Refitted Sailing Yacht XARIFA Joins Charter Fleet

By Editorial Team   4 February 2015

The recently refitted 50m 3-masted schooner XARIFA is the most recent addition to the global charter fleet, and will offer luxury charters across the West Mediterranean.

A classic yacht boasting an epic history, sailing yacht XARIFA was originally delivered in 1927 by J.S. White & Co, with naval architecture by J.M. Soper. She had successful spells cruising the Atlantic Ocean, Pacific, Indian Ocean and throughout Europe and America, used as both a pleasure and research vessel. Once the host to key diplomatic international meetings in the 1970s and James Bond himself, XARIFA now is available to charter for the first time.

Recently restored to the status that saw her rise to fame as one of the most elegant yachts of her time, the final works of her refit were completed in late August last year before she completed her maiden voyage in Cannes. An engineering overhaul and extensive exterior and interior work now means she perfectly blends the inimitable classic style with latest features found on modern sailing yachts.

Her interior offers the best of new and old, with classic artworks, wooden cabinetry and ample comfy seating creating a stylish retreat from everyday life. S/Y XARIFA will comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests in five traditionally-styled staterooms on charter vacations, comprising of a master suite, a double stateroom and three twin cabins.

Her range of water toys include a 3-person inflatable kayak, two sets of state-of-the-art scuba diving gear and 2 folding bikes – which are ideal for exploration ashore.
