[KooOne of Camper & Nicholsons' newest signings, the 42.9m (140'7) sloop Koo is available for charters in the Caribbean this winter]spotlight on20Isea&iIWINTER 2012When she was launched in 2002, Koo stole headlines in theyachting press thanks to her pleasing exterior lines, impressivespeed and interior space. She was, and many would argue stillis, one of the most innovative examples of large yacht designand Dutch boat-building expertise. Her specification was so spot on that whenDubois Naval Architects and Vitters Shipyard went on to collaborate on other43m yachts, they barely altered a thing. This luxurious, fast cruising sloop has recently joined the Camper &Nicholsons charter fleet and can welcome up to eight guests in four en suitestaterooms, and 12 guests for day cruising. Her expert crew of six are headedby captain Brendon Crawford, who gained much of his nautical experiencewith the New Zealand Navy, for which he was a navigation specialist.Reaching speeds of up to 15 knots, Koo (who, in her nine years, has also sailedunder the names Vent D'est, Red Dragon and African Queen) offers fantasticcruising potential and is well equipped for comfort and leisure. Flat-screentelevisions feature in all the cabins, along with two 42" Plasma screens and Bosesound systems in the guest areas. Her garages are literally bursting with toys,so when guests are not whipping across tropically warm waters under sail theycan anchor up and dive in to enjoy the ocean with the SeaBob, Laser sailingdinghy, windsurfer, diving and snorkelling gear, kayaks, donuts, water-skis,wakeboard and radio-controlled yachts. Alternatively, guests can stretch out onthe yacht's teak decks and watch the world drift by. Koo is available for winter charters in the Caribbean, based out of Antigua,fromĀ 12 to 26 December 2011, and from 7 January until 19 March 2012.nFor more information, contact your Camper & Nicholsons charter broker, see page 6SPECIFICATIONSLENGTH . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .42.9m (140'7)BEAM . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .8.78m (28'8)DRAFT . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .4.1m (13'4)BUILD . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Vitters Shipyard BVNAVAL ARCHITECTURE . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Dubois Naval ArchitectsINTERIOR DESIGN . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Redman Whiteley DixonYEAR/REFIT . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .2002/2006GUESTS . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .8CREW . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .6PRICES FROM . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .US$100,000 per week
