FIVE STAR IS A VERY RARE FIND IN TODAY'S YACHTING MARKET. She has benefitted from a major refit between late 2020 and today. Her impeccable paint job shows off her glorious lines. FIVE STAR is a true head turner no matter where you venture.

As a long time licensed Florida yacht broker, I have seen great yachts for sale and I have seen yachts that need to be put out of their misery. FIVE STAR is a true pleasure to step aboard and to spend time aboard. She shows her Dutch heritage very well and is a truly elegant lady awaiting a new benefactor.

You may preview her most recent upgrades at the end of this listing. She is truly well found and ready to go. Health issues have created an amazing opportunity for another family to create unforgettable memories. Come take a look and bring your bathing costumes.


Located 15 minutes from Fort Lauderdale Airport. Curtesy showings  are available during the Miami Boat show. Offers encouraged.

As soon as you step aboard FIVE STAR, you are immediately struck by the true beauty of this exquisite yacht. If you have boarded via the completely rebuilt hydraulic swim platform you will see your reflection in her paint work. ( IMRON 2021) Up 3 teak clad stairs located to port and you are in the heart of the social entertainment area. New tasteful designer cockpit upholstery ensures comfy seating or sun bathing. The large U shaped seating also converts to a great sun bathing pad. This area has the "right stuff “to make entertaining a breeze with the built-in ice maker, sink and a refrigerator at an easy reach.

The aft center of the seating lifts up to show a user friendly set of steps leading down to the Laundry room, the spare store room and the engine room. There is ample storage outboard on both sides in this area as well as separate washer and dryer. Heading forward one enters through the watertight door into the engine room filled with 2 very well mannered Cats.

Back up on deck we can open the 2 highly polished stainless steel framed glass doors which will nest bringing the inside saloon/helm deck and the aft cockpit into one enjoyable space.

The addition of a new 44' Samsung TV (2021), Polk Sound bar(2021), and internal speakers (2021), one may dance the night away. An L shaped settee to starboard has a beautiful table with Burl accents and to port is the entertainment center. Tasteful ultra leather seating, new designer drapes, and carpet (2021) all complement the wonderful amount of natural light provided by large side windows and of course the total windshield across the front of the pilothouse. (New wiper blades 2021) As FIVE STAR handles like a sports car it is only befitting that she should have an opening convertible top. The center window in the windshield is also power operated and will open at the touch of a finger.

FIVE STAR'S helm deck is up one step from the bridge deck saloon. A custom Captain's chair and adjacent forward facing ultra leather seating means a couple of your favorite peeps can enjoy watching you the master at work.
