Yacht Description

Starship features five cabins for 12 guests and accommodation for up to 10 crew. The master stateroom is particularly impressive with a separate lounge space to complement the King bed and large master bath. Other accommodation include the VIP stateroom with lounge sofa offering accommodations for two additional guests on the sofa and pullman above, two additional King staterooms and a twin stateroom all with impeccable styling and updated furnishings. 

Starship boasts a beautiful interior that makes use of exquisite marbles, rich polished woods and elegant soft furnishings. Her impressive large main foyer, with its marble floors and spiral staircase, sets the tone for the rest of the yacht with its large and generous spaces and classic styling. This entrance point leads into the main salon, home to amenities including several sofas and leather chairs, coffee tables and a bar, all set off by high and wide windows and details including impressive marble columns. The Main Salon is elegantly decorated in Makore and mahogany wood throughout and offers very spacious entertainment areas. 

A second foyer is located aft on the main deck and provides yet more space to welcome guests into the yacht with beautiful artwork and seating. A circular dining space with a large table for formal dining for 10 guests is located forward of the main deck and includes large surrounding windows that provide enviable views. This space also provides a walk-in china closet to starboard. Moving upwards, the skylounge is a beautiful spot to retreat to with plenty of casual seating and a bar, making it the perfect spot to either relax, read or enjoy pre or post dinner drinks. 

Exterior spaces are large and welcoming and include a full dining area on the upper aft deck, additional dining space on the aft deck, a flybridge with lounge seating, large sunpad forward and a Jacuzzi with sunloungers on the foredeck. The bridge deck aft features a 'touch and go' helipad and storage for personal water craft. A generous swim platform is the perfect space for guests of all ages to enjoy time in the water with soft seating to relax on as well. 

Powered by twin Caterpillar 3512B engines, Starship cruises at 13 knots with a maximum speed of 17 knots. A shallow draft of approximately 6’ paired with a Jet Drive allows Starship easy access to almost every destination and anchorage without restriction. She has proven her seagoing credentials with previous travels including five Atlantic crossings and for the adventurous of spirit, she also carries a huge collection of toys and tenders. 

The yacht underwent a $14 million refit in 2003/4, which included a full new interior and all-new systems. Starship has been maintained with attention to detail and the care of a passionate crew. Other work has included new Quantum Zero-Speed stabilisers in 2006, a $2 million refit that included an exterior paint job and interior refresh in 2015, and most recently a $300,000 maintenance program in 2017. 

Starship has been listed at a very attractive price and offers tremendous value when compared to other yachts of her size. With a proven charter history and layout that is perfectly suited to charter groups, Starship represents an excellent investment for owners seeking a yacht that can command a busy charter schedule.

Refit Information

In 2003/4 STARSHIP completed an exhaustive two year refit which involved removing the entire interior down to bare walls, and the exterior to bare metal. $14 million later, with all new systems including new Caterpillar engines, electronics, entertainment, navigation and machinery; STARSHIP was new.  Then in 2006 Quantum Zero-Speed stabilizers and new generators were added.  In September of 2015 she benefited from another $2 million Furuno Inmarsat C Satcoms expenditure which included new exterior paint, an updated interior, and many system updates as well.  Finally, another $300,000 was recently spent in 2017 to keep her in top condition.

This five-stateroom Dutch-built motoryacht has made five Atlantic crossings with her current owner, and has carried a Bell 206 Jet Ranger (NOT included) and Jet-A fuel.  She also has an 18’ Novurania tender and lots of water toys and dive equipment.  With a $3,000,000 price reduction in October of 2017, this is an opportunity to buy this magnificent yacht for a fraction of what has been spent.
