"STARRLIGHT EXPRESS" is an original owner, exclusively freshwater vessel, that has been extensively customized by the addition of a well engineered cockpit, installation of new engines including the entre drive line and steering systems, electronics, entertainment systems and essentially everything that the yacht has ever needed has been continuously upgraded as required by her meticulous owner.

She features an expansive four stateroom layout that offers considerable space in every aspect of her design. From her wide body salon, to her spacious and businesslike pilothouse, to her absolutely HUGE bridgedeck, this boat exudes space and plenty of it. The pilothouse is positioned forward for excellent sight lines while underway and at the dock. Pilothouse doors both port and starb'd provide excellent access to side decks and the foredeck. Dockside handling is a snap due the very responsive Hynautic power assisted steering system, the American Marine counter rotating bow thruster and oversize rudders. Interior highlights include the full-beam salon, separate eat-in galley, enclosed pilothouse, private-entry master stateroom, and a large walk-in engine room with a laundry center just outside.

Abaft the pilothouse is the spacious main salon featuring contemporary furniture, updated entertainment systems, flat screen TV and a beautiful wet bar positioned aft near the covered aft deck area. The expansiveness of the salon will rival many living rooms at home. A private stairway provides access to the master stateroom and walk-in engine room. A second stairway in the pilothouse provides access to the three guest staterooms and two guest heads. The gorgeous galley is up and just abaft the pilothouse and offers a eat-in dinette that will easily seat four. The decor is light and airy with plenty of white Corian countertops and white vinyl panels offset by the absolutely stunning teak woodwork that Viking became famous for.

The bridge deck is accessed inside, from a stairway just abaft the galley and is truely awesome in size and utility. Complete bimini tops and enclosures surround the seating areas that will accommodate a small crowd. Complete wet bar and refrigerator along with a dinette table provide plenty of entertainment possibilities. The boat deck is aft and features a Marquipt davit with chocks for two jet skis, but could be augmented to accommodate a good sized RIB.

The custom cockpit was designed and installation overseen by Naval Architect, Timothy Graul, and all engineering data is available for review. By adding the cockpit, fuel capacity was increased from 750 gallons to 1,300. All installation was performed by the crew at Shipyard Island Marina on Washington Island, Wisconsin where the boat has been stored since new. With addition of the two NEW MAN D2842LE406's (1200hp, each), and the upgraded driveline and steering systems...cruise speed has become a very comfortable and economical 20 knots. This very knowledgable owner invested 650K in the new engines and driveline equipment, over 175K in the cockpit and tanks, design and installation...all because he couldn't fiind another boat to replace this boat. Countless other dollars have been spent on basic upgrades and improvements. Now, with just 300 hours since these projects were completed, "STARRLIGHT EXPRESS" is now seriously for sale.

An extensive set of pictures and detailed equipment list is available upon request for this vessel. All yard bills are available for inspection to illustrate in incredible detail and maintenance that has gone into this stunning freshwater cruising vessel. This is great opportunity to own a extremely well maintained and upgraded, dependable vessel for a price well below market value.   Located in Washington Island, Wisconsin.
