Expedition superyacht Zeepaard now for sale at Northrop & Johnson
by Malcolm MacLean
Formerly known as Axantha, she was built to Lloyd’s class by France’s JFA yard to a design by Vripack and launched in 2003. In 2011, she completed a refit including a paint job. A proven ocean-going vessel, her owner undertook a three-year cruise around the world on her, covering 50,000 nautical miles and visiting 39 countries.
Zeepaard can accommodate up to 10 guests in five cabins laid out as a master suite and four double staterooms. All have en suite bathroom facilities and she has been immaculately maintained by professional crew. Twin 475hp Caterpillar engines give her a cruising speed of 13 knots and a range of 7,000 nautical miles.
Zeepaard will be available to view during the Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show, lying at the nearby Miami Beach Marina. Her asking price is €11.75 million VAT paid.
