Brand new for 2023, the 219’ (67m) Benetti yacht CALEX is now for charter with Northrop & Johnson. Kicking off in The Bahamas and Caribbean this year, CALEX will set sail for the Mediterranean in spring 2024. Charters start at $680,000 per week, plus expenses.
Brought to life by a collaboration between Benetti, Giorgio Cassetta and her visionary owner, CALEX is contemporary in every detail. Her completely custom design features a one-of-a-kind owner’s suite with a private open-air lounge, the highest quality interior finishes and an unparalleled beach club at the water’s edge. CALEX emerged victorious at the 2022 World Yacht Trophies, taking home first place for Best Layout. With her stellar crew led by Captain Eddie Cooney this is the closest you’ll get to that Hotel de Paris style and service on the water.
With seven welcoming and modern staterooms, CALEX comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests. The expansive master suite, located on the upper deck, offers privacy and relaxation. It features a private office, a spa-like double bathroom and a personal foredeck. Guests can indulge in the epitome of luxury with 180-degree views from the bed or venture through the automatic doors to an exclusive open-air hangout. CALEX also provides six guest cabins, including two VIP cabins on the main deck, two kings, and two convertible twin cabins with Pullmans on the lower deck. All cabins boast elegant marble ensuite bathrooms. The yacht’s flexible layout caters to charter guests’ preferences, with various locations available to provide the perfect spots for socializing or relaxing in solitude.
The interior of CALEX showcases a harmonious blend of light and dark shades, white sculptures, luminous marble and exquisite ivory furnishings, creating an atmosphere of tranquility. Throughout the yacht, guests can admire rare statuaries and treasures collected during Calex’s voyages. The main salon offers a sociable space with a spacious U-shaped sofa, armchairs, a full bar, a pop-up TV, and a dedicated dining table. Accessibility is seamless, thanks to a stunning glass elevator connecting the interior decks. The deck furniture can be arranged to suit specific requirements, showcasing the exceptional craftsmanship and optimal use of space for which Benetti is renowned.
For those who appreciate outdoor living, CALEX provides an array of alfresco options. Guests can enjoy meals and entertainment on the main deck aft and upper deck aft, surrounded by breathtaking views. The sundeck is a true highlight, offering a dedicated area for workouts and yoga, a Jacuzzi, and ample space for relaxation. The bridge deck features an outdoor lounge area and a bar. However, the yacht’s most exceptional feature is its five-star beach club. This premier space invites guests to unwind in the hammam, enjoy a drink at the bar, catch a game on TV, or partake in a variety of water sports.
