CALEX Yacht for Charter

The revolutionary 2022 Benetti superyacht CALEX is a vision of class and opulence. Bespoke in every detail, this 219’ (67m) charter yacht showcases a completely custom design with a magnificent owner’s suite complete with its own private exterior lounge space. In fact, charter yacht CALEX’s sweeping layout won her the award for Best Layout at the 2022 World Yacht Trophies. Her sleek exterior design is courtesy of Giorgio Cassetta, while her award-winning interior was brought to life by a collaboration between Benetti and the owner’s design team.

CALEX’s interior is adorned with a beautiful mix of light and dark shades, white statuary, gleaming marble and stunning ivory-color furnishings giving an overall feeling of serenity. Guests can admire the rare sculptures and treasures picked up along the yacht’s travels. The main salon is designed to be a social space with a huge U-shaped sofa, armchairs, a full bar, pop-up TV and a dedicated dining table. Accessibility has been carefully considered aboard. Guests can effortlessly travel between the many interior decks in the stunning glass elevator. The deck furniture also can be configured depending on requirements. CALEX’s exceptional Benetti craftsmanship and clever use of space are demonstrated throughout the entire yacht, enveloping guests in luxury from deck to deck. 

CALEX welcomes 12 guests in seven warm and modern staterooms. The vast master suite is situated on the upper deck with a clear focus on privacy and relaxation. With a private office, spa-like double bathroom and their own private foredeck, this is the epitome of on-water luxury. This stateroom’s 180-degree views can be admired while in bed, or guests can head through the automatic doors to the completely private open-air hangout. CALEX’s six guest cabins, two VIPs on the main deck, two kings and two convertible twins with Pullmans on the lower deck all offer the same chic marble ensuite bathrooms. CALEX’s clever layout is extremely charter-friendly, with versatile guest accommodations and many different zones for guests to enjoy depending on their mood.

This charter yacht is a dream for those seeking to take advantage of all things alfresco. From the main deck aft and upper deck aft, guests can enjoy meals and entertainment surrounded by unbeatable views. CALEX’s sundeck is second to none, with a dedicated workout and yoga space, a Jacuzzi and plenty of space to recline. Her bridge deck has an outdoor area with a lounge and bar. In our opinion, her best feature is the five-star beach club. For those interested in hanging out waterside in style, this prime real estate invites guests to rejuvenate in the hammam, rehydrate at the bar, watch the game on TV or enjoy the vast array of watersports on offer.

Targeting super yachts owned by Russian oligarchs could hit a nerve in Moscow

Poor transparency around ownership of assets can cause challenges, experts say.

calex yacht owner

Social Sharing

With sanctions levied and financial assets seized, Russian oligarchs have been scrambling to get their super yachts out of Western ports in search of safer harbours. 

One yacht, said to belong to Russian President Vladimir Putin himself, abruptly left port in Hamburg, Germany, just weeks before the Russian invasion of Ukraine prompted wide-reaching sanctions. Others were not so quick to leave European ports. 

Authorities in La Ciotat, on France's Mediterranean coast, seized a yacht they say is linked to sanctioned Russian oligarch Igor Sechin, the CEO of state oil company Rosneft. He was Russia's deputy prime minister from 2008 to 2012.

  • Canada slaps sanctions on Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich
  • Analysis With Russia pressing on and Ukraine digging in, how will Putin's war actually end?

Industry watchers say oligarchs everywhere are trying to keep their yachts from being taken.

​​"There's a few yachts that we are watching at the moment in the Atlantic," said Sam Tucker, head of super yachts at the firm VesselsValue, which tracks and estimates the value of these giant luxury yachts. 

"I'm expecting some of them to start doing U-turns in the middle of the ocean," he told CBC Radio's Day 6 .

calex yacht owner

Western countries have imposed a punishing package of sanctions and export control restrictions on Russia in response to the invasion of Ukraine. Russia's biggest banks were hit, as was the country's central bank. Major state-owned companies and some of the country's wealthiest individuals have seen overseas assets frozen.

The investment bank JP Morgan Chase believes Russia's economy will shrink 35 per cent in the second quarter of 2022 and seven per cent for the entire year.

calex yacht owner

White House spokesperson Jen Psaki says the suite of sanctions is meant to make every aspect of life difficult on Putin and the oligarchs who protect him.

"What we're talking about here is seizing their assets, seizing their yachts and making it harder for them to send their children to go to colleges and universities in the West," Psaki said in a briefing this week. "These are significant steps that will impact the people who are closely around President Putin."

Symbolic target

The yachts themselves are worth hundreds of millions of dollars, but experts in Russian sanctions say this isn't just about the dollar value.

"They don't have much value compared to the total net worth of an oligarch," said Bill Browder, a long-time advocate for stiff sanctions against Russian oligarchs, in an email to CBC Radio. 

But they are "a highly symbolic attack on something coveted by the oligarchs."

These ultra-luxurious ships became a status symbol for the oligarchs as they amassed fortunes in the 1990s and early 2000s.

"There is a bit of oneupmanship," Tucker told Day 6 . He says the biggest and most expensive ships are cloaked in secrecy. They have extreme privacy and security features, including bulletproof glass, and some require crew to sign non-disclosure agreements.

calex yacht owner

But Tucker says the biggest security and privacy feature of all is the opaque ownership structure of the yachts. He says precious little information about who actually owns these ships is available.

"[Only] basic information is disclosed — for example, the registered owner — which is often a shell company or a 'special interest vehicle' registered in Monaco, Malta, [or the] Cayman Islands," he said.

Untying those knots is a notorious problem, but one usually confined to taxation issues.

calex yacht owner

"One thing that I think may come out of this whole situation is the increased call for transparency and transparent ownership," said Tucker.

Yachts on the move

So far, only four super yachts have been seized, including a 213-foot yacht owned by Alexei Mordashov in Imperia, Italy.

While authorities sift through the byzantine paper trail of ownership, other oligarchs have scrambled their crews to get the yachts to somewhere safe.

"One of the things I've been trying to figure out is, where do they go [next]?" asked Alex Finley, a former CIA officer living in Barcelona, in an interview with  As It Happens host Gillian Findlay .

This week, Finley tweeted photos tracking a ship said to be owned by Roman Abramovich, the Russian billionaire who owns the Chelsea Football Club.

  • Anxious Russians flee by the hundreds each day into neighbouring Finland

"A lot of these yachts that we've been looking at are heading towards the Maldives or the Seychelles. A few are in Montenegro, but they look like they're probably going to be on the move," Finley said in the interview .

Here you can see the sterns of both Aurora and Valerie, and in the other pic, the empty slip where Solaris used to be (which is the size of the empty hole in my heart). 7/ <a href="https://t.co/Luvj5vyWXp">pic.twitter.com/Luvj5vyWXp</a> &mdash; @alexzfinley

Neither the Maldives nor the Seychelles signed onto the sanctions, so the ships are probably safe from seizure there. Another major hub is Dubai.

"I think we're going to see Dubai as a big hotspot for these yachts," said Tucker. "It has hot weather all year round and … Russians can fly to Dubai without going through the EU airspace."

Tucker agrees that targeting the yachts is a symbolic move.

"It's really sending the message that they aren't untouchable. We've closed the skies on both sides of the Atlantic so their private jets can't operate, and now we're going after their super yachts," he said.

"I'd be feeling quite vulnerable if I was an oligarch right now."
