Paloma is one of very few large classic motor yachts available. Paloma is a tri-deck world cruiser and was custom built by the Ishikawajima-Harima shipyard in Japan for the experienced. owner of a famous Greek shipping company.
Launched in 1965, the yacht was later sold to an equally experienced owner and was then totally rebuilt in 2003/04. Since her rebuild, the yacht has crossed the Atlantic an impressive 20 times, evidencing her confident capability. Paloma underwent further comprehensive refits in 2018 and 2020 and the classic vessel is offered for sale in fully operational condition, having had just two owners since new.
With a Trans-Pacific range she offers unencumbered, extensive worldwide cruising. Paloma has an elongated bow and a charming canoe stern, which give her an elegant, sleek profile and a timeless style.
Paloma is ideal for large families and offers accommodation for up to 14 guests in seven suites. The guest accommodation is found on the lower deck and comprises two double cabins and two twins, all ensuite, plus two single berth cabins that share a shower room. Each of the cabins sports a different colour scheme, and all of the ensuites are finished in cream marble.
The full-beam master stateroom, with his-and-hers ensuite, is extremely spacious and is located forward on the main deck.
Also on the main deck is Paloma’s large saloon and formal dining area, which can be arranged as a cosy space for more intimate meals, or the table can be extended to seat 14 guests for large-scale entertaining. Forward of the main saloon there’s a study space and adjacent cinema room with large Plasma screen television. To aft, the rounded canoe stern lends itself to a sweeping bank of U-shaped sofas, and a dining table for 14 sits nestled between the seating and the main saloon.
Ascending to the upper deck, there’s a wood-panelled sky lounge with beautiful parquet flooring. The lounge hosts an elegant bar counter and a Karaoke system has been installed, along with a Plasma TV, Satellite TV and DVD setup. Moving through to the aft deck, the large open space is exceptionally versatile, with plenty of room for freestanding lounge furniture and sun beds. There’s also another al fresco dining table on this deck, which can be shaded by an electric bimini.
Topping Paloma’s credentials is the sun deck, where a Jacuzzi takes centre stage and enjoys wonderful, elevated views.
Paloma carries her tenders on the foredeck and these are deployed and recovered by crane. The sun deck is also equipped with a crane and this space can be used for additional tender and toy stowage.
