The Dark Star was custom designed by Naval Architect, Michael LeMole of LeMole Naval Architecture. The fiberglass hull was built in Steuben, Maine by H & H Marine Inc. in conjunction with and under the guidance of Steve Hudson of Oak Hill Marine Design LLC.
The hull was finished in February 2010 and transported to Yanks Marine in Tuckahoe, NJ for completion. The Dark Star was built to U.S. Coast Guard requirements and from start to finish, the total time for completion of the Dark Star was 5 ½ months.
The vessel is Coast Guard inspected and is certified to carry 49 passengers. It is equipped with state of the art electronics and the latest life saving equipment. Our captains are all U.S. Coast Guard licensed, and all of our captains/crew are subject to random drug-testing as mandated by the U.S. Coast Guard.
