2008 Neptunus 70 Hardtop with Enclosure Vessel Overview


FEB 13 - 17, 2020

The 2008 NEPTUNUS 70 SONIA STELLA a is a magnificent example of the 70 MY from NEPTUNUS YACHTS. The NEPTUNUS brand is held in very high regard by yacht owners and the yachting community alike. Walking through SONIA STELLA the quality of her build is readily apparent. Her top notch fit and finish, wood joinery, heavy duty hardware, layout and engineering are hard to ignore. More good news, she rides just as good as she looks! Most NEPTUNUS owners are fiercely loyal to the brand and have moved up from smaller models. The original owner of Sonia Stella was one of those owners. The 70 NEPTUNUS was custom built by a very knowledgeable owner incorporating his experience, ideas, wants and needs. The 2008 NEPTUNUS 70 SONIA STELLA is for sale now by a discerning yachtsman who found those features and customizations done by her original owner very appealing.

SONIA STELLA may be entered from either the fixed swim platform on a floating dock or any of the four boarding gates on her main deck via the wide walk around side decks.

The extended fixed swim platform is perfect for snorkeling, paddle boarding and a whole host of water sports activities. It has stainless hoop rails for added safety and a custom Bluewater Marine rocket launcher. This makes for a perfect spot to troll a couple lines while underway and catch some fresh fish for dinner! Centerline on the stern there is a watertight door providing access to the crew quarters and engine room.


There are extra wide teak steps leading from the swim platform to the Aft Deck on the starboard side. The spacious Aft Deck is 4′- 5′ longer than her 65/66 Neptunus sisterships allowing for more comfortable seating. Full walk around side decks give you the ability to handle lines and fenders safely as well as easily transit to the bow or starboard side forward galley entry door. To starboard she offers the much preferred teak steps in lieu of a ladder leading up to the bridge as well as a wet bar station to port. Salon entry from the aft deck is through a stainless steel trimmed, sliding glass door. Some other notable aft deck features include:

– Teak decks

– Large molded in seating with high gloss cherry wood table

– (4) additional deck chairs

– Wet bar with isotherm SS refrigerator, SS sink and Gaggenau electric grill

– Port side CAT engine electronic docking controls w/ thrusters

– Storage

– Engine room and crew quarter access


We enter the main salon from the aft deck through the sliding glass door. Once inside, the profound beauty and space give a striking first impression. The high gloss cherry wood is both rich and luxurious. Her large windows provide a bright and open feeling. The original owner had the main salon custom built to be 18” longer than the standard layout. This may not sound like much, but 18” in a custom yacht build makes a world of difference. To port we find a U-shaped ultra-leather sofa with custom storage built in beneath and cherry wood end table forward. There is a custom high gloss wood coffee table in front of the sofa that also has storage beneath. In the starboard aft corner of the salon there is an entertainment center with a large updated flat screen television and storage cabinets for audio visual components beneath. Just forward on the starboard side are two swivel barrel chairs with a round table and lamp between them.


Continuing forward from the salon there is an off-center walkway that will lead us to the galley and dining area. Immediately to starboard there is a beautiful high gloss cherry wood china cabinet with crystal almond Technostone bar top. Beneath the bar top is a wine chiller and additional storage drawers.

Opposite the china cabinet is our full galley. The galley is very open with a design emphasis on social interaction. Her rich high gloss cherry wood is warm and inviting. Galley countertops and back splash are the Crystal Almond Technostone featured in other areas of the yacht. The galley sole is Botticino Classico marble tile. She is equipped with everything a shipboard gourmet would require including:

– Kitchen Aid Stainless steel 3 door refrigerator/ freezer

– Kitchen Aid 4 burner ceramic cook top with SS trim

– Kitchen Aid Superba conventional Oven

– Panasonic SS microwave oven

– Meile SS dishwasher

– Double SS sink with Insinkerator garbage disposal

– Exceptional storage capabilities with (9) cabinets, (4) drawers, (2) pull out cabinets and (2) extra large deep 24” storage drawers under the dinette

Just forward of the galley and up a couple steps we have our raised dinette area. She was custom built not to feature a lower helm and all that space is dedicated to an amazing galley and dinette area. Natural light abounds from the large forward and side windows. This social dinette is perfect for formal or informal dining and comfortably seats 8 in a large U shaped aft facing molded in seating area with two upholstered slide out stools included. The large dining table is high gloss cherry wood.

On the starboard side forward, just outboard of the dinette there is a watertight panographic door that opens out to the walk around side deck. From here you can transit the starboard side fore or aft, go to the bow to drop anchor or enjoy the sun pad, or handle lines safely in a docking situation.

Just aft of the starboard door and across from the galley is a conveniently located DAY HEAD. By design the door to the day head does not open out to the galley. It opens out to the dinette area. The on deck day head keeps your guests from having to go downstairs to use the private heads and this incredible custom feature is rarely found on yachts of this size.

Starboard side all the way forward is the stairwell leading down to the lower accommodations.


The stairway and transition to the lower accommodations is by design, open and spacious. This stairway and lower foyer are one of the major modifications done by the knowledgeable original owner. Not only does the whole space feel wide open, it offers improved stateroom access and a more efficient layout below. At the base of the stairway to starboard is large buffet serving and storage station. There are twelve cabinets total, six high and six low. Natural light comes through two hull side portholes. A door in the companionway houses an over under washer dryer. To port is our guest stateroom with twin berths. Forward we have our VIP Stateroom and aft we have our master stateroom. All three staterooms have en suite heads.


The guest stateroom features two twin berths, attractive décor and rich high gloss cherry wood. Natural light is welcomed in through two port side portholes with shades and drapes when bright light is not welcome. Additional guest stateroom features include:

Like the other berths on board, and in keeping with a common theme, she has an upholstered headboard affixed to a large mirrored panel. The bed is flanked by high gloss cherry wood nightstands with columns up to the ceiling and decorative custom sconce lights. On the fwd bulkhead facing the bed is a large flatscreen TV.

The flybridge layout is both comfortable and social. She features and extra-large and heavy-duty braced hardtop. Her isinglass enclosure has been updated and keeps the air conditioned area cool when desired. Immediately to starboard at the top of the stairs is a buffet station and wet bar. To port is an L shaped seating area with matching table. There is dinghy storage and a hydraulic davit on the aft bridge. The helm station is centerline and on the forward bridge.
