Based year-round in Phuket, Thailand, classic motor yacht NORTHERN SUN offers the ideal platform for adventurous charters in Southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean. Originally launched in 1976 as an ice-class research vessel, NORTHERN SUN has been thoroughly modernised and updated with an extensive rebuild completed in 2007. The yacht you see today, while providing contemporary comforts, still embraces her past, and her handsome exterior and characterful interiors blend new and old seamlessly. From her classic blue hull and original windlasses to her antique rugs and ship models, exotic artefacts and fine artwork, NORTHERN SUN exudes a sort of sentimental charm.
Onboard, guests can choose to entertain or relax in one of three interior lounges or opt for the al fresco lifestyle as you kick-back in the sun deck Jacuzzi, dine under the stars on her aft deck or sip sundowners in the foredeck chill out zone. As night falls, retire to one of her 6 luxurious suites, including an elegant full beam master stateroom with king size bed, private library and office, and an ensuite with Jaccuzzi bath. While there is plenty to enjoy on board, NORTHERN SUN is a yacht with adventure at her heart. A staggering 12,000 nautical mile range allows the yacht to cruise off the beaten track and her extensive stash of tenders and water toys, including Laser sailing dinghys, Seabobs and diving gear (for rendezvous diving only), facilitate local exploration wherever you are anchored. Alongside this, a carefully selected crew that includes seasoned professionals from both the local area and around the world, provide the highest level of service as well as a command of the local languages and in-depth knowledge of the areas NORTHERN SUN cruises.
