A well-maintained 80s vintage Gulfstar is widely considered to be among the best values in a cruising sailboat.  Another Adventure is a perfect example. She is beautifully maintained, well equipped, nice looking, a good performer, has a solid fiberglass hull, with spacious & comfortable accommodations.  You will be hard pressed to find a more capable cruising boat in this condition and size, at this price level.

Another Adventure has enjoyed exceptional care by experienced owners. She has been a New England boat for many years where she is tucked away under cover each Winter.  Never chartered, no history of blisters, constantly pampered and updated. In the words of a recent insurance survey... "This survey concludes that this vessel has been very well maintained and is in exceptionally good condition overall..."

Some of her recent updates include:

New standing rigging
New canvas w/ full enclosure
Updated electronics
New gearbox
New refrigeration
New SS opening ports
New Barrier Paint applied to bottom
Bilges cleaned & painted
and more.
