Great Long Range Cruiser

Bayview Yachts Sales is pleased to present "Cortan Ship", an Island Gypsy 44 Flush Aft Deck, which is a heavily built long range cruiser with a traditional trawler profile.

The 44's were built on a solid fiberglass semi-displacement hull with high free board, hard chines, and a prop-protection gull length keel.

The three-cabin floor plan includes an aft full beam, spacious, teak-filled master stateroom with a walk around queen bed and an ensuite head with full shower. Forward there are two staterooms, one v-berth and one single – with a second full head with full shower. The main and very spacious salon has a settee that converts to a double bed, ample seating room, lower helm, and a galley with full-size fridge and new 3 burner propane stove. The command bridge has another settee and ample seating for all your cruising guests.
