Motor Yacht Northern Star launched by Lurssen

By superyachts.com

The latest launch from German shipyard Lurssen is the 75 metre giant Northern Star, sure to jump into the Superyachts.com Top 100 upon its delivery in October.

The six-deck superyacht was designed with the object of world-wide extensive and extended cruising even in cold climates, and has been built to require only limited port stops.

Known by the codename Project Scout during her construction, the luxury long-range expedition-capable vessel need only complete final outfitting and sea trials before she is delivered to her owner in October later this year.

Her design features a sizeable beamy hull of steel and an aluminium superstructure of traditional appearance from Oeino as a reflection of the owner’s ideas.

She offers immense outdoor spaces aft, forward and on the sundeck which ensure plenty of seating is available for al fresco dining and lavish lounging.

Inside, the super yacht displays an interior reflective of a grand country house with styling by Pauline Nunns and the owners. This design combination also worked on the previous Northern Star.

The luxury vessel has accommodation for 12 guests who benefit from the advanced sound and vibration features that ensure quite running of the yacht, and her ice strengthened hull design and stabilising system that allow for extreme comfort running and at anchor.

Motor yacht Northern Star is powered by twin Caterpillar 2,000kW diesel engines that allow a maximum speed of 17 knots and a cruising speed of 15.

Her owner plans to make the yacht available on the charter market following her delivery at a weekly price from €600,000 plus expenses.

She has already joined the charter fleet at Moran Yachts and will be available in the Caribbean this winter and the Mediterranean in summer 2010.

Superyacht 'Northern Star' Set to Return to the 2015 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show

  • Share this on Facebook

  • Share via Email

By Editorial Team   9 October 2015

The award-winning 76m/248ft Lürssen superyacht 'Northern Star' will be one of the most celebrated charter yachts to appear at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show , taking place later this year from 5th to 9th November 2015.

An established sight on the international yacht show circuit since her launch in 2009, Northern Star is guaranteed to make one of the most highly anticipated returns to the Fort Lauderdale event and will star alongside another Lürssen model, the 95m/312ft motor yacht Kismet . 

Northern Star's appeal lies in its combination of luxurious amenities, including a glass elevator, movie theatre and swimming pool, and the capability to withstand worldwide cruising conditions and climes. She was recognised at the 2010 World Superyacht Awards as the best displacement motor yacht. 

Designed by Espen Oeino, the exterior boasts a strongly raked bow and high forward parapet to handle the rough waters of the Northern Hemisphere. Yet, with large but well protected windows, Northern Star appears compact and harmoniously proportioned.

The unique country manor interior, designed by Pauline Nunns, features a colour palette of coral, gold and cream in the communal areas, and white and sky blue in the master suite and sky lounge.

Vital to Northern Star’s performance is the ice-class hull and ultra-modern stabilization system, which lessens the roll motion effect for an ultra-comfortable yacht charter experience. She can reach a maximum speed of 18 knots and cruises at 15 knots, powered by 2 CAT engines.

Northern Star comfortably sleeps up to 12 guests in six staterooms, including a master suite, three double cabins and two twin cabins, and can carry up to 22 crew on board. 

For more information on other charter yachts attending the 2015 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in November, please contact your preferred charter broker .

Alternatively take the time to compare all  luxury yachts for charter in Florida .

The motor yacht's appeal lies in its combination of luxurious amenities and the capability to withstand worldwide cruising conditions.

Richard Pims

Capt. Richard Pims also doubles up as an amazing Chef on board Northern Star. Richard was born in Queens, New York and grew up in New Jersey, not far from the shore. He attended Johnson & Wales University studying Culinary Arts. As a young child he loved all sports, games and pastimes, especially hockey, golf, hiking, climbing, fishing and sailing. Richard soon became hooked on sailing. From a very young age he would sail with family and friends, and then he regularly sailed with an uncle throughout the rest of his childhood. Having qualified with a bachelor's degree in Culinary Arts and Related Services at University Richard went on to work as a Chef in some of the finest restaurants in New York and as a result brings a high level of sophistication to all aspects on onboard yacht hospitality, particularly by preparing world class meals onboard for charter guests. Richard says he is very comfortable with silver service dining, due to his culinary background, but he is very adaptable to more casual dining usually enjoyed on board a sailing yacht. From a Captain's perspective he really enjoys to see guests active and getting involved with sailing during the charter, as well as other adventures by water or on land. His favourite yachting destination was the San Blas Islands in Panama, which is a group of untouched islands, with indigenous Indians living a traditional lifestyle. It was one of the most amazing places he's ever been, and loves that he can experience these exotic places as a Captain on a charter yacht. His motto became "Don't wait to live your dreams"! Richard enjoys spending his spare time reading, fishing, live music, tennis, scuba diving and travel. His friends describe him as Driven, Adventurous and Funny. All great characteristics for a Yacht Charter Captain - and Chef!!

