Yacht POLAR STAR - A Lurssen Superyacht

Yacht Charter Description

Motor yacht POLAR STAR is an Lurssen built 208' (63.40 m) superyacht which was launched in 2005 and designed by Espen Oeino. Superyacht POLAR STAR has an an imposing six levels of interior and exterior deck space. She is a full displacement steel hulled explorer ship which provides yacht charter guests with fantastic stability and safety, powerful presence and graceful styling. In her interior however, the yacht also shows a tranquil ambience of sumptuous decadence and elegant poise as originally created by interior designer Pauline Nunn and refitted in 2016 with new design by FM Architettura d-Interni. Lurssen of Germany, one of the most celebrated builders of quality superyachts, has created an impressive yacht in every measure and M/Y Polar Star (previously Northern Star) is coveted by many who are lucky enough to have seen her pull into port.


The POLAR STAR yacht has an imposing presence being a one of a kind expedition motor yacht. This is provided by her ample beam 42' (12.80 m) and huge volume (the real measure of a yacht’s size) which also creates an enormous interior living space. Accordingly, this luxury charter boat can accommodate 12 charter guests in complete spacious comfort with 6 independent staterooms (4 doubles and 2 twins), all with ensuite bathrooms. Her full ice class steel hull, with aluminium superstructure, means strength and safety at sea in even trying conditions and the ability to explore the world’s more remote and natural wildernesses.

Yacht Polar Star has a deck spa pool spa pool and also offers an internal a Sauna for quests. Guest Staterooms are situated up on her main deck, rather than below decks, affording extra natural light and splendid ocean views. The Owner’s Area has a stateroom, a den and an ‘his and hers’ bathroom. In addition the owner areas features its own private deck which enables panoramic views forward and on both sides of the yacht and through huge windows. The spa pool is on the owner's deck, to aft, and it holds up to 10 bathers.

The Polar Star yacht is about experiencing oceanographic and coastal delights in uncompromising comfort. The superyacht brings capacious outdoor decks aft, forward and also on the Sundeck making for the ideal interaction with the natural environment. These areas provide ample seating for entertaining, open air dining or lounging and in addition there are numerous easy access ‘day head’ bathrooms and showers at hand.

Luxury yacht Polar Star's ice class hull allows access to all the world's oceans, including some areas in the Arctic and Antarctic which have been till recently outside the scope of a private yacht charter. A preference for cruising remote and unfashionable cruising regions explains the fact that the Crew Accommodation Area (seven cabins in all, plus crew lounge) is located centrally rather than in the crew's traditional place way up forward, where the ship's motion underway offers no respite from the violence of heavy seas. For ease of access by chef and assistants, the ship's galley is located on the same deck as the crew cabins.

Yacht Polar Star also has a Tank Deck which has a generous storage space, industrial grade freezer and refrigeration rooms and laundry room, chill room and garbage storage compartment – all necessary for long range and remote exploratory cruising. She has a high quality bi-level engine room with control room and voluminous machinery compartments. Her stern garage holds water toys and marine equipment like jet skis, wave runners and kayaks as well as adjacent compartments for fishing gear. A custom built dive compressor can charge five tanks simultaneously. Superyacht Polar Star also has a gym, at anchor zero speed stabilisers, a 30' Naiad tender Inflatable and a 30' Centre Console tender with twin outboards.
