Broker’s Comments

STARLIGHT has had four owners since her launch. Her original owner kept the boat in Palma and quickly decided he wanted a larger boat, the second owner kept the boat in San Remo for 8 years, impeccably maintained and always under cover. The third owner maintained the boat at Jamestown Boatyard, inside storage with the mast down.

These owners have continued the tradition, also maintaining her at Jamestown Boatyard, except of course for those offshore cruising periods, also inside stored with mast down. Continuous maintenance at the well-known Swan yard for the last 18 years with full service records.

STARLIGHT is also one of the few Nautor Swan 46 MKII versions available with the centerline queen aft, and two cabins fwd. The Swan 46 was the second most popular Swan ever built, the first being the Swan 38. They have been sailed around the world, raced, cruised, and thoroughly enjoyed by their owners. It is always special to have been sailing with your family and have the incredible memories that STARLIGHT’s family will never forget. She is ready for her next family to enjoy her. Still being used, and ready to go.

Owner’s Comments

We bought STARLIGHT in 2004 and she has been loved and cared for like a member of our family (her previous two owners we’re similarly obsessed, and when not being used, the boat has been stored under a cover in season and indoors off season).

At the time our children were 5, 6, and 8 – the perfect ages for extended cruising – old enough to follow directions and keep themselves from falling overboard yet young enough to adapt well to cruising life. Within months of the purchase, we had set out on a two-year bluewater adventure that would take us down the eastern Atlantic coast of the US, around the Caribbean and Mediterranean Seas, and across the Atlantic Ocean with our young family. We quickly learned to trust our sailboat through any condition, and the layout of the boat was perfect for us. STARLIGHT became our house, our transportation, our schoolroom, and our recreation.

From retracing the voyage of Odysseus, to reenacting the Battle of Trafalgar with water balloons and dozens of other cruising children, to sailing with hundreds of dolphins playing in our bow wake, we had an unforgettable family experience. Since returning home, we have spent summers living aboard STARLIGHT in Jamestown, RI and cruising the waters of New England.

Now empty nesters, we have had more time to devote to cruising, and over the past several years, we have invested in a number of upgrades including purchasing new North 3DI sails, repainting the mast and boom and replacing all the lines and halyards, upgrading the B and G electronics and radar, upgrades to rod rigging, gel batteries, and installing a new Sea Frost refrigeration system.
