Drumbeat is on a world adventure and is available for charter in various exotic locations around the globe.

Sailing Yacht DRUMBEAT completed a major interior refit in 2005/2014, with extensive exterior work done in 2019. 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 carry a complement 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.
