Zulu: Inside the specialist explorer yacht made for adventure

A specialist explorer vessel, this is a yacht that not only looks the part — but is capable of true global adventure

As a general rule, there are two types of yachtsmen. There are those who enjoy relaxing in cruising hotspots, taking out toys and tenders, and sipping at freshly-mixed margaritas under the Mediterranean sun. And there is another, more rugged breed of seafarer — who instead has his heart set on adventure.

"There is another, more rugged breed of seafarer — who instead has his heart set on adventure..."

Zulu, a distinctively-styled explorer yacht offered for sale through Edmiston, is a vessel very much for the latter. With a robust steel displacement hull, extraordinary deck space and a cruising range of over 5,000 nautical miles, she is the perfect yacht for upping anchor — and sticks — and setting out for the four corners of the world.

In fact, everything about Zulu — from her impressive satellite communications and navigation suite to the fantastic views from gallery windows — seems custom built for adventuring. And, following recent refit works, Zulu is now offering this exceptional capability in excellent order.

But it’s not all utilitarian. Inside, a recent interior redesign from top Italian designer Pastrovich has created a relaxed and inviting feel that conveys a real nautical charm. Superb quality fittings abound, and the owner’s suite enjoys unrivalled views — just one of 5 versatile cabins on board.

And out on deck, Zulu has some of the best outside entertaining areas of any yacht of her size, including a sun deck with a Jacuzzi and lounging area, and a beautifully-bohemian upper deck dining terrace. The split-level main deck leads to a swimming platform, complete with a hydraulic centre section that extends out over the sea.

It’s a distinctive yacht, incredibly strong and striking in its stripped back exterior design. But, with the decadence and unique decor inside, this is a yacht as surprising and diverse as the locations to which it is destined to take you.
