Historians reflecting on the superyacht industry of the 2020s may well cite the 42.50-metre Callisto as a textbook example of what is meant by the term ‘pure custom creation’. Built to a precise size to match her berth in the Mediterranean, Callisto seamlessly balances the owners’ desire for a 21-knot-fast superyacht with specific accommodation and outdoor entertainment wishes based on their rich experience at sea. The result is an exceptional one-off superyacht for repeat clients which sets a new precedent for bespoke luxury cruising below 500GT.
The 42.50-metre Callisto was launched by the Feadship yard in Aalsmeer (NL) at the start of April 2022, sixteen years after the delivery of the first Callisto. This 65.20-metre Feadship is still used by the owners as a world cruiser and has been kept in premium condition ever since, including two refits at Feadship in 2014 and 2021. She was the first superyacht fitted with an ultra-advanced rudder-roll system and the owners set out to be equally innovative with their second Feadship called Callisto.
