Like many desirable west coast trawlers, the Gulf Commander was designed by Ed Monk Jr. for cruising on the west coast in comfort and safety. Rumour has it that only 3 of the aft cabin 42’s were ever built. They are considered one of the most desirable Gulf Commanders for a couple cruising the northwest because of their thoughtful, spacious layout, combined with a heavy displacement hull making adverse conditions more pleasant for everyone on board.
The Crystal Sands has a solid fiberglass hull, a heavy, full keel and dependable Perkins twin diesel engines for efficient cruising. At home anywhere in the Pacific Northwest, this two-cabin cruiser is in very good shape for her age. Cruising around the Gulf Islands, Desolation Sound or headed to Alaska, the Gulf Commander is purpose-built for the environment. The layout is functional with a large aft cabin and forward bunks, both with separate heads for great separation and privacy.
The moorage is assumable with management approval at the Fairwinds Marina in Schooner Cove.