NORTHERN STAR

Northern star yacht charter, northern star yacht description.

Come aboard and experience the luxury of Northern Star. This 76' (23m) modern cutter-rigged sloop was designed by Ocke Mannerfelt and handcrafted by the Hinckley Company in 1993 with a traditional old world aesthetic that features teak decking, beautiful butterfly hatches and custom mahogany interiors throughout. With her graceful overhangs and elegant sheerline, she combines state-of-the-art performance, power, and control to create a truly modern and timeless classic. Northern Star is one of the finest yachts in the world and with her carbon furling mast and hydraulic winches, she offers true single-handed capacity underway and an experience steeped in the rich traditions of sailing the open seas. A 2014 refit included new luxury soft furnishings and bed linens, new table ware, fresh exterior varnish, all brass refinished and all systems checked and serviced. NORTHERN STAR accommodates 6 guests in three cabins. The interior is fully air-conditioned and headroom is 8' to 6' throughout The spacious Master Suite is forward with a king v-berth, hanging locker and private head with a separate stall shower. There is also a comfortable seat and a writing desk on the starboard side. A center hallway runs aft to the salon. Aft and to port of the master stateroom is an elegant VIP Suite that was originally planned for the King and Queen of Norway who frequented the yacht. This cabin is an intimate oasis featuring his and her twins, ample storage and a private head with a stall shower. Also aft of the master on the port side is a common head with shower. On the starboard side are two well-appointed guest cabins, each with over and under single berths, a bureau and hanging locker. These two cabins share the common head and shower.

Offered by DMA Yachting, the majestic charter yacht NORTHERN STAR is a 76 ft sailboat. The primary distinction of NORTHERN STAR are her impeccable styling and interconnection with the sea. NORTHERN STAR spends the winter season in the Bahamas. She was completed by recognized shipbuilder Hinckley in 1993. An elegant refit was delivered in 2016. The ingenious yacht layout features 3 generous cabins and easily accommodates a maximum of 6 guests.

NORTHERN STAR is classified primarily as a sailboat.

The sailboat features Yanmar Northern Lights Generator engines and a generator.

Most expenses are deducted from an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), a fund that is added on top of the charter price. The expenses, such as provisioning, fuel, marina fees, are deducted from the APA. The APA is based on the price of the yacht and ranges from 15% (crewed sailing yachts) to 30% (motor yachts with higher fuel consumption). You can actively control these expenses in your preference sheet (local vs. imported beverages) and by choice of itinerary (distances traveled). The remainder of the APA is returned after charter.">Price Terms: Plus Expenses

Lurssen MADSUMMER For Charter Profile

Integrity and the relentless pursuit of the deal defines Moran Yacht & Ship - I am grateful that you were on this journey with me. This magical machine KISMET is the second yacht I’ve had built with Moran Yacht & Ship. KISMET has brought joy, hope, and the gift of discovery to many lives - including my own. You have made this world a better place! Owner, KISMET
By way of background, my business interests include controlling stakes in 3 publicly traded companies which operate vessels in the 500 to 5000dwt range. On average, one new vessel a year would be added to the fleet. As a result, I have access to in-house marine architects, engineers and construction supervisors. Consequently, when I decided to build my first large motor yacht, I did not feel I needed the services of a company like Moran Yacht & Ship. In any event, I was persuaded to let them negotiate on my behalf while I simultaneously held discussions with other building options. Moran Yacht & Ship understands yachts, their incredibly complex systems, and what constitutes a practical solution to various owners’ ideas. In short, I would not consider building another yacht without engaging Moran Yacht & Ship to provide the services they are so good in delivering. Former Owner, NORTHERN STAR

