Sailing yachts Cartouche (left), Drumbeat and Ribelle in St Lucia
Seen here side by side in the Marigot Bay harbour, St Lucia are the three super sailing yachts Cartouche (left), Drumbeat and Ribelle. Drumbeat was built by Alloy Yachts in New Zealand in 2002 to a design by Dubois Naval Architects for world cruising with an impressive cruising range of 8,000 nm. Ribelle, on the other hand, built by Vitters in 2017, is designed for speed and comfortable mid-range passages. Her contemporary design is the at of Malcolm Mckeon Yacht Design. The 95-foot Cartouche was built by Blue Coast Yachts in France and changed hands in 2016, now cruising under her new owner.
