Named after a ‘warm desert wind’, Shamoun combines the elegance of the past with the comfort of the present.
The 33-metre aluminum cutter was the last classic yacht to have been built in the 20th Century. She was designed by Andre Hoek and built by Klaasen Shipyard, Netherlands, in 1999 and launched just before the new millennium. The 33-metre luxury sailing yacht combines modern performance standards with classic grace. Constructed out of aluminum, her lifting keel allows entry into shallow harbours and secluded bays where other yachts of her size cannot venture. Her perfectly proportioned deck-house and her deep and curling cockpit enhance her classic shape. The huge wheel, traditional binnacle and many dorades add to her timeless style.
With her open-plan accommodation, Shamoun becomes a real home away from home. Offering an overall theme of subtle Honduras Mahogany and cream paneling with chestnut flooring, she eludes elegance and style whilst allowing an informal atmosphere. Charter guests can enjoy four double staterooms, all ensuite. Two of the staterooms can convert into a twin, for added flexibility for families or odd number parties.
Yacht Shamoun runs with a crew of five. They are all professionals within the industry and strive to keep Shamoun in pristine condition. They will ensure that guests on Shamoun have a splendid experience aboard, and take home some magnificent memories.
