Back in the water in St. Thomas.
Gypsy Moon is our well-loved Chris Craft Caribbean 35.
This Sparkman & Stephens designed ketch rigged motor sailor is a fantastic blend of Taiwanese fiberglass and joinery blended with Michigan mechanicals and rigging. That's right, all 100 of these boats were laid up in Taiwan where the heaviest fiberglass hulls come from. With the bulkheads and cabinet frames of the highest quality teak in place they were shipped to Holland Michigan to be powered, rigged and trimmed out. The result is an extremely serviceable, very standardized high quality classic.
In the last decade, a couple decided to live aboard and day charter in the BVI. They repowered with a new 3 cylinder Yanmar now at 450 hours. They bought all new sails and upgraded rigging and refrigeration as necessary, and we have receipts for all of it. When the couple fell sick, Gypsy Moon was neglected for several years, yet remained viable with almost no attention.
We purchased her in 2016 and have redone every system on the boat. As a degreed and OCD engineer who is a working master captain, every detail and trinket to live aboard and cruise is in place and working without issue. VHF, chart plotter, auto pilot, new stereo, flat screen TV etc. Anything that is not complete is on a punch list so you can prioritize your maintenance as you see fit. Extensive shade canvas, port light visors and fans keep her dry and comfortable in any weather. Excellent ground tackle, line, fenders, snorkel gear, specialty tools all go with. Two new heads, new sanitation hoses, functioning serviced sea cocks, double clamped hoses and redundant bilge pumps wired directly to the new in 2018 batteries. Newer gimbaled stove, nice Magma grill, microwave all in place.
Fuel and water full. All USCG documentation and VI registration current.
Simply bring cash and move on, you are set and comfortable anywhere.
Price is not negotiable. If you want turn-key comfort and reliability in an amazingly accommodating mid-sized vessel, this is your best value anywhere.
