Branson’s Necker Belle Joins the Burgess Charter Roster

    Fresh out of an extensive, two-year refit at Australia’s Azzura Marine, the 105-foot CMN Necker Belle signed on with the Burgess charter fleet. Originally launched as Lady Barbaretta in 2003, the carbon-fiber catamaran is also part of Sir Richard Branson’s privately owned collection of luxury retreats, Virgin Limited Edition.

    Necker Belle’s 46-foot beam provides space for eight guests in four en suite staterooms, and two more in the main cabin’s lounge area, which converts to a double cabin. Azzura Marine’s fit-out division, AM Interiors, designed and executed her contemporary and sophisticated beach-house interior. Under sail, Necker Belle can reach more than 20 knots and cruises under power at 18. Her six-foot draft allows her to maneuver in shallow waters.

    Necker Belle and her seven-member crew will be available for charter in the Caribbean from February until she hits the Mediterranean for the summer. (+44. 20.7766.4300, www.burgessyachts.com)
