About this 122ft. CRN

NORDIC STAR – HISTORY & CONSTRUCTION: One of the many appeals of the 37.2m NORDIC STAR, built in 1978 by Italian yard CRN, is her rich history that includes movie stars and more recently royalty. Lying in Abu Dhabi the yacht is now for sale for the first time in many years. NORDIC STAR was originally commissioned by actress Virna Lisi, Italy’s answer to Marilyn Monroe, who 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. Following her launch, NORDIC STAR played host to countless numbers of both Europe and Hollywood’s A-list celebrities, including Frank Sinatra, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis. NORDIC STAR was Lisi’s place to escape, to entertain, to enjoy. Today, this classic yacht is as beautiful as she was back then. The sheer elegance of her lines are 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 size and 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 of Dubai 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 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 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. An ideal investment for the discerning owner or collector NORDIC STAR is a unique prospect in today’s superyacht sales fleet.
