It is no wonder that STARSHIP, a 143 ft Van Mill luxury yacht has long been a popular yacht on the charter circuit. Stepping onboard STARSHIP feels so welcoming, like visiting the estate of a friend. The rich, dark tones of makore and mahogany wood throughout the yacht impart an Old World dignity. Objets d’art, well worthy of pause; add a dash of lightheartedness to every space. A décor that manages to be beautiful, refined and comfortable makes guests feel at once esteemed and embraced.
The salon on STARSHIP has plush overstuffed chairs and sofa grouped for conversation. There is also a full bar, game table and plenty of entertainment options to be enjoyed on the 52 inch flat screen.
Moving forward through the beautifully decorated foyer we reach the alluring private formal dining room with panoramic views. The circular dining space is unusually positioned below the helm, with a surround of windows overlooking the bow. While many guests prefer al fresco dining, the draw of this gracious room is powerful.
The staterooms on STARSHIP are located on the lower level and seem quite vast on this beamy yacht. The master has a king bed, walk in closet, bathroom with multi head steam shower, and his and hers vanities. The lovely sitting area with sofa, chairs and coffee table is perfect for a leisurely scan of the paper over continental breakfast. The VIP stateroom has a queen bed, a Pullman and sofa bed, making it an ideal nanny cabin.
The helm on STARSHIP features a very astonishing floor, a mosaic of wood pieces that create a spectacular period map of the continents with ancient mariners on watch. It is these, and similar details, that make this yacht so delightfully surprising.
STARSHIP is currently based in Fort Lauderdale and is available for charter locally and in the Bahamas. STARSHIP is a very popular option for day charters cruising the Intracoastal Waterway and Biscayne Bay. But be forewarned, there is a level of comfort and relaxation on board that is so enveloping that time slips away. One day on board will hardly be enough.
