KHALILAH yacht interior

All design stages, including the interior of the KHALILAH yacht, were completed by Palmer Johnson Yachts.

There are five cabins on board that can accommodate up to eleven guests. The KHALILAH yacht has twin master suites, one VIP cabin, and one double cabin, as well as a twin and an additional Pullman berth.

Nine crew members find space in cabins below deck. The KHALILAH yacht is often described as a family-friendly yacht with a lot of features that are adjusted to children including her unusual interior design. 

In addition to her wide selection of water toys, families will appreciate the cabin layout and the onboard jacuzzi.

The beach club is perfect for a quick swim before a delicious dinner prepared by the five-star chef on board KHALILAH.

The yacht has impressive underwater lighting, wifi, and an upscale entertainment system. The interior of the KHALILAH yacht was designed to be tasteful and contemporary.

The style is somewhat eccentric in places, with colorful patterns and unusual features like a squid-shaped lamp in the main salon.

This is yet another aspect in which KHALILAH is an excellent yacht for families and not a conventional charter vessel.

Palmer Johnson gave her a unique interior to set KHALILAH apart from other superyachts and to match her already prominent exterior.

The furnishings of the yacht also have a distinct south-east Asian influence, with several buddha statues spread throughout the vessel.

Several cabins have intricate wood carvings decorating the walls, and there are traditional decorations and murals to be found onboard the luxury yacht.

Most notably, one of the bathrooms is entirely decorated with a colorful mosaic depicting cartoon-like sea animals, which is sure to be popular among children spending time aboard the KHALILAH yacht.

Other bathrooms are more minimalistic with white marble finishes and discreet mosaics of trees and other natural scenes.


The KHALILA yacht is 48 meters (157.6 ft) long with an 11-meter (36.1 ft) beam and a 2.1-meter (6.11 ft) draft.

She is considered the world’s first all-carbon superyacht and is especially environmentally friendly with reduced emissions and exceptional fuel efficiency.

Both her hull and superstructure are built out of carbon, making her a lightweight vessel at only 485 tons.

She is powered by twin MTU engines which allow her to reach impressive speeds of up to 30 knots.

She comfortably cruises at 28 knots, making her one of the faster yachts in her size category.

Due to her highly efficient engines, she still has a range of 1,500 nautical miles and is the perfect yacht for visiting destinations in shallow waters due to her low draft.


The KHALILAH yacht is one of the most striking superyachts in the world and is guaranteed to draw attention wherever she goes with her pearlescent gold finish.

She is accompanied by a matching 6.8-meter (22 ft) gold tender, and her aerodynamic design gives her a sleek and elegant appearance.

On the aft, the yacht has a spacious swimming platform and storage area for water toys with an adjacent seating area with a beach club.

With her many floor-to-ceiling windows and large decks, KHALILAH perfectly merges indoor and outdoor living and provides guests with many choices for relaxing and enjoying the views.

One of her more unusual features is the custom extendable staircase that can be used to board guests and extend onto the water if requested as an unconventional seating area.

The exterior of the KHALILAH yacht was designed by Palmer Johnson Yachts, which is also the shipyard where the vessel was constructed.

As a charter yacht, Khalilah has a fantastic selection of water toys on board to entertain her guests. There are jet skis, water skis, kayaks, paddleboards, and inflatables, all stored aft of the vessel.

The adjacent deck is exceptionally large and measures over 110 square feet giving guests plenty of space for sunbathing or exercising. 


The KHALILAH yacht has an estimated price of US $30 million. She generates annual running costs of approximately US $1 to $3 million.

Khalilah is available for charter at a weekly price of US $225,000 per week during both the winter and summer seasons. She is based in the Mediterranean and is primarily available for charter there.

Khalilah is also available for sale at a listing price of US $28,5 million, although it is unclear whether a buyer has already been found.
