This delightful and very decorative yacht was sold by Star in the 1930's as Super Bermuda "Hollow" pond yacht. She is 18 inches long so would have been marketed as a Pacific star.

 

We have not seen a blue painted hull before so must assume she has been repainted. However, the paintwork has been overvarnished which was normally done prior to a yacht being sailed. This suggests that if she has been painted it was done when she was new or shortly afterwards.

 

The hull is in good condition with just a few paint chips and some marks on the bow. The deck has its original varnish and all the deck fittings are original. The original brass deck plaque is also present but does have a little damage.

The original sails are quite rare as they have a red stripe in the material. They are in remarkable condition for their age with no rips or tears and just a few stains. The spars, hooks and bowsies are all original.

 

This is a very attactive yacht form the hayday of Star Productions.

 

The stand is not original but is included in the sale if required.
