Desert Stenella (formerly Wishing Star) is a 1977 Nor Star Flicka, fractional sloop, Hull #17, that was completely updated in 1998 by the previous owners. The boat was sailed throughout the Puget Sound basin, the San Juan Islands and the Canadian Gulf Islands; then brought via flatbed to Houston Texas, where she has been sailed in and around Galveston.
She has been on the hard since 2007 and subsequently has some sun and weather wear and tear. She remains structurally sound and could be sailed as is. However with some topside work, front hatch repair, rub-rail repair, complete paint and woodwork refinishing she could be restored to her original beauty. The interior has remained dry and is without mildew or mold.
