Feadship motor yacht Charisma sold
by Malcolm MacLean
The 46.3 metre motor yacht Charisma has been sold with Merle Wood & Associates acting for the buyer and seller.
Built by the Dutch superyacht yard Feadship to a design by De Voogt and delivered in 1985, Charisma was totally rebuilt in 2002 — in consultation with Feadship to maintain the integrity of the brand — and has been very well maintained and upgraded by her dedicated captain and owner. Improvements include the addition of a sun deck spa pool, new carpets and furnishings, and zero speed stabilisers.
Lloyds classed and MCA compliant, accommodation is for 12 guests in six cabins laid out as a master, three doubles and two twins. All cabins have television screens, entertainment systems and full en suite facilities.
The interior is decorated in high gloss mahogany with leather and chrome highlights, while a particular favourite with guests is the sky lounge. There, a pair of easy chairs and a sofa, upholstered in white, are grouped around a coffee table and face a flat screen television for a perfect night at the movies. A wet bar is forward to port and curved glass sliding doors open this room to the boat deck.
Deck areas are spacious and include al fresco dining options on the large aft deck and the spa pool deck while a gymnasium is located on the bridge deck. Twin 750hp Detroit Diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 12 knots and a range of 3,000 nautical miles.
Charisma was asking $11.9 million.
