This is the boat for Cruising…. “Morning Star” was Designed by Mr. Hartog and professionally built in Oakland, CA. A fully equipped Ferro Cement that looks like fiberglass.

With the teak in the cockpit to the trim on the cabin top it will be a head turner in any harbor. “Morning Star” has competed in many Ensenada Races and is well known on the West coast. Owner is now ready to sell and wants to find “Morning Star” a new owner.

Deck & Hull
This Ferro Cement Boat was Custom built for the previous owner as a one piece hull and deck. It has heavy reinforcement steel in the layup that makes for a very strong bond. The hull and deck was then expoxied and then fiberglass applied to certain areas. This boat looks like as nice as any fiberglass one. All the through hulls have been faired to the hull so you have no through hulls expoxed to the water. It makes for one of the best bonding systems on a boat.
