Built in 1965, SHERAKHAN acted as a trading ship for the Dutch Maritime Institute before a complete rebuild in 2005 and a refit in 2014, transforming her into a luxury Superyacht.

A hugely successful charter yacht with expansive and versitile interior and deck spaces, comfortably accommodating up to 26 guests.

Proven global explorer. As comfortable cruising South America and Antarctica as she is in the Caribbean.
