Written by Charl van Rooy

The 36.4-metre explorer yacht Noorderzon has returned to her home country for the first time since changing hands last year under her original name of Lars. The vessel arrived in Amsterdam this week where she has spent the last few days.

Construction on the vessel stated in 1995 at the Dutch shipyard Made where she was conceived as the ultimate tugboat before her first owner purchased the project and had the ship completed at Balk Shipyard several years later in 2010 as a luxury yacht. Never having really operated as a tugboat due to the construction being halted mid-build, Noorderzon can, therefore, be considered as a fully fledged superyacht.

Designer Felix Buytendijk was tasked with the redesign of the project and added several superyacht features such a sundeck space and a tender-friendly swim platform. Under her previous owner, Noorderzon explored the Arctic Sea and utilised the vessel’s off-road capabilities to reach the North Pole on their maiden voyage.Noorderzon eplorer yacht in AmsterdamPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesNoorderzon explorer yacht in AmsterdamPhoto: SuperYacht Times

Noorderzon features a lounge and fitness room on the bridge deck, a saloon and dining area on the main deck, an owner’s stateroom and three suites. There is also dedicated accommodation for up to five crew members.Noorderzon explorer yacht in AmsterdamPhoto: SuperYacht TimesNoorderzon eplorer yacht in AmsterdamPhoto: SuperYacht TimesNoorderzon eplorer yacht in AmsterdamPhoto: SuperYacht Times
