The 92.4-metre superyacht, Tatoosh has returned to the charter fleet with Fraser as central agency for charter. Still considered one of the most iconic vessels on the water more than 20 years after delivery, Tatoosh rejoins the charter market following an extensive 2021 refit and with a long list of amenities which includes a cinema, sauna and owner’s apartment among much else.
Delivered in 2000 by Nobiskrug, Tatoosh was originally commissioned to be a home away from home and one that could stick to an ambitious cruising programme, while offering a perfect environment for a family-orientated lifestyle. With this in mind, the yacht’s functionality is deeply ingrained in the design, resulting in an arrangement that would work for the owner’s young family and extensive time at sea.
Terence Disdale was soon brought into the project and tasked with creating a practical arrangement that would make the most of the vessel’s 3,229GT of internal volume. The result was a two-deck owner's apartment with access to an observation lounge and secluded lounge area, with total accommodation for 12 on board, across a staggering 11 cabins. There is complement for a crew of 31.
The styling itself – also the work of Disdale – was a painstaking and meticulous feat, with everything down to the last socket carefully considered. The result is rich, refined and welcoming rather than intimidating, an element that was hugely important for the original owner, and one that has carried through to create the ultimate charter vessel.
On board, there is a fine balance of texture throughout with intricate rattan work, Chippendale armchairs, elegant Georgian occasional tables, and lattice-fronted wardrobes. Her neutral colour palette also calls on the welcoming theme, along with natural wood grains and chenille fabric.
Alongside her elegant interior and vast deck space, the toy-box is another major point in the Tatoosh philosophy. An entire deck – christened “the boat deck” – lends itself to the theme and has davits worked into the exterior lines. Jet skis and paddleboards are also hidden on board for more fun on the water.
The main helipad is high up aft on the bridge deck and there is also an additional touch-and-go helipad on the deck above. The yacht also benefits from a heated contraflow swimming pool on the main deck which can be drained and raised to lie flush with the deck.
Tatoosh’s dive centre, located around the beach club, is also up there with the best, and features an industrial model Bauer compressor and a fill station that can refill four tanks simultaneously; there’s also a nitrox refilling station for deeper dives. The yacht’s ability to travel to the far reaches of the earth makes her a sublime choice for keen divers, and her rock-like stability also means that Tatoosh is quite comfortable taking divers off the beaten track.
Proof of this can be seen in her extensive cruising history with Africa, the Middle East, the Indian Ocean, the Far East and South East Asia all under her belt.
Now under Fraser management, Tatoosh is currently undergoing upgrades which will enable her to offer the ultimate charter experience.
