About the Boat

Yonder Star’s generous and sumptuous proportions reflect the designer’s intent to create a gracious residence at sea. Discerning travellers and seasoned sailors alike will appreciate the comfort, luxury and attention to detail throughout this elegant and exclusive yacht.

The topside teak deck is open, uncluttered and vast. The soft, sheltered and inviting cockpit seating invites relaxation and open-air dining. Below deck, varnished mahogany, polished brass and quality fabrics convey a sense of warmth and sophistication.
