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 an early example dating from the 1950's. She has the round stern and the deck fittings which are "left overs" from the 1930's.
The paintwork is all original, red above the waterline and varnish below. She has been sailed so there are a couple of paint chips most notably on the bow. There are some sailing marks on the bottom of the keel. However, overall the paintwork is in really good condition and the Planet transfers are perfect.
The deck is in good order with original varnish and fittings. There are a couple of marks in the varnish. The deck transfer is perfect.
The sails are original and in very good condition for their age. There is one small pinhole in the mainsail and a few stains. The cringles are original. All the spars, hooks and bowsies are original.
All large Stars are now very collectable especially this range as they are very popular with interior designers.
Consequently they are now very difficult to find especially in such great condition.
The stand is home made but is included in the sale if required.
