When it comes to a classic gentleman’s motor yacht, there’s nothing like a Trumpy – especially one like Wishing Star. Exquisitely maintained, with a handsome and impeccable interior, she is the ideal choice for those who appreciate traditional elegance afloat.

Accommodating six guests in one queen and two twin staterooms, Wishing Star is available in New England in the summer and Florida and the Bahamas in the winter. Having recently undergone an extensive refit, her varnish is sparkling, her paint is fresh, and her rich upholsteries, linens, and other soft furnishings are all new.

In the first half of the twentieth century, society’s most prominent members knew that owning a Trumpy meant you had truly arrived. The DuPont, Guggenheim, Morgan, Dodge, and Chrysler families all had Trumpy yachts. Even the famous Sequoia, the official yacht of seven U.S. Presidents (from Roosevelt to Carter), was a Trumpy.

The charming, experienced, and genuinely welcoming crew are dedicated Trumpy enthusiasts and look forward to sharing this sweetheart of a yacht with their guests.
