Notes

Sold under different names as Sailstar Boats became Bristol Yachts. An inboard engine was available as an option. More than 750 built under both brands. Construction standards, methods and materials varied during this yachts production run. Some have balsa cored decks and the type of ballast may be lead (BRISTOL 24) or iron set in concrete (CORSAIR). aka SAILSTAR CORSAIR. (additional note 7/16) Ballast was always meant to be 3000 lbs. even though it erroneously appears as a lower number in some documentation. (according to Clint Pearson the builder). Thanks to 'Bristol 24' for providing corrections.
