Charter holidays aboard Drumbeat yacht
Previously known as Salperton, charter yacht Drumbeat is a 174-foot luxury sailing yacht designed by Dubois Naval Architects and is one the largest yachts ever built in New Zealand. She is also one of the most magnificent and important vessels launched in 2002, built by Alloy Yachts.
This high-performance luxury ketch provides the guests aboard with great adventure, thanks to her exhilarating sailing speed of over 15knots and higher, combined with comfort, excellent sea-worthiness and large spaces.
Her simple and elegant interior has received several major refits over the years, from 2004 to 2009. She was designed with good crew accommodation in mind, accommodating crew in 6 cabins all with en-suite facilities, sleeping 2.
The large Owner’s suite is occupying the full beam of the yacht, located towards the stern. There are additional four guest cabins all equipped with en-suite bathrooms.
