Accordingly, this luxury charter boat can accommodate 12 charter guests in complete spacious comfort with six independent staterooms (4 doubles and two 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.
There are a deck spa pool and Sauna for guests. 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 a ‘his and hers’ bathroom. Also, the owner areas feature its 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.
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 also 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.

POLAR STAR Enquiry
"I once had a client who told me, “I will put your name on the side of my boat if it’s good, but if the boat is not good, your name will appear three times as big.” We were brought up with the sense that it is a very personal obligation for the family when we sign a contract to deliver a yacht that the client expects. I cannot go to a client and say “One of my guys made a mistake.” He would say “Is he Mr. Lürssen, or are you Mr. Lürssen?” But a successful delivery is also a great reward. I take the relationships of my clients very personally." - Peter Lürssen of Lürssen Yachts (courtesy SuperYachtTimes)
