Lurssen 247’ "Northern Star"Cruising into the Cold Blue Yonder by Capt. Chuck Gnaegy Lurssen launches yet another of its strikingly-designed, strong and sea-worthy mega-yachts, catering to its owners’ needs for sea-going originality in comfort and style. Sporting ample room to indulge their passion for fine arts and literature, yes, even with extended cruises in northern climes. Comfort and capability live here. Adept use of color and placement -- certainly demanding requirements in these owners’ literary and fine arts -- define restful areas throughout the ship’s multiple decks, with deep, welcoming couches, foot stools, plush seating, fine dining. Plus, a handy bar for afternoon and evening libations, indoors and out on the northern bounding main. Cleverly shaded from the afternoon glare or heat with triangular awnings, awaiting the evening’s charm, Northern Star is a satisfying way to celebrate friendly, glorious sunsets. Owners and charterers alike will appreciate the thoughtfulness designed into this beauty.
