Welcome aboard Northern Star, where adventure awaits and a talented and highly qualified crew attends to all your needs as you enjoy you indulge in the vacation of a lifetime sailing through foaming crests and brilliant blue water under a billowing cloud of sail.
From top to bottom and bow to stern, Northern Star radiates old world elegance and timeless glamour as well as performance, power, and control. Her sleek hull design and exquisite interiors feature the legendary luxury and fine craftsmanship of a Hinckley yacht. Northern Star’s layout and design are evocative of the pure grace and simple beauty that Hinckley is known for, and the impeccable quality and artistry that goes into each and every one of their hand-built boats.
With its traditional raised bulwark capped with a solid teak rail, Northern Star is a stylish and sophisticated yacht reminiscent of the golden age of sailing. It is both spacious and intimate, with plenty of areas for guests to socialize as well as enjoy some time to themselves.
Rare old-growth Honduran mahogany with raised panels with high gloss finish, gleaming brass hardware, classic lighting fixtures and custom butterfly hatches all enhance the rich look and feel of this classic sailing yacht. Both delightful to the eye and soothing to the soul, the below deck spaces are a decorative showpiece of museum quality.
Northern Star features headway throughout of approximately 6’8″ and offers four staterooms, including two suites, for a total of 8 guests. The spacious Master Suite is forward with a large centerline double, 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 and off this, on both port and starboard, are three guest cabins and a head. 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. The cabin is an intimate oasis featuring his and her twins, ample storage and a private head also with a stall shower.
Also aft of the master on the port side is a common head with shower, and on the starboard side are two well-appointed guest cabins with over and under berths, bureau and hanging lockers.
The full beam main salon is a classic work of fine art with raised panel mahogany bulkheads, bookcases and exposed mahogany beams contrasting its white Herreshoff tongue and groove headliner. To port is the U-shaped settee with a drop leaf table and opposite to starboard is a gracious and seaworthy U-shaped galley to starboard.
The main salon and galley offer an abundance of storage lockers and cabinets as well as a full breadth of amenities including a Force 10 four-burner stove with oven and an Otsein-Hoover washing machine. To port is a large U-shaped settee with a drop-leaf dining table, all surrounded with raised panel lockers, and bookcases.
Lounge in air-conditioned comfort while the crew serves you cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from the galley’s well equipped bar. Enjoy a game with friends when underway to your destinations, make use of the ship’s entertainment system, or settle in for the night with a book from the library. At mealtime, enjoy the relaxed ambiance of the dining area where mouthwatering dishes, accompanied by your favorite wines, are served to perfection by Northern Star’s exemplary crew.
Moving up and stepping aft, you’ll find Northern Star’s raised teak pilothouse, located just off the cockpit. To port is a U-shaped settee with a large dining table that offers 360-degree views while at anchor or under sail — the perfect spot to greet the day with fresh squeezed juice or morning coffee. Aft and to starboard is comfortable settee seating and a storage/charging area, handy to the companionway. To starboard is the fully equipped, forward facing navigation station.
Stepping up from the pilothouse is the large sailor’s cockpit designed with a gracious guest seating area on port and starboard, and a varnished drop leaf table on centerline. A particularly wonderful place to breathe in the fresh sea air, this is a great vantage point from which to watch the world go by and your cares disappear as you embark on a perfectly arranged chartered yacht vacation aboard Northern Star.
At the aft end of the cockpit is a separate helm-seat area with a teak rimmed wheel with navigation/sail control islands to port and starboard, designed to be within grasp for easy short-handed sailing both near shore and offshore. A custom designed hard top Sunbrella bimini covers the entire cockpit to provide protection from sun and the elements while also offering many secure hand holds while under sail.
The rhythm of life at sea is great for enjoying the sweetness of doing nothing — or as they say in Italy, “il dolce far niente.” On the deck of Northern Star, you’ll feel your worries drift away with the tide as you take in the sun’s golden rays, sweeping ocean views, and stunning scenery. Whether at high sea or docked for a shore excursion, Northern Star’s sculpted lines, spacious layout, and luxurious amenities provide the ideal charter yacht for an unforgettable getaway. The crew will ensure that every last detail of your holiday is flawlessly executed on your dream charter itinerary.
