NEW ARRIVAL - Photos to follow w/c 24 February 2020
Recently refurbished by Rustler, Swashbuckle is an excellent example of a well maintained and carefully sailed Starlight 35 and powered by the reliable Volvo MD2030.
This Starlight was built by Bowman Yachts in 1997 to Stephen Jones design with deep fin lead keel and to exacting standards as set by Bowman, to the usual structural quality with attractive interior teak finish - hull bottom professionally stripped back to gelcoat and Gelshield epoxy applied.
Regular maintenance has been professional, electronics are well selected being Raymarine and B&G, recent sails are by Quantum (2011), standing rig replaced 2011 and deck re-caulked by Rustler (2016).
The Starlight 35 is widely acclaimed for its grace, sea-keeping qualities and ability to make fast and comfortable passages.
We are impressed by the overall condition and build quality of the Starlight 35, now available at a particularly competitive asking price because the owner is now planning for his next boat move.
Call Mike for further detail.
