Lürssen’s Northern Star has been described as an English country house on water. This genteel yacht, which Lürssen launched in August, 2009, has seemingly endless exterior deck space and interiors filled with natural light. Country-home touches include antiques and reproductions, paired with cream-colored wool carpet. Northern Star truly shines as a charter yacht thanks to such features as a helipad and six decks, plus two hot tubs. The yacht also offers a gym and a movie theater, as well as a main salon that can morph into a dance floor or a children’s playroom. Her many amenities include a roulette wheel and a Steinway grand player piano, while a bar, study, and private deck highlight the yacht’s upper-deck master suite, which is accompanied by five staterooms.
