The Gulfstar 49 Motoryacht is quite possibly the best Liveaboard motoryacht under 50’ ever designed! Take it from this liveaboard yachtsman of over 30years-this yacht has it all-great looks, many spacious living spaces, great natural light and she’s very economical to cruise and maintain. Highlights of this spacious motoryacht include 3 generous staterooms, 3 heads, a spacious light filled upper salon/aft deck with fabulous views and a huge lower salon/country kitchen. Additionally she features an aft line handling deck for those early morning moments of Java and the Zen of life lived on the water. Other outstanding features include a walk-in engine room, generous pantry/laundry center area and a well-positioned bridge/helm which doubles as yet another 4 season retreat to just hang out and watch the world float by. Galileo has been well cared for and loved and is only being sold due to the owners moving on to other adventures in life. If you’ve lived aboard and want to upgrade or simply want to adopt the lifestyle for the first time, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better liveaboard/cruiser than Galileo.
