A luxurius 38m Amels with a 50m superyacht feeling

6 Luxury Cabins - 4 Dinning Areas - Malta Commercial Coded - VAT paid

Built by Amels, this classic super yacht has proven that excellent craftsmanship and regular maintenance can stand the test of time. After emerging from the shipyard and her big Refit on 2018, M/Y CHESELLA has plenty of new features and improvements most notably:

  • Completely new sun deck featuring a Jacuzzi with a large lounging area and a covered bar area aft.
  • New outdoor dining area, day head, pantry and sky lounge, plus the addition of a 6th guest cabin with office space.
  • New sound systems, Lutron lighting system and 4 new Samsung smart TVs for the sky lounge, Master suite and VIP staterooms.
  • New drop-down swim platform, loungers and shower in the beach club.
  • New garage

Featuring naval architecture from Diana Naval Architects, luxury yacht CHESELLA has a beautifully designed exterior with a shallow draft for close beach access. Since her update, the tenders have moved onto the bow providing plenty of room for alfresco dining, sunbathing and lounging on the upper deck.

The sundeck is arguably the best outdoor entertainment space on board, where guests can soak in the forward Jacuzzi and take in the surrounding views. Plush armchairs and sumptuous sun pads along the stern will tempt owners to remain here all day – or all night – for relaxation or to host a party for their guests.

Inside, the refit has remained true to her origins while giving a refreshing update to her furnishings: Warm wooden paneling adds to the atmosphere of the formal dining area and lounges, the crisp blue and white furnishings add elegant color to complement the grey and white tones found in the fixtures and fittings.
