Sea Lark
44' Island Gypsy 44 Flush Aft Deck 1982

$ 119,000

What may be the most practical and ergonomically functional layouts ever designed for a cruising boat this size, the Island Gypsy 44 has a well-deserved following. With three staterooms, two heads, galley up, upper and lower helm stations, engine room access from a door in the middle stateroom and separate showers fore and aft. I don’t know what else you could ask for in a 44’ yacht. Incredible amounts of storage in the full beam master stateroom with a centerline queen bed, this is a real cruising boat for long term travel and living aboard. "Sea Lark" is in excellent mechanical condition with low hours on the Lehman 120 HP main engines and a (relatively) new 9 KW Kohler generator, inverter and upgrades to many, many systems. Great boat for those who wish to travel "off the beaten paths"!
