Gulfstar sailboats are known for quality and performance. Habibi is no exception! An ideal fin keel with skeg rudder medium displacement cruising sailboat is well suited as a couple’s Mexico cruiser, a liveaboard, weekend family cruiser, or a boat on which to head South; an ideal compromise between a fast modern boat (uncomfortable in strong weather) and a heavier full-keel cruiser (slow and unenjoyable to sail). Habibi is a veteran of Pacific and Sea of Cortez cruising, featured in Lattitudes & Attitudes magazine after an extensive refit in 2000. The current owners have recently installed all new electronics, canvas and safety equipment.

She is ready to go again and realize the cruising dreams of her new owners. Check out her full inventory and begin your cruising right here in the heart of some of the worlds most renowned cruising grounds. Located in Puerto Escondido, Mexico, in the gateway to the Sea of Cortez and home to dozens of gorgeous anchorages, with white sandy beaches and crystal clear warm waters and tons of sea life. Let us, the experts in yacht ownership here in Mexico show you how easy it is to begin your cruising dreams today.
