It’s Hard to be this Handsome

The aptly named, 153-foot Feadship Charisma is for sale. (Go ahead. Try to resist.)

Charisma is one of those qualities we all know when we see it. Women swoon over it. Men try to embody it. It’s usually something innate as opposed to attained, but in the case of the 153-foot Feadship Charisma, it now can be bought.

That’s because this handsome motoryacht has just gone into the brokerage listings with Northrop and Johnson’s Michael Nethersole in Fort Lauderdale. The asking price is $14.9 million for the 1985 build, whose total refit in 2002 earned international acclaim and whose owner has since invested in a new sundeck hot tub, interior carpeting and at-anchor stabilizers.

Charisma boasts every bit of charm that her name suggests, with white walls, high-gloss mahogany woodwork and cream-colored furnishings. Stepping on board feels like stepping into an Architectural Digest spread filled with the timeless elegance of a classic seaside retreat.


Nethersole is available for interested buyers who want to arrange a tour, or you can give the yacht a serious try-out with a charter at a weekly base rate of $168,000.
