Richard Branson has completed a refit of his 105-foot carbon fiber catamaran and is offering it for charter this season, starting next month.

Originally launched as the Lady Barbaretta in 2003 and now named Necker Belle, she spent two years being done over at Australia’s Azzura Marine and their in-house fittings division AM Interiors.

The speedy little tart is capable of topping 20 knots while under sail and 18 knots under power with all the stability one would expect of a big cat.

The yacht’s 14-metre beam houses four en suite staterooms all above the waterline making for great views.

The yacht can accomodate up to 10 guests in four en suite staterooms and the main cabin’s lounge area, which can be converted to a double cabin, as well as a crew of seven.

The interior has a cool beach house vibe mimicking that of Branson’s exclusive Necker Island retreat in the British Virgin Islands, where she’ll be at the disposal of guests when not out on charter.

She’s available in the Caribbean from February starting at €60,000 ($88,000) per week. Via: JamesList