Hot on the trail of 56 superyachts owned by Russian oligarchs and subject to seizure

French authorities have seized the yacht Amore Vero linked to Igor Sechin, a Putin ally who runs Russian oil giant Rosneft, as part of EU sanctions over Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

  • The Associated Press

The massive superyacht Dilbar stretches one-and-a-half football fields in length, about as long as a World War I dreadnought. It boasts two helipads, berths for more than 130 people and a 25-meter swimming pool long enough to accommodate another whole superyacht.

Dilbar was launched in 2016 at a reported cost of more than $648 million. Five years on, its purported owner, the Kremlin-aligned Russian oligarch Alisher Usmanov, was already dissatisfied and sent the vessel to a German shipyard last fall for a retrofit reportedly costing another couple hundred million dollars.

That’s where she lay in drydock on Thursday when the United States and European Union announced economic sanctions against Usmanov — a metals magnate and early investor in Facebook — over his ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin and in retaliation for the invasion of Ukraine.

“We are joining with our European allies to find and seize your yachts, your luxury apartments, your private jets,” President Joe Biden said during his State of the Union speech Tuesday night, addressing the oligarchs. “We are coming for your ill-begotten gains.”

But actually seizing the behemoth boats could prove challenging. Russian billionaires have had decades to shield their money and assets in the West from governments that might try to tax or seize them.

Several media outlets reported Wednesday that German authorities had impounded Dilbar. But a spokeswoman for Hamburg state’s economy ministry told The Associated Press no such action had yet been taken because it had been unable to establish ownership of the yacht, which is named for Usmanov’s mother.

Dilbar is flagged in the Cayman Islands and registered to a holding company in Malta, two secretive banking havens where the global ultra-rich often park their wealth.

Still, in the industry that caters to the exclusive club of billionaires and centimillionaires that can afford to buy, crew and maintain superyachts, it is often an open secret who owns what.

Working with the U.K.-based yacht valuation firm VesselsValue, the AP compiled a list of 56 superyachts — generally defined as luxury vessels exceeding 79 feet in length — believed to be owned by a few dozen Kremlin-aligned oligarchs, seaborne assets with a combined market value estimated at more than $5.4 billion.

The AP then used two online services — VesselFinder and MarineTraffic — to plot the last known locations of the yachts as relayed by their onboard tracking beacons.

While many are still anchored at or near sun-splashed playgrounds in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, more than a dozen were underway to or had already arrived in remote ports in small nations such as the Maldives and Montenegro, potentially beyond the reach of Western sanctions. Three are moored in Dubai, where many wealthy Russians have vacation homes.

Another three had gone dark, their transponders last pinging just outside the Bosporus in Turkey — gateway to the Black Sea and the southern Russian ports of Sochi and Novorossiysk.

Graceful, a German-built Russian-flagged superyacht believed to belong to Putin, left a repair yard in Hamburg on Feb. 7, two weeks before Russia invaded Ukraine. It is now moored in the Russian Baltic port of Kaliningrad, beyond the reach of Western sanctions imposed against him this past week.

Some Russian oligarchs appear to have not gotten the memo to move their superyachts, despite weeks of public warnings of Putin’s planned invasion.

French authorities seized the superyacht Amore Vero on Thursday in the Mediterranean resort town of La Ciotat. The boat is believed to belong to Igor Sechin, a Putin ally who runs Russian oil giant Rosneft, which has been on the U.S. sanctions list since Russia annexed Crimea in 2014.

The French Finance Ministry said in a statement that customs authorities boarded the 289-foot Amore Vero and discovered its crew was preparing for an urgent departure, even though planned repair work wasn’t finished. The $120 million boat is registered to a company that lists Sechin as its primary shareholder.

On Saturday, Italian financial police in the port of San Remo seized the 132-foot superyacht Lena, which is flagged in the British Virgin Islands. Authorities said the boat belongs to Gennady Timchenko, an oligarch close to Putin and among those sanctioned by the European Union. With an estimated net worth of $16.2 billion, Timchenko is the founder of the Volga Group, which specializes in investments in energy, transport and infrastructure assets.

