Set to become amongst the first class superyacht destinations in the world, Barcelona – with phased marina completions throughout 2013/2014, the pre-eminent home port located in Spain, the popular Mediterranean charter destination – is very pleased to have invited one of the world’s finest luxury vessels, superyacht Shooting Star, to take part in the creation of an haute couture, culture and luxury lifestyle magazine photographic spread. Shooting Star yacht will be present in the port from August 11th – 15th.
As Marina Port Vell turns toward the completion of its transformation, the delivery of a dream home port and superb visiting yacht and charter destination, it is marking the milestone by developing collaborative relationships within the superyacht community. Promoting Barcelona, luxury and the yachting lifestyle by developing relationships with yachts like luxury superyacht Shooting Star is the first step of many in furthering its mandate to create cohesion between the stunning culture and personality of Barcelona and yachtsmen.
At 38m, motor yacht Shooting Star —with naval architecture by Espen Øino International/Danish Yachts—is an impeccable yacht with a style that is dramatically unique and instantly recognisable. The original concept and brief for Shooting Star was to integrate light and space into a high tech carbon fibre superyacht that could achieve speeds in excess of 47 knots, yet still provide the degree of luxury that would also ooze quality and comfort. All this was to be achieved in a 38 metre motor yacht with no compromise in terms of high-speed performance and handling.
Shooting Star yacht’s interior reflects the striking and inspirational light in Skagen where she was built. Light and space are apparent throughout the interior and below decks where skylights and clever use of glass allows natural light to filter right through the yacht. By using textures, fabrics and colours, which have brought together a truly remarkable and unique feel throughout the interior, there is a timeless elegance using the very best classic and contemporary Scandinavian design. Her sumptuous cabins below decks reveal an attention to detail rarely seen, even in the most exclusive levels of the superyacht industry.
Luxury yacht Shooting Star’s accolades are many. To name but a few, she has received the following honors.
