Thanks for the replies.
The problem is the owner doesn't know what kind of boat it is either.
I saw the boat today. The owner thought it was built in 1980, but looking at the polyester it looks a bit newer, I would say 1990s. I was unable to find an hull identification nr of something like that.
Another problem is the height. Compared to a Centaur that was in the harbour I'd reckon it's about 8 mtrs.
The owner said it might be a french boat, with a non original rigg.
Thanks for the remark about the draft, but it will be no problem on the Buiten IJ.
I'll let you guys know if I find out anything (i'm gonna see if there are any french sailing forums!).

I do not know what class that it is, but it is clearly not an International Star Class boat (the olympic class Star). The rig is not from a International Star either. My best guess is that this is a class which has the word 'Star' in its name or is named for a specific star, (i.e. Polaris, North Star or Sirius) and therefore uses a Star as its logo. It is possible but unlikely that the sail was recycled from a Star class boat, but I say unlikely since the proportions of a Star mainsail are very different than the proportions of the sail in question, and Star sail numbers are up in the thousands.

It's not a Star, is it?
I've been reading this forum for quite a while, but never bothered to register, 'till now. I have a question regarding the determination of a small sailing boat I'm interested in. The owner doesn't know what kind of boat it is, but the mark in the sail (or how do you call it?) says it's an Star.
It obviously isn't the Olympic class Star and I'm unable to find anything online about other sorts of Star sailing boats so I'm guessing the rigg isn't original.
Anyone has an idea?
The ad is in Dutch but the most important facts are: length: 6 mtrs (19 feet), width: 2 mtrs (6.5 feet) and the depth is 1.25 mtrs (4 feet). The ad claims it sleeps two.
