Five Standout Yachts Attending the 2022 Antigua Charter Yacht Show

By Emily Dawkins

The esteemed Antigua Charter Yacht Show returns this Sunday 4th December for its incredible 61st edition. Welcoming brokers, captains and industry professionals from around the world for its six-day event, this year’s show is set to be better than ever after two years of pandemic-induced restrictions. If you’re attending the industry show this year, look at our collection of five standout charter yachts that will be on display at the stunning Caribbean island next week.


For charter with Morley Yachts

Stealing the show at the Antigua Charter Yacht Show this year is the world-renowned 99.06m motor yacht CHRISTINA O. 

Delivered in 1943, CHRISTINA O was originally built as a Canadian convoy escort but was transformed into an extravagant superyacht when sold to Aristotle Onassis in 1954. Rich in history, CHRISTINA O is the epitome of elegance and luxury. During her lifetime, she has welcomed some of the world’s most recognised icons and stars onboard including Sir Winston Churchill, John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe. At the time of her conversion in 1954, CHRISTIANA O marked a new era for the world of luxury superyachting, and has been an incredible memento ever since. 

Following a complete refurbishment in 1998, CHRISTINA O was restored to her former heyday glory, fitted with modern (at the time) technology as well as the latest yachting equipment. Now, over twenty years later, she has been maintained to incredible standards and offers a spectacular opportunity as a charter yacht for those who desire a cruising holiday in the utmost style and comfort whilst surrounded by unique history. 

Able to host up to 250 guests onboard and fitted with 18 exquisite ensuite cabins, CHRISTINA O is an unrivalled vessel for special occasions or family getaways. 

As the star of the 61st Antigua Charter Yacht Show, CHRISTINA O will be located at the Falmouth Harbour Marina across the five days, represented by Morley Yachts.

74.37m LADY E

For charter with Burgess

Another spectacular addition to the Antigua Charter Yacht Show lineup this year is the 74.37m motor yacht LADY E. 

Delivered in 2006 by leading shipyard Amels, LADY E is a classic Dutch-built superyacht that offers the very best in regards to space, luxury and comfort. Undergoing an extensive refit in 2020 by Pendennis Shipyard, which saw her length increase from 69m to 74.37m, alongside several new additions including a brand-new sea-level beach club, LADY E presents the perfect yachting escape onboard. 

Over five grand decks, the 74.37m vessel features an array of spacious rooms, comfortable suites and luxury amenities, with the garage below home to an abundance of the latest water toys and tenders. LADY E can accommodate 12 guests in six sumptuous suites, all adorned in the exquisite interior design of Walter Franchini.

LADY E offers five-star cuisine, red-carpet service and pure indulgence: what more could you want? Across the five days of the Antigua Yacht Charter Show, LADY E will be located at Falmouth Harbour Marina, on display with Burgess.  

65.23m TRIUMPH

For charter with Royal Yacht International 

Benetti’s incredible 65.23m motor yacht TRIUMPH is set to catch the eyes of visitors at the Antigua Charter Yacht Show this year. 

Launched under secrecy at the beginning of 2021 with the codename ‘Project Vogue’, TRIUMPH marks a significant addition to the Italian yard’s fleet. Adorned in sleek and timeless lines over six luxurious decks, TRIUMPH is a magnificent example of the penmanship of renowned Italian designer Giorgio M. Cassetta. 

Large curved windows give the vessel a streamlined appearance to offset her formidable presence on the water. Her interiors are just as opulent, designed collaboratively by Benetti and Green & Mingarelli Design. 

Offering a host of amenities including a touch-and-go helipad, an impressive selection of water toys and accommodation for 12 guests in six lavish staterooms, TRIUMPH is no less than her name suggests: a triumph. 

TRIUMPH will be on display with Royal Yacht International at the Antigua Yacht Club Marina for two days of the six-day show.


For charter with Y.CO

The brand new 2022 Amels motor yacht COME TOGETHER will be joining the fleet of charter yachts at the Antigua show this year.

The first superyacht from the new generation of Amels 60 Limited Editions, 60m COME TOGETHER is an unmissable vessel in the water, set to fit in perfectly against the picturesque Antiguan backdrop. Delivered to her owner this Spring, the 60m yacht boasts a remarkable Espen Øino exterior adorned in geometric shapes and sweeping lines. Inside, Winch Design has crafted a stunning custom interior, offering guests a relaxed atmosphere through the use of warm, natural tones. 

Fitted with innovative hybrid power and propulsion technology, COME TOGETHER represents an icon of the sought-after Amels Limited Editions DNA, and a worthy showcase of an Amels yacht designed for the future. 

Since her delivery earlier this year, the 60m vessel has already seen plenty of success on the charter market, with more than comfortable accommodation and space for 12 guests within six contemporary cabins. 

COME TOGETHER offers an unparalleled opportunity to charter a brand-new yacht with innovative, sustainable features throughout. She will be on display at the Antigua Yacht Club Marina over five days of the Antigua Charter Yacht Show with Y.CO.

43.89m MES AMIS 

For charter with Cecil Wright

Setting the standards high for the sailing yachts at this year’s Antigua Charter Yacht Show is the elegant 43.89m MES AMIS. 

Characterised by an outstanding design and high level of construction, MES AMIS is an incredibly sleek, low-profile yet fast cruising sloop. Launched in 2007, the 43.89m showcases the genius collaboration between designers, Dubois Naval Architects and shipyard, Fitzroy Yachts. 

MES AMIS offers accommodation for ten across one luxurious owner’s suite and three generous guest cabins, with plenty of space for relaxing and entertaining in the upper and lower saloons and galley. The yacht’s stunning interior design has been created by Adam Lay Studio, who has cleverly combined contemporary, neutral fabrics and soft furnishings with warm oak and walnut joinery to create stylish and welcoming onboard spaces.  

Recently undergoing a refit in 2021, MES AMIS is in impeccable condition and is now more than ready to welcome charter guests onboard. She will be located at Antigua’s iconic Falmouth Harbour Marina throughout the duration of the Charter Show, on display with Cecil Wright.

Undoubtedly, this year’s Antigua Charter Yacht Show is set to showcase an impressive selection of superyachts. With over 30 charter vessels already confirmed for the duration of the show, visitors can expect the very best from the warm Caribbean waters this December.
