SOLD Summer 2021 – 1997 Gozzard 31 Hull #16 “Aldebaran”

Aldebaran is a very well maintained Gozzard 31 including monthy washing and bottom cleaning. She has all the features of the semi-custom Gozzard line as well as many extras and is ready to sail.


Aldebaran has the innovative Gozzard “open” layout. The interior is American cherry with white overhead and cabin trunk panels with a solid teak and bass wood cabin sole.

Saloon from the Entry

The convertible main saloon forward offers 2 single settee / berths, port and starboard, which can be swung together to form a center line double bed. The upholstery is a very durable blue Ultrasuede.

  • Forward of this is a large cedar lined hanging locker. There is a centerline coffee table, which converts to a full dining table with the addition of a separate table top, stored in the vast storage area behind the port settee. The feeling one gets in the salon area of this vessel is one of a much larger yacht then 31 feet.
  • Midship to starboard is a full-size pantry/ storage closet. Next aft to starboard is the dedicated navigation station with a huge chart table with locking hinged top, and plenty of storage for charts, a comfortable nav seat with more storage below, hinged instrument panel for easy access.
  • Across from the nav station, midship port side, is the galley with lots of storage space.
  • Aft to port is the head with vanity and sink, shower, and storage. The countertop is Corian with a stainless steel sink.
  • Aft to starboard is the owner’s stateroom with a queen berth, hanging locker, shelf and drawer with storage under the bunk and access to engine and prop shaft.
  • Companionway has full, built-in screen enclosure. Removable companionway stairs make easy access to engine.


The innovative galley provides plenty of storage and Corian countertops with tile backsplash and deep SS sink.
