Yacht Description

Come aboard and experience the luxury of Northern Star. This 76′ modern cutter-rigged sloop was designed by Ocke Mannerfelt and handcrafted by the Hinckley Company in 1993 with a traditional old world aesthetic that features teak decking, beautiful butterfly hatches and custom mahogany interiors throughout. With her graceful overhangs and elegant sheerline, she combines state-of-the-art performance, power, and control to create a truly modern and timeless classic. Northern Star is one of the finest yachts in the world and with her carbon furling mast and hydraulic winches, she offers true single-handed capacity underway and an experience steeped in the rich traditions of sailing the open seas. A 2014 refit included new luxury soft furnishings and bed linens, new table ware, fresh exterior varnish, all brass refinished and all systems checked and serviced. NORTHERN STAR accommodates 6 guests in three cabins. The interior is fully air-conditioned and headroom is 8 6 throughout The spacious Master Suite is forward with a king v-berth, hanging locker and private head with a separate stall shower. There is also a comfortable seat and a writing desk on the starboard side. A center hallway runs aft to the salon. Aft and to port of the master stateroom is an elegant VIP Suite that was originally planned for the King and Queen of Norway who frequented the yacht. This cabin is an intimate oasis featuring his and her twins, ample storage and a private head with a stall shower. Also aft of the master on the port side is a common head with shower. On the starboard side are two well-appointed guest cabins, each with over and under single berths, a bureau and hanging locker. These two cabins share the common head and shower.
