The 65.2-metre Polar Star, currently listed for sale with Paul Moran, Lidia Tsareva and Vladimir Tupikov of Eastwind Yachts, has had a price further price drop of €5,000,000 ahead of her appearance at the Monaco Yacht Show.
Built by Lürssen in 2005, the steel and aluminium explorer motor yacht was designed by Espen Oeino. She has an ice-class hull, giving her access to remote parts of the world not typically frequented by most yachts.
Polar Star underwent an extensive refit in 2016 and has been continuously upgraded, including a full repaint by Pinmar in 2021. The broker said that "her new interior gives off a feeling of comfortable sophistication, with soft ocean tones throughout the ship."
Accommodation is for 12 guests in five cabins. The owner's cabin offers spectacular views and enjoys its own lounge for added privacy during extended cruising. The original interior design was by Pauline Nunns with a subsequent interior refit overseen by FM Architettura d’Interni.
During her 2016 refit, the hexagonal spa pool was replaced with a more practical rectangular, glass-fronted one, flanked by large sunpads, while a guest office was remodelled into a massage room.
The aft platform had also been extended by two metres and is large enough for guests to safely spill out onto from the sauna. Up top, the sundeck's hardtop was replaced with one made from carbon fibre, promising a weight reduction.
There are quarters for a crew of up to 20. The 1,495GT explorer yacht for sale has a 7,000-nautical-mile range with twin CAT 1,379kW engines pushing her up to a cruising speed of 14 knots and top speed of 15.5 knots. Polar Star completed her 15-year survey in 2020, when the generators and main engines had a complete rebuild.
Polar Star's asking price is now €59,000,000 (VAT paid).Read more/How a 63m Lürssen explorer yacht was reborn.
