Starsh is a must see First 42. She has been completely upgraded in 2020, interior and exterior, including her new, striking blue topside paint job. She features 2 private cabins, 2 heads, a practical salon with port and starboard settees with outboard pilot berths, a center line ships table, a full galley to port and the navigation station to starboard. She is very clean with teak and holly sole and teak furnishings throughout.

She has been lovingly maintained and in recent years was primarily used for day sailing in Narragansett Bay, but is well equipped to be a blue water performance cruiser. She has been extensively upgraded in recent years with new sails (Thurston Main and 135% jib in 2020), new electronics (Garmin 1242 touch screen Radar/GPS/Chart, Autopilot and wind/speed), new interior cushions, new dodger and bimini, new AGM batteries, fully rebuilt Perkins engine, and a custom winter cover. 

Starsh is easily single handled with all lines leading aft, an electric halyard winch, Dutchman mainsail system, electric windlass, Autopilot and excellent electronics. She is turn key, completely equipped and ready to cruise. Why buy new?

Be sure to ask the listing broker about how new customers can qualify for a one year 50% discount for slip and storage at an upscale Rhode Island marina...also keep in mind there is no sales tax on vessels berthed in RI.
