575-26c African Starling is a 575 like no other, extremely highly customised to optimise sailing performance, handling efficiency, comfort and style all in one unique design.
Equipped with a centreboard keel that extends to 3.82m (12.’6”) when lowered, minimising to a super shoal of only 1.65m (5’5”) when raised, the design offers increased accessibility to shallower anchorages without compromising the overall sailing performance. This coupled with the extended carbon fibre rig, Nitronic rods, Elvstrøm Technora/carbon furling main and headsails, and additional spec features such as remote autopilot and windlass controls, bow and stern thrusters, and upgraded winch and spinnaker package, means that African Starling is not only simple to handle, but is also fast and efficient too.
Featuring a counter stern transom, extended aft deck and hydraulically controlled swim platform and passerelle, the on-deck space is vast and effortlessly functional, making boarding, swimming and entertaining easy.
Aesthetically she is a real head turner, not only in terms of her modern sleek design, but also in terms of her custom finishes and styling. Neutral warm tones above deck marry seamlessly with the teak interior joinery and ivory furnishings below, providing a bright, clean and adaptable colour palette throughout. The layout, compromising of three double cabins and a workshop, are carefully designed to optimise functionality, whilst the host of spec extras also ensure that there is every conceivable comfort at your fingertips.
Exceptionally maintained by a very conscientious owner with a no expense spared approach since new, African Starling is one-of-a-kind offer that should not be missed. Currently based in Ibiza, early viewing highly recommended.
