The Gulfstar 50 design has proven to be a stout, practical cruising yacht.  Grouse's classic overhangs and styling will turn heads in any harbor, while her sloop rig allows her sailplan to be easily handled by a crew of two. Her protected center cockpit provides shelter in rough water and a spacious location to relax with guests in a quiet anchorage.

Solid teak is used liberally throughout, with finely finished storage spaces and lockers with louvered doors. An excellent liveaboard, coastal or blue water cruiser.
