Opportunity to own a vessel with a true racer/cruiser pedigree.

The Hughes Northstar was built by Hughes Boatworks in Canada and exibits the lines of a traditional yawl. This boat originally sailed on the west coast has competed internationally in offshore races.

Returned to her roots, the boat has been under the current skipper for over 30 years and has been continously improved and cared for. The centre cockpit is large and secure, decks are easly travelled for sail handling or just relaxing. This boat turns heads as it ghosts past most other sailboats. Beautiful joinerwork below in a spacious saloon with oiled teak, folding table, a large galley, forward cabin and aft cabin each with head. A crew of 8 is easily accommodated.

Those sailors who appreciate a true sailing yacht should view this vessel.
