1974 Gulf Coast 20

  • LOA 20'
  • Beam 6'11"
  • Ballast 175#
  • Draft: keel up 9", keel down 4'
  • Swing Keel (cast iron, 175 lb)
  • 4 sails: main, jib, genoa, roller furler genoa (jiffy reefing - main)
  • Large, open, self-bailing cockpit
  • Swing keel controlled by winch in cockpit -- when fully raised, no additional draft
  • Kick-up rudder of solid aluminum
  • Aluminum motor mount (only a year old)
  • Cuddy cabin with storage
  • Mid boom mainsheet
  • 1971 4 hp Evinrude short shaft, starts easy and runs good


  • Hull is the very solid. The fiberglass is very thick and solid compared to modern building techniques. The fiberglass is cosmetically weathered from the sun due to outside storage.
  • Mast and boom in good condition
  • Sails are used and show some wear but are in good, usable overall condition
  • Sails are original and in good sailable condition
  • Tiller is old and could use an upgrade
  • Trailer is galvanized with large tires. New lights and wiring installed 10/05.

    This is a great, stable, keeled daysailer. Trailer is road worthy and ready to go. It could be a very economical way to get out on the water. I'm selling it for a friend who is very ill. I have another sailboat or I would keep.

    Dave, Thanks for all your help in selling my GC20. New owner picked it up today and headed home with it. One of the guys that came to look at it made me an offer I could not turn down for my O'day Daysailer and I turned around and purchased a Catalina 22 that I saw on your site. Thanks to you 3 boats have changed hands in the past 3 weeks. Ron
