154 Feadship MY 1990, BG CHARADE

BG CHARADE is a classic superyacht designed and built by Feadship, the renowned Dutch shipyard in 1990. Feadship DeVoogt provided naval architecture and Studio DeVoogt, the exterior design.  She was custom-built for Microsoft co-founder, Paul Allen for luxurious circumnavigation with a ground-breaking pilothouse that featured electronic steering—no helm wheel! The “larger than life” helm command center was refit with new modern upgraded electronics that include large touchscreens with the vessel management system and VHF radio to port, Furuno remote; AIS information in the digital chart, B&G equipment, another Furuno remote to starboard along with the depth sounder and sonar. The tiller lever is to port of the shift and throttle controls with manual shift and throttle in the engine room as back-up. Overhead are steering gear, compass light, gearbox, and engine analog gauges, wiper controls and another VHF radio. There are no helm chairs—just two benches; captain is alert and standing when on duty! The engineer’s office located next to the engine room also features the Yacht Management System and all controls. BG CHARADE recently underwent a Lloyd’s Class 10-year technical class survey—a major undertaking!

Notable among the 2015 major refit, was the addition of the main deck VIP ensuite stateroom, which replaced the formal dining room that was moved aft. Also on the main deck, the master head that originally was a Jack and Jill arrangement was redesigned to feature a bathtub in the center area with his and her sinks on either side, a massive shower with built-in bench to port, and a separate toilet to starboard; the master suite is full beam and a luxurious private haven for the owner.

Her owner of 10 years has authorized a $2,000,000 price reduction.

Don’t miss your chance to see this incredible opportunity. 

Custom built by the finest creative minds for Paul Allen of Microsoft, BG Charade set a new standard for the yachting industry. After successfully completing 3 circumnavigations under Allen’s ownership and serving as the esteemed venue for the honeymoon of Bill and Melinda Gates, she has proven herself as an iconic world traveler capable of exceeding the limits for her demanding owners.


Built to Lloyds Classification and delivered in 1990, this incredible yacht boasts 499GT’s of pure luxury. She has a phenomenal range in excess of 5,000nm at a cruising speed of 12 knots, and a top speed of 15.5 knots. A full technical and cosmetic refit in 2016 valued at over $6 million included 2 new Kohler generators, her CAT engines fully rebuilt, fresh teak on all exterior spaces, Quantum Zero-Speed Stabilizers, and a full electrical and systems update.


BG Charade’s refinished interior received a ‘Hampton Beach House’ interior accommodating up to 12 guests in 6 generous cabins consisting of a full beam master suite and VIP suite on the main deck, with four further guest cabins below deck. She can accommodate up to 10 crew members ensuring you and your guests the finest experience onboard.


BG Charade offers a truly unique purchasing opportunity, distinguished by its status as a classic and timeless Feadship, featuring a contemporary interior design. The significant role she has played in the superyacht industry has afforded her a status that is assured for years to come. Her new owner will not only be acquiring a superyacht of premium pedigree, but will be continuing a legacy of luxury and adventure.
