There is an abundance of storage throughout - two huge hanging lockers in the salon plus rattan-faced lockers and shelving above both the dinette and settee.

BLOW ME AWAY is the popular ketch rigged Gulfstar 50 This is the perfect sail plan for offshore, offering endless versatility for whatever the weather and seas bring you.
This ketch rigged vessel is rigged with aluminum main and mizzen masts and booms. The masts and booms are painted white. The booms have upgraded boom wings to catch the sails on both main and mizzen. There are Hood roller furlers on both the jib and staysail. The running rigging has been replaced as needed.
The sail plan is not particularly large. Still, the GS 50 is not exactly a slouch when it comes to speed, though it does like moderate to heavy weather better than the light stuff. It?s not hard to keep the boat moving at 7 knots or better under working sail if the wind is blowing over 12 knots. Below that, you?ll need to break out spinnakers and mizzen staysails to maintain good speed.
