About this Sailboat:
This is a very well built sailboat with features that no other sailboat has. Stellar sailboats were only made between 1984 and 1986 and 10 were made. This is one of only two with a retactable keel.
The hull is very strong with a 1/2in balsa wood core with 1/4 inch fiberglass on each side of the balsa making the hull an inch thick. The deck and cockpit are made this same way and it feels like you are walking on solid ground on the decks. The special thing that makes this boat so great is it weighs only 5800lbs! This makes it very easy to tow with any suv or truck.
