Northrop and Johnson has just signed the 128-foot Hakvoort motoryacht Revelry into the charter fleet. Previously known for charter as Snowbird, the yacht has a new owner but has retained much of the same crew, including Capt. Thomas Plog.
I was on board this yacht in May 2011, when she was still known as Snowbird. Her interior decor was a real standout, with works by Roy Lichtenstein, Damien Hurst, Willem De Kooning, Jeff Koons, Ellsworth Kelly, Robert Motherwell, Andy Warhol, and Frank Stella. A great deal of Hermes orange was infused throughout the interior, too, matched alongside a light, sea-tone blue. Nobody could mistake Snowbird for a yacht with a traditional interior décor. She was modern and unique, almost bubbling over with color and light, and real fun for anyone with an interest in Modern American art.
Northrop and Johnson tells me that much of the art remains now that the yacht is known as Revelry, with just a few pieces removed “to offer more space for the guests to circulate throughout.” I would thus expect this yacht to have the same stylish, contemporary vibe and much the same ambience for charters.
Revelry has availability this summer in the Mediterranean, until the end of July in Southern Italy and then from mid-August onward in the Adriatic Sea. Her lowest weekly base rate is €145,000 for 10 guests. Any reputable charter broker can tell you more or help you book a week on board.
