The Planet is one 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.
This particular yacht is a late example dating from the 1980's.
The colour scheme of red and white below the waterline is original. However, whilst the red paintwork is original, below the waterline she has been repainted. The Planet transfers are perfect.
On the topsides there are some marks, most notably on the starboard side. There is also some paint loss on the ballast, most likely from sailing.
The deck has original varnish and fittings. The deck is in good order with a few marks. The deck transfer is perfect. There appears at some point, to have been some damage on the starboard deck edge amidships. Rather than being repaired the deck edge has been skimmed.
The sails are original and in really good condition for their age. There are no holes or tears but the sails, which were originally yellow, have faded.
The spars, hooks and bowsies are all original but the rigging has been renewed.
All large Stars are now very collectable and this particular yacht is offered at a price commensurate with the condition.
The stand is not as old as the yacht but is included in the sale if required.
