Charter File: Recent Refits

These charter yachts have returned better than ever.

Victoria Del Mar finished a nine-month interior and exterior refit in 2014 that left her with a welcoming, fresh style. Everything from the exposed wood floors to the furniture is new. The guest spaces feel open.

ARMANI RE-IMAGINED
