Broker's Comments

This is a really lovely example of a Sunstar 32 Catamaran that has been really well looked after by the present owners. There have been 3 owners in total.

A great, safe and spacious family boat and the Aerorig is pretty easy to use once you get the hang of it and the the owner says that the boat is very safe in big winds. I have attached plenty of videos to try and capture how the rig works but the owner will happily take out the new owner and familiarise them with the boat and Aerorig. The boat is afloat in Barrow in the Summer and winters every year in Glasson and every two years comes out at Glasson Basin Marina and was last out in 2021.
