Aquastar 70-74

Please contact us for a hard copy of the Aquastar 70+ boat report to be posted out to you. 

Are your thoughts in line with the following: - We have enjoyed weekends and annual holiday boating but the time has come to really enjoy ourselves and extended cruising is now our dream. The time has come to turn the dream into reality. We shall require an exceptional well found craft with a tough pedigree built by mariners who know how to satisfy professionals, she will have “pace and grace".

She will require 2000+ gallon fuel tanks for long range without refuelling, she will require a walk-in engine room, she will have bow and stern thruster, good water capacity and fitted water-maker, she will be fitted out to the best joiners' art in modern boat building. She will have a galley and laundry room you would be proud of at home. She will have comfortable guest cabins when your friends join you, indeed she will be your sea borne home. Now such a craft is available, built by Aqua-Star in the Channel Islands for yachtsmen with exploration and adventure in mind.

The Aqua-Star Explorer 70/74’ is designed to cruise the oceans of the world, for exploring Scandanavia, the Greek Islands, the great lakes of the Americas and the Caribbean. The Aqua-Star Explorer 70/74' will do it in style and comfort.

The design feature of the hull is a keel below the propeller so when exploring new cruiser grounds one has a built in safety feature. The keel also helps on directional stability, the transom detail has been designed to give considerable fuel saving over other hulls on the market and is a reason for many professionals successfully choosing the Aqua-Star hull form.

The attention to detail sets the Aqua-Star 70/74’ above the rest starting from the scale model supplied with every new Aqua-Star 70/74', the model was first produced to evaluate and test the outstanding concept, then we set our attention to all aspects of the design and construction. An insulated hull and deck, with standard equipment including; twin bow winches, anchors, a stern built in passarelle, a dinghy lift crane to store the dinghy clear of the stern platform, bow and stern thrusters, stern aft quality built in fairlead rollers. Unsurpassed build quality and a seductive line with such grace and pace one cannot help but feel anything less than an Aqua-Star 70/74' Explorer would not fulfil one's expectations.


40 Years of experience in well built GRP craft, the Aqua-Star Guernsey boatyard with continuous dedicated management and a past background as diverse as building the UK's largest GRP trawlers with 25 ton wet fish/hold tanks in the 1970’s, to 81' maxi yachts with 20 ton keels and 50 ton displacement which plough the oceans of the world in the 1980’s developing strong engineering knowledge. Second nature to us is dividing the craft up into five water tight bulkheads, engine room with water tight doors, proper bilge pumping arrangement and extra strong hulls. Working with interior designers like Ken Freivokh the yard is capable of crafting the best tradition style interiors as the most modern. The know-how acquired in the field above has been transferred to today's Aqua-Stars 70/74’ cruisers.

The passion for the last 20 years is building prestigious motor yachts with elegance for enjoyment and freedom. A sea going lifestyle unequalled in today’s mass produced world built by people who understand the sea, winning accolades for best quality fit out and good design.

The fit out is well designed and engineered with a walk in engine room so the floor of the saloon does not have to be taken up to do engine checks. There is a small work bench with fitted vice and place for engine spares and oils etc for orderly stowage, also a laundry area plus crew cabin in the MK II Layout.

Years of experience has produced what is perhaps the most fully equipped, owner operable motor yacht on the market today, expertly crafted, efficiently functional, stunningly beautiful and operable by two people. The Aqua-Star 70/74' has dual pilothouse doors, walk round teak side decks.

For a full width midship owners cabin is available with vertical window portlights for good natural light.

The helm now has a seating area opposite, behind aft, a great galley that is available with sliding doors as an option to enclose the bridge. A very comfortable crew cabin can be built into the port side aft, with its own entry, and to complement the “Motor cruiser of the Year”, Ken Freivokh has increased the level of detail to true “Super Yacht” status.
