Broker's Comments

Starlight Express has had 2 owners since construction and has been in present ownership since 1989. She has been maintained in first class condition by a knowledgeable and competant yachtsman, and is presently laid up at his home. Rarely have I seen a better presented yacht for sale at this price. She has been used for club racing and medium distance offshore racing / cruising. Despite this she has a clean and comfortable interior, and would make a fine fast cruiser with a comprehensive wardrobe of high quality sails in good condition. Offered for sale complete with a 4 wheel close-coupled trailer that was custom made for her on delivery to Pembrokeshire in 1989. Launching and recovery has always been by crane therefore the trailer is in sound condition as it has never been immersed in salt water. Click "view more photos" for 38 internal/external shots of this truly beautiful yacht.
