FABULOUS CHARACTER is an award-winning tri-deck motor yacht. This 42.3m yacht was designed by Langan design Associates and built and launched by Holland
Jachtbouw in 2010.

Built to the most rigorous standards, FABULOUS CHARACTER is equipped with the latest of technical developments in sound abatement, stabilizer technology and electronic navigation. She also features a highly specified and fully integrated bridge. The sturdy, seaworthy design guarantees the smoothest of travels at a top-cruising speed of 16.5 knots. Stabilizers ensure that the stay on board is also comfortable while the boat is at anchor.

Fabulous Character accommodates ten guests, spread over five luxurious guest cabins. Her crew quarters can accommodate up to nine crew members.


FABULOUS CHARACTER'S contemporary modern-classic interior was inspired by the idea of combining elegant, classical architecture with carefully chosen, modern furniture and finished in limed oak and teak.

The interior spaces include a relaxed lounge and dining area on the main deck. The sky lounge is located on the bridge deck, which is largely covered with teak and spans the entire width of the yacht. Below the bridge deck, inside and outside, merge together when opening the large, classic sliding doors between the aft deck and the salon.

In accordance with the classic-modern style mix throughout, the bridge is fitted with
classic teak. It features a state-of-the-art front bridge console, which is finished in leather and rosewood and is fitted with floating screens. Above the bridge deck is an expansive sundeck with a jacuzzi as the centerpiece, surrounded by chairs, large sunbeds and a seating area for great casual lounging.


A well-conceived layout that maximizes comfort for the guests. FABULOUS CHARACTER offers a full-beam master suite replete with private study and his/her ensuite shower-rooms. A further four staterooms can be found on the lower deck, allowing the yacht to accommodate up to 10 guests.


Master Suite: A generous full-beam suite with a king-size bed and comfortable lounge area. Separate his/hers ensuite shower-rooms have spacious showers with  marble counters and floors. The dressing area has ample storage space. The adjoining master study is elegantly furnished with a desk, chairs and a large window offering natural light and a beautiful view.

Overall, the décor is stylishly wrought in light oak with a high-quality, durable finish that appears hand rubbed in the French style with perfectly matched stainless fixtures and soft fabrics. Large windows allow plenty of natural light and scenic views. Satellite HDTV, DVD and high-fidelity stereo AV system.

Foyer: A marble floor matches the spiral staircase that connects all interior decks. A guest day head is aft of the master suite study.

Dining Salon: The dining salon is partially open to the main salon, Shoji Pocket Doors can be shut for complete privacy between the dining and main salons when desired. The formal dining table, a magnificent oval with burled veneer, fine inlays, Duncan Fife-like legs, and a classic dental edge, is centered under a sculptured residential style chandelier that punctuates the understated elegance of the space. Up to 10 guests can dine comfortably.

Main Salon: Elegant décor, comfortable in every respect with a subtle Asian motif. Silk carpet over hardwood flooring with the carpet being removable when hosting cocktail parties. Symmetrical seating on sofas either side and 4 easy chairs. Teak French-style double doors open to the aft deck. Large windows give the salon a bright and airy feel.

Guest Staterooms: Both forward staterooms have two oversized single beds, and the aft staterooms have queen-sized beds. All cabins feature ensuite shower-rooms. Great attention during the build was given to reduce sound and vibration in this area.

Beach Club: The transom door opens to form a “beach club” area for water activities and easy boarding of guests to and from the tender. A gym area features in the covered area. This can only be accessed from the outside.


The sky lounge on the bridge deck has an impressive open feel. Tropical teak, white trim, and custom-built Indonesian cabinetry perfectly blend to create a unique, relaxing environment.
