SEA HAWK has had only two owners in her 35 years. Her present owner purchased her in 1992 and being an engineer, he has made numerous improvements to her hull and fittings, and therefore her sailing performance (see Hull & Deck description above), bringing home numerous cups and silver under a PHRF handicap rule - Whalers Race, Round The Bay Race, Hurricane Cup & Edgartown Yacht Club Around The Island Race. One never thinks of a 44' Gulfstar Center Cockpit Sloop as being capable of winning PHRF races, but this is a testament to her owner's ability. SEA HAWK is quite obviously, well suited as a comfortable liveaboard as well, with an abundance of storage lockers, in three separate cabins and two heads with showers. For anyone who is looking for a combination of speed and livable space, SEA HAWK is worthy of your highest consideration. She is offered at a very attractive asking price for her size and equipment. Although she has been on the hard, covered, for the past 3 seasons, she has been looked after by her caring owner and can be easily and quickly launched.
