Zeepaard, Dutch for ‘Seahorse’ was built by France’s boutique shipyard JFA to RINA Class. Designed by yacht design studio Vripack, known for its holistic approach and modern philosophy through its extensive navel architecture and engineering experience, she was launched in 2003.

Built for ocean going expeditions, she undertook a three year ocean cruise around the world, travelling over 50,000 nautical miles with 39 countries visited. The circumnavigation was rewarded with a Neptune trophy as the joint winner of the Voyager’s Award at the 2014 World Superyacht Awards. In all, she has travelled over 72,000 nautical miles to 44 different countries.

Her build requirement to JFA was to provide a yacht built to the highest standards, meeting a vision of long range comfort combined with economic operating platforms. In order to meet the needs of such a transpacific range, the yacht has to be exceptionally seaworthy whilst offering space and luxury for comfortable cruising in order to explore the most remote places

JFA, based at Concarneau in Brittany, a region in France rich in maritime heritage, is a shipyard known for its boutique builds, where all their yachts built in both aluminium and composite using years of expertise in a family run environment, now explore the world. There was no compromise in the design by Vripack’s engineers and architects. They used the best quality modern technology on offer. Design concepts were rigorously tested and built in full aluminium. Zeepaard’s full displacement hull and well-engineered mechanical systems are designed to last.

MCA compliant and built to be the best sea going vessel available for world touring, Zeepaard boasts a high flaring bow and owner and guest cabins are at the central area of the yacht’s movement. Active stabilizers provide excellent heavy weather capability and sea kindly motion. A very dry yacht, the bridge windows never see spray on them and guests don’t hear the engine sounds or anchor windless thanks to high end soundproofing technology

Zeepaard’s accommodations host 10 guests in 5 cabins. The layout includes a full-beam master suite with king sized bed and four double cabins with queen sized beds, all with ensuite facilities. An additional feature for the master suite is a private sauna, spa and massage table connected directly to the ensuite bathroom facilities

Externally, a special feature presented is a crow’s nest on the mast offering spectacular views to the owner and guests whilst cruising or at anchor. Extensive deck spaces allow for leisure time and multiple tenders and watersports toys are on offer

Full time captain and crew immaculately maintain this yacht with the help of Camper and Nicholsons Asia acting as a full time yacht service management company to aid the captain and crew with budgeting, maintenance and extra services needed to run the yacht as professionally as required by the current owner

In 2011, a full refit was completed including a paint job.

The engine room sees twin 475hp Caterpillar engines offering a cruising speed of 13 knots and a transoceanic range of 7,000 nautical miles

To explore the hidden gems of the world, consider this expedition yacht to be the most fuel efficient and self-sufficient way to do so with the added value of comfort and space thanks to her modern design

Mediterranean to the Caribbean
The US East Coast
