Designed by G.L. Watson and built by Ramage & Ferguson, The Kalizma was one of the first steam powered yachts to have electric lighting. She served as Auxiliary Patrol Yacht during WW1, after which she competed in races in the UK and USA. During WW2, she was responsible for saving lives of crewmen from over 1100 vessels that were downed in conflict before being discharged of her duties in 1946.
Richard Burton is said to have bought the KALIZMA as a gift to Elizabeth Taylor after she earned an Academy award for her performance in "Who's afraid of Virginia Wolf" and it is on this vessel that he presented her with a 69 carat diamond that was subsequently named the Taylor-Burton Diamond.
The KALIZMA's interior is cozy, with a large salon that boasts a comfortable sofa and armchairs around a coffee table and facing a TV. Other chairs are placed here and there in this area, allowing for separate conversations as well as large groups. A large dining room seats 10/12 guests in comfort and style.
