Classic Feadship yacht Charisma set for Balk Shipyard refit

The 46.63 metre Feadship motor yacht Charisma has arrived at Balk Shipyard in the Netherlands for an extensive refit.

Built by Feadship to a De Voogt design and delivered in 1985, Charisma was sold in September 2016 and her new owner has planned a wide range of upgrades.

As well as a complete repaint, which includes a blue hull finish, Charisma will be getting a new superyacht spa complete with massage room, which will replace the port aft guest cabin on the lower deck.

Other improvements and domestic upgrades will include new teak decks fore and aft, a new generator and larger bow thruster. Charisma is due to be relaunched in summer 2017, when her new owner plans to use her to explore the coast of Norway, Latvia and Russia.

Accommodation on board Charisma is for 10 guests split between a master suite, three doubles and a twin cabin. The crew quarters allow for a staff of up to 11 people, while a davit crane provides upper deck tender storage.

Formerly a successful yacht for charter in both the Caribbean and Mediterranean, she is Lloyd’s Registry and MCA compliant. Her full displacement steel hull supports an aluminium superstructure and three decks for a total interior volume of 419GT.

Power comes from a pair of General Motors 12V149N diesel engines for a top speed of 14 knots, while her total fuel capacity of 62,500 litres means that Charisma can cruise for up to 3,500 nautical miles at 12 knots before needing to fill up.

She is the seventh superyacht to be refitted at Balk Shipyard this year, with other significant examples including the 45 metre Abeking & Rasmussen yacht Bravado, which was relaunched in July.
