General Details

The Star is one of the most prolific keel boats in the world for a reason: it is an incredible boat to sail. Designed in 1911 by Francis Sweisguth, it has proven to be a classic in every sense. It is the oldest Olympic class, having first been used in competition in 1932, and still at the heart of that competition today. Supported by a worldwide association, the Star as a class is one of the best organized in sailing, with over 7,500 yachts built over its 80 year history, and 2000-plus actively racing today.
The Star has evolved into the consummate craft for all ranges of competition and performance sailing: its equipment and rig is simple enough for the novice, yet versatile enough for those on the forefront of sailing. It's large, powerful sail plan, combined with a sleek hull and light weight, propel the boat in the faintest of airs, while the flexible spar can be tuned to "de-power" when the breeze kicks up. The large main is infinitely adjustable, allowing the sailor to completely control the driving surface of the sail. Boats today are generally constructed of fiberglass, with positive flotation and an integrated keel. The design, sails, and equipment of the Star are governed by stringent class rules, created to improve competition on the basis of skill and control cost . This has also served to help the longevity of the design, keeping older boats competitive through careful evolution.
Stars are generally "dry-sailed", that is, stored on their trailers when not in use, and with a total weight around 1500 lbs, can easily be towed from place to place.
Many of the world's top sailors past and present have been involved in the Star Class. It's list of former World Champions reads like Who's Who of yachting: other top sailors such as Colin Beashel, John Kostecki, Mats Johansson, Hans Vogt, Benny Anderson, Rod Davis and Mark Reynolds are also involved in the Star class. But the class is made up of a variety of sailors of all ages and skill levels. One race on a Star has hooked some sailors for life: they'll tell you: It's a thrill.

The Star class of racing vessel is sloop-rigged, with a mainsail larger in proportional size than any other boat of its length. Unlike most modern racing boats, it does not use a spinnaker when sailing downwind. Instead, when running downwind a whisker pole is used to hold the jib out to windward for correct wind flow. Early Stars were built from wood, but modern boats are generally made of fiberglass.

From 1986 the Mader boats have been built with epoxy resin. The following is how our new boats are constructed. We start by spraying gel coat in the mold. Next we laminate a thin fiberglass roving followed by more roving and finally a biaxial roving. Then we fit a foam core and laminate that in with a bi-axial roving and finish with normal roving. The deck is laminated the same as the hull. The cockpit liner is laminated with two layers of roving and has a thinner foam core and finally one thin layer of roving. To prepare the hull for the cockpit a "U" shaped keelson is glued to the floor of the hull. Together with this the cockpit is glued onto the hull with a precise fixture to insure proper fit. While the hull and cockpit are curing, the deck is removed from the mold and prepared to be installed on the hull.

After the deck is installed the boat goes into a large oven to cure. After the hull comes out of the oven, then the completed hull comes out of the mold. In certain areas we reinforce the hull to deck joint with laminate. Also at this time the underside of the deck is sealed. The hull will be placed in the oven for a second time for curing. Once the hull is completed the prepared keel is placed into a fixture to insure proper placement. After gluing and bolting the keel to the hull we fit the skeg and rudder. The final step before the fittings are mounted the hull, keel, rudder and skeg are highly polished. As to the fitting out of the boat, it is all done custom to the boat owners wishes and suggestions. We have found our process creates a very fast boat with a long life expectancy. Our boats have won many Worlds, Europeans, North American and Olympic Championships.

The Star class pioneered an unusual circular boom vang track, which allows the vang to effectively hold the boom down even when the boom is turned far outboard on a downwind run. Another notable aspect of Star sailing is the extreme hiking position adopted by the crew and at times the helmsman, who normally use a harness to help hang low off the windward side of the boat with only their lower legs inside.
