautiful teak and deck saloon windows. The sole is nice contrasting teak and holly. Starboard is a U-shaped settee with swivel chairs to port. This layout is smart and comfortable. Forwardmost in the bow is a centerline queen berth. Portside aft is a head with separate stall shower. The main mast is keel stepped. The teak is classic with the mitered trim, cambered edges, and not a square corner or speck of formica in sight. A two step up into the saloon and then two step down aft. The walkthrough is starboardside with the galley alongside and engine access through a door. Aftmost is an interesting aft facing centerline queen berth. A separate head and shower is portside. The shower steps way down into the bilge centerline so that she doubles as a tub. The walkthrough maintains excellent headroom. Aft in the master stateroom is a smaller door to the aftmost cockpit.

Construction & Deck

The 54 Sailcruiser is classic Richard Lazzara design with a powerfully raked bow. The foredeck is flush and the 159 beam set slightly forward of amidships. At a beam over length ratio of 3.3, she is beamy but not extremely so by todays standards. The brightwork is above average with wide teak combings, a caprail, and handrails. Four highly polished chrome dorades shine her up. The cabintrunk rises up high with deck saloon windows and then another hard dodger and top for the main cockpit. The lines blend better than the Sailmaster series but still evoke classic lines. With her twin diesels, the Sailcruiser balances the sailing and motoring worlds. Underneath is a long fin keel, skegged rudder with only 410 draft.
