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!”
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…?
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!
We’ll revisit the yacht’s refit in another blog – coming soon.

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.
