Designed by Henry Scheel and meticulously crafted to the highest standards by the renowned Royal Huisman shipyard, the FOFTEIN STAR stands as a timeless and elegant ketch. Despite her classic appearance, characterized by graceful sheer lines, a fine clipper bow, and a bowsprit, she boasts a plethora of modern technical systems meticulously chosen for their reliability in global cruising. Owned since launch by an experienced yachtsman deeply passionate about diving and capturing marine life, particularly whales, every facet of her design prioritizes comfort, safety, and seaworthiness. Featuring a Scheel keel with an exceptionally shallow draft, she facilitates exploration and easy sail handling, thanks to hydraulic furling for all sails and electric winches.

Above deck, the cozy recessed cockpit is well-protected, and there’s plenty of deck space, especially for eating under main boom. The classic and charming interior is a testament to the meticulous attention devoted by Royal Huisman to achieving a traditional ambiance.  Adorned with beautifully paneled cherry wood and granite countertops, it enhances the yacht's simple elegance, warmth, and practicality, embodying the essence of a true Gentleman's yacht. 

In 2006 FOFTEIN STAR underwent an extensive refit at Royal Huisman, and her technical and cosmetical condition has remained since then as new. All systems are fully operational, making her ready for immediate cruising—a delight for any surveyor! She will be sold complete with all equipment on board, including a diving compressor, tanks, and much more. FOFTEIN STAR stands as a connoisseur's yacht, a timeless masterpiece, and is in exceptional overall condition.
