Sailing yacht Cherokee
In August 2008 Offshore Yacht charter has purchased a very nice sailing yacht and named her Cherokee. The Cherokee was built in 2000 and designed by J & J Design. In 2009 the ship was refitted radically for sailing at sea with passengers and it now has a cutter rig and a generator room. Cherokee, now a fast and convenient “One Off” 50, is 16 meters long and has a beautiful teak deck with a spacious cockpit. The Cherokee is very practical and therefore easy to sail. She can take a total of eight passengers plus two crew members (skipper and a bosun).On the longer voyages there will also be an extra mate.
The interior of s.y. Cherokee
The interior is stylish and practical paneled with mahogany. The saloon has a cozy seating area and the galley has been equipped with a refrigerator, freezer, electric heating plate and a combination of microwave and oven. In each cabin are lockers for luggage and hatches which can be opened. All cabins have a natural ventilation system and the toilets have a mechanical ventilation system. The boiler has been extended to 90 liters and the cooling water of the generator runs through it, so there is also plenty of hot water to shower on the anchorages.
The cockpit has a lot of space with comfortable couches and a table. If it might cool down, or start raining in the evening, we can put up a cockpit tent in no time, so that you can still sit outside (sheltered).

Technical details of the yacht Cherokee
The Cherokee is a solidly built ship and equipped with all necessary safety and navigation equipment to be able to sail at sea. During the refit, a lot of effort has been spent on the subdivision and fire safety. The skipper will give an explanation about the ship and the safety procedures at the start of each sailing trip.
To ensure fire safety on board smoking is not allowed inside the ship. For your own safety and that of other persons on board, drinking alcohol is also not allowed while sailing.

Fire safety and watertight subdivision

– The entrance of the yacht can simply be closed off with two watertight doors.
– The Forepeak is a watertight compartment, the collision bulkhead can be locked inside the ship by a watertight door.
