About Giga Yacht SHERAKHAN:
Giga Yacht SHERAKHAN (69.65m / 228’) is a dream come through for anyone looking for a special occasion venue. With the latest refit in 2010/11, she has numerous facilities which can only be found on a super yacht of this size. The most impressive of them all are the massive 7m atrium flooded in natural light which filters down through the glass bottomed Jacuzzi, the 18-seater Jacuzzi itself as well as the watch house located just above the sundeck, which provides feeling of freedom and belonging when standing more than 60’ above the water line. Sherakhan is an impressive mega yacht and she towers high above most other yachts on the quay, allowing her guests to enjoy a bird’s-eye view wherever she anchors. She is also one of the largest-capacity charter yachts in the world.  
Although she is normally available in the more traditional cruising areas of the West Mediterranean and the Eastern Caribbean, Sherakhans crew will be keen to accept charters further afield. Once in a lifetime sailing adventure to places like Western Caribbean, South America around Patagonia, Antarctica, French Polynesia, Asia, or Panama channel and Galapagos under circumstances, are all going to be considered.  

More about SHERAKHAN:
This boat came into being thanks to a visionary owner. Given the limitations most charter yachts have, with a space for maximum of up to 12 guests sleeping and cruising, there was a need for more boats which can cater for larger parties, extended families, celebrity teams or corporate events.  As a result, Sherakhans’ new owner, the Dutch Jan Verkerk, who previously owned the 37m super yacht Jaguar, was inspired to create a new type of mega charter yacht. First and foremost, this boat was supposed to be offering accommodation for more than 20 guests while meeting all international regulations for taking more than the typical 12 charter guests on board. The result was purchase of the abandoned Princess Margaret ship and her transformation in what she is today, the SHERAKHAN, one of the finest giga yachts available for mega yacht charter in the world.


On board of Sherakhan, you are free to enjoy the best holiday on earth and to experience the finest life as if you were a queen or a king in your own floating palace. The spacious deck areas offer plenty of room to sunbathe in luxury. The one of a kind Jacuzzi on the sun deck, if used only by yourself and those close to your heart will allow you to you experience the best feeling in the world. You can dine outdoors on the upper deck of the yacht enjoying your meal with the uninterrupted sea views, or for special occasions arrange a party or in the fabulous dining room spread across two different decks.  Whatever you wish to do, our charter broker, your captain and the professional super yacht crew will make it happen.

Conference or a corporate event on giga yacht SHERAKHAN is likely to enhance the success of your special occasion.  Business facilities such as telephone, internet, PC and fax are readily available.
