Gypsea is a classic, head turning, Halvorsen Raised Pilothouse trawler built by Jiang Hua Shipyard She has two staterooms, two heads, a great flying bridge and lovely varnished teak interior, elegantly executed. She has all of the features checked off on the ideal boat checklist, appreciated by the experienced yachtsman.
And, a wine cellar? Really? YES.
GYPSEA attracts attention wherever she goes. Her beautiful hull lines are striking and handsome, functional and quite ship like. Many of the designs of the present were drawn from her original profile, making her the original in a sea of copy cats.
Her wonderful interior layout has great flow and easy access. Her interior stairway allows older sailors and their dogs, or parents for that matter, to access to the flying bridge, without climbing ladders. There is also a ladder access to the flying bridge from the cockpit.
She has a washer dryer, newer navigation equipment, updates to her systems, and best of all, her engineer owner has gone thru the boat stem to stern, ironing out some of the details plaguing many other yachts.
She has had two substantial re-conditioning's, each focused on different systems and components. In 2013, she had a full paint job, both the hull and decks and cabin house. Her striking blue topsides, combined with shiny white deck paint makes for a compelling combination for any boater.
In 2015, many systems were re-evaluated, replaced. Note inventory dates. Some updates are being performed September 2017.
With Twin CAT 3208 power, new coolers, a newer generator, updated electronics and so much more on the list, this great trawler design has comfort, economy, style, function, and more. Further, she is a striking yacht that turns heads. Oh, right, of course we already said that.
A very compelling yacht with so very much advantage for the cruiser seeking a great yacht with lots of comfort and convenience, security and elegance.
And, like we said above, she has a Wine Cellar. This is important.
This is a limited offering with compelling value in today's market. Once she is gone, there are few others that compare.

With a large flying bridge, GYPSEA can entertain most of your friends - at least those worth inviting, Just as compelling is the how to part of getting to the bridge. With her outstanding, purposefully designed access from one level to another, those with weakening knees, or other digits for that matter, may easily access between the lower and upper levels of the yacht. This can be the difference between happiness and the evil alternative, misery. GYPSEA is designed for happiness and ease, just in case I was not clear. Going from Pilothouse to Flying bridge is via stairs.

GYPSEA is one of the best laid out trawlers built in her time. Her custom joinery work gives the feeling of a real nautical home and her numerous convenient features add up to make for a superb liveaboard cruising vessel. Her storage is epic, she has all the possible conveniences one could or would want in a yacht, and better than all of that, her owners have added and refined many of her systems, for their liking, augmenting the safety, luxury features important to us all.
There are so many great aspects to this yacht that certainly the cliche, must be seen, must be used to get folks here to see her.
Doors and layout are wonderful for getting to the cockpit quickly.
Well done engine room with great lighting.
Hull is solid FRP with stringers and floor system. Deck is also solid FRP with plywood coring, teak deck overlay in cockpit, weather decks and helm areas of flying bridge.
