The Comet is the largest of the post WWII BR range of Star Production pond yachts.
Due to their vibrant colours the BR's are probably the most decorative and therefore the most collectable of all the Star yachts. They are very popular with interior designers.
This particular yacht has the square transom of the 1970's and 80's.
The paintwork is original, green above the waterline and varnish below. She has been sailed so there is some paint loss on the keel and and some marks on the hull. There is an area on the starboard side which has been touched up.
However, in spite of this, the overall condition is really good. The Comet transfers are perfect.
The deck has all its original brass fittings and has its varnish finish is unmarked. The deck transfer is original and has one small mark.
The sails are original and in good condition with no holes or tears. They have a couple of water stains and a few mildew marks and foxing. The mainsail stamp is present and correct. All the hooks, spars and bowsies are original.
All large Stars are now very collectable, especially this range, and the Comet was one of the most expensive to buy when new. Consequently they are now very difficult to find especially in good condition.
She also benefits from having her original stand which is included in the sale.
