Ketch 26M - Meta IV

Length - Beam
25.3 - 5.7 m

Meta IV was built as a private yacht for a Swiss businessman who made his fortune in the hotel industry in 1998. Herbert Mayrhauser, an Austrian captain, met her on a dock in Phuket in 2010 and fell in love with her right away. Meta IV began her new life as a luxury charter yacht in the fall of 2012, after two years of rigorous restoration and refitting.

The naval architect Thomas E. Colvin was responsible for the vessel's attractive form and sturdy hull. She's totally built of Thai teak, one of the greatest timbers for classic boat construction.

Meta IV has a length of 85 feet (25 meters). That makes it longer than the Santa Maria, the ship on which Columbus sailed into history when he found the Americas. In fact, with all of her room, you'd almost forget you were on a boat. The sheer size of the ship, as well as the amenities on board, make for a memorable vacation for your family or friends.

It's your once-in-a-lifetime excursion. And the crew of Meta IV will do all in their power to make it an unforgettable experience. Take the wheel, cruise the waterways, or simply unwind and nap in the sun.

Meta IV features four guest accommodations, all of which are fully air conditioned and equipped with ensuite bathrooms and electric toilets. Two cabins have queen-size beds, while the other two have twin beds. The triple stateroom is located behind the cockpit. The whole aft of the boat is covered, with several eating places and sunning spots.

The spacious galley and saloon eating space occupy the boat's center. However, chances are you'll be eating the majority of your meals outside in the sun or in Myanmar's warm nights.


This crewed sailing yacht is available for yacht charter with a base price of 22 400 € (approximatly 25 298 $).

yacht faq

Whether you are looking for a family vacation in the Caribbean, whether you are looking for adventure or a safe and secure environment to party with friends, WI Yachts allows you to organize your stay according to the planning, itinerary, and activities of your choice in absolute luxury. You will enjoy an unparalleled level of comfort and service. You will then be able to truly escape and access unique and isolated places.
In a bareboat charter, the charterer is responsible for the provisioning of the yacht. If you have your boat license and solid sailing experience, you will be able to steer your boat yourself. If your nautical CV is not sufficient, we can offer you bareboat charters with the services of a skipper and/or hostess/cook. Nevertheless, you will legally remain the charterer and therefore the person in charge of the boat and its navigation.
Crewed boat charters concern boats between 16 and 20 m with a crew (skipper, hostess, sailor) dedicated to a specific yacht. The crew takes care of you and the boat. The vessels we offer are in excellent condition and have professional crews offering a top-of-the-range service.
The chartering of a luxury yacht, over 20 meters in length, is a unique experience, masterfully orchestrated by your WI Yacht broker, taking care of your preferences and requirements, because every detail counts. Do you have any questions about crewed charters?
Your yacht must meet your needs in terms of size and capacity. A modern motor yacht will, for example, be suitable for a family charter by offering beautiful spaces. A sailing yacht will be a fantastic choice for a boating enthusiast.
For bareboat charters, the yacht itself with its insurance. Your broker will be able to tell you the price of a crew and other services such as provisioning. You will have to pay the deposit and the requested options upon delivery of the boat.
For crewed and luxury types of charters, the charter of the yacht itself with its insurance, water toys (jet ski, seabob, kayak etc.) and the crew's salary are included. Some contracts include food and up to 4 hours of engine operation. For others, in addition to the rental price, you may have to pay VAT (the rate varies depending on the sailing area), and an advance provisioning allowance (APA) to cover the cost of food and drinks, fuel, port and mooring fees, communication or delivery costs.
