About this Bowman Starlight 46

'Chaika III', a Bowman Starlight 46 Yacht, one of the last three Starlight 46's built by Rival Bowman Yachts Ltd in 2000/2001. The concept and design was continued by CR Yachts in 2003 and the Bowman Starlight 46 became the CR Yacht 470. Superb single cockpit with twin wheels makes for a very simply, safe and user friendly area. She offers fantastic accommodation with berths that can be used at sea. The deck layout provides very easy sail handling for short handed and long distance work as required. She has been used by a husband and wife team for cruising. Please call for more information.
