Gulf 29's are classic pilothouse sloops with excellent sailing manners. They draw
attention wherever they go! I have had mine for eight years here in the Portland, Orgeon
area. The pilothouse is a great choice here in the Pacific Northwest, both summer and
winter. With both inside and outside steering stations, we have all-weather comfort. (This
was an optional feature, though most boats came with it.) We also like the airiness and
the full around view from the inside.
Our Gulf has a fin keel with spade rudder. Waterline length is 25.3 feet with 7700 lbs
displacement, with 3200 ballast on 5.1 feet draft. Beam is 9.33 feet and sail area is 375
sq.ft. Most boats had the M-18 Universal diesel engine (15 hp) although some early models
had smaller M-15 (11 hp)and some later models had larger M-25 (21 hp).
I have added an oversized 3-bladed prop (probably a little too big) but wish I had more
horsepower when pushing into head seas and wind. I have about 1000 hours on the engine
with no repairs. Heavy weather work will shakeup the fuel and clog the injectors, so be
sure to drain the sediment out of the tank before any offshore adventures. This is from
the voice of experience!
My boat had been bulletproof. I have been across the Columbia River bar and up the coast
to the San Juans and down to Olympia several times. I have grounded (Columbia River!!) and
hit logs (several times, ouch!)without any major damage. (This is not recommended!)
The boat sails like a sailboat, not a motorsailer, I often sail with my roller genny only,
being lazy. I now tend to reef the main early so I dont work too hard. The boat is on the
light side with plenty of sail, so it can be fast. I use my spinnaker less and less,
because the 155% genny is just about as fast. Heavy air sailing is our thrill and we
usually use the 110 jib and reef or double-reef the main. The boat has enough rudder, even
in heavy conditions, to keep on track. As you can read, I am sold on Gulfs! I think the
29' was the best of the three (27', 29', 32') I wish they came with an aft cabin and I
have customized the interior a lot for better use. If you are interested, I can share my
ideas and you can see what you think. I have a lot of info on Gulf from Capital Yachts and
right now they are a great buy on the market.
Smaller pilothouse sailboats are hard to find and not a lot of Gulfs were made. The boats
hold up well over time and were solidly built. What other pilothouse can you even find in
this size and at these prices? These are excellent all weather coastal cruisers, speedy
under sail and comfortable for small family or couple.
