Edmiston sends word that the 164-foot classic motoryacht Malahne is dropping her weekly base rate from $145,000 to $120,000 in the Caribbean, with charter dates available through the beginning of March.
Malahne is a true classic, launched in 1937. She was built for William Lawrence Stephenson, who helped found F.W. Woolworth & Co. in Britain. He was an avid yachtsman who also commissioned the build of Velsheda, a J-Class sailing yacht that launched in 1933. Malahne later was owned by Hollywood film producer Sam Spiegel, who was involved in On the Waterfront, The Bridge on the River Kwai and Lawrence of Arabia. Spiegel regularly entertained celebrities on board, including Elizabeth Taylor and Grace Kelly.
The current owner of Malahne completed a 30-month restoration at the renowned Pendennis facility in 2015. The shipyard’s craftsmen brought the classic motoryacht back to her original Art Deco styling by working with Savile Row interior design firm Oliver Laws.
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Malahne or help you book her in the Caribbean at the newly reduced weekly base rate.