The 213-foot Lady M was also seized by the Italians while moored in the Riviera port town of Imperia. In a tweet announcing the seizure on Friday, a spokesman for Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi said the comparatively modest $27 million vessel was the property of sanctioned steel baron Alexei Mordashov, listed as Russia’s wealthiest man with a fortune of about $30 billion.

But Mordashov’s upsized yacht, the 464-foot Nord, was safely at anchor on Friday in the Seychelles, a tropical island chain in the Indian Ocean not under the jurisdiction of U.S. or EU sanctions. Among the world’s biggest superyachts, Nord has a market value of $500 million.

Since Friday, Italy has seized $156 million in luxury yachts and villas in some of its most picturesque destinations, including Sardinia, the Ligurian coast and Lake Como.

Most of the Russians on the annual Forbes list of billionaires have not yet been sanctioned by the United States and its allies, and their superyachts are still cruising the world’s oceans.

The evolution of oligarch yachts goes back to the tumultuous decade after the 1991 fall of the Soviet Union, as state oil and metals industries were sold off at rock-bottom prices, often to politically connected Russian businessmen and bankers who had provided loans to the new Russian state in exchange for the shares.

Russia’s nouveau riche began buying luxury yachts similar in size and expense to those owned by Silicon Valley billionaires, heads of state and royalty. It’s a key marker of status in Moscow and St. Petersburg, and size matters.

“No self-respecting Russian oligarch would be without a superyacht,” said William Browder, a U.S.-born and now London-based financier who worked in Moscow for years before becoming one of the Putin regime’s most vocal foreign critics. “It’s part of the rite of passage to being an oligarch. It’s just a prerequisite.”

As their fortunes ballooned, there was something of an arms race among the oligarchs, with the richest among them accumulating personal fleets of ever more lavish boats.

For example, Russian metals and petroleum magnate Roman Abramovich is believed to have bought or built at least seven of the world’s largest yachts, some of which he has since sold off to other oligarchs.

In 2010, Abramovich launched the Bermuda-flagged Eclipse, which at 533 feet was at the time the world’s longest superyacht. Features include a wood-burning firepit and swimming pool that transforms into a dance floor. Eclipse also boasts its own helicopter hangar and an undersea bay that reportedly holds a mini-sub.

Dennis Cauiser, a superyacht analyst with VesselsFinder, said oligarch boats often include secret security measures worthy of a Bond villain, including underwater escape hatches, bulletproof windows and armored panic rooms.

“Eclipse is equipped with all sorts of special features, including missile launchers and self-defense systems on board,” Cauiser said. “It has a secret submarine evacuation area and things like that.”

Eclipse was soon eclipsed by Azzam, purportedly owned by the emir of Abu Dhabi, which claimed the title of longest yacht when it was launched in 2013. Three years after that, Usmanov launched Dilbar, which replaced another slightly smaller yacht by the same name. The new Dilbar is the world’s largest yacht by volume.

Abramovich, whose fortune is estimated at $12.4 billion, fired back last year by launching Solaris. While not as long as Eclipse or as big as Dilbar, the $600 million Bermuda-flagged boat is possibly even more luxurious. Eight stories tall, Solaris features a sleek palisade of broad teak-covered decks suitable for hosting a horde of well-heeled partygoers.

But no boat is top dog for long. At least 20 superyachts are reported to be under construction in various Northern European shipyards, including a $500 million superyacht being built for the American billionaire Jeff Bezos.

“It’s about ego,” Cauiser said. “They all want to have the best, the longest, the most valuable, the newest, the most luxurious.”

But, he added, the escalating U.S. and EU sanctions on Putin-aligned oligarchs and Russian banks have sent a chill through the industry, with boatbuilders and staff worried they won’t be paid. It can cost upwards of $50 million a year to crew, fuel and maintain a superyacht.

The crash of the ruble and the tanking of Moscow stock market have depleted the fortunes of Russia’s elite, with several people dropping off the list of Forbes billionaires last week. Cauiser said he expects some oligarch superyachts will soon quietly be listed by brokers at fire-sale prices.

