Which Color Is Best?   Motor Yacht Sherakhan Gets Makeover

If you owned a 228 foot luxury yacht charter vessel, would you paint it deep blue or polar white?


If you owned the massive motor yacht SHERAKHAN the answer is:  BOTH!


Originally built in 1965, the current owner bought the commercial vessel in 2005 and undertook a massive refit – basically gutting the entire ship from bow to stern and rebuilt her into a yacht charter vessel with accommodations for 26 guests (most yachts are limited to 12 or fewer). The full rebuild featured all new plumbing, electrical systems, air conditioning, and generators.


It also included a beautiful new paint job – a deep blue hull, with a white superstructure…

Fast forward to 2017, and the owner decided it was time for another refit. All new decks were installed, along with new soft fabrics throughout the guests areas and cabins, and a complete overhaul of all major equipment in the engine room.


As he did in 2005, the owner completely repainted the superyacht charter vessel – this time a clean, crisp white, with subtle grey accents..

The expedition style yacht is available in the Caribbean and will remain there through April.  In the summer, the yacht will relocate to the Mediterranean (e.g.  Monaco yacht charter or Grand Prix formula 1 races, etc.) for the summer of 2018.


So what do you think?   Do you think she looks better in blue or in white???
