Starlight 35 built in 1994. Highly regarded with an excellent reputation for both performance and accommodation, Starlight 35 is a remarkable boat offering a blend of performance, power, comfort, security, ease of handling, innovative thinking, clever detailing and structural integrity that few can match.
She was conceived to be equally suited to coastal cruising and offshore passage-making and it’s easy to see her in both roles

'Jaybird II' is beautifully presented,very well equipped and is a gorgeous example in our opinion of these renowned all-round performance cruisers

She was built to last and her outstanding seakeeping qualities and well-balanced handling make her a delight to sail. She is fast, responsive and highly manouverable.



'Jaybird II' was the first Starlight 35 to be built by Rival Bowman with the new interior joinery. The new interior joinery incorporates a maple stripe throughout and around the door surrounds
She was exhibited at the London Boat Show in January 1994. She was then first launched and commissioned in the spring of 1994

She has the standard double hull construction with foam injected into the cavity which gives extra stiffness, warmth and quietness
She is constructed of GRP with a white GRP hull and superstructure with teak laid decks, cockpit seats and sole
