Owner comments
Estrela (Portuguese for ‘Star’ – the first owner has a second home on the Algave) has been lovingly cared for by her 2 owners, maintained regardless of cost & has many upgrades & replacements.
She has the white hull without teak decks – undoubtedly the best combination for longevity.
The exterior is in excellent condition, through regular cleaning, polishing plus she has always been kept in a well sheltered marina, her freshness boosted in 2018 by the full reglaze (frames as well as lenses). No accidents or repairs
The interior woodwork (Cherry – also the best choice) is fresh as there has always been full blackout curtains and blinds drawn & the upholstery is also in remarkably good condition.
Recent upgrades include an all over cockpit cover (2017) and a chart plotter at the helm station (Raymarine ES75 at helm station (2018)).
