She was purchased at the 1984 San Diego boat show. A category 1 offshore ocean-crosser with Pacific range commissioned and constructed by Spanish Shipbuilder Astilleros Gallart, designed by renowned French Naval Architect, Presels, the Gallart 44 motorsailor is indeed a heavily constructed and stout vessel. With safety in mind the ship's deck was caulked with 3M5200 and mated/locked to the hull (I have complete original architectural documents) and stainless steel bolted at 2 inch intervals, has 2 forward collision bulkheads, double floor, outside down-in bulkhead steering, no deep cockpit to poop, both reverse transom and canoe stern as well as deck-stepped mast and sliding door rather than covering boards. I am the second owner. The original owner was a senior Nasa research scientist in the space shuttle program. He sailed her 4 years in the South Pacific. She has been to Australia, Tahiti, Vanuatu and dozens of exotic locations. The original owner told me with a triple reef in the main and the working jib she is steady in 50 knots and requires no on deck sail modifications. In her division she placed first in a 500 mile race from New Zealand to Australia.
When I bought her I rigged her very heavily. I spared no expense getting her ready (i.e., 52 Anderson electric winches). Serious financial setbacks prevented me from sailing to Asia. There are many new parts still in the box including ST-60 instruments, Dual Phase Sonar, digital tachs, Heart battery monitor , spare 16,500 A/C unit, and so on. I have no money to refit her I must sell her. Make an offer you could own her for little money. Do not be afraid to make any offer you see fit. You might own her. Buy her cheap, refit her have a pedigreed vessel same quality as Amel or Swan at a fraction of her value. Look at her equipment list. Hit me with an offer.
Giving this boat away for little money is very painful but I must do so.
