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.
The meticulously maintained twin Ford Lehman naturally aspirated and
very economical diesel engines only have 2500hrs, and the additional
new bow thruster makes maneuvering this boat smooth and easy.

she has been boat house kept her entire life other than her recent
move to the marina in preparation for sale. As any viewer will see,
she has been meticulously maintained from day one and no finer example

down including chart plotters and radio, new radar which is also
linked with chart plotter, new bow thruster, new house and starting
batteries, new wiring in the engine room, new high output alternator

required to fully update this vessel and the previous owner maintained
her in virtually new condition.
The bright work looks stunning and also has custom made canvas to
protect it from the elements
This vessel will need nothing other than regular maintenance for
years to come – everything has been done!
