Fifty Shades of…Sand?? Lürssen Yacht POLAR STAR Sports New Colors

Posted on

Don’t ask me to accurately describe the new exterior color scheme of super yacht POLAR STAR.  All I can tell you is, “I love it!”

 

THE PAST

For the past 12 seasons, the 63 meter yacht has traveled around the Mediterranean each summer (and the Caribbean in the winter), instantly recognizable with her striking deep blue hull.  Now, after an extensive 6-month refit in Spain, including a 3 meter swim platform extension, the Lürssen private yacht charter vessel has turned her image on its head.

The blue color is no more…replaced with a shade of white…or is it grey…?

 

THE PRESENT

Immediately after the refit, Charl van Rooy, editor of Superyacht Times described the new exterior colors as, “…military light-grey.”  Fast-forward to this week, and van Rooy now says it’s a, “…light sand coloured paint scheme.”  In fairness to van Rooy, it’s not his fault – the colors are subtle and faint, and depending upon the sunlight, and refection of the water, it does appear to be different shades of off-white.

That, of course, is the point.  The owner was looking for something fresh – a new image for an iconic yacht that has visually dominated the Monaco yacht charter market for more than a decade.

If you’ll be in the South of France this summer, keep an eye open for Lürssen yacht POLAR STAR as she charts a new course and showcases her new colors!

 

COMING SOON – THE POLAR STAR YACHT REFIT STORY

We’ll revisit the yacht’s refit in another blog – coming soon.  Until then, if you are interested in your own Superyacht Experience in the Med on this or another Lürssen (or Benetti or Feadship or Abeking & Rasmussen or…) yacht charter vessel, visit our selection of Mediterranean yachts for charter at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/monaco-yacht-charters/ today!

Tax Refund? Yacht Charter Caribbean Option?

Posted on

TAX REFUND – CARIBBEAN VACATION?

The tax deadline approaches…you’ll be receiving a refund.  The family deserves a special vacation all together! photo of hundred dollar bills and tax refund paperwork. A 1040 form is underneath them

It’s time to plan…

 

WHAT TO DO IN CARIBBEAN

Why not indulge yourself and rent a private yacht with crew over the Christmas holidays this year?

Should you opt for a Caribbean Bareboat Charter instead, you can enjoy the endless parties in the islands throughout the season.

 

THE ISLANDS ON HOLIDAY

During the holidays, the Caribbean islands come alive. They have colorful festivals and celebrations everywhere.  These celebrations are a reflection of the culture of the local people.  The locals do many things.  For instance, they paint their homes in colorful tones. They also put up new fun window treatments.  Another activity is to decorate multiple Christmas trees.  They have multiple parades full of lively dancers and elaborate costumes.

Which Color Is Best?   Motor Yacht Sherakhan Gets Makeover

Posted on

If you owned a 228 foot luxury yacht charter vessel, would you paint it deep blue or polar white?

 

If you owned the massive motor yacht SHERAKHAN the answer is:  BOTH!

 

Originally built in 1965, the current owner bought the commercial vessel in 2005 and undertook a massive refit – basically gutting the entire ship from bow to stern and rebuilt her into a yacht charter vessel with accommodations for 26 guests (most yachts are limited to 12 or fewer). The full rebuild featured all new plumbing, electrical systems, air conditioning, and generators.

 

It also included a beautiful new paint job – a deep blue hull, with a white superstructure…

Fast forward to 2017, and the owner decided it was time for another refit. All new decks were installed, along with new soft fabrics throughout the guests areas and cabins, and a complete overhaul of all major equipment in the engine room.

 

As he did in 2005, the owner completely repainted the superyacht charter vessel – this time a clean, crisp white, with subtle grey accents..

The expedition style yacht is available in the Caribbean and will remain there through April.  In the summer, the yacht will relocate to the Mediterranean (e.g.  Monaco yacht charter or Grand Prix formula 1 races, etc.) for the summer of 2018.

 

So what do you think?   Do you think she looks better in blue or in white???
