One hundred and sixty-one feet (49 meters) of glimmering gold paint make it impossible to miss Khalilah. So does her edgy, audacious styling. Then consider a cruising speed of 27 knots and a sporty, color-coordinated tender. Bottom line, you’ll find it tough to take your attention away.
As dramatic as the megayacht is on the water now, she was even more so when launched in 2014, from Palmer Johnson’s then-American headquarters. (The builder left U.S. shores the following year. It has a sales and design office in Monaco.) Her aft deck on its own spans 1,184 square feet (110 square meters). Some superyachts of similar LOAs don’t even have sundecks of that magnitude, let alone a main aft deck like it. Huge sunpads, plentiful seating for a crowd, and of course alfresco dining entice guests to spend good time here. Of special note, an extendable round table, hand-crafted of wood especially for the yacht.
Inside, Khalilah surprises even more. She has not one, but two master suites, both forward on the main deck, too. They’re similar dimensions as well. Even with them, the main deck still contains the galley—which, as you’ll discover in the video, welcomes guests to pop in. A cozy bar and seating area let you watch the chef in action, and enjoy delicacies directly from deft culinary hands. Meanwhile, unusual, striking artwork delights the senses elsewhere aboard Khalilah, from the saloon to the four guest staterooms below, the latter featuring individual color themes.
This video, promoting Khalilah in the central agency of Camper & Nicholsons for charter, is just as different as the yacht is. It’s visual storytelling, putting you in the shoes of someone enjoying a refreshing holiday onboard. Welcome onboard.
