Luxury sailing yacht DRUMBEAT was designed by the renowned Dubois Naval Architects and built by Alloy Yachts. At 174 feet, 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 on a world adventure and is available for charter in the South Pacific as well as other exotic locations around the globe.
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. The crew’s quarters are also spacious and comfortable for up to 12 though the usual full crew compliment is 9.
DRUMBEAT underwent a major interior re-styling in 2007/2008. The interior was redesigned to reflect the simplicity and beauty of the lines of this stunning sailing yacht. The colors, materials and furniture are designed for comfort. Lighting is of the highest standard giving the option of setting the appropriate mood to the saloon and throughout the yacht. The overall feeling is one of casual elegance.
Drumbeats’s (ex Salperton) layout has the main cockpit, saloon, formal dining area and pilothouse on the same level. This space plan is quite unique on a sailing yacht. The yacht features visibility and straight sight lines which give a feeling of space and light as well as direct but sheltered visual contact with the sea in all areas. Each of her five magnificent guest staterooms has generous natural light. Guest accommodation includes the owner’s suite, three double guest cabins and a twin cabin with an additional pullman berth.
