Famous Roberto Cavalli Yacht Available for Charter

Posted on


Seen for years cruising the Med, the sleek black-hulled superyacht owned by Roberto Cavalli was only enjoyed by the Italian designer, his family, and a handful of his closest friends – until now.

Cavalli ended up selling her (originally named motor yacht RC) and after a two year major interior refit, the vessel has re-emerged as Baglietto motor yacht ABILITY.  The summer 2016 season will mark the first time the well-known yacht is available for private luxury yacht charter rental.

The new owner pays homage to Cavalli with a signature refit by interior design artist Mary Georgiou. Known for exotic prints, the fashion designer’s former yacht now radiates modern Italian style. Décor borders on excess, with flamboyant textiles, gold leaf lamps, and African tribal and Grecian art.  A touch of abstract art here and there ties the scheme together as sophisticated and modern.  Rich wood floors and furniture, along with the abundant use of animal prints and faux fur offer warmth to the yacht’s sleek, angular lines.

Accommodations for 10 guests are offered in 5 cabins, including a master stateroom on the main deck, and 4 guest cabins below deck.

Quickly zipping from port to port is a breeze on yacht ABILITY. How about breakfast in Genoa, and lunch at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in Sardinia?  While itineraries like this are beyond the same-day reach of most superyachts,  powerful waterjet drive engines propel this bullet-looking yacht at speeds in excess of 30 knots.

If exotic couture is your thing, the Cavalli-inspired motor yacht ABILITY is the perfect vessel for your upcoming summer Italy yacht charter adventure.

We received an email response this morning from Captain Dimitris Demetis of the motor yacht FELIGO V.



In his preparations for the upcoming Greek yacht charter season, Dimitris put together a beautiful sample itinerary for a 7-night odyssey exploring the Ionian Islands.



The itinerary offers a suggested route, but as Captain Demetis proudly proclaims in his email,

“The possibilities are endless!”


At 34 meters in length, motor yacht FELIGO V was built in 2008 by Italian master builders, Cantieri di Pisa.  She accommodates up to 8 guests in 4 tasteful staterooms.  This lovely boat boasts exclusive features for a yacht of her size. For instance, 
  • A full beam Owner’s en suite with walk-in wardrobe, and his and her bathroom

  • A large VIP stateroom
  • A private studio/play room on the main deck that can be converted into a double cabin with en suite bathroom
  • Spacious bridge deck
  • State-of-the-art audio/visual system with independent SAT- TV in all cabins



FELIGO V is fully-licensed to legally embark and disembark in the Hellenic islands.  She is available this summer at a weekly rate of 65,000 EUROS in July and August. The yacht is also available for 50,000 EUROS in June and September (Greek VAT and running expenses are extra).

The highly anticipated motor yacht Pershing 82 is on schedule to debut in the spring of 2012.  A contemporary reinterpretation of its predecessor, the Pershing 80, the Pershing 82 is the ninth model added to the builder’s series of open performance yachts.

Mediterranean yacht charter fans looking for a swift yacht take note!  In keeping with Pershing’s emphasis on performance, the new 82 model will be capable of a 45-knot top end, thanks to twin MTU 16V M93s.   Cruising speed is expected to be an equally-swift at 40 knots.  

Such performance will ensure you get to St. Tropez for lunch and back to the dock at the Cannes Film Festival in time for cocktails.

Designed by Fulvio De Simoni and a team of architects at Centro Stile Ferretti Group, the Pershing 82 performance yacht features an external profile that is sleeker and more aggressive than that of its predecessor.  The elongated superstructure enhances the new attractive forms while the sundeck with retractable platform makes the yacht look slimmer.


The yacht is 24.97 meters long. It features the traditional mega yacht charter layout. For instance, it has 4 comfortable guest cabins.   In the middle of the boat, the master suite exists. Forward of that is the VIP cabin.  Two twin bed cabins are at the front of the boat.
