WISHING STAR, Contract #407, is one of the two large 84’ hulls built by Trumpy and the only one in the cruiser configuration. The yacht was commissioned by Col. David Flagstaff and was originally named PINTAIL. Later names include ARAS, ACHASTES and finally WISHING STAR in 1984 as named by Mr. Michael Eagan (Alamo Rent-a-Car), she has held this name since. 1997 through 1999 saw an exhaustive $2.2 million complete rebuild returning WISHING STAR to literally new condition in all respects. Her present owner has owned the yacht for 17 years and has proven to be a first-rate custodian, continuing to upgrade and improve her along the way, most recently with an extensive yard period overseen by the experts at McMillen Yachts in Portsmouth, RI. Those inspecting her will find her in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition, with updated systems and ready to go.


WISHING STAR features a wonderful arrangement plan. Crew quarters are in the bow featuring two separate sleeping cabins, a head with a separate stall shower, and a U-shaped settee. A full beam Galley with a laundry facility is next aft with access to the engine room and companionway to the dining saloon. An oval inlaid dining table is the centerpiece of the dining area and seats 6-8 comfortably with forward and side-facing windows and generous storage aft. The wheelhouse is next aft followed by the salon which flows out to the aft deck through French doors. A companionway aft in the salon leads to two twin berth cabins forward with a shared head and a beautiful queen berth owners cabin aft with an en-suite head. A generous cockpit aft allows for fishing or gathering for watersports.
