The yacht, launched in 1986, has enviable pedigree. She was built by Feadship, with naval architecture by De Voogt and interior design by Terence Disdale, and refitted in 2003. She sleeps ten guests in five cabins, including two twin cabins, two doubles and a full beam master suite with a large en-suite, walk-in wardrobe and massive office – equivalent in size to another large cabin. Fourteen crewmembers are also accommodated, with a good-sized crew mess, galley and service facilities. The decorative scheme is light and playful, with pale woods, lots of white and splashes of colour in fabrics and art, while large windows ensure the interior is well-lit throughout.
Calixe's two Deutz engines offer a range of 7250 nautical miles at the cruising speed of 15 knots and she has a Lloyds 100A1* classification.
Calixe is listed for sale asking $15,900,000.
