STARBUCK is a custom built, high-performance cruising yacht, built by a seasoned yachtsman with a lifetime of racing and cruising experience. After retiring and spending three years cruising aboard a Tayana 52, he and his wife finally decided to have their own "ultimate cruiser" built. 

Accepting the fact that most cruising sailboats, by nature, are slow but comfortable; and racing boats, by nature, are fast but uncomfortable...this hybrid yacht would combine the best features of each, while eliminating the downsides.

This "ultimate cruising yacht" would have the body and speed of a race boat, but with the luxury, comfort and safety of a cruising boat; for the best of both worlds. Most importantly, she would be easily handled by a couple, utilizing a power winch and manageable sailplan. She would have a huge salon and efficient galley for entertaining. The spacious master stateroom would have incredible storage; and the head would feature the luxury of a bathtub!  Plus, she would have two comfortable guest staterooms; and a guest head would include a stall shower. There would even be work/utility room. The interior would be light, bright, open, clean and contemporary...not dark and traditional.

After consulting with multiple West-Coast designers, and extensive discussions with world-cruising authors Steve and Linda Dashew, they chose renown naval architect Bob Perry to design this ultimate performance cruiser. Famous racing-yacht builder Dennis Choate/Dencho Marine was selected for construction. She was built on a "cost plus" basis, not on a fixed bid, so there were no short cuts or compromises in construction. The owners were at the yard daily to monitor construction, which took an entire year! She had extensive shakedowns and refinements prior to completion. The design philosophy included the following:

  • Exceptional performance under sail
  • 10 knots under power
  • Fun to sail and easily handled by a couple
  • User friendly cockpit and interior
  • Practical, reliable, simple systems

Recent upgrades include a stunning new paint job on her topsides, new sails, and a custom mattress for her master stateroom. 

STARBUCK has been kept in truly immaculate condition her entire life, and shows like a vessel a fraction of her age. Replacement cost would be $1.1 million or more, making her an exceptional value. If you are looking for a cruising boat that is exciting to sail, and powers faster than a trawler, this yacht should be at the top of your list.