The 237-foot Stella Maris, which was seen by an AP journalist docked this past week in Nice, France, was believed to be owned by Rashid Sardarov, a Russian billionaire oil and gas magnate. After publication of an earlier version of this story, AP was contacted Sunday by yacht broker Joan Plana Palao, who said his company represents a U.S. citizen from California who purchased the Stella Maris last month. He declined to disclose the name of the buyer or the person from whom the boat had been purchased.

On Thursday, the U.S. Treasury Department issued a new round of sanctions that included a press release touting Usmanov’s close ties to Putin and photos of Dilbar and the oligarch’s private jet, a custom-built 209-foot Airbus A340-300 passenger liner. Treasury said Usmanov’s aircraft is believed to have cost up to $500 million and is named Bourkhan, after his father.

Usmanov, whose fortune has recently shrunk to about $17 billion, criticized the sanctions.

“I believe that such a decision is unfair and the reasons employed to justify the sanctions are a set of false and defamatory allegations damaging my honor, dignity and business reputation,” he said in a statement issued through the website of the International Fencing Federation, of which he has served as president since 2008.

Abramovich has not yet been sanctioned. Members of the British Parliament have criticized Prime Minister Boris Johnson for not going after Abramovich’s U.K.-based assets, which include the professional soccer club Chelsea. Under mounting pressure, the oligarch announced this past week he would sell the $2.5 billion team and give the net proceeds “for the benefit of all victims of the war in Ukraine.”

Meanwhile, location transponders showed Solaris moored in Barcelona, Spain, on Saturday. Eclipse set sail from St. Maarten late Thursday and is underway in the Caribbean Sea, destination undisclosed.

Northern California restaurant once owned by country music icon destroyed in fire

  • Oops! Something went wrong. Please try again later. More content below

A fire on a Northern California lake has destroyed a landmark restaurant and music venue once owned by famed country music crooner Merle Haggard .

Silverthorn Resort’s Pizza Pub on Shasta Lake burned down Sunday night. The pub was once a haunt for shows from the Bakersfield-born music icon, who called nearby Palo Cedro home beginning in the 1970s.

The “Mama Tried” singer’s old restaurant still served as a local music venue and hosted bands the night before the fire during the Fourth of July weekend.

Cal Fire’s Shasta-Trinity unit reported that firefighters responded to flames at the historic structure just after 10:30 p.m. Sunday, which had also spread to nearby vegetation. Firefighters also worked through the night to contain flames.

The cause of the blaze remains under investigation, Cal Fire SHU said.

In a social media post about the restaurant’s destruction, Silverthorn Resort, which operates the Pizza Pub and marina, reminisced on the spot’s many memories, including Haggard’s performances as well as local bands that played there.

“While we are devastated by this incident, we are also incredibly thankful for the loyal friends and customers who have shown us support. We know that in time, we will rebuild, stronger and better,” the post read.

Silverthorn Resort has a long history overlooking Shasta Lake. It was opened in 1853 by George Silverthorn, who ran one of the region’s first ferries on the Pit River, nearly a century before the federal government dammed the Sacramento River to create Shasta Lake.

Haggard owned the resort during the 1980s, according the Redding Record Searchlight newspaper . He also lived on a houseboat at the lake, which is a popular spot for house boaters, and an accommodation that Silverthorn offers. The Bakersfield-born crooner died in 2016.

The marina and dock that Silverthorn operates will remain open but their cabin rentals will be closed through summer, the resort said.

Magic Johnson Takes Jimmy Kimmel Cutout on Yacht Vacation: 'Star of the Night'

Johnson's move comes after the late-night talk show host hilariously photoshopped himself into a handful of the NBA legend's vacation pictures

Magic Johnson 's summer yacht adventure has a new passenger onboard — Jimmy Kimmel . Well, sort of.

Days after the talk show host, 56, hilariously photoshopped himself into a handful of the NBA legend's vacation photos , Johnson, 64, returned the favor by bringing a cardboard cutout of Kimmel along for the summer getaway.

"I sent my plane to pick up my good friend Jimmy Kimmel to join in on the fun in Saint-Tropez for the day," Johnson joked in an Instagram post on Monday, July 8.

