Charter deal of the week: the 37.18m Zeepaard


In this series of articles, we take a look at the best charter deals currently on offer, as judged by our very own editors. What, Why, Where and Who forms the basis of the articles. This week we look at the 37.18 metre superyacht Zeepaard, which is now available for charter in St. Barths over the Christmas and New Year period.

What is on offer?

New to the charter market is the 37.18 metre superyacht Zeepaard, which was built by the French shipyard JFA in 2003. The all aluminium vessel was designed in her entirety by the renowned Dutch brand Vripack. She easily accommodates up to 10 guests over four double en suite cabins and a commodious, full beam owner’s suite, as well as a crew of seven.

The large owner’s suite comes complete with a dedicated sauna and spa, emphasising the ultimate in rest and relaxation whilst on board.

After undergoing an extensive refit which was completed in 2011, her Dutch owner travelled over 72,000 nm over a six year period, visiting a total of 44 countries - a true testament to her circumnavigational abilities. In regards to her performance, she is powered by twin CAT 3406E DITA engines of 475 hp each, which give her a top speed of 13 knots, and a cruising speed of 9.5 knots.

Why do we think this is such a good deal?

Winner of the 2015 Antigua Charter Show Chef Competition and Tablescaping Competition, the superyacht experience on board Zeepaard is guaranteed to live up to the highest of expectations. Inside, she has a cosy, welcoming and sophisticated ambiance, whilst outside she boasts generous deck spaces. One of her most unique features is a crow’s nest on the mast which offers guests the opportunity to take in some of the most spectacular 360 degree views.

Furthermore, Zeepaard also comes with a wealth of toys for guests to take advantage of, including two 25’ Tenders, Wave Runners, kayaks, two sailboats and bicycles.

When is she available?

Zeepaard’s winter base is in St. Maarten, and she will be available in St. Barths throughout the Christmas and New Year period at a rate of $110,000 per week in addition to all expenses. For other dates in the Caribbean, her rate is $95,000 per week plus expenses.
