Now here’s something I don’t see every day: One of the world’s most iconic motoryachts for charter has a prime-time gap in her charter calendar, with availability August 14-21 in the Mediterranean.
Talitha is a 262-foot classic built in 1929 by Krupp Kiel. Her most recent refit was in 2014, ensuring that all systems and creature comforts are in place amid her onboard antiques and other period accouterments. Open fireplaces, a Steinway piano, a card room and a library are just some of the decor and design elements on board; they pair with modern amenities such as gymnasium equipment and massage tables.
Talitha, which charters through Edmiston and Company, accommodates 12 guests in six staterooms, and she is wheelchair-accessible, with an elevator that connects all decks. The yacht charters with a crew of 18.
For water-sports fun, Talitha has Sea-Doos, kayaks, Seabobs, Laser sailboats and all kinds of other modern toys–but I personally dig her 25-foot Chris-Craft tender, a shuttle to the mainland that will make any guest feel like a Vanderbilt from years gone by.
The lowest weekly base rate is €433,125 to charter Talitha. Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about her or help you book the gap dates this August in the Mediterranean.