The post began with a photo of Magic, his wife  Earleatha "Cookie" Johnson , 65, and their fellow travelers wearing '80s clothing while posing with a cutout of Kimmel, also dressed in retro attire.

Included in the post was a short video of the cutout positioned in between two chefs.

"I knew he was a jack of all trades but between taking over the dance floor and showing off his culinary skills to Chef Daisy and Pastry Chef Hannah, he was the star of the night! 😂," continued Magic in the caption.

Cedric The Entertainer , who is one of the famous faces on the trip with Magic , jokingly commented on the post, "Right after this picture Jimmy try to show us he could swim, He forgot he was cardboard, got soggy and sank… now he’s down there w/ Nemo. 🏊‍♀️🐡🐠🐋."

The comment also seemed to reference the last Photoshop image Kimmel uploaded, which shows him and his Jimmy Kimmel Live! sidekick Guillermo Rodriguez swimming in the background of one of Magic's vacation photos .

Fans couldn't help but be happy for Kimmel to be one step closer to officially joining Magic on vacation.

"I’ve been waiting for this moment. Jimmy finally got to party with the crew. I hope he knows how to electric slide. 😂😂😂," one fan wrote.

"Jimmy is going to pop up! I see it coming," another quipped.

While photoshopping himself onto Magic's vacation photos has become a tradition , Kimmel previously joked while interviewing Samuel L. Jackson in 2022 that he has been asking Magic for a vacation invitation for "six years" to no avail.

"Each time, you say yes and then Magic dodges the question. Each time summer comes and I’m sitting at home and then I eventually look at Instagram and there you guys are on the trip. I notice that I’m not on it with you," said Kimmel at the time.

Sunrise Yachts, a luxury yacht building company which is based in Turkey, has been made a main sponsor of next year’s 2011 Moscow International Boat Show (MIBS). The four-day Russian yacht show event is currently scheduled to run from April 14-17 at the Moscow’s Crocus exhibition centre.

MIBS is organised by the ITE Group and it is one of Russia’s leading boat shows and is an internationally recognised superyacht event. The show covering everything from small parts and accessories to large superyacht with over 9,000 people and 178 exhibitors attended the last year show.

The Paolo Scanu-designed Sunrise 45 yacht is an ocean-going cruising yacht that was released in 2009 to much acclaim at this was the group’s first-ever model.

Sunrise Yachts was founded in 2007 by the German entrepreneur Herbert P Baum along with the French-British yacht builder Guillaume Roché. The luxury yacht group is based in Antalya, Turkey and utilises a 10,000sq m shipyard facility. Sunrise has two sheds measuring 100m (328ft) x 16m (53ft), as well as a 70m (230ft) x 16m (53ft) fully acclimatized paint shed that can accommodate new-build and refit projects up to 65m (213ft) in length and 1,200 tonnes displacement.

Along each side of the yacht-building facility, space is available for long-term sub-contractors with the latest equipment and logistics capabilities, along with air-conditioned storage, ventilation and extraction plants. The shipyard is organized as an “assembler,” based loosely on the car industry’s model, with a small, yet powerful project management team charged with running all the in-house long-term sub-contractors.

Did you miss the northern lights? Here's what was visible across the Florida sky

northern star superyacht

It was a light show you didn't have to pay to see and you didn't even have to leave your own back yard (unless you have lots of street lights in your neighborhood).

On May 10, even Florida residents were treated to the spectacular sight of the northern lights , compliments of strong  solar flares .

The aurora borealis, or northern lights , left many watchers in awe as pink and purple hues painted the southern night sky.

"I’m truly in awe that I’m seeing the Northern Lights in FLORIDA! Just… incredible," David Reese  posted on X  from Tallahassee.

The emissions caused the  National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to issue a  severe (G4) geomagnetic Storm Watch , the first in 19 years.

Here's another opportunity to see the amazing colors.

Tallahassee residents head outside for view of aurora borealis

Zac efron parties on a yacht with several women as ex vanessa hudgens welcomes her first child.

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

Zac Efron was spotted partying with several women in St. Tropez this week – while ex-girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens welcomed her first child with husband Cole Tucker.

The “High School Musical” actor was photographed walking along a grassy path with two male friends and four women as they made their way onto a yacht on Wednesday.

