Formerly: (Project Scout)
Length: 247 ft • 75 m
Year: 2009
Builder: Lürssen • # 13651
Design: Espen Øino International
Interior: Pauline Nunns Associates

Northern Star the 75m explorer from Lürssen, built under the project name Scout, was launched in 2009 and recently arrived in Monaco.

She is so similar in design terms to the previous incarnation of Northern Star that we mistook her for Polar Star!

The resplendent paint work should have given the game away…

Finally a shot of the Saudi royal gigayacht Al Salamah - thanks to Thilo !

These photos were taken on a visit to the Lürssen Werft yard in Bremen Vegesack, back in 2001, in the pioneering days of digital cameras - I had a bit of fun with a Hockney style composite with the low res originals.

Al Salamah was back at MWB Bremen, in Bremerhaven, in 2007 - did anyone happen to record the visit ?

Thilo also has a question which had me stumped - I'll post it in the comments.
