The recently launched Star is a 137-foot (41.9-meter) Kingship Classic with exterior and contemporary interior styling, naval architecture and engineering by Dutch design firm Vripack. The yacht made her debut at a luxury showcase in Hainan, China, after a trip that took her from the Kingship shipyard on the Pearl River to the southern island of Sanya. Built with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure for long-range cruising, she has a maximum range of about 4,500 nm at 10 knots. Due to her vocation as an explorer, she is equipped with top-of-the line stabilization systems for maximum comfort at sea and a zero-speed system to minimize rolling while at anchor, and she complies with MCA and Lloyd’s standards. Central agent YPI Asia, an arm of Yachting Partners International (YPI), introduced the yacht at the Hainan Rendez-Vous in April, a well-attended affair by the world’s top shipyards. Another one of Kingship’s most anticipated projects is the Green Voyager, due to launch in 2013.
