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. The yacht recently underwent another facelift, changing her exterior from the once famous blue hull into an all-white finish as is seen here where she was anchored off Monaco earlier this summer.
