The 53-metre ketch-rigged sailing yacht Drumbeat has joined the sales fleet with Groupe Atalante. Delivered by New Zealand-based yard Alloy Yachts in 2002, the all-aluminium vessel is a proven speedster as well as a highly popular charter platform thanks to her well-appointed deck spaces and well-maintained interiors.
The vessel has been under the same ownership since 2007 with the same captain at the helm since 2009, which has kept her in a rigorous maintenance routine. Her most refit was in 2022 and she has recently completed her 20-year Lloyd's Register survey.
Large wraparound windows, a trademark Dubois Naval Architects feature, invite an abundance of light and 360º views into the main saloon. Coffee and cream-tone interiors are courtesy of George Spencer, where glossy woods are offset by cream furnishings.
Her accommodation configuration comprises 11 guests in five cabins, including the large master suite aft with an adjacent sitting area and four large guest cabins.
An ideal spot for relaxing, sundowners or informal dining, the main deck is home to a protected cockpit with a permanent awning for shade. Meanwhile, the large flybridge is a continuation of the yacht's expansive exterior space and acts as the principal helm position – encouraging lots of active participation when sailing.
Drumbeat boasts an impressive sailing performance and is endowed with long-range abilities under sail or power (8,000 nautical miles at 10 knots). Fitted with Marten spars carbon masts and booms, as well as a pair of Caterpillar diesel engines, she provides exhilarating sailing at speeds up to 23 knots and regularly at 16/17 knots.
Drumbeat is asking €22,000,000 with Groupe Atalante.
