Lürssen superyacht Northern Star sold
by Chris Jefferies
The 75.4 metre motor yacht Northern Star, listed for sale at Moran Yacht & Ship has been sold in an in-house deal. She will now undergo an extensive summer refit to get her in prime condition for the Caribbean charter season.
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 when cruising at 12 knots, 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 17 knots. Advanced sound and vibration insulation combine with the on-board stabilisation system to ensure a smooth cruising experience.
Northern Star was asking €83,000,000.
