When we asked Tom Gillmer to design a 35 footer, this is the idea we had in mind: Big, beautiful, fast, and offshore friendly.  Great performer on and off the wind.  With a comfortable, nicely crafted, well-executed all-wood interior that is at the same time both classic and modern.  Alleluia is a good example of a cleanly designed, ruggedly built and well-maintained offshore cruiser.  We built this boat in 1984 and sailed her for a summer.

In 1980, to confirm theories as to how ancient mariners managed long sea journeys before sophisticated instruments were developed, Explorer Marvin Creamer commissioned our Bristol shop to build NavStar, a special factory finished Southern Cross 39. The 39 was designed by US Naval Academy marine architect Thomas Gillmer. Tom had designed the Seawind Ketch, the first fiberglass sailboat to sail around the world. Marvin successfully completed his historic trans-Atlantic voyage with no navigational instruments, just a thumb and a forefinger. (One would think that if you headed east from Newport you would eventually bump into something, but maybe it's more complicated than that.) Marvin bumped into West Africa, confirming his theory. After completing this voyage, Navstar was upgraded with modern navigation equipment and many other conveniences.

Her tall rig and 7.4 knot hull speed give Navstar excellent cruising performance, either along the coast or offshore. With her buoyant stern and significant freeboard, heavy weather sailing aboard Navstar is safe and enjoyable. Her Autohelm and Aries wind vane provide for easy short-handed sailing.

Navstar is a double-ended auxiliary cutter with a cutaway keel and skeg-mounted rudder. Her Airex-cored hull provides exceptional rigidity and resiliency, as well as both sound and thermal insulation. She feels like a wooden boat.

This vessel has been donated to a marine charity and her price again reduced.
