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 round stern of the late 1950's, early 60's and the paintwork is original, green above the waterline and varnish below. She appears to have been sailed as there is some paint loss on the keel and the end of the bowsprit has been flattened. However, in spite of this the overall condition is really good with just a few marks and scratches in the paintwork. 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 in perfect condition.
The sails are original and in very good condition with no holes or tears. They have a couple of water stains and a few mildew marks but otherwise they are almost as new. The mainsail stamp is perfect. All the hooks, spars and bowsies are original. Some of the rigging has been renewed.
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.
