Listing Detail Tabs

Lovely condition wooden starling. Amazing Grace was built for former junior laser radial champion Grace Nixon and has a laser turbo system rather than the traditional starling setup. The black hull is 2 pot Durepox.

We bought 2 years ago and have made some improvements. The old traveller has been replaced with a rope system which the Mackay starlings use and is light and more reliable with Ronstan Shockblocks and a Harken carbo air block. The old venturis were replaced last year with new Rileys. A new Mackay light weight fibreglass centreboard was bought last year..

Comes with 2 sailss a race saill which is still in v.good condition and a decent training sail. 2 masts - one with stiffener. Cover and good condition beach trolley with straps. Spare hook forestay and 2 side stays. Windex. Spare block and a few spare ronstan shock blocks, rope etc.. plus all paperwork.

We paid $5000 for her 2-3 years ago and have spent a fair amount upgrading. The centreboard and cover was $750 and so really this is a bargain price.

She is light, fast and ready to race. All measurements are on the Starling website. We would be happy to demonstrate/advise etc..

Please note I have sold the brand new race sail we bought for her and dropped the price by $800 to make it more affordable. The pics shown are with the brand new sail. The no 2 race sail is still in VGC but has no window.

I also have a Pinto trailer which will take 2 starlings, optimists or one of each and will sell it for an extra $1000 if interested. Will add photos of that later, but it has been great and all over the North Island with us. Have just added the trailer photos. Please click here to ask a question
