Broker's Comments

The Starfish 8 is a boat that is much admired for her sea keeping abilities. This version has been customised to maximise on accommodation making her ideal for cruising, fishing or drinks in the cockpit.

She has two helming positions and is fitted with a 25hp Evinrude outboard as well as her 35hp Thornycroft inboard, which has been overhauled with only 50 hours use.

The accommodation has ample room around the cabin table, which drops down to form a large double berth or it can be left as 2 single berths. There is good galley space to starboard with the heads opposite. The wheel house is large for a boat of this size, leading out to the cockpit which has plenty of space for fishing and socialising.

The owner has spent a lot of time and money on this boat. She has had a new toilet fitted, new batteries installed, outboard and inboard engines serviced and has only just been relaunched after being polished and anti-fouled.
This boat is extremely well presented and is pretty enough to win over the ladies.

These boat details are subject to contract.
