DRUMBEAT - Luxury sailing yacht charter boat - Dubois

Yacht Charter Description

Luxury sailing yacht DRUMBEAT (ex Salperton) was designed by the renowned Dubois Naval Architects and built by Alloy Yachts. At 174' ‘Drumbeat’ is one of the largest pleasure craft ever built in New Zealand and one of the most magnificent luxury sailing yachts launched anywhere in 2002. Drumbeat is a high-performance luxury ketch, which although able to provide exhilarating sailing speeds of over 15 knots, and much higher, she also provides great sailing comfort, sea worthiness and space. Drumbeat is on a world adventure and is available for charter in the South Pacific as well as other exotic locations around the globe.


Sailing Yacht DRUMBEAT has completed a major interior refit in 2005/2014. The yachts interior has been redesigned to reflect the simplicity and beauty of the lines of this head turning sailing yacht. The colors, materials and furniture are designed for relaxed comfort. She offers the highest standard of lighting which gives the option of setting the appropriate mood throughout the yacht. The overall feeling on Drumbeat is one of casual elegance.

The design places a premium on good crew accommodations. Consequently, the general arrangement had to accommodate six crew cabins all with ensuite facilities and able to sleep two people even though the yacht would generally carry a compliment of nine. The crew mess also had to be spacious and inviting.

The owner’s suite is very spacious, occupying the full beam of the yacht towards the stern and there would be four double guest cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms. These requirements pointed to a very large yacht, requiring high levels of experience and skill in the design and construction.

DRUMBEAT underwent a major interior re-styling in 2007/2008. The interior was redesigned to reflect the simplicity and beauty of the lines of this stunning sailing yacht. The colours, materials and furniture are designed for comfort. Lighting is of the highest standard giving the option of setting the appropriate mood to the saloon and throughout the yacht. The overall feeling is one of casual elegance.
