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.

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.

We just read in one of our favorite boating blogs (Casco Bay Boaters Blog) that "After a 35-year hiatus, the iconic Trumpy name will soon grace the hull of an elegant new motoryacht." This is good news for all Trumpy fans. The photo shows that they are still going for the classic look, too!

Wishing Star accommodates up to six guests in 3 staterooms (one queen & two twins).

Wishing Star's schedule (slightly flexible) is as follows:
  • Key West : January 1 - April 27
  • Bahamas : May 1 - June 15
  • Charleston : June 20 - July 4th
  • NOTE: available for July 4th in Newport
  • Newport, RI : July 15 - August 15
  • Maine : August 20 - Sept 1
  • Haul out September in Boothbay Harbor, Maine
  • Charleston : October 1 - December 1
  • Key West : December 7 - 31
Having recently undergone an extensive refit, her varnish is sparkling, her paint is fresh, and her rich upholsteries, drapes, carpets, linens and other soft furnishings are all new.

The charming, experienced, and genuinely welcoming crew of Roberta and Bret Todd are dedicated Trumpy enthusiasts and look forward to sharing this sweetheart of a yacht with their guests. A third crew is available on an as needed basis... inquire.

Wishing Star's charter rate is $22,000/week plus expenses.
