This Martin Francis’ magnificent design was originally built by Trehard in France. DARK STAR OF LONDON represents a fine example of what is an extremely well-designed yacht offering fast, comfortable sailing at the same time as luxury accommodation. The flexibility of her cabin layout is ideal for family groups where separate berths are required and her enormous cockpit can easily sit 12 people at mealtimes. Her open deck space, with flush-fitting hatches makes moving around on deck easy and allows plenty of space for her large sunbathing cushion, as well as for deck games ! Access to the water is also a pleasure via an electrically operated, hydraulic aft door, which becomes a spacious bathing platform.
Rebuilt in 2000 at Camper & Nicholson in Gosport, UK. Nothing was left unturned, even the interior benefited a complete redesign. In 2007/2008 she went through an extensive refit in Trehard. Then again with her current owner who acquired her in 2010. Since then she has benefitted from an extensive program of improvements. DARK STAR OF LONDON is a truly modern, fast and extremely comfortable sloop.
DARK STAR OF LONDON has been cruising the Western Mediterranean as well as the Caribbean. During this period, she has done a limited number of charters, having been crewed by a professional Captain and Chef couple with a Deckhand and an occasional Stewardess.
