by Malcolm MacLean
The 69.65 metre motor yacht Sherakhan has had a central agency change and is now jointly listed for sale with Fraser and IYC.
Sturdily built in steel and aluminium, she was delivered by Holland’s Vuyk en Zonen yard in 1965 and entirely rebuilt as a luxury superyacht in 2005 with further refits in 2008 and 2015. This yacht for sale sleeps 26 guests and 19 crew in a spacious interior. Guest accommodation comprises 13 cabins laid out as a master suite, VIP suite, seven doubles and four twins. All double cabins have king size beds and all suites are equipped with a television screen, DVD, stereo, mini bar, safe, air conditioning, and a vanity table / desk. There is also WiFi internet access throughout the yacht.
The large open mezzanine saloon of nearly six metres in height has a huge dining table seating 24 guests and natural light streaming down through the pool in the deck above. The relaxation area is furnished with couches, armchairs, a bar, grand piano and an entertainment centre including a Samsung 55 inch LCD television screen.
Sherakhan was designed and built for the charter market and major efforts have been made to maximise opportunities to enjoy the numerous outdoor areas. Thus, she offers a spa with a 10-person sauna, a fully equipped gymnasium and a huge glass-bottomed Jacuzzi for 22 people on the top deck. Naturally, there are numerous spots to enjoy al fresco cocktails and meals.
The range of water toys is extensive and includes two tenders, two Yamaha jet skis, two Yamaha Waverunners, a Laser dinghy, floating trampoline, scuba diving sets, a kayak and fishing tackle. Twin 1,380hp Caterpillar diesel engines give her a cruising range of 9,000 nautical miles.
Currently in the Caribbean, Sherakhan is asking €24,500,000.
