Starwind 19 sloop, 1986

  • Price: $3,500 OBO
  • Located: Columbia, SC on Lake Murray


  • Boat has been in fresh water its entire life (on Lake Lanier prior to Lake Murray) and has zero rust on stainless hardware. Hull is structurally sound with only a few minor stress cracks. Deck is fiberglass with foam core- no soft spots or core rot present. Boat does not leak. Gel coat is good on the hull, the deck could use some polishing. Bottom is gel-coat no bottom paint. Teak is weathered but intact. Swing up rudder in great condition. Keel is lead encapsulated and in good condition. Retractable centerboard in good condition, pendant was replaced in 2017 with new line and hardware.


  • Standing rigging is older but in good condition with zero rust. Halyards replaced 2019 and sheets replaced 2017. Aluminum mast in good condition and has windex and topping lift along with attachment for whisker pole which is included in sale. Has tabernacle on base for easy mast raising- can be done single handed. Also included is crutch for mast-down transport. Chainplates are in good condition. One internal wooden bulkhead was replaced prior to my ownership, other is original and in good condition. I have sailed this boat in 20+ mph winds with zero rigging issues.


  • Sails are original to boat, but are in good condition. Somewhat stretched out but very usable for day sailing and cruising. Includes Main and 100% jib with sail covers for both which are in very good condition.


  • Cabin is in very good condition and includes full set of cushions, porta potty, and some safety gear. Forward hatch is opening and makes sleeping onboard very comfortable. Have slept two people onboard for three days easily. Also included (if desired) is portable stove that can be used in the cockpit.


  • Boat was rewired in 2015 prior to my purchase and all lights and devices work. Includes bow, stern, and mast navigation light along with built in VHF radio and antenna. Cabin center light works as does the fan. Also in the cabin are LED lights beside V-berth which provide excellent light. Includes AGM house battery and small solar panel with charge controller to maintain battery.


  • Motor is 1996 4 HP Johnson “Sea Horse” model with 25” shaft. Motor is 2-stroke with 2 cylinders which means it runs very smooth for such a small motor and only weighs about 27 lbs. Will push boat at hull speed at half throttle easily. Motor had new impeller and lower unit oil change with new spark plugs in May 2020 and is in excellent condition. Sale includes two 3-gallon tanks with hoses. Motor is very economical and has always been used with ethanol free gas. Motor bracket on boat in good condition.


  • Trailer is older galvanized trailer that has been redone in my ownership including: new bunks and rollers in 2017, new LED lights with wiring in 2017, new hubs/bearings and tires (with spare) in 2020. I have launched this boat in many different locations and this trailer is perfectly set up. Pulls easily behind small SUV (I use Ford Escape). Overall trailering weight about 2500 lbs.


  • Sale includes many spares, extra items, tow straps, and records associated with boat. I have owned this boat for almost 6 years and have sailed it regularly in many conditions. It sails excellent in light wind but can handle the heavy stuff. Boat is very dry when sailing and has the capability of a bigger boat with the feel of a smaller boat. With the centerboard down, this boat sails to weather easily and downwind the whisker pole enhances the experience. I am happy to show the new owner how to rig and raise/lower the mast.
