GITANA was designed by Ray Hunt, built by Wilbur Yachts in Maine and commissioned in 1989. The attention to detail from Wilbur Yachts, in building this vessel, was extensive with many custom features. GITANA offers three gorgeous staterooms, full beam salon, spacious galley and a large pilot house. All new electronics 2020. She had been maintained to the highest standards and has been constantly upgraded over the years, showing much newer than her age! She must be seen to be appreciated.
