Gallery: Shalimara on Alssund.
Shalimara... a large, prestigious, elegant and fast mahogany cruising yacht, unique in Scandinavia. Luxuriously equipped and meticulously maintained, she is driven by the powerful MTU diesel engines with a cruising speed of 18 knots and a maximum speed of 20 knots. Built in Italy in 1972 at the prestigious Cantieri Navali Lavagna shipyard, Shalimara appears with her original interior as a fine example of a Mediterranean cruiser from the classical period, La Dolce Vita.

The elegant teak panelled saloon with sofa and armchairs and a large dining table is also equipped with a flat screen, DVD and stereo. Furthermore, there are a bar fridge and icemaker. The glass sliding doors open out to the large aft deck, also equipped with a large mahogany dining table. Shalimara’s upper deck is a special experience in itself. An area for relaxing, sunbathing and with a wonderful view.

A cruise aboard Shalimara offers you the ultimate possibility of choosing harbour, enjoy a delicious lunch, or a dinner menu of your own choice and all in your own pace.

While you relax aboard, you can enjoy watching the world pass by, the scenery, small and large harbours, or you can choose to berth where shopping and sightseeing await you at the foot of your gangway.

Shalimara has a reputation second to none. Her experienced 3 men crew provide a first class service for all guests and an unforgettable experience.

Shalimara is moored in Sønderborg and ready to explore the nearby waters or where ever you may want to sail to.

For our guests a visit to the well equipped wheelhouse is an experience in itself. Our Chief Captain Peter Thias enjoys explaining the vessel and its interesting background plus demonstrating its sophisticated navigation instruments. For small guests he always has a special program, which may inspire them to a maritime education…
