Available for SaleAnother Chance44' 1980 Kong & Halvorsen 

The 44 was built in China on a solid fiberglass semi-displacement hull, with fairly high freeboard, hard chines, and a prop protecting full length keel....Its 3208 Caterpillar diesel motors will cruise at a very economical 5 GPH at 7 to 8 knots.

This is a very rare Trawler that has a "T&T HYDRAULIC LIFTING SWIM PLATFORM" This is a $30,000 optionally added item!

Showing much newer than her age... this Island Gypsy has been extensively updated and lovingly maintained over the course of her years. She represents an excellent value and opportunity for her next owner to take advantage of the great efforts (and expense) put forth by her current owner and phenomenal liveaboard cruiser. The Island Gypsy 44 Trawler is one of few models of her size that have been noted for making Trans-Atlantic crossings. They are very capable passage makers with notable features being 700 gallon fuel capacity, full prop protecting keel, high freeboard at the bow, three stateroom layout with centerline queen berth in aft master stateroom and spacious accommodations both above and below deck. See the full listing for more details, or call to set up a showing.
