The completely custom interior of Leight Star is nothing short of epic.  A traditional design with contemporary details built from the rarest tropical woods from all over the world including ebony, cocobolo, makore, mahogany, cherry, all bathed in 15 layers of lustrous paint.  The stonework on Leight Star is some of the most exquisite in the world with showers and countertops of semiprecious crystal, marble and granite that compliment her details with elegance and strength.


Surrounded by authentic Burmese teak and offering some of the most deck space in its class, paradise is best experienced aboard Leight Star.  The lower outdoor deck offers water level dining with underwater LED lights while being gently showered by heat and music.  The mid deck offers private dining while it is easily transformed into a Burmese teak dance floor with thousands of watts of stereo lingering in the ceiling above.  The upper deck accommodates nearly 60 feet of privy sunbathing area, bar, jacuzzi, and helicopter access.  While above in the observation tower romance awaits for the ultimate in privacy and view.  There is even a lounge bed on the bow for cozy sailing.