It’s unclear who the women were, but they all looked chic in sundresses, matching sets, sunglasses and kitten heels.

Efron, 36, showed off his bulging biceps in a tight black short-sleeve T-shirt, denim jeans rolled up to his ankles and white slip-on sneakers.

The “17 Again” star accessorized his boat day look with a black belt, sunglasses and baseball cap.

After the group set sail, they dined at Loulou, an elegant restaurant on the Pampelonne beach.

Efron was photographed enjoying the yacht outing on the same day that Hudgens, 35, was spotted leaving the hospital with her newborn cradled in her arms.

In the photos obtained by Page Six, the “Spring Breakers” actress sat in a wheelchair while holding the little one –– whose date of birth, name and sex has yet to be revealed.

Tucker, 28, walked behind his wife and pushed along a crate that held their bags and a few other hospital items.

Want celebrity news as it breaks? Hooked on Housewives?

Neither Hudgens nor Tucker have officially announced their first child’s birth or shared any pictures.

The former Disney star initially kept her pregnancy quiet before debuting her baby bump in a major way at the Oscars red carpet in March.

Hudgens and Tucker began dating in 2020 before the baseball player popped the question three years later . The two tied the knot in front of close friends and family during a Tulum ceremony in December 2023.

Cole Tucker and Vanessa Hudgens posing together

Prior to Tucker, Hudgens was in an eight-year relationship with Austin Butler following her romance with her co-star-turned-boyfriend, Efron .

Hudgens and Efron famously starred opposite each other in the “High School Musical” franchise and dated from 2005 to 2010.

“We created a bond right from the start. We were like, ‘We’re doing this. It’s us or nothing,’” she said on the “Awards Chatter” podcast in 2019.

Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens posing together

They ultimately called it quits in 2010 after having trouble managing a long-distance relationship with their blooming careers.

Despite the split, the two have proved they have nothing but love for each other over the years. Efron recently gushed about how his ex will be as a mom in an interview with Access Hollywood last month.

“They’re going to be the best moms ever,” he said, when asked about Hudgens and co-star Ashley Tisdale’s respective pregnancies. “Those girls, are you kidding me? Oh my gosh. Yeah we’re going to have some fun family reunions coming up.”

Magic Johnson Kicks Off Annual Star-Studded Couples Yacht Trip Through Europe

Nobody does a couples trip like NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson. Every year, Johnson and his wife Cookie host a trip around Europe via yacht with some of their favorite people, many of whom are public figures. The couple kickstarted their latest tour in Barcelona.

“We are officially on vacation!! 😁,” the 64-year-old said as the caption to photos with a few of the other couples in their finest threads and a few shots of them enjoying fine dining. “Hanging out with our great friends John and Vicki Palmer and Sam and LaTanya Jackson at Boca Grande in Barcelona, Spain! The food was *chef’s kiss*” he wrote.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Earvin "Magic" Johnson (@magicjohnson)

After visiting Barcelona, the couples’ next stop on the summer tour was the party city of Ibiza. They indulged in seafood and enjoyed some serene views from the yacht and were joined by another star couple, Cedric the Entertainer and his wife , Lorna.

“Today Cookie and I enjoyed a beautiful day in Ibiza, Spain,” he wrote. “We had a wonderful lunch at Juan Y Andrea Formentera with our friends John and Vicki Palmer, Sam and LaTanya Jackson, and Cedric the Entertainer and his wife Lorna. I encourage everyone to have lunch right on the beach at Juan Y Andrea. We ate the catch of the day, fresh sea bass and lobster… So delicious!”

In 2023 , the Johnsons toured Europe and had quite a few celebrity friends come along for that trip. In addition to Samuel L. Jackson and his wife, LaTanya Richardson Jackson, and Vicki and John Palmer, they spent time with Judge Greg Mathis and his wife, Linda Mathis, as well as Michael Jordan and his wife, Yvette Prieto. Johnson also had his kids join the trip last year, including Andre and his wife Lisa, his son EJ and daughter Elisa, and their grandchildren Gigi and Avery.

Some highlights of the trips usually include top-tier meals from a private chef and Fourth of July celebrations. We look forward to seeing where the couples land next and living vicariously through them!
