Built by Holland Jachtbouw and launched in 2012, motor yacht Calliope measures 42.28 m (139ft) and is a semi-displacement aluminium vessel designed by renowned Langan Design Associates with exquisite interior by Rhoades Young.

Her interior can be described as contemporary-classic, with weathered limed oak finishes, contrasting the stylish classical architecture, complemented with modern furniture. One of the most important features of the superyacht Calliope is her offset spiral staircase, boldly connecting the three decks. Panoramic views up through the sweeping underside of the steps make it a striking centrepiece.
