My name is Graham Hunt, I live about 6 miles from the original Star yacht factory in
Birkenhead. As a youngster, I can remember the Star yachts being sailed locally
in boating lakes and ponds also the fun that you got from doing this, as I still
do. Many people have bought or received as a present
these yachts and probably have one still stashed away with broken masts, ripped
sails or small parts missing, my aim is to help get these yachts sailing again
and give the fun & pleasure back. I hope to inspire people to start or
rekindle an interest in Star yachts and hopefully build a portfolio over time
which should help you identify the different Star yachts, show you the original
colours, the types of sails, the finer details, to help you to
"Keep your boat afloat!".
I could not start this venture without the
memories, information and knowledge from Frank Denye, the last surviving owner
of the Birkenhead Star Yacht empire, his support has been invaluable and to whom
I am immensely grateful. I am happy to say that Frank Denye is now patron of
the Birkenhead Star Yacht Appreciation Society.
