Overview

Offering Italian style and craftsmanship, proven reliability, and a well–subscribed charter following, STARFIRE would make an excellent yacht for both the experienced as well as the first time yacht owner. 

STARFIRE is an exceptionally well-built yacht that combines the Benetti pedigree and signature style & design of Francois Zuretti.  Offering an abundance of accommodation and entertainment areas for the Owners and their guests, STARFIRE passengers enjoy 6 staterooms, 2 salons, 2 dining rooms, and a large number of outdoor features, including a beach club lazarette as well as a touch & go helipad.  She is comfortable at sea or at anchor with Quantum Zero-Speed stabilizers. 

The style is predominately Art Deco with a slight influence from the Orient.  Every space in the boat is designed to benefit from natural light and neutral colors, providing a comfortable yet luxurious setting for almost any taste.  It is no coincidence that 80% of the charters are multiple repeat guests that come back year after year.
 

Her layout is well planned for guest enjoyment and crew work, allowing guests to comfortably use the entire boat while 13 crew efficiently plan and execute the abundant daily activities, meals, and service.  Loved by guests and crew alike, STARFIRE experiences longevity that is far above the industry norm, averaging 4 years per crewmember.

A true displacement motor yacht that was built expressly with long range world cruising in mind, STARFIRE has completed many ocean passages, logging two transatlantic voyages for each of the last 12 years and one transpacific voyage.  In fact, her reliability and continuity is one of her greatest selling features.  Under the current command, she has never missed a trip and has continually served both the owner and her charter guests with an ambitious and demanding schedule – last year alone, they registered 213 days at sea. 

Without doubt one of Benetti's flagship motor yachts, STARFIRE has clearly stood the test of time and is testament to what can be produced by the Benetti shipyard.

Not for Sale to US residents while in US waters.

Accommodations

Spacious, bright and airy, the master stateroom is full beam, featuring a California king-sized bed, a private lounge area and office, his and her bathrooms, separate dressing areas, several nice seating areas and large oval windows for a fantastic view of the ocean.  There is a space for reading or relaxing in plush armchairs as you watch TV.   The ensuite bathroom has an oversized spa tub with warm honey onyx fittings and a separate shower.

The VIP cabin was designed for those who want a luxurious room with a view on the Upper Deck.  Polished wood, tasteful art, a complete entertainment system, full marble bathroom, and a stateroom king-sized bed; all combine to make this stateroom comfortable and beautiful for VIP guests.

Four additional guest rooms reside on the lower deck - the two queen cabins and two single cabins are beautifully finished with polished wood, beautiful stone, and light fabrics.  All staterooms have en-suite bathrooms, desks, and separate entertainment systems.

Sun Deck

The forward area of the sundeck is a serene place boasting warm teak decks, a raised semi-circular seating area to relax, and a table for resting trays of afternoon cocktails.  The after deck has a large sunning area that can be shaded when desired and features a Jacuzzi dip pool, an outdoor cinema, covered al fresco dining area, and a full bar with built in stools.  

The center part of the sundeck provides an air-conditioned area for a massage parlor, day head & shower, and central staircase to the lower deck.   There is also some additional storage lockers and firefighting lockers to port and starboard.

If needed this deck also has a large helicopter-landing pad with fixing points and removable railings. 

Upper Deck

The upper deck is home to the pilothouse from which the captain controls and maneuvers STARFIRE.  This room features an array of modern navigation and communication equipment, flanked by wing stations for docking on each side deck. The wheelhouse offers 2 leather sofas and a helmsman’s position. Two desks (port & starboard) and a spacious chart table amidships provide ample workstations and can double as the ship’s office. The Captain’s cabin is conveniently located nearby. 

 

Just outside of the wheelhouse is a 2nd exterior semi-circular seating area with a table, which is popular both underway and at anchor.  From this area, you can easily move forward to the foredeck or down either side deck to the lower main deck.

 

Moving aft of the pilothouse towards the skylounge, one passes the upper pantry, crew stairwell, central guest stairwell, the VIP cabin, and a day head.

 

A vast skylounge spans the full width of the yacht in this area and includes a working fireplace, spacious seating, 50” flat screen TV, and a fully equipped wet bar (port aft). Glass sliding doors lead to a fully enclosed formal upper dining area with large table. This area is enclosed with glass walls inviting an incredible amount of natural light; these glass panels can be opened to allow al-fresco dining as well.

 

Further aft is a cozy and comfortable upper aft deck with loose teak furniture for relaxing and enjoying the view.  

NOTE: The upper aft deck is used for the storage of the yacht’s tender and jetskis during major ocean crossings.  For normal guest operation, the tender and jetskis are stored on the bow.

Main Deck

Starting on the main aft deck, guests will find a covered seating area and dining table for elegant al fresco dining while at anchor. 

An open staircase to port leads down to the swimming platform and beach club for daily watersports, including the 15 foot inflatable tender, seabobs, jetskis, kayaks, trampoline, waterskis, and more.

Glass sliding doors lead inside to the main salon from the aft deck where one will relax with elegant furniture including hand woven chairs, Italian sofas, and cashmere throws.  Basking in the light from the large windows and enjoying the drinks from the full service bar, guests can socialize or relax alone in this intimate salon.

The next room forward is the beautiful formal dining room with a circular table that seats 12 guests and storage for a multitude of serving equipment and place settings.  The main deck guest entrance lobby is nearby to starboard.  This lobby has a convenient day head and stairs leading up to the upper deck. 

The main galley is to port with an adjoining pantry and crew service area.  This large, efficient commercial kitchen allows the chef and sous chef to create incredible meals for 12 guests while simultaneously meeting the high demands of the captain and crew week after week.

The Owner’s cabin is full beam with a large his and hers bathroom, spacious dressing rooms and a separate study.

 

Walkaround decks lead forward on either side of the vessel to access the bow. The bow holds the yacht’s 2nd tender (or rescue boat) with independent crane along with 2 waverunners. A boson’s store is located in the forward part of the superstructure along with air-handling units and escape hatches from the crew’s quarters and the Owner’s cabin.

Lower Deck

All the crew accommodations are situated forward with refrigerated and dry storage located below along with the ship’s laundry. There is a crew galley and spacious dining area to starboard and the crew mess is to port. There are six (6) twin double staterooms with en-suite bath facilities for crew while the captain’s cabin is located near the pilothouse.

From the crew area, the engine room is reached via the control room and is extremely spacious and well laid out. 

At the aft part of the lower deck, the 4 guest cabins are positioned around a central lobby that is accessed from the main salon. 

At the stern of the boat on the lower swim deck is the beach club lazarette/swimming platform with a dayhead and shower room, steering compartment and general deck stores. The swimming platform opens hydraulically and forms a beach platform.  This area is accessed from the stairs off the port side of the aft deck.
