They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover – and it seems the true is same of megayachts.
Some may think this boat pictured visiting Plymouth today looks nothing out of the ordinary.
However, it is actually a luxury superyacht with a reported value of around $120million dollars – about £95million in real money, it boasts its own beach club, a helipad – and even a garage… but it still wasn’t the most expensive ship in The Sound this afternoon.
She was pictured in Plymouth Sound with a Royal Navy Type 23 Frigate and the Brittany Ferries’ Armorique in the background.
A Type 23 Frigate, also known as Duke class, is a type of frigate built for the Navy and specialises in hunting enemy submarines.
Sherpa’s owner, whom is supposedly British billionaire chemical engineer turned financier and industrialist, Sir James Radcliffe, requested that the megayacht generated an industrial look with a sturdy finish and exposed welding and plate work. This explorer design allows Sherpa to carry lots of equipment on her travels, with lots of transportation and logistics options available to the owner.
Sherpa is one of the most unique megayachts delivered from Feadship. The interior can accomodate up to 13 guests with 6 cabins, whilst allowing 22 members of cabin crew make the experience as luxurious as possible.
Although the exterior of Sherpa looks quite basic and rugged, the interior is nothing of the sort. The amenities Sherpa has to offer include air conditioning, a helipad, tender garage, barbeque, beach club, stabilisers underway and underwater lights.
Sherpa sure is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to megayachts, however, she is not believed to be available to private charter, but we can appreciate her from a distance.
