Kingship motor yacht Star sold
by Malcolm MacLean
Built in steel and aluminium by Chinese yard Kingship Marine to Lloyds class, Star is the fifth yacht from this yard to be designed by Vripack and was delivered in 2012. A refit in 2014 saw her receive new decor throughout including designer Italian furnishings and Oriental artworks.
Accommodation is for 10 guests in five cabins including a full beam master suite on the main deck while below are two VIP suites and two twins, all with entertainment systems and full en suite bathroom facilities.
The bridge deck is particularly attractive with a sky lounge opening out on to an uncovered aft deck and a partially covered sun deck with a Jacuzzi, bar and electric barbecue. The sundeck also features a very large bar-food service counter to port, with six fixed bar stools that are comfortably far apart. Behind the counter are two fridges. Opposite, there is a large settee and sunpads forward. A drop-down TV has also been installed. Recessed lighting at the base of the bar area and the settee combine with lighting inside the Jacuzzi to create a great nighttime feel. These large deck areas are perfect for al fresco relaxation, entertaining and dining.
She received a new exterior paint job in 2016 and twin 750hp Caterpillar diesel engines give her a range of 4,500 nautical miles. Unsurprisingly, she is fitted with Quantum zero speed stabilisers.
Star was asking $11,950,000.
