The Gulfstream Yachts 52 is a luxury fishing and cruising yacht that combines the maneuverability of a center-console with the benefits of a sportfish. The walk-around center-console has a large air-conditioned/heated enclosure that includes the helm, dining area, seating, and access to the cabin. Thanks to the 15' beam, there are still very wide walkways around the enclosure as well as convenient handlebars for moving around the outside of the boat safely. The 52 was born from the collaboration between two of the most highly respected superyacht architects in the industry - Ward Setzer and Michael Peters Yacht Design. The result is a truly unique and innovative center-console hybrid that maximizes your comfort on the water.
Versatile in its nature, the Gulfstream 52 can be used as a cutting-edge tournament fishing yacht or as a luxury tender to your luxury superyacht.

The stepped "V" Ventilated Tunnel (SVVT) hull technology provides increased speed, better fuel efficiency, and a flatter running angle for incredible performance on calm or rough water. Known for their patented SVVT designs, there was no question for Ward Setzer or MPYD as to whether the hull should be stepped. "The ride on the Gulfstream 52 is unlike any other center-console yacht I've been on," said Paul MacCormack, United Yacht Sales Gulfstream Brand Manager. "The boat is extremely fast and very smooth. And best of all, everyone on board can enjoy the ride from inside the enclosure or relax on the over-sized sunpad lounge on the bow. It's the best of both worlds."

The below deck cabin can be reached without ever having to go outside and features a head with a shower along with a large seating area that becomes a king size bed. An additional benefit of the air-conditioned enclosure is that it can be used as a second bedroom since the u-shaped seating area converts to a queen size bed. The large cockpit and forward Sunpad provide ample outdoor space. We also offer the options of our removable forward seating and / or a gigantic rear bench spanning the width of the entire cockpit if you would like to entertain an even larger number of passengers. The Gulfstream 52 was also chosen to appear on a TV show called Discovering Water with Flip Pallot!
In addition to the focus on comfort, the 52 remains true to our longstanding obsession with safety. The boat is built using our unsinkable construction techniques and was designed with wide passageways and high gunnel walls to allow safe and easy access to all areas of the boat. We have also incorporated many redundant systems as an added measure of protection.
Every one of our boats is built for a specific customer and they are HIGHLY customizable. For instance, the standard layout of the 52 has a door on each side of the glass enclosure but one customer ordered their boat with a single rear door instead of the two side doors. We can tailor the boat toward a fishing-oriented layout or more of a cruising configuration and we offer such options as custom hard tops, custom paint jobs, teak wood bow rails and teak cockpit surrounds, any interior finishes that you would like, etc.
The boat is 52 feet long, has a beam of 15 feet and a dry weight including motors of approximately 28,000 pounds. The fuel capacity is 1,000 gallons. The boat can be powered with three to five outboard motors and the top speed ranges from 50MPH with quad 350 horsepower motors up to 70MPH with quad Seven Marine 627 horsepower motors.
