Broker's Comments

Preliminary Details: awaiting confirmation by owner.
See "more photos" to view 45 internal and external photos of this vessel. "Drumbeat" was originally built for Sir Max Aitken by Clare Lallow in Cowes in 1957 so that he could enter the Admirals Cup. In her day she was a radical racing yacht that had plenty of success for her owners and crew. She has had a number of changes over the years, and with some re-design by Ed Dubois as well as a number of different Keel types up to her present bulb keel. She certainly glistens from bow to stern and is a credit to her owners hard work. If you love beautiful things and love lavishing care and attention on them then "Drumbeat" is the yacht to compliment your life style. Photographs, analysis and comments by Peter Delbridge of Boatshed Hamble.
