Fraser Yachts Worldwide has just welcomed the 144-foot Beluga to the Mediterranean yacht charter fleet.

Beluga launched in 2014 from Timmerman Yachts, which is a Dutch-Russian consortium building yachts in Moscow. While the Timmerman brand name may not be as well known as some others in the yacht-charter industry, a number of Timmerman's partners are world-renowned, including Vripack and Jon Bannenberg.

For charters, Beluga will be based in Imperia, Italy, with itineraries available throughout the West Mediterranean. Accommodations are for 10 guests, and nine crew are on board.

Weekly base rate: about $140,000.
