Yonder Star was designed by renowned naval architect Don Brooke whose eye for generous proportions, combined with the yacht’s high quality finish, have created a gracious residence at sea.

The open and uncluttered teak decks, sheltered and relaxing soft cockpit seating and open air dining offered topside is complemented by the varnished mahogany, polished brass and sumptuous furnishings below decks in both the saloon areas as well as the cabins, complete with their own ensuites.
