Originally built for the owner one of the largest commercial fishing fleets in the world, the 208′ (63.4m) Lurssen POLAR STAR is full Lloyd’s Ice Class as the owner envisioned cruising around all of the world’s oceans.
The owner originally intended to build the yacht at a commercial shipyard in Eastern Europe. It was only after he meeting Robert Moran, and being convinced that the true value of a yacht could only be achieved by building her at a quality shipyard, that he decided to build her at Lurssen.
In the owner’s own words, “I would not build a yacht without the involvement of Moran Yacht & Ship even though I have a huge amount of naval architects that work for me on a daily basis.” As proof, Moran Yacht & Ship already built his new vessel, NORTHERN STAR.
Moran Yacht & Ship negotiated the build contract for POLAR STAR, wrote the technical specifications and managed the entire build process for the vessel. Our team was by the owner’s side from concept well through completion.
