54m (177’) M/Y Starfire sold by IYC

IYC is delighted to announce the sale of 54m (177’) M/Y Starfire, with Michael Rafferty of the IYC Palm Beach office representing the buyer and Merle Wood and Northrop & Johnson representing the seller.. Built by Italian yard Benetti in 1998, with a full refit in 2012, Starfire is a beautiful tri-deck displacement motoryacht that has multiple on board spaces and a host of amenities that make her perfect for private use and charter alike. She has a particularly impressive reputation for charter, a passionate and longstanding crew and an adventurous list of destinations visited.

Featuring an Art Deco style interior by Francois Zuretti, Starfire’s design is elegant and classic, yet relaxed and welcoming. The yacht sleeps 12 with six guest staterooms and accommodation for 12 crew. She boasts no less than two saloons and four different dining areas, ensuring her guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing which of her many spaces to enjoy.

Starfire’s main deck is a light-filled split space with a bar, lounge seating and coffee table aft and a dedicated dining space forward. The saloon connects directly with main aft deck, home to a large circular formal dining table and the perfect spot for breakfast and casual dining. An impressive main deck lobby serves as the yacht’s entrance point, incorporating an elegant staircase that connects the upper, main and lower decks. A second lobby on the lower deck serves as a welcome point for four of the guest cabins – two twins and two doubles, each with opulent ensuites. The large full beam master, located on the upper deck, includes a separate study room, vanity, two sitting areas and ensuite with shower and Jacuzzi bath. The main deck VIP is similarly impressive and boasts beautiful views.

A second large guest space is the skylounge, with a more relaxed décor and several features including a games table, bar and casual seating, all complemented by incredible sweeping views through the expansive glass windows – a truly stand out design feature. This room leads out to a covered aft upper deck with dining table and further aft to more casual seating and coffee tables, making this deck ideal for indoor-outdoor living. The sundeck is another huge space, with a Jacuzzi, bar, dining table, a padded seating area big enough to host all guests, circular sofa and coffee table, and tender storage. This deck can also be transformed into an outdoor cinema set up at night. A beautiful glass enclosed massage room, sauna and gym for the ultimate relaxation and wellness hub is also located on the sundeck. Additional outdoor seating can be found in two spots on the forward deck, with circular seating and coffee tables.

Starfire carries a large number of water toys including towables, Waverunners, jet skis, kayaks, paddle boards, SeaBobs and more. Her beach club serves as the base for on-water activity, providing a perfect water-level base for swimming, water sports and relaxing. Cruising at 12 knots with a maximum speed of 15 knots Starfire is powered by twin Deutz 1573hp engines and features Quantum Zero Speed Stabilisers. Designed to travel almost anywhere, she is extremely stable and has a range of 5000nm at 12 knots.

Starfire was asking $13,900,000
