In the late 1920's and 1930's Star Productions produced a range of sailing Fishing Smacks.
They appear not to have been made in large numbers as they are amongst the rarest of models produced in Birkenhead.
This particular yacht, whilst it is completely original, is in need of some attention. She could just be cleaned and used for display or she could be fully restored. It really is for the new owner to decide.
The hull is in good order but would benefit from revarnishing. The deck also is very patchy but does have all original fittings including an original brass badge.
It is very rare to find a fishing smack with all its original sails including the topsail. However, they are in poor condition and it may be that they are used as templates for a new suit. All the spars are original but again are in need of revarnishing. The rudder and tiller are also original.
Please have a good look at the photos as they give a good indication of the yachts condition. If you require further photos please do not hesitate to ask.
The stands are not as old as the yacht but are included in the sale if required.
This is a rare opportunity for the Star collector.
