€16.95 million price cut on Lürssen superyacht Northern Star
by Chris Jefferies
The 75.5 metre motor yacht Northern Star, listed for sale at Moran Yacht & Ship has had a €16.95 million price reduction.
Built by German yard Lürssen under Moran’s supervision and delivered in 2009 as an MCA-compliant explorer yacht, she features traditional exterior styling by Espen Øino. Her voluminous interiors were created by British designer Pauline Nunns, and the style has been described as evocative of a grand country home. Accommodation is for 12 guests in six cabins, while the crew quarters allow for a total staff of up to 22.
Helicopter capable, she combines the luxury of a pedigree superyacht with the go-anywhere capabilities of an expedition yacht. Key on board features include a cinema, beauty salon and gym. Northern Star also boasts an ice-classed hull and a range of 6,000 nautical miles, allowing for extended expeditions without the need to restock.
Capacious outdoor spaces provide guests with a plethora of al fresco dining and relaxation options, both on the foredeck and the sundeck. Her main deck features a large dining area with seating for 14 people, while the amidships lounge features a piano and a fire place.
Tender storage is plentiful with a foredeck Jet Ski locker as well as a side-loading garage in the transom with room for two ten metre tenders. Power comes from a pair of Caterpillar engines for a top speed of 18 knots. Advanced sound and vibration insulation combine with the on-board stabilisation system to ensure a smooth cruising experience.
Northern Star is now asking €83,000,000.
