one of the most luxurious yachts in the world, 80-metres long Talitha G, and headed for Hvar. The yacht
moored near Paklenski otoci archipelago, near Hvar and far enough from public view.
The 80.2m Talitha G motor yacht epitomises sheer
elegance and style. The yacht was launched in 1929 and completely rebuilt in 1993 in Devonport, Florida. It was
fully refitted in 2000. Talitha G features open fireplaces, jacuzzi on the top deck, entertainment system and
interior done in a relaxed, bohemian stately home style. The yacht can be chartered from Eastcoastyachtcruises.com.
It cruises in the Mediterranean and the Craibbean.
After arriving to Hvar, Nicky Hilton went to the
