What is on offer? 

The 69.65-metre Sherakhan was built in 1966 by the Dutch yard Vuyk en Zonen and converted into an expedition superyacht in 2005, undergoing an extensive refit in 2017. Her beautiful interior is from the drawing boards of Claudia Rijntjes, with her exterior design by Verkerk Yachting Projects

On board, Sherakhan accommodates up to 26 guests across 13 luxurious and individually-styled guest cabins, comprising one master suite, two VIP suites, four double cabins and six twin cabins. With power provided by her Caterpillar 3508B DITA diesel engine, Sherakhan has a maximum speed of 13 knots, and a cruising speed of 11 knots.
