OverviewASTERIA was built and launched by the Greek shipyard ANASTASSIADES & TSORTANIDES in 1970 as an ocean-going rescue tug. In 2000/2002 she was converted into a world-class expedition yacht by Northport Engineering in New Zealand. The owner at the time wanted a vessel that he could cruise the world without sacrificing style and luxury. Subsequently, she may look tough on the outside but inside she is bright, comfortable, and inviting. After almost two decades of cruising from pole to pole, she was purchased by the current owner and returned to New Zealand in 2019 for another extensive refit where she was nominated for a Boat International Refit award. The French firm “Charles Zana” redesigned the interior with a contemporary flare, beautifully updating her look while maintaining her classic appeal.
Not stopping at the interior, the refit added a spa pool covered by a huge bimini on the top deck, new paint, decks and a laundry list of other subtle aesthetic improvements.
Mechanically she is in tip-top shape. In 2022, she underwent a full main engine rebuild and generator service. Along with a host of other updates and improvements. In January 2023 she was back in the shipyard having her Quantum zero-speed stabilizers serviced, a new shaft seal and rebuilt deck cranes. The current owner is dedicated to maintaining the vessel to the highest standards and understands that for ASTERIA to travel to the ends of the earth she needs to be in top shape.
ASTERIA has had a long history of amazing voyages including The Northwest Passage, Antarctica, the South Pacific and everywhere in between. In 2021 she won the Boat International Voyager Award for her voyage from Central America to Alaska.
Commercially registered, ASTERIA has enjoyed a reputation as a world-class charter vessel able to charter in some of the most remote places on earth but equally at home in St. Barts and Monaco.
Stylish, robust and ready for anything, ASTERIA is the vessel for that special owner who is perpetually asking “what’s over the horizon, what’s next”.
