A Ray Hunt yachts Masterpiece
Custom Ray Hunt Yachts designed STARLIGHT is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. She provides a versatile platform for family enjoyment, entertaining, or serious long-range cruising. This classic motor yacht combines the heritage and design of the legendary Raymond Hunt with custom hand-built construction and exacting specifications. She was designed to be able to sprint at a high speed (23 knots) while providing a more economical slower speed (12-16 knots) for extended range voyaging. Her current owner has cruised STARLIGHT regularly between Maine and the Bahamas, and she has proven herself to be both elegant and reliable. She is extremely comfortable for a family to live aboard for extended trips, or to entertain in classic style. Her walk-around decks, unobstructed views, all-weather main deck aft lounge, spectacular flybridge, and lovely AwlGrip dark green hull make her truly one of a kind.
STARLIGHT was launched in 2003. Her Deep-V hull design came from the legendary firm C. Raymond Hunt Yachts, one of the most famous and innovative of all classic yacht designers. The hull was built by the team at Goetz Custom Technologies using the latest in composite construction technology developed by Eric Goetz for several America’s Cup boats of similar vintage to deliver a combination of high strength and low weight, allowing STARLIGHT to deliver high speed or low fuel consumption and extended range. The yacht’s systems were installed at Derecktor Shipyard to the highest specifications. Final integration and the rich wood interior were completed at Palmer-Johnson. STARLIGHT has had only two owners, both of whom were highly experienced yachtsmen.
