The very experienced owner, who has many years behind him as an ocean racing and cruising sailor,
required top notch design and engineering as well as seagoing comfort for his guests and crew.
The Owner’s captain, Craig Franks and yacht broker Robert Moran of Moran Yacht and Ship supervised
the project and brought in their huge spectrum of experience and consolidated knowledge.
Espen Oeino gave Northern Star a very traditional appearance, reflecting the owners ideas and she is
built to the highest technical standards combined with an abundance of practical and useful features.
Capacious outdoor spaces aft, forward and on the sundeck provide ample seating for open air dining
or lounging. Her six decks offer her 12 guests enormous space for both entertainment and relaxation.
The interior designed by Pauline Nunns can best be described as a grand country home, which is
executed in every single detail.
Powered by 2 CAT engines of 2.000 kW each, she reaches a top speed of 17 knots and has a range of
6.000 nm. Advanced sound and vibration features guarantee an extremely quite running of the yacht,
while her ice strengthened hull design and stabilising system provide for maximum comfort both under
way and at anchor.
Northern Star is a yacht built for pleasure, but above all other considerations, it is a vessel intended to
be self-sufficient during extended voyages on the high seas and suitably equipped for what ever may
