Zeepaard is built ready for exploration. As a turnkey project, both the interior and exterior, as well as the naval architecture come from Vripack’s drawing boards. Her high bow means she can power through rough seas in remote areas and still easily deflect water. Her voluminous hull (283GT) makes her stable and spacious with minimal pitching motions, while the superstructure provides guests with a comfortable onboard experience. She has circumnavigated the world twice, cruised through the Suez Canal (with ex-military on board for pirate security) and sailed along the African coastline. The family have also spent large amounts of time in and around Asia, relaxing with the children on board and making the most of the family-friendly features.
Maintained in great condition throughout the years by all of her owners, Zeepaard’s classical interior design has also stood the test of time and still blends very well with the exterior. Accommodating 10 guests in five spacious cabins (and a crew of seven), and a large elevated sun deck, the yacht offers privacy and protection at all times to those on board. Zeepaard – meaning seahorse in Dutch, and she truly lives up to her name.
