Impulse was built by British superyacht yard Sunseeker International and was delivered in 2007. MCA compliant, a large main saloon comes with comfortable settees, occasional chairs, a sound system and television screen while accommodation is for up to nine guests in four staterooms plus four crew. The master suite is full beam and the VIP stateroom has a queen sized bed. To aft and starboard there are two nearly identical twin cabins, the starboard one having a Pullman berth. All staterooms have full en suite bathroom facilities.
Twin Caterpillar 1,800hp engines give her a cruising speed of 23 knots. Since launch, Impulse has achieved her owner’s target of eight weeks charter between May and October each year at an average charter rate of €50,000 per week. One proud owner and one dedicated captain from new have ensured that she has been extremely well maintained.
On display at the Cannes yacht show this week, Impulse is down from €2.65 million to €2.45 million.
