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.
On this particular yacht the paintwork is all original, green above the waterline and varnish below. She does not appear to have ever been sailed. Consequently the condition of the hull is basically as it was when it left the factory and the bow and deck transfers are perfect.
The deck has all its original fittings and has its original varnish finish which is unmarked.
The sails are original and in really good order with no holes or tears. The sails may have faded slightly and they do have a few water stains but otherwise they are as new. The mainsail stamp is perfect. 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 this condition.
She also benifits from having her original stand which is included in the sale.
There is an area of damage on the rear of the stand.
