This particular 46 was built by Bowman for the present owner in 2002, being the third boat of the series. Always maintained by the owner in impeccable condition, with many upgrades, regular maintenance and fastidious care and attention. This yacht has provided for this very experienced owner extraordinary sea-going capability and comfortable fast cruising – many times two-handed.
Fitted with cutter rig, powerful fully-battened main and yankee high-cut jib and with the benefit of Stephen Jones design. This Starlight 46 provides impressively effective windward performance with unusually high level of stiffness and reassuring directional stability down-wind in waves. Power winch for the mainsail halyard and efficient sail-handling all contribute towards enjoyable short-handed sailing.
Interior layout is designed for life afloat, with really comfortable saloon, efficient galley and navigation area, well-equipped for serious voyaging. Portside aft cabin is set up as affective workshop area, with generator for domestic power - many back-up systems for fuel supply and filtering, bilge pumps and battery capacity.
Recently maintained and all systems checked through by Mike Lucas Yachting, we are now entrusted with finding a new owner for this very special yacht.
Asking price now significantly reduced, since Vendor wishes to proceed with his new yacht.
