Bloemsma sailing yacht Drumfire sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 24 metre sailing yacht Drumfire is sold with Thorsten Giesbert at Fraser Yachts representing the seller and Pieter van der Weide at Hoek Brokerage acting for the buyer.
Designed by Andre Hoek, Drumfire was built in aluminium by Dutch specialist yard Bloemsma and launched in 2006, with a refit in 2012. She features a classic two cockpit layout, offering space and privacy for owners and guests – especially when moored stern-to. The aft cockpit is dedicated to steering and sailing gear while further forward the centre cockpit is intended for socialising. Below, a timeless interior design has panelling throughout in semi-gloss Swetenia mahogany and flooring in jetobo with maple inlays.
Accommodation is for up to seven guests in three cabins consisting of an owner's cabin aft with a double berth to port and a twin berth to starboard. There are also two crew cabins forward of the saloon, one with a full double berth and one with upper and lower berths. All cabins have en suite bathroom facilities. Under power, a single 185hp Perkins Sabre engine gives her a range of 1,000 nautical miles.
Now on her way to the South Pacific, Drumfire was for sale asking €2.55 million.
