The 144-foot Palmer Johnson Four Wishes, which has been a popular charter yacht for a number of years, is returning to the market under new ownership.

Launched in 2004, Four Wishes is a well-maintained build that recently had minor interior upgrades. The new owner has retained the services of many crew members who served with the previous owner and helped to build the charter program into one of the most popular in the 140-foot size range. When the yacht previously chartered through Fraser Yachts Worldwide, she earned more awards for excellence than any other charter yacht in the company's fleet and reportedly had to limit repeat bookings to 80 percent of availability, because demand became so high.

The new owner is marketing Four Wishes for charter through Ocean Independence at a lowest weekly base rate of $170,000, the same rate the yacht publicized several years ago under previous ownership. Accommodations are for 10 guests in five staterooms.

Availability will begin immediately in Florida and the Bahamas, with charter dates available this summer in New England.
