the aft doors, is a spacious semi-circular seating area with umbrellas.
Below the foredeck (in the bow) are the two inflatable 24ft/7.32m tenders with cleverly hidden
(recessed) boat crane. Stairs lead down to the lower guest accommodation and moving aft

divided into two areas:
The dining salon is forward with a large oval table capable of seating up to 26 guests. Stairs
on either side lead up to the overhead balcony. Aft is the main saloon which includes a full wet
bar to starboard, mini-grand piano and dance floor to port and a spacious seating area with
sofas and coffee tables. Through the aft doors is the aft deck exterior dining area with two
circular dining table and chairs. Twin stairways lead below to the aft boarding deck with

entrance/beach platform for easy access to the water and for boarding the ship’s tenders. An
accommodation ladder also serves this platform from the main deck level. The entire aft
section is dedicated to crew accommodation, crew lounge and the main galley with access
below to the machinery spaces.
Forward is the impressive gymnasium and spar area including a 10-person Jacuzzi, sauna,
exercise equipment, changing rooms and shower together with a small bar and seating area.

storage, the engine room, generator room, storage rooms, freezer and refrigerator
SHERAKHAN was originally built in 1965 as a training ship for the Dutch Navy at the Vuyk &
Zonen shipyard, Holland. She was purchased by her present Owner in 2002 and, since then
(until early 2005); she underwent a complete rebuild with virtually everything onboard being
replaced with new.
Completely refaired and painted in 2008.
SHERAKHAN has been constructed, in many ways, with charter in mind, although any
discerning Owner will appreciate the finer attention to detail and solid seaworthy construction
that gives the distinction of a true ocean going ship that is ideally suited for any purpose or
Imagination, style, individualism, flare, unique, robust….. are just some of the words that are
being used to describe her and her Owners’ vision and it is the finished article that will be sure
to impress all who sail in her or come into close proximity with her in the oceans, bays, marinas
and anchorages during her travels.
