More a ship than a mere yacht, CHAKRA began life as a commercial vessel before being converted into a lavish superyacht at Devonport Yachts. Today, she is without peer one of the largest luxury charter vessels available in the international fleet with a head-turning presence in every port.

Wraparound decks lead forward, past the gym, to an open space ideal for yoga, as well as a smaller seating area for intimate gatherings.
The main deck aft comprises an alfresco dining area for 2424 guests, with a bar displaying CHAKRA’S historic steering wheel, and two long glass tables accompanied with transparent polycarbonate chairs. This area is completely protected from the elements, without losing any of the view.

At the stern of this one-of-a-kind charter yacht is her extended swim platform for easy access to the garage and watertoys, stairs to the deck above, as well as passarelle for ease of boarding guests and their luggage.
The refit of this superlative charter yacht retained many of the classic heritage features, such as the dark, lustrous timber work within, while infusing it will an impactful contemporary style throughout.
