Description: The J-type star skiff (sometimes called the Naboo star skiff) was a yacht starship created by the Theed Palace Space Vessel Engineering Corps for the Royal House of Naboo. It was referred to as a star skiff due to its primary purpose as a passenger transport, a role often shared by the common repulsorlift surface vehicles known as skiffs.

The J-type star skiff symbolized the changes sweeping through the galaxy in the final days of the Galactic Republic.

Though the star skiff retained the sleek, teardrop-shaped main hull and wide, sweeping wings of previous royal cruisers, a duller finish, exposed access grills and discolored Sossen-7 sublight engines indicated that the star skiff was a product of turbulent times. Perhaps most shocking of all for a Naboo royal vessel was the inclusion of a pair of top-mounted laser cannons. The J-type star skiff was 29 meters in length, and 49.3 meters wing to wing. Inside, It had a remarkably fast 0.5 hyperdrive and was spacious despite its small size. The Naboo star skiff was equipped with lockers and a medical suite, in addition to the standard cabins and compartments. It could also hold up to 6 passengers.

The star skiff was not designed for direct confrontation however, but its speed and agility allowed for quick escapes so the ship could recover from any damage it might sustain. Although it was far too expensive to be produced en masse, the J-type functioned as a refueling partner for the N-1 starfighter when needed.

Though designed for Queen Apailana, the current monarch continued Naboo's tradition of gratitude towards the services of former Queen Amidala by allowing her to use the star skiff.

As a rule, only the planet's monarch could own a vessel sheathed in chromium, but Padmé's popularity and loyalty to Naboo superseded such tradition. Though Padmé was more than capable of piloting the star skiff, she often left the duty of flying the ship to Captain Gregar Typho or C-3PO. J-type star skiffs were also used by contemporary prominent individuals in the Republic.

Padmé Amidala used this vessel to negotiate with Ziro Desilijic Tiure over siding with the Republic; however Ziro was not interested in what she was saying. She also flew this ship to Cato Neimoidia with Rush Clovis acting as a spy for the Jedi Council to see if he was bargaining with the Confederacy of Independent Systems. In 19 BBY she used this ship to go to Mustafar during her attempt to find her husband, Anakin Skywalker, just after the conclusion of the Clone Wars. Unbeknownst to her, Obi-Wan Kenobi had stowed aboard the ship, and this led to a fateful duel.

Obi-Wan Kenobi also flew Padmé Amidala in the yacht to the medical facility at Polis Massa Base, after Anakin had employed a Force choke upon her.

After the death of Amidala the star skiff was put to rest by the Naboo as it was a painful reminder of what had happened to their former Queen. Other Senators, however, continued to purchase these ships to improve their standing.
