  • Please help with identifying an 80's Starcraft model

    I have been trying to identify a Starcraft model that in the 80's I spent a fair amount of time on as a child. I looked through the brochures and didn't find it, so I am thinking it is an 84 or 85 model. I also combed through most of "post a pic" pages as well as a google image search, so a photo may have evaded me. Some family friends owned it, but unfortunately asking them is not an option. I would like to locate one for purchase.

    About the boat:

    -Fiberglass hull (kind of tan-ish)
    -Closed bow, the doors leading to the cabin were wood.
    -IO
    -the unique feature (to me) was the swim platform. It may have been fiberglass as well and contoured upwards around the outdrive. I remember quite a few pieces of teak were screwed on to the platform.

    Thanks! Any help would be appreciated!!!

      That is actually the problem...I don't have any photos. If I can figure out the model, then I might have better luck tracking down a photo of someone/anyone's model.

            It did have a cuddy cabin. It definitely was not an Islander, though. I am not sure if it was a rare model, or what. The owner was a dealer for Starcraft conversion vans in the 80s, so maybe the boat being a one-off isn't out of the question? Unlikely but possible, especially after an exhaustive search trying to find something comparable. If I come across a photo next time I'm at my parent's house, I will be sure to post it.
