Starlight39, high bridge deck version, 2 double cabins, 2 heads compartments, 2 full size settees in saloon.
Some work required, just like every other boat in the world. The bottom needs a good clean, ideally a new coat of antifouling, then she can be put into service immediately.
Due to work and other constraints Celestine has not been actively used for over 2 years.
Currently, circumstances dictate that she must be sold without too much delay. All sensible offers will be considered.
As part of a deal we are able to offer:
- delivery to a new location by a professional skipper (the current owner)
- professional brokerage conveyancing to handle funds and contracts if desired.
The Starlight brand created by Sadler Yachts in the early 90's started with the 39 of which 42 were built. Celestine is #30. The standard bridge deck is high to create a passage way from the aft double cabin ensuite to the aft heads. This also creates excellent protection to the cabin by preventing any big seas entering the cockpit from going down below. Some later versions had a lower bridge deck with no heads access.
Celestine also benefits from a small additional berth in the saloon, suitable for a child, or simply for storage. The one aft cabin to starboard, comfortable for 2 including lee cloth as a separator if required, means the port side provides a large cockpit locker. This allows easy access to systems such as Webasto heater, fresh water pump, 230v battery charger, and fuel tanks. It can also accommodate all required fenders and mooring lines.
The options of fin or wing keel were both mounted to a keel stub on the hull in the same way. The stub is hollow and approximately 50cms deep from inside the cabin with full access to the keel bolts. The bilge was deep cleaned in May 2020. The wing keel was a masterpiece of design by Stephen Jones, intended to restrict leeway going to windward, and also providing stability going downwind.
In a Yachting Monthly Used boat review in 2012, Dick Durham reported that the Starlight 39 was the best second hand yacht of her size that he had sailed.
There is a very active Starlight and Sadler Owners association, which provides excellent advice, technical support and enjoyable social events, well worth the small membership fee.
