Dec 02, Colombo: The Port City Colombo Marina welcomed the MY Kalizma – The Classic Superyacht, once owned by Hollywood screen idols Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

The first Superyacht to sail into the Port City Colombo Marina, established Colombo as a calling port in the Indian Ocean with facilities for berthing luxury Superyachts.

Pierre Pringiers, Chairman of the Sail Lanka Yachting Group which manages the Port City Colombo Marina said, the 145’ Kalizma – built in 1906 by GL Watson in Scotland – arrived from the Maldives on Sunday, marking a milestone in the development of Colombo as a Superyacht destination.

“To see this historic Superyacht berthed at the marina is the fulfilment of a dream for me, and is a fitting tribute to our staff who have efficiently handled the logistics and administrative details. I also want to express my sincere thanks to the officials of the Port City Colombo and the Customs, Immigration, and all the agencies involved. I’m hoping that the arrival of Kalizma will augur well for the success of visiting Superyachts and the opening up of Sri Lanka for cruising and yacht charters – one of the new pillars of the tourism industry.”
