This Bates Star Craft is a wooden river cruiser were built by William Bates & Son in Chertsey, Surrey on the River Thames between 1946 and 1975. The boatbuilder aimed to produce an English built luxury motor cruiser to compete with Chris Craft. Initially, the hulls were built using double diagonal construction in mahogany, with teak decks and cabin sides with oak frames. This particular vessel has been modified at some stage to have a flybridge fitted.  Owned by the current owner since 2012 she has restored to her current condition including the removal and replacement of the complete upper structure,  re-wired, and both engines have been stripped and overhauled.
