Brokerage deal of the week: the 69m converted superyacht Sherakhan

Written by Gemma Fottles

Here we take a look at the What, Why, Where and Who of some of the best brokerage deals currently on the market. This week we explore the 69.65m converted superyacht Sherakhan, currently listed for sale with IYC.

What is on offer?

Originally built by the A. Vuyk & Zonen yard in 1966, the 69.65-metre Sherakhan underwent a transformational refit in 2004 which saw her converted into a luxury yacht. In 2014 she underwent another major refit, this time at Icon Yachts in the Netherlands, which brought her fully up to modern day luxury standards. Since her departure from Icon Yachts, Sherakhan has enjoyed a very successful charter schedule, exploring some of the most adventurous charter destinations in the world.

On board she accommodates up to 26 guests over 13 cabins (commercially registered for 26 guests), as well as a crew of 19. Performance wise she has a top speed of 13 knots, a cruising speed of 11 knots, and a range of 3,500 nm at cruising speed consuming 400 litres per hour.

Why do we think this is such a great deal?
Sherakhanโ€™s interior is highly unique, characterised by individual spaces including themed staterooms, each with its own personality and flair. The master suite includes its own private ownerโ€™s deck, separate study that can convert into an additional cabin and a Jacuzzi in the bedroom. Communal spaces include large salons and lounges, a fully equipped gym, spa and themed massage room, with each again boasting their own individual style and drawing on a range of beautiful and opulent materials.

Memorable dining experiences are at the heart of life on board Sherakhan with dining set ups both inside and out, ensuring ample choice for both formal dinners and relaxed al fresco dining alike. As with the interior, exterior spaces have been maximised and there are multiple options for guests to make use of, from the many sun loungers and sun pads to an 18-person Jacuzzi. An exciting range of toys and tenders ensure guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to on-water activities, with her inventory including jet skis, laser dinghies, a floating trampoline, fishing equipment, kayaks and more.

Where is she right now?

Sherakhan has recently left Gibraltar and has just arrived in the Mediterranean. She is listed at an asking price of โ‚ฌ24,500,000.
