Built by Alloy Yachts in 2002 and designed by Dubois Naval Architects, the 53 metre Drumbeat easily met her owner’s requirement to combine good sailing performance with comfort, seaworthiness and space. A unique design feature of this large sailing yacht is the layout on one level from cockpit through the saloon and dining area to the forward wheelhouse. This creates an expansive area for entertaining. In 2005 the interior was redesigned to reflect the simplicity and beauty of the lines of this stunning sailing yacht. The colours, materials and furniture are designed for comfort. Lighting has been brought to the highest standard, giving the option of setting the appropriate mood to the saloon and throughout the yacht.
