4 Stateroom Ocean taming HIGH SPEED MOTOR YACHT.
Rarely will you have the opportunity to purchase a yacht with the integrity, features, abilities and quality of "Texas Star" in this price range.
In the late 1980's and 1990's, a handful of yachts were built with the most advanced engineering and machinery available. The integrity of their hulls and performance created a new era in yachting.
Achieving speeds in up to 40 knots with solid cruising speeds near 35 knots, you will enjoy the thrill of the travel as well as the arriving.
Come take a ride on "Texas Star II" at around 38 knots (approximately 43 miles mph), it is like standing on a horizontal rocketship. Your friends and you can enjoy breakfast in Fort Lauderdale, a beach picnic in Bimini and dinner in Nassau and then go for a starlight cruise at idle speeds past your favorite moonlight beach!
There are other yachts that may compete in price, but none can compete with performance. While "Texas Star II" can cruise at a lumberly 15 knots with the rest of the yachts they have no ability to cruise at 35 to 40 knots and that makes all -the- difference.
Originally conceived, the propulsion and engine package alone was a $2.4 million upgrade from the standard, which translates to a huge value/speed to you in todays economy.
So when shopping for a yacht of incomparable vintage, size and price ranges, consider the following... "Texas Star II" has:
35 to 40 knot speed
Clean, good solid strong condition
Never failed, always operating at peak levels
4 staterooms in owner's party with private staircase to master cabin
Huge salon aft deck and Flying Bridge, great for entertaining up to 45 guests (parties with 60 people have been accomplished)
Execellent yacht for Charters
Top MTU equipment and reliable low frequency of service water jets
Upgraded interior - clean and contemporary, allowing your easy additions, modifications and changes to suit your taste.
Worried about maintenance (don’t be) in the past year "Texas Star" has received $450,000 worth of work updating her machinery and mechanical condition with:
Completely rebuilt water jets
New bottom paint
Both engine inner and after coolers cleaned and serviced
Engine saltwater plumbing updated
Four Staterooms, Three Crew Quarters
Texas Star's full beam interior , style and speed make her a stunning yacht.
