The magnificent Stella Maris is the latest high profile addition to the Burgess sales fleet.At 72.1 metres and 2,114 gross tonnes, Stella Maris is the largest custom superyacht to date from the young Italian yard Viareggio Superyachts (VSY).
A villa style yacht
Built by Viareggio Superyachts and ready for immediate delivery to a new owner, Stella Maris is a state-of-the-art superyacht with a striking, masculine profile and an impressive volume.
With an exterior design by Espen Øino, interior by Michela Reverberi and naval architecture by Laurent Giles Naval Architects, the brief for the project was to create a villa style yacht that would be home in any location.
Stella Maris’ lines are radical to some degree, barely hinting at the split deck arrangement of her interior, but instantly proclaiming the supremacy of glass. The idea, says Øino, was to ‘hit the perfect balance between form and function, innovation and technology, comfort and aesthetics’. Her bold, masculine hull colour, DuPont Metallic Grey, balances the height of the topsides with the off-white superstructure.
Stella Maris’ split-deck interior allows for an exceptionally high 2.7m ceiling in the guest areas, creating an unprecedented sense of space that is exacerbated by floor-to-ceiling, soundproofed glass windows. Michela Reverberi’s consciously uncluttered, contemporary interior helps to emphasise the light and space and has plenty of scope for personalisation by a new owner.
The interior design is the work of Michela Reverberi who has created a clean, refined atmosphere using natural stones, high quality fabrics and rare woods. To reinforce the link with nature and the feeling of a villa, it was important for VSY to include a living garden on board. A space aft of the main deck, which extends from the main salon to the upper deck salon, on the starboard side accommodates various plant life.
Stella Maris can accommodate 14 guests in seven cabins. The forward part of Stella Maris‘ main deck is given over to the guest suites: four doubles and two twins. Almost identical in layout, their differences lie mainly in the choice of furnishings and fabrics.
Above the bridge is the owner’s private deck which includes an 88 sqm apartment, a private terrace and sunbathing area with sofas. The owners can enjoy complete privacy as well as an unblemished view of the horizon from the bed!
The lower deck features a beach club aft, which is adjacent to a teak finished garage, which houses custom open and limo tenders. When the garage is not in use, the space extends the beach club area to a total of 164sqm.
Such a full volume yacht surprisingly has its quiet spaces – the best a hidden area on the top deck. Here, forward of the drama of two pools and the helideck is a semi-sheltered oasis, with huge lounges embraced by the stylist mast base.
“The ideal owner for Stella Maris would be someone who loves understated elegance, exclusivity and luxury. Somebody with a real love for the sea and respects the environment,” says VSY director Cristiana Longarini.
Stella Maris is the perfect retreat at the top of the world. The outstanding Stella Maris has been listed for sale by Burgess. Asking price: 75 000 000 €.
