Calvin Klein’s super yacht spotted in Vanuatu

An article by Yacht Harbour on top 5 super yachts owned by fashion designers has Calvin Klein’s Vantage which was spotted in Vanuatu this week with Ad-Vantage.

Trending on YTS this week is a discussion on ghostly yachts visiting Vanuatu’s outer island ports, after the Vintage and Advantage were seen diving around Lamap Harbour in Malekula earlier this week.

This got the community of Lamap scared of the foreigners tampering with their marine resources and the head of the Ports and Harbour, Henry Worek, came to clear the ghost ship as Vantage and Advantage.

“Both vessels are classed as Super yachts and they are hear to dive around our coral reefs and also engage in game fishing”, the director posted on YTS group discussion.

“Fiji is a hub, and Vanuatu is trying to tap into this Super yacht market for the benefit of everyone, and with such super yachts, they can keep expensive toys on board and we have everything under control”, he assured everyone who were raising their concern on the mini submarine.

Take a look at VANTAGE and AD-VANTAGE at play in Tahiti in the amazing video below, shared by Oceania Marine and released by Superyacht Private Expeditions, specializing in dive explorations for private and charter yachts, customizing trips anywhere in the world. The two outstanding vessels were both beautifully refitted by the New Zealand-based Oceania Marine.

Firstly, Oceania Marine undertook a full re-paint and other works on the 46M Palmer Johnson VANTAGE, and subsequently the shipyard performed the conversion of AD-VANTAGE into a luxurious 53M shadow boat. Destined for the same client, both projects had very tight timeframes, with the Oceania Marine team delivering excellent performance.

Both vessels are currently based in the South Pacific and Oceania Marine is supplying continued support to them in such breath-taking exotic locations as Tahiti.


The 149.90ft /45.69m PJ 150 open ‘Vantage’ was built in 2010 by Palmer Johnson and last refitted in 2015. Nuvolari & Lenard is responsible for her beautiful exterior and interior design.

Vantage’s interior layout sleeps up to 12 guests in 5 rooms, including a master suite, 2 double cabins, 2 twin cabins and 2 pullman beds. She is also capable of carrying up to 9 crew onboard to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience. Timeless styling, beautiful furnishings and sumptuous seating feature throughout to create an elegant and comfortable atmosphere.

Vantage’s impressive leisure and entertainment facilities make her the ideal charter yacht for socialising and entertaining with family and friends.


She is built with Aluminium hull and Aluminium superstructure. This semi custom PJ 150 planing yacht also features ‘at anchor stabilisers’ which work at zero speed, increasing onboard comfort at anchor and on rough waters. Vantage is built to comply to MCA and Lloyds Register standards. With a cruising speed of 20 knots, a maximum speed of 25 knots and a range of 1,000nm from her 40,000litre fuel tanks, she is the perfect combination of performance and luxury.
