We are excited to reveal the name of our first of three new, all-suite, power yachts as Star Pride. Star Pride, the first yacht to enter the fleet in May 2014, will spend its first season in Europe offering exciting new voyages, which are expected to go on sale May 14, 2013.
The new power yachts will showcase many signature Windstar experiences, including the line’s famous deck barbecue, the open Bridge policy, and the celebrated sail-away party.
The addition of the three new yachts has allowed the creation of Global Windstar, the line’s fleet expansion and new product development program. Increasing the size of the fleet enables Windstar to cruise a global set of itineraries to new destinations, such as Wind Spirit’s much anticipated return to Tahiti and Star Pride’s European voyage collection which will include new places in Europe such as a voyage in the Black Sea. In the future, Global Windstar will provide opportunities to visit to Asia and South America.
The new power yachts are identical, with a guest capacity of 212 in 106 suites. At 10,000 gross tons, each yacht is 440 feet long with a breadth of 63 feet and six passenger decks. As the three yachts enter the fleet, they will all undergo a Windstar branded renovation.
Help us welcome the first of our new “stars” to the fleet by commenting below and wishing Star Pride many successful sailings.
