Nordic Star Family Yacht

One of the many appeals of this classical yacht amoung the huge variety of yachts on offer, is the distinct character. One of these yachts is 37.2m Nordic Star, built in 1978 by Italian yard CRN, which has a rich history that includes movie stars and more recently royalty.

Nordic Star was originally commissioned by actress Virna Lisi, Italy’s answer to Marilyn Monroe, whom Bridgette Bardot once described as “the world’s most beautiful woman.” Lisi was born in Ancona, home to the CRN shipyard, and the yard was the natural choice for her to commission a yacht from.She designed everything to her personal taste, even to the extent that “all corners had to be round”, otherwise her silk stockings would get caught. Following her launch Nordic Star played host to countless numbers of both Europe and Hollywood’s biggest talents over the years, including Frank Sinatra, Jack Lemmon, Anthony Quinn, and Tony Curtis.

Nordic Star was Lisi’s place to escape, to entertain, to enjoy.

Today, this classic yacht is as beautiful as it was back then. The sheer elegance of her lines – lines that are only possible with a steel hull – is head turning, especially in her current base, which is predominantly home to composite vessels. Lovingly maintained in reinstated original condition, with a sympathetic refit completed in 2012, she is a true classic and one of the few yachts of her age on the market that remains so close to her original design.

It has been the passion of her current owner to maintain her and preserve this exceptional piece of history – a classic yacht asset so well preserved that it has actually appreciated in value with every year. Featuring sumptuous Italian fittings, hand carved woods and antique furnishings, to step on board is to step back into a different era. Modern additions such as zero speed stabilizers and powerful entertainment systems ensure old meets new in the best possible way.

Nordic Star’s home port offers easy access to both the waters of the UAE and of the increasingly popular cruising grounds of Oman, which offers lush green setting, mountains, trees and rivers, all in contrast to nearby Dubai. Having seen little use other than short cruising trips around the region the yacht is in pristine condition.

Despite the passing of time and Nordic Star changing hands over the years, she still welcomes to some of the world’s best-known faces. One example is Prince Harry, who has been hosted onboard, during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix racing at Yas Marina where the yacht has a front row berth always reserved.
