Blue Star was built in 1993 with a steel hull and superstructure by Keith Marine in Palatka Florida. Keith Marine was well known for constructing large steel commercial vessels and later became known as Newcastle Marine. Blue Star has recently gone through extensive updates and service and is just completing her ABS survey. This yacht features 5 staterooms accommodating 11 guests and 9 crew, has transatlantic range and offers large volume for extensive cruising.

A 65" Samsung 4k TV retracts from the ceiling and is easily stowed leaving space for prized artwork to be displayed during more formal gatherings. Design is classic English and was completed by Nicholson Interiors of the UK in Southhampton.

Bridge Deck and Sky Lounge
From the cockpit on the stern, there is a central stairway that walks up 2 levels to the bridge deck. This level provides accommodations for both indoor and outdoor entertainment as well as the pilot house and captains quarters. Starting on the aft bridge deck, there is a large outdoor dining table to starboard and built in bench lounge seating to port with outdoor AV equipment and a service bar to entertain. This outdoor lounging and dining area can be closed off by isinglass enclosures which keep the guests comfortable from the elements. There are full walk around teak decks on either side of the bridge deck which take you to another guest seating and sun pad area forward of the bridge. This forward area was truly ahead of it's time in design and is now a standard feature on many modern yachts. The sky lounge features a 55" Samsung TV with surround sound, Blu-ray and Apple TV, decorative mahogany flooring with lacewood walls and built in cabinetry, a game table for 4 to starboard, couch, love seat and 2 arm chars with coffee table for more casual lounging. As you walk forward through the atrium, descend down a spiral stairway mid-ship, or deadhead to port.
The sundeck offers private seating with oversized sunpad for soaking in the sun or lounging around. Teak decks are in serviceable condition and recently sanded. In the center is a room composed of the base of the mast which was previously used as storage for fishing and dive gear, but could be repurposed as a spa, massage room or bar.
