CRN Nordic Star on auction: unique opportunity to own iconic classic


In a period that has been noticeably short on glamour, and De Valk Yacht Brokers are pleased to announce the auction for one of the most iconic classical superyachts in the global fleet. Launched by CRN in 1978, Nordic Star was built for the renowned actress Virna Lisi, Italy's answer to Marilyn Monroe.

In addition to the alluring leading lady who originally commissioned her, Nordic Star hosted a star-studded cast of friends such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Anthony Quinn. While having the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of such famous film names is an attraction in itself, the sense of stepping back in time when boarding Nordic Star becomes very personal as you see, touch and feel the sumptuous Italian fittings, hand-carved woods, antique furnishings and artwork.

Throughout her lifespan the yacht has been meticulosity maintained to ensure that her original bespoke ambience – Lisi even had every piece of furniture below hip height perfectly rounded off to protect her stockings – is fully retained. An exceptional piece of maritime heritage, Nordic Star has been so well kept that she actually appreciates in value as time goes by. And her unique sense of elegance was fully preserved during a comprehensive four-year refit completed in 2012 at Amico. Today the yacht embodies deluxe 21st-century living with discreet modern additions such as zero speed stabilizers and powerful entertainment systems ensuring that old me zero speed stabilizers and powerful entertainment systems ensuring that old meets new in the best possible way.
