Key Features

Accommodating up to 14 guests in six cabins, STARFIRE offers flexible arrangements, each with its own en-suite facilities. Featuring an on-deck master suite and upper-deck VIP cabin, she offers unparalleled comfort and privacy for discerning guests. STARFIRE's beautifully finished Modern Art Deco interiors by Zuretti Design invite you into a world of elegance exuding style and refinement.

The Owner’s cabin features a California king bed centrally placed facing forward, complemented by a pop-up TV positioned at the foot of the bed. On the port side, a relaxing lounging chair with an ottoman and a vanity equipped with power outlets can be found, while the starboard side offers a chair and dresser for additional garments. Preceding the entrance to the bathroom on either side, there are two spacious closets, which can be securely locked to safeguard the owner's personal belongings during charters. The full-beam master bathroom features a generously-sized bathtub positioned at the centerline and a roomy shower accessible from either side. The ensuite is elegantly designed, showcasing honey onyx accents, gold sinks, and fixtures.

The VIP queen cabin, affectionately dubbed the "room with a view," sits starboard and features two expansive windows fitted with blackout shades. Adjacent to this VIP cabin, the upper foyer leads to an expansive upper deck salon that spans the yacht's entire width. This salon is adorned with a fireplace, ample seating, and a fully stocked wet bar. Sliding glass doors open up to a formal upper dining area, enclosed yet flooded with natural light, featuring a generous dining table, providing an option for both indoor and outdoor dining experiences. The formal dining room on the main deck is another indulgent option, with its large marble circular table and pre-Lalique chandelier. 

STARFIRE's large exterior decks provide ample space for relaxation and entertainment, whether soaking up the sun or enjoying al fresco dining with panoramic views of the sea. The large sundeck boasts luxurious amenities including a sauna, massage room, Jacuzzi, and cinema setup, perfect for indulging in leisure activities under the open sky. Located aft is a roomy, full-beam movable settee, complemented by a pop-up 42” TV, perfect for enjoying movies beneath the open sky. In addition, there are two three-seater couches and two cozy chairs. Notably, the furnishings are adaptable, allowing the space to be transformed into a spacious helicopter landing pad with fixing points and removable railings at the aft section. Equipped with a state-of-the-art audio system, STARFIRE ensures an immersive entertainment experience for guests on board. Whether hosting a party or simply unwinding in style, she offers the ultimate in luxury and convenience.

The swim deck features a spacious hydraulic stern door that smoothly folds down, transforming into a convenient swim platform. Abundant storage is available in the aft cupboards, along with a practical day head and shower. Positioned on the starboard side of the platform, an open shower offers an ideal location for rinsing off salt before transitioning indoors. This deck provides ample room for sunbathing or facilitating the embarkation and disembarkation of guests from the Tender.

Constructed with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, the yacht benefits from a displacement hull design, delivering exceptional seakeeping abilities and impressive speeds. Powered by twin Deutz engines, STARFIRE cruises comfortably at 13 knots, with a maximum speed of 15 knots and a remarkable range of up to 5,900 nautical miles from its 140,000 liters fuel tanks at cruising speed. Equipped with an advanced stabilization system, the yacht minimizes side-to-side roll, ensuring unparalleled comfort whether anchored or underway.

Demonstrating a consistent performance over the past five years, with 940 sea days, 387 charter days, and 321 days of owner usage, STARFIRE has successfully traversed the Atlantic, Pacific, Indian Oceans, along with the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Baltic, and Red Seas. Throughout these voyages, STARFIRE has built an exceptional reputation, receiving acclaim from brokers and guests alike. Remarkably, she has upheld an impeccable track record, never failing to fulfill a charter or owner trip.

STARFIRE underwent a comprehensive refit from February to April 2023. Concurrent with the completion of her Lloyds special surveys, an extensive array of upgrades and maintenance tasks were meticulously executed. The main engines underwent 12,000-hour service, while the stabilizers received 8,000-hour service. Technical enhancements included the integration of a new Thrane Iridium GMDSS Unit. Replacement of shackles in the anchor chain and overhauling the windlasses were also completed among other enhancements. A major refit was also completed in 2019, further attesting to STARFIRE’s commitment to continual improvement. 

Her original Owner anticipated the complexities of working and living in close quarters, which led to the development of a full-beam Crew Mess divided into two sections: a crew lounge and dining area. Moreover, provision was made for six individual desks for department heads, providing both shared and private spaces for crew members to collaborate and concentrate. Having designated work areas for the crew distinguishes STARFIRE from other yachts of similar size and contributes to crew retention. The Captain’s cabin, positioned to starboard, offers accommodation for two crew members, featuring a desk adjacent to the Chief Officer's desk, a queen-size bed equipped with dual monitors displaying navigational equipment and CCTV cameras, and amenities akin to those found in the guest cabins.

With few similar yachts currently available for sale, STARFIRE presents a rare opportunity to own a truly exceptional vessel. Charter-ready and meticulously maintained, she is ready to embark on new adventures with her next discerning owner.
