POLAR STAR 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, she can accommodate 12 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 on board. The 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 area features a 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 private yachts. 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.

Quick Enquiry

"People who charter a yacht tend to want as many experiences as they can in a short space of time. It’s essentially a vacation in compressed format, so the yacht needs to collaborate with you in that. You need lots of different places to eat on board, so every day offers something different. The yacht also needs to make getting ashore easy, for meals on the beach and excursions, so it feels like you never do the same thing twice." - Espen Øino
