Rebuilt for fun and adventure, NORTHERN SUN will escort you through the world's remotest oceans in absolute luxury.

Launched in 1976, she began life as an ice-class marine research vessel and underwent a complete rebuild, transforming her into the luxury superyacht that she is today. Primarily based in South East Asia, she is the ultimate exploration vessel.

Impressive leisure and entertainment systems make her the perfect charter yacht for socialising with family and friends. The main deck is entirely dedicated to entertainment, with a vast light and airy main deck lounge and an entertainment lounge with games table and piano.

For those looking for relaxation, there is a sky lounge with an open air dining area overlooking the aft deck. This is the perfect place to spend a leisurely afternoon or romantic evening with its ample seating and dining areas. A central staircase leads down to the extended swim platform and fabulous assortment of watertoys for those looking for some activity.

While the aft deck is a favourite spot for al fresco dining, the foredeck lounge area is perfect for cocktails during quiet evenings at anchor while sharing a beautiful sunset. The private sun deck offers a jacuzzi, panoramic views, and most importantly, solitude.

NORTHERN SUN has a warm and welcoming Asian inspired interior, featuring sumptuous tropical woods, hand woven rugs and a warm colour palette of soft furnishings. The lower deck features an impressive formal dining area and an adjoining library. The lower deck also accommodates up to 12 guests in six well appointed cabins, including a large master cabin, three double cabins and two twin cabins.

NORTHERN SUN holds a charter license for Myanmar (Burma)
