Currently located in Poulsbo, Washington (West of Seattle), ‘Gypsy Wind’ is a proven bluewater sailboat.

She has taken us from Seattle to Australia and back, handles rough water very well and loves smooth water.

She is a comfortable liveaboard boat. Unfortunately it is time for us to move on from sailing.

Highlights:

‘Gypsy Wind’ has an enclosed cockpit with roll up side curtains and a hard dodger which makes it a great all round cruising boat.

The Raymarine chart plotter and auto pilot were updated 2 years ago.

There are 3 solar panels, a wind generator and a watermaker for self sufficiency.

The galley is well set up for cooking undersail as well as at anchor, easily seats 6 for dinner at the fold out table, or more for conversation with the table folded up against the bulkhead.

The main cabin has a Pullman berth, the crew quarters are tucked away on the starboard side with the navigation station on the port side.

There's additional sleeping accommodation in the main salon with a pull-out double and a comfortable settee with a lee cloth.

Two heads, one with separate shower, the other with a handheld shower. Lots of storage. This cutter rigged sailboat is ready for cruising, locally or offshore.
