Main Saloon

Parallel in white, the comfortable and relaxing room has an upright player piano forward of which is a white upholstered L shaped sofa forward to port facing a coffee table and two upholstered arm chairs. A round card table with four chairs is forward to starboard aft of which is the staircase to the guest staterooms below.

The Dining Saloon forward, again paneled in white, with mahogany accents, has an impressive mahogany dining table set athwartships.  This room can be secluded from the main saloon with sliding doors and clever electrically controlled clear opaque panels.

The Galley is forward to port described in detail below, while a wide passageway to starboard leads forward past the impressive stainless steel staircase to the skylounge, to the full beam Master Suite.

Master Suite

This very impressive suite is entirely paneled in high gloss mahogany with a white paneled ceiling and white carpet.

The owner’s study, with extensive wardrobe has a large desk facing the window to starboard. The stateroom is full beam and has a king size berth in the center forward and more than adequate hanging lockers, drawers, and storage. And the master bathroom, aft to port, has a whirlpool bath tub, stall shower, twin sinks and a makeup desk.

Guest Accommodations
On the lower deck aft there are five guest staterooms, three with double beds and two with twin berths. A bright, clean feel is provided by the white paneling, stainless or nickel hardware and fixtures, blue carpeting and bright finished accents in the ensuite bathroom.

Reached via a beautiful staircase from the starboard lobby, the sky lounge is finished in a similar white paneling with mahogany accents. A pair of easy chairs and a sofa, upholstered in white are grouped around a coffee table and face a flat screen TV for a perfect movie night. A wet bar is forward to port and curved glass sliding doors open this room to the boat deck.

Boat Deck

Tenders, jet skis and other water toys are aft with high quality gym equipment grouped forward. A staircase on the starboard side leads up to the sun deck.

Sun Deck

Casual seating around two tables with shade umbrellas are aft. A large stainless steel barbeque is set in the aft structure of the mast and four teak steamer lounge chairs offer a perfect spot to relax in the sun. Forward of the mast is a large jacuzzi flanked on each side by bar tops and three bar stools. Protection from the sun at the height of the day is provided by shade panels.

Crew Accommodations
Charisma has accommodations for 11 crew in 6 cabins. Forward on the lower deck, forward of the engine room, the crew mess is to starboard with large pantry, fridge and freezer storage to port. Further forward are four twin berth ensuite cabins with enormous storage below the sole in the typical Feadship fashion. The Captain’s ensuite cabin is above the wheelhouse on the port side and another twin ensuite crew cabin is to starboard.


A door leads forward from the dining saloon to a steward’s pantry and further forward to the large galley. Properly laid out to feed a full complement of guests and crew, all equipment is first rate. A door leads to the port side deck and staircases lead up to the wheelhouse and down to the crew mess.

CHARISMA was built in 1985 by Van Lent Feadship (Holland) with naval architect H.W. DeVoogt (Holland). This yacht was purchased in 2002 and TOTALLY rebuilt from stem to stern, top to bottom.  There was not one area of the yacht that was not rebuilt, replaced or refurbished.  Today the CHARISMA is a masterpiece that has transformed an older style yacht with a cockpit (149') into a much more elegant 153' full deck motoryacht.  All work on the yacht was done in co-operation with Feadship to make sure that the Feadship integrity and name was enhanced in the overall restoration.

Since then, she has been meticulously maintained, upgraded and updated with the addition of a Jacuzzi on the sundeck, zero speed stabilizers, modern satellite communications systems, and a host of other improvements. She has returned in net income from charter more than she has cost to run, and has always complied with her class, MCA and flag state requirements. CHARISMA is, in every respect, ready to go anywhere.

Owner’s personal effects.  All items not specifically shown on this listing sheet.


CHARISMA is stunning. She is far and away more desirable than any of her contemporary Feadships, and must be inspected by anyone contemplating the purchase of a proper classic.
