Starlight 35 For Sale

UPDATE: With a new baby and a house move on the horizon this yacht has been reduced to £59,000.

Heavily updated in her previous and current ownerships, much of which was in anticipation of a big ocean crossing which did not take place, STARFIRE has benefited from plenty of recent expenditure. Her standing rigging is in date, her systems are well serviced and she benefits from brand new white topsides paint in 2015.

She represents a great opportunity to own one of these hugely popular ‘do it all’ fast cruising yachts, in the preferred ‘deep keel, no-teak decks’ configuration and with the benefit of the later mkII Rival Bowman build.

A particularly highly specified example, STARFIRE has been set up well for longer passages with inventory highlights including Hydrovane self-steering gear, wind generator, solar power and satellite phone.

Acclaimed by the yachting press as one of the prettiest boats afloat in her class, this popular and fast cruising yacht has now over 100 yacht afloat around the world. Designed by Stephen Jones, and voted the overall winner of the 1996 Yachting World ‘One of a Kind Rally’ and CHS ARC winner in 1994.

The Starlight 35 features a double moulded method of construction with built-in installation, a deep bilge and a choice of lead deep keel fin (as fitted to Starfire) or shallow draft wing keel. The mk2 version includes a more luxurious interior and a very full inventory.


“The Starlight 35 has clearly been conceived by people who understand the demands of a yacht, in particulars her accommodation and her operation in a seaway… At no point, even when hard pressed, did the Starlight attempt to gripe or show bad habits. In steep and awkward seas she surfed readily at up to 12 knots, always in good control”

Yachting Monthly

“Underwater, the boat is as innovative in shape as it is in construction… Edge and fiddle details is second to none… a fine advertisement for British boat building”

Yachting World

“There is little doubt that the designers of the Starlight 35 achieved their basic aim to create a yacht that combines the comfort of a traditional cruising yacht with the performance of a light displacement cruiser racer and the easy handling of a substantially smaller yacht.”
