KALIKOBASS II is wintering in the Med undergoing a major refit.

KALIKOBASS II is in France this winter undergoing a major refit.  As reported by Captain Ross Murray:
“No stone has been left unturned.” 

Among the most exciting aspects of her refit is the installation of new teak decks and all new flush deck hatches which will further enhance KALIKOBASS II's stunning profile!  Much of the work is too technical to list here, but to summarize ~ the generators and main engine have been thoroughly overhauled; from hydraulics to electronics, A/C and plumbing systems, the newest and quietest equipment is being installed.  In short, everything to make the boat run efficiently and to enhance the comfort of guests is being inspected, serviced or replaced.  Absolutely everything has been removed from the interior so that every nook and cranny can be inspected, cleaned and painted or varnished. 

Cosmetically, KALIKOBASS II will have the look of a new yacht with: 

  • fresh paint & new varnish inside and out
  • new teak decks with flush hatches
  • new deck cushion covers
  • new 17’ flat screen televisions in all guest cabins
  • new guest cabin bed linens and day covers
  • DVD library expanded with the latest and best films, documentaries and children's movies
  • all safety & medical equipment serviced & updated
  • upgraded electronics systems

Captain Ross Murray projects a late April launch date, giving ample time to position KALIKOBASS II for a busy summer season.   Current plans are: 

~ May & June - Greece and Turkey
~ July & August – Croatia & Greece (Currently booked 14 – 25 August, Corfu to Athens)
~ September 15 - October, Turkey
Locations somewhat flexible according to charter bookings.

46,000 weekly, plus all expenses
