Description: 1974 Hughes Northstar 8020 Sparkman & Stephens designed

Extensive 2017 refit before year long cruise in the Eastern Caribbean
Ready to cruise anywhere now
Very solid and comfortable cruising boat. Extremely safe cockpit. Split rig offers numerous sail configurations. We cruised full time for a year with our children. Did 5000nm in 7 months. We planned to keep her for a long time and did not spare any expense on her. Now it looks like work may put us on the West Coast so its time to pass her on to her next owners. I am a professional commercial mariner and outfitted this boat as such. With my two young children living and sailing aboard I wanted to have full confidence in her offshore, she has never let me down. The hull is 1 thick solid glass and has never had a blister. The deck is solid glass as well and the house is cored. There is not a single soft spot. Standing on her deck feels like standing on a steel deck. The boat is not perfect, there are cosmetic flaws here and there. She has been fully rewired using all marine grade Ancor wire.

The rig is over built, the main and mizzen masts are keel stepped and the sections are oversized. I have made all chainplates accessible and replaced one with some corrosion in 2017.

I spent 2K having the Alpha Autopilot upgraded, re-faced, bench tested, etc. It is basically a new autopilot. It amazes me how well it works. With 2 young kids on board the autopilot was one of the most essential pieces of gear.

There are a ton of spares, hardware, shackles , etc on board

The shoal draft is great for the bahamas and florida

I have all manuals and records

Too much to list, this boat is fully updated and truly ready to go. We had no intention of selling her and spent a ton of money preparing her to go anywhere, unfortunately plans have changed, we have priced her to sell.

I will post interior pics soon
