The head-turning, gold-hull, 162-foot Palmer Johnson Khalilah has joined the Fraser charter fleet.

There are still dates available for late-season charters in France and Italy, with a crew of nine on board. Accommodations are for as many as 11 guests in five staterooms.

Khalilah is one of the most original-looking yachts on the charter market. In addition to its gold exterior, the yacht has what Fraser calls a “cool, funky, fun interior.”

Recent upgrades to the 2015 build include the addition of zero-speed stabilizers and a newly enlarged swim platform.

The lowest weekly base rate to book Khalilah is about $252,750.

What is Khalilah’s top speed? It’s about 25 knots, which also turns heads for a yacht this size.
