Designed and built by Luke Brothers boatyard on the Hamble river, the hard chine shaped hull is actually carvel construction. The class survived at Erith Yacht Club on the Thames before several boats were brought back to Hamble in 2015.

The hulls are mahogany planking with a hard chine and they have a sliding gunter rig with a high boom and a small jib with a high foot which combine to give good visibility. They were also raced at Thorney Island Sailing Club in Chichester Harbour. The original six Hamble Stars built in 1926 cost £37 complete.
