Stardust is a fast cruising racer with an above average level of equipment - which is all in good working order. She has been extensively cruised from the Med to the West coast of Scotland and in recent years has benefitted from numerous upgrades to also make her a very competitive race boat - including Tack tick wireless instrumentation and matching chart plotters both in the cockpit and at the chart table a cascading backstay adjuster, a windward sheeting system with fine tune control on the mainsheet and a new ‘easy to use’ stack pack fitted this year. We have also installed AIS/Wi-fi late last year.
This makes Stardust a very good option for either the cruiser or the racer - or maybe you are like us and like to do a bit of both..
She is a well kept boat with an extensive log cataloguing all the upgrades, service history, repairs etc.
It is keenly priced to sell as the current owners have now downsized and want to find a new home for Stardust.
The boat is currently on an excellent trailer at EDYC on Strangford Lough but assistance with delivery could be considered.
