Remarks

Described as an incredible boat to sail, the International Star Class (www.starclass.org) is one of the premier one-design racing keel boat classes in the world and celebrated it's 100th birthday in 2011. Having been an Olympic class since 1932, the class boosts over 7,500 yachts and fleets in 38 countries. This example was built by Uffa Fox for the 1948 Olympics and was crewed by Norfolk sailors! She spent much of her sailing life on Wroxham Broad, and was later retired to barn storage. She was then given a new lease of life in 2007 when the current owner converted her into a gaff rigged half decker, and once again she cruised the Norfolk Broads. Sensible offers will be considered.
