1987 Gulfstar Hirsch 45

  • Please take the time to compare this boat to every other boat on the market in this price range. You will find that it's the lowest cost, newest looking inside, and best kept model. With a huge aft stateroom and shower it's comfortable too. How do I know? I just bought it last year and searched exhaustively.

    We put $23K into a massive refit less than a year ago. We brought the interior up to the standards of a 2006 boat. Please see the photos and video below to really believe what this interior looks like.

    The boat has everything needed for extended cruising. Just today, we returned to the dock after cruising since April 06. We didn't use a mooring or a dock the entire time. The boat is completely self sufficient, with the exception of having to pick up diesel and water once a month while cruising. This boat spent the past 10 years of its life in fresh water in the Great Lakes.

    PS: After setting this boat up for extended cruising, we have suffered a financial setback that prevents us from crusing any longer. I hope to sell this boat to someone who will cherish her and all of the time and money we put into her. I want to find her a good home.
