About this Starlight 35 MK II


Remarks :

This Starlight 35, built by Rival Bowman in 1998, not Sadler,  is famous for being solid and sturdy in heavy seas due to its impressive displacement design along with the long bow overhang and a noticeable sheer rising from a low freeboard aft to high bows. This particular yacht has benefited from some impressive upgrades and the current owners have invested time and money to keep her comfortable and safe.

Some highlights are Hydrovane self steering, windgen, holding tank, Navigational equipment and electric anchor windlass. Please read details for more information
