1979 GulfStar SailMaster 47

About this Sailboat:

There are basically two major categories of cruising sailors. There are the “Sailing Cruisers” and there are “Cruising Cruisers”, and a number of sub-categories in between. The first are out there to get the ‘miles under the keel’ and spend relatively little time in ports and anchorages, many having a schedule to meet or beat. The Cruising types travel at their own pace and stop to ‘smell the roses’, see some of the sights and maybe try to learn some of the culture and language. Force Nothing was designed, built and outfitted for this latter group of Cruisers. She is strong, spacious, comfortable and safe; all that make Cruising a delight as compared to a camping trip. If you are of that latter group, even to some extent, check her out, and contaxt us for more info, and the three lists of equipment, spares, tools, etc.
