Power Boat Guide says..."The company's most
popular boat from 1978 unti a factory fire destroyed the molds in
1996, the Island Gypsy 44 Flush Aft Deck is a heavily built, long
range cruiser with a traditional trawler style profile and an unusual
galley up interior. The 44 was built in China on a solid fibreglass
semi- displacement hull, with fairly high freeboard, hard chines, and
a prop protecting full length keel..... Twin Lehman diesels cruise at
Boat has rare factory aft deck hardtop, with tender storage with
custom davits and electric crane, custom radar arch. Many upgrades,
new bridge cover with sewn in solar panels.
This would be an ideal choice as a liveaboard or for long
distance coastal cruising.
