Broker Notes
Maggie May is one of the best of the Starlight 39s ever built and in terms of specification and level of equipment we consider that she rates with the top three Starlight 39s we have ever sold through our brokerage.

The previous owners purchased through Lucas Yachting in 2003 and have bestowed loving care and attention on this yacht with a high level of maintenance and generous provision of new equipment.

From new, Maggie May has had the advantage of careful cruising and pride of ownership throughout her charmed life and is a credit also to her previous owners.

Fitted out with a comprehensive spec for extended cruising and with the reassurance of the Starlight 39 design and build quality, we have complete confidence in presenting Maggie May as the best you can buy!

Present owners sadly are now having to sell after only twelve months of ownership - limited cruising during 2019, but sufficient to appreciate the huge potential of this rather special Starlight 39.
