STARSHIP has been carefully maintained since new by several prominent yachting families. Accommodations include 5 staterooms comfortably berthing 12 guests and 7 heads including a day head on the main deck and bridge deck. In 2003/2004, she had an $8m refit including new interior furnishings, full paint job, and 8’ sundeck extension, and new 3512B Caterpillar engines were installed (2003). In 2006, new Quantum Marine Zero Speed stabilizers were installed. In 2015, a $2m refit was done including full paint and interior soft goods for the main salon. Her refit in 2020 featured a skylounge remodel, bottom paint, 2 x new 10-ton chillers installed, and many more. See complete list below.

She cruises at 11 – 13 knots with a maximum of 17 knots and her KaMeWa waterjet propulsion gives her a very smooth ride with a 7’ (2.1 meter) draft. STARSHIP is ready to go cruising with her new owners.
