Northstar 500 built by Hughes Boat Works, a Sparkman and Stevens design. Called "the little Swan" in its day because the design is similar to the Nautor Swans, also designed by Sparkman and Stevens. High aspect sail plan, 9 foot beam, 5 foot draft, jib, main, spinnaker and pole, atomic 4 (gas) needs rebuilding. A real nice stable day sailor. The high aspect sail plan (32 foot mast above decks) grabs wind when there is none. New bottom paint. Sailed out of Quincy (Marina Bay) for 4 years. On the hard now. Have two boats - selling this one. Comes with 5 of the boat stands shown in the photo. Cash only. Have title.
