Salem, built as Cumulus in 1963 as an ocean weather ship, and converted to a yacht in 1998, has now come onto the market for the first time since her conversion into a yacht.
Her refit in 1998 at the Devonport shipyard in the United Kingdom included: replacing her engines, generators, air-conditioning, and stabilizers, as well as fitting her with a highly luxurious interior.
Salem measures 73.6m in length, and has a displacement of 524 tons. Powered by her single 3996 horsepower MAN B&W Alpha Diesel engine, Salem cruises at 14 knots, allowing for a range of 2141nm. When cruising at 10 knots Salem has a range of 5116nm. Salem is classed Bureau Veritas.
Given her unique shape, Salem offers tremendous interior volume on 5 decks, as well as lots of deck space for entertaining. With accommodation for 48 guests, and 43 crewmembers, Salem offers roughly the same space and interior volume as a 100 meter yacht.
Refitted for a Middle Eastern client, Salem offers a rather unusual layout, where men and women are accommodated on different sets of self contained decks. A design feature seen on only a handful of other superyachts.
This highly luxurious and refreshingly different vessel is offered by Edmiston. Sharply priced at $19.750.000 Salem offers extraordinary space for a vessel of her size.
Salem is currently berthed in Palma de Mallorca.
