Edmiston says the 236-foot CRN Arbema is almost ready for the winter charter season after a multimillion-dollar refit.

Launched in 2010, the yacht’s nearly yearlong refit period in the shipyard is expected to finish in November. Charter availability is expected to begin with the Christmas holiday season in the Caribbean, Bahamas and Central America.

Work has included a full paint job, what Edmiston calls “major” technical upgrades, installation of a new interior, the addition of upgraded toys and more.

Accommodations are still for 12 guests and four supernumeraries in eight staterooms. The master is on the main deck and spans the full beam with a fold-down balcony. It also includes a private TV room and massage room.

Following the winter season, the yacht is expected to move to the Mediterranean for summer 2024.

What’s the lowest weekly base rate to charter Arbema? It’s $600,000.
