Starship is a 1998 52' Santa Cruz in what can only be described as immaculate condition.  She was built in 1998 as the first cruising version of the 52 model.  The photographic file on her construction is included.  Her original owners completed a circumnavigation before the present owners bought her in 2009.  That year, they hired Steve D'Antonio to inspect her and then completed a major refit.  Starship has seasonally cruised the Chesapeake Bay since then, while her owners have maintained her to the highest standards possible.  Her sellers' work schedule keeps them from enjoying her as much as they would like, so Starship is now available for sale in Annapolis, MD.  If you are searching for an extremely clean and well-maintained cruiser/racer, don't miss seeing Starship.
