About this Dubois Sensation

Sailing yacht "Philkade" is a 37.34m (122.5 feet) luxury sailing yacht. She was launched in 1986 by Sensation Yachts in New Zealand refit in 1995/2009 and just completed another refit in 2016. Dubois Naval Architects were the naval architects, and to no surprise the yacht is a proven performer under sail, and the interior layout makes excellent use of space in a contemporary way, offering accommodation for six guests and six crew. 

The raised deck saloon has become a Dubois trademark. The stern with the symmetrical steps has won many acclaims and is great for entertainment at anchor. The interior design emanated from the drawing board of Bob Milhous and Edward Meayers. High grade aluminum was utilized to fabricate the superyacht hull.

The draught in metres is 5.85 (19.2 ft) and the widest beam in in metres is 7.62 (25 feet). The material above her decks utilized is mostly aluminum and GRP. "Philkade" can steam with a economical cruising speed of 12 knots giving a range of around 2750 miles. Her full range is enabled with her 29500–litre tank capacity.

This is a rare opportunity to own one of the finest sailing yachts in the world with twin engines allowing another level of confidence while at sea at a fraction of the cost.
