S/Y Drumbeat for charter in Southeast Asia
Published: Wednesday, 23 October 2013
The classic fast cruising ketch Drumbeat, built by Alloy Yachts in 2002 and designed by Ed Dubois, will be available for luxury yacht charter in Southeast Asia as of this winter. A specific itinerary has not been laid down by her charter agent, but it will likely include luxury cruising in Indonesia, an increasingly popular destination with superyachts. S/Y Drumbeat has been cruising the Pacific Ocean frequently over the past few years.
Drumbeat (ex-Salperton) has a complete set of tenders and toys for charter guests, including two sailing dinghies to enjoy local waters, whilst at anchor. There are also six sets of Scuba gear available for those wanting to explore below the surface. The superyacht is beamy at over 10 metres maximum beam against its 53-metre LOA, while accommodation is extensive, with a master cabin, two double VIP guest cabins and two twin cabins, allowing for three families or a large charter party to be onboard. In addition to the onboard luxuries, Drumbeat has a complete set of satcomm equipment, allowing guests to stay in touch with the world if need be. A crew of 11 is available to serve guests and assist with operations.
Drumbeat is well-known as a performing sailing yacht, despite her roominess, and can record speeds of up to 15 knots while under sail. She is available for charter through Burgess Yachts.
