Virgin Limited Edition, Sir Richard Branson's brand for his "privately owned collection" of luxury resorts (read: a great way to write off an incredibly alluring lifestyle, but we won't blame him - and are only slightly jealous) a few months ago announced the upcoming launch of their 2-year refit of their 2003 Lady Barbaretta, pictured below) and concurrent renaming to Necker Belle.

Projected completion and sailing to the first port of call, Virgin's own Necker Island should be early November 2009. Once Necker Belle reaches the BVI's, the planned rotation for her will be winters in the Caribbean and summers in the Med.

Details:

  • Weekly Charter: $88,000 USD
  • Maximum Sailing Speed: 20 knots plus
  • Capacity: 8 guest in 4 double staterooms
  • Length: 105 feet
  • Beam: 45.9 feet
  • To Charter, call +0800-716-919 (toll free) or +44(0)208-600-0430

As with any Virgin brand experience, one can expect over the top service and amenities. While details are yet to be released fully, one would hazard a guess similar, yet more modern equipment and amenities as previously equipped, plus other additions yet to be disclosed.

For those desiring a more private and exclusive experience over small ship cruises, charters such as Necker Belle may be a significantly more appealing option.
