Lyric is a cruising ready sailboat that you can have confidence in. She is a well built model of 1979 when more of everything and attention to detail was the standard. She has been cruising on and off with the current owners for 7 years and is a splendid yacht of substance. Lyric is suitable for the seasonable cruiser. Stout and stable you can rest well on the hook in any weather or at sea with 4 to 5 she handles gracefully. However with all her enhancements and Gulfstar lineage, she is a vessel to comfortably satisfy the passion for those who wish to live aboard, as the owners have from time to time over the past 7 years. She is a sail boat for that passionate sailor who wants comfort.
