Hyperion races at the St Barths Bucket
This March, some lucky charter guests will be on board Hyperion during the famous sailing regatta. Currently for sale, she is offering you the chance to be onboard next year.
The sailing yacht HYPERION, built by arguably the best sailing yacht shipyard in the world, Royal Huisman, will be back at the St Barths Bucket this year from 17-20 March, demonstrating what she does best.
The St Barths Bucket is one of the sailing world’s premier events – a weekend of camaraderie and non-commercial racing, where like-minded superyacht owners gather to compete and sail for the sheer fun of it.
This year, HYPERION’s professional crew will be joined on board not by their Owner, but by charter guests who have booked this rare opportunity to board the race boat, which is only available for charter once a year during the regatta.
With a hull designed by Germán Frers and interiors by Pieter Beeldsnijder, when she was built in 1998, HYPERION had the tallest ever single rig of any yacht, and her detailed pedigree engineering includes other innovative features, including a carbon dagger board for versatility of cruising.
Far more than just a racing yacht, her onboard accommodation includes a comfortable split-level salon, and three luxurious cabins, sleeping six, which include a stunning master cabin with an office area, relaxation area and a marble en suite, plus a double cabin and a twin.
Once on board, it’s completely up to guests to decide on whether they want to get involved with the racing or just sit back and enjoy the spectacle in one of the most idyllic sailing grounds in the world.
Edmiston broker, Alex Busher, says: “It’s a great chance to experience first-hand the tactics of the racing, the food and rush of seeing the largest most spectacular sailing yachts in the world all together racing.”
