Paloma is one of just a handful of large classic yachts available on the market and is primed for an owner looking for a small slice of history.

Paloma first hit the water in 1965 and was custom-built by Japanese shipyard Ishikawajima-Harima. Designed for extensive world cruising, she boasts a 4,000 nautical mile range paired with zero speed stabilisers and a plush interior. In her lifetime she has had just two owners and has been the recipient of numerous refits. Between 2003 and 2004 she was completely rebuilt - crossing the Atlantic 20 times since to prove her mettle – with a further two refits in 2018 and 2020.

A large main saloon sits at the centre of the action with a formal dining table that can extend to seat up to 14 guests. Most meals, however, will be served al fresco on the aft deck with a U-shaped sofa nestled into her rounded canoe stern. Other highlights include a wood-panelled sky lounge with elegant parquet flooring with a vintage-style bar for aperitifs and a sweeping upper aft deck.

Paloma can sleep up to 12 guests across seven en suite cabins. Guest accommodation resides on the lower deck and comprises two doubles, two twins and two single berths, while a master suite is found forward on the main deck, benefiting from far-reaching ocean views.

Paloma is asking €14,250,000 with Camper & Nicholsons.
