SHEMARA was originally built by Thornycroft & Company in 1938 as one of the largest private yachts in the world and went on to serve as an A/S vessel during World War II. For three years she underwent an extensive, one million man-hour rebuild project that saw her returned to her former glory and transformed into a superyacht at the highest levels of design and luxury. She was re-launched earlier this year and has now been made available just in time for the Caribbean yacht charter winter season.
The refit took place at Shemara Refit LLP which was set up by her Owner who then recruited naval architects from BAE along with a number of subcontractors and Studioilse for the interior design to collaborate on the project. The results are spectacular and have seen SHEMARA reconfigured, refreshed, and largely rebuilt, retaining her classic charm while boasting an array of innovative new additions to include a Rolls-Royce diesel-electric drive train.

SHEMARA’s new interior has also been sympathetically designed to emphasise her original features. The living areas are spacious and elegant, encompassing stylish furnishings and high quality fittings, finished with neutral décor, intelligent lighting solutions and leather and wood materials and a grand central staircase to link all decks. She sleeps up to 12 guests in eight beautiful staterooms to include six double guest cabins and a larger VIP on the lower deck, and an owner’s suite forward on the upper deck.
Outdoors there are a great selection of versatile spaces, from the observation deck atop the wheelhouse, to a large sunbathing area aft on the bridge deck, an expansive aft deck with plunge pool on the upper deck and an alfresco dining area on the main deck aft.
SHEMARA is available for charter at weekly rates starting from €275,000 and €300,000 plus expenses over the winter, contact your preferred charter broker for more details. Alternatively take a look at the full range of classic yachts available for charter.
