Luxury sailing yacht ‘Drumbeat’ (ex Salperton) was designed by the renowned Dubois Naval Architects and built by Alloy Yachts. At 174' ‘Drumbeat’ is one of the largest pleasure craft ever built in New Zealand and one of the most magnificent luxury sailing yachts launched anywhere in 2002. Drumbeat is a high-performance luxury ketch, which although able to provide exhilarating sailing speeds of over 15 knots, and much higher, she also provides great sailing comfort, sea worthiness and space. Drumbeat is available for charter in the Mediterranean and Caribbean Seas as well as more exotic locations around the globe.
Sailing Yacht DRUMBEAT has completed a major interior refit in 2005. The yachts interior has been redesigned to reflect the simplicity and beauty of the lines of this head turning sailing yacht. The colors, materials and furniture are designed for relaxed comfort. She offers the highest standard of lighting which gives the option of setting the appropriate mood throughout the yacht. The overall feeling on Drumbeat is one of casual elegance.
The design places a premium on good crew accommodations. Consequently, the general arrangement had to accommodate six crew cabins all with ensuite facilities and able to sleep two people even though the yacht would generally carry a compliment of nine. The crew mess also had to be spacious and inviting.
The owner’s suite is very spacious, occupying the full beam of the yacht towards the stern and there would be four double guest cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms. These requirements pointed to a very large yacht, requiring high levels of experience and skill in the design and construction.
Sailing yacht Drumbeat has the following amenities and extras: Communications equipment: GSM, Mini M & Iridium Cellular telephones (Europe & USA), Water sports equipment: Castoldi 21 foot RIB - water jet - with weather protection Avon 4.5 metre RIB with 50 hp outboard, Yamaha wave runner, 2 x wind surfers, 4 x dive and snorkelling gear, 4 x mountain bikes, 3 x sea canoes, Audiovisual Equipment: Each cabin has individual CD/radios and DVD players. Other equipment: Multi gym, Exercise bike and rowing machine.
