  • Boat Summary
  • Full Details


"MARILYN" is a beautiful example of this famous Lazzara design. She is the last Sailmaster 62- the flagship of their line- built by Gulfstar between 1982 and 1985.

With her modern underbody and 52' waterline she is fast and comfortable. The fully encapsulated modified fin keel and full skeg hung rudder is the right combination for maximum performance and strength. She will easily do 200+ miles a day on passages with comfort and will reach over 10 knots on many an occasion. Speeds of 8.5 to 9.5 knots are the norm for Marilyn.

Marilyn is rigged with hydraulically operated in-mast furling and roller furling headsail. She is easy to handle with only two and is routinely single handed by her owner. Her huge cockpit will easily accommodate large groups, whether under sail or at anchor enjoying sundowners. Her deck has plenty of room to move around and handle lines or to just enjoy the water. With her four double cabins three heads and massive main saloon it is a pleasure to have full crew on board. The raised main saloon is open to the galley. This design is excellent for entertaining larger groups and is something not normally found on boats of this era and in this price range. "We have had up to 30 people on board for day sails and Marilyn accommodated everyone with ease", reports the owner.

Marilyn was purchased by her current owner in 2003. She then underwent a major upgrade, with much of her interior replaced. The main saloon and galley were gutted and replaced with high quality joiner work and appliances. The entire cabin sole was replaced with teak and holly and a new overhead was installed throughout. All of the systems and wiring were renewed and there are wire conduits throughout the vessel. The mast and standing rigging were replaced as well as the main sail. Marilyn is a clean boat and she is fully commissioned at this time.

Marilyn is a good choice and certainly worthy of your inspection if you are looking for a fast, comfortable cruising boat or a spacious home on the water. She has been home to her current owner and taken him cruising from Martha’s Vineyard and throughout the Caribbean for the last twelve years. She will outperform the typical 45' to 55' cruising boat in the same price range, while boasting accommodations that are on boats with a much higher price point. Marilyn is a special boat, fun to sail and to just be a part of.

Forward VIP guest stateroom: Just aft of the chain locker access, there is a large V-berth. Drawer storage is located beneath the berth, while on either side are nightstands with louvered door lockers above and below the fiddled shelf space. There is a pair of full height hanging lockers on the starboard side of the cabin. Ash staving lines the hullsides and ventilation to this space is provided by a large overhead hatch and two opening portholes.

Forward guest stateroom:Continuing aft, there is a guest stateroom located on port. There are upper and lower berths, hanging and regular locker storage and drawer storage beneath the lower berth.

Forward guest head: Across from the forward guest stateroom and on starboard is the forward head. As you enter, the head is to your left and the sink is to your right. There is a large mirrored medicine cabinet above the sink and a signature Gulfstar teak framed oval mirror to the right of the countertop. There is a separate bar mounted shower wand with a single lever mixer located on the wall next to the head.

Galley: Aft of these spaces is the galley, which uses the full beam of the boat. The main working area of the galley is a large U-shaped space on port. The sinks face aft and are oriented towards centerline. Beneath that countertop are three cabinets and a drawer. The four burner stove is along the hull side and has sliding door storage immediately above the countertop and then two double door cabinets above that. The next counter top wraps around from the stove and along the forward bulkhead. Overhead is a built in stainless steel microwave that is framed by two more cabinets. Below the counter on this section is a lazy Susan cabinet in the corner by the stove, two more drawers and a double door cabinet. On the starboard side you will find a huge counter space, with two top loading ice box lids. At the right end is a custom toaster nook. Beneath the counter are an upright refrigeration/freezer and a locker at the forward end. Above the countertop are two more double door cabinets.

Saloon: Moving up a step from the galley you continue into the saloon. This is truly a sumptuous space, with ash staving lining the overhead and hullsides and large windows providing a wonderfully panoramic view of your surroundings. On the starboard side there is a deep settee, with storage behind and beneath it and a shelf above. A large radiused end dry bar is located at the forward end of the settee. On port is a wrap-around L shaped settee surrounding a gorgeous teak folding table. There is storage beneath and behind the settee and a large shelf behind it. Aft of the settee is a deep countertop with a louvered double-door locker beneath it and a shallower louvered double door locker above it. At the forward end of the settee a half height bulkhead divides the settee from the galley and has a fiddled teak counter on top of the bulkhead. This arrangement allows people in the galley to be part of what is going on in the saloon and makes the entire space feel quite expansive and airy.

Nav station: The nav station is located on starboard aft of the settee and at the base of the companionway. The electrical panel is located here. The black laminate chart table top has a good bit of storage inside and locker storage beneath it. To the right of the upholstered swivel seat is a stack of drawers; electronics are mounted on an instrument cabinet above the desk space.  

Amidships guest stateroom: Aft of the main salon and down two steps is a corridor leading aft to the master stateroom. Off that corridor is another guest cabin on starboard, with a large double berth, drawer storage beneath it and a hanging locker.

Aft guest head: Located on port across from the amidships guest stateroom is another head. The separate shower st

Hull and Deck

The Gulfstar Sailmaster 62 is a boat known for its strength. The deck and hull are hand laid fiberglass. The deck composition is unusual, in that it is a laminated layup of three layers of fiberglass about 1/4" thick, sandwiching two layers of 1/2" balsa core material between them, giving the deck a solid construction thickness of 1 3/4" thick! The hull & deck are thru-bolted with 3/8" bolts on 4" centers. There are 3/4" structural bulkheads throughout the vessel. The ballast is lead and is internal, so no separation of keel and hull to worry about in the event of a grounding. The rudder is skeg hung and has a 4" diameter solid stainless steel shaft.

The hull was refinished in 2004 using Awl-Craft 2000 Off White; the boot stripe was done in Flag Blue. The deck was repainted in 2012 in the same Awl-Craft 2000 Off White; the non-skid was done with a coarse non-skid additive.

The binnacle was completely rebuilt in 2012, with a fresh coat of Awlgrip, all new instruments, instrument panel and compass, the steering system was overhauled and upgraded and a huge custom cockpit table was designed and fitted into place, with a custom cover to protect it.
