"Neverland" is a true classic. This 1981 Gulfstar Sailmaster is a gorgeous example of what is possible when a distinguished design is meticulously maintained and invested in.
The most noticeable feature of the Gulfstar 39 Sailmaster’s distinguished profile is its raised saloon. The boat’s bow is sharp, the transom almost plumb, and its sheer very flat. Overall, the lines are clean and sleek. The interior is sometimes referred to as a single-stateroom design or a galley-forward design. Both descriptions are accurate and somewhat unusual for a beamy 39-footer.
Construction of the Gulfstar 39 Sailmaster is strong and of high quality. The deck and hull are fiberglass and polyester laminates. The deck and topsides are cored with end-grain balsa, adding stiffness while reducing weight. Below the waterline, the hull is solid fiberglass. On deck, the non-skid is molded-in, and all exterior wood—including eyebrows, handrails, toerails, companionway doors, and cockpit coaming tops—are solid teak.
The interior features ornate and detailed woodwork. Gulfstar enjoyed several patented woodworking processes, which allowed for a cost effective and beautiful method of joinery which rivaled the most expensive yachts of her day.
