7 March 2014By Malcolm MacLean

Notable news from Thorsten Giesbert at Fraser Yachts that he's listed for sale the 24m aluminium performance sailing yacht Drumfire.

Designed by Andre Hoek, she was built by Dutch specialist yard Bloemsma and launched in 2006, and she underwent 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 staterooms consisting of an owner's cabin aft with a double berth to port and a single berth to starboard. There are also two guest 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.

The winner of the 2011 Palma Superyacht Cup, Drumfire is asking €2.4 million with VAT paid.
