A 2015 World Superyacht Awards finalist, this tri-deck beauty was originally built in 2014 and has a cruising speed range of 12-20 knots, making for an incredibly-smooth cruising experience to suit your needs. Characterised by generous living spaces both inside and out, her impressive volume is only accentuated by floor-to-ceiling windows, skylights and drop-down side balconies that allow for an abundance of natural light.
Thumper can happily accommodate up to 12 guests in a vast full-beam master suite on the main deck, as well as four generous en suite guest cabins on the lower deck.
Working on rotation with Captain Jason Haxby, Captain James Harbord has been with Thumper since inception. With more than 20 years’ experience in the industry, he’s extremely well adept at ensuring each and every charter runs to precision and, alongside his friendly crew, meets each and every guest demand.
How would he describe Thumper? As a yacht which prides itself on “attention to detail on every level, offering clients great adaptability in terms of cruising, comfort and speed paralleled with exceptional service by its crew.”
With an interior best described as stylish Hamptons beach house meets luxury Ibiza beach club, a charter experience aboard Thumper is more than just easy on the eye. Her custom interior was conceived by one of London’s top interior design houses, HPM Developments, and welcomes guests with a clean aesthetic of bright decorative materials of leather, white-washed timbers, metals and semi-precious stones. Unique artworks commissioned by “Based Upon”, a team of artists and designers who create highly acclaimed, bespoke handmade sculptural pieces, also feature throughout.
Thumper offers an impressive amount of outdoor space over her three decks, offering chic sunbathing spots, informal seating areas and on-deck dining, with a secluded spot for breakfast on her Portuguese bridge. Perfectly set-up to allow guests to enjoy the best of superyacht living, sunbeds flank her upper level, with comfortable crash pads positioned throughout.
For those looking to get out on the water, Thumper comes fully-equipped with an extensive collection of water toys, and her outstanding crew of nine are more than willing to escort guests to explore remote spots along the coastline for a completely bespoke experience.
At the hands of Chef Ryan Plester, a culinary experience aboard Thumper is always an exquisite treat. With over 22 years in the industry and numerous highly-regarded qualifications to his name, he is passionate about quality and always tries to ensure ingredients are locally sourced, opting for organic produce wherever possible.
Whether it’s a full-on five-star banquet, al fresco lunches or a casual buffet lunch to enjoy at your leisure, Chef Ryan can deliver on all occasions. Describing his culinary style as “a mixture of classic and modern cuisine”, he has worked in both high-end Michelin-starred restaurants and headed up the galley on board some of the world’s most luxurious superyachts. Armed with years of experience in top venues at sea and ashore, he prides himself on his ability to master any type of cuisine leaving guests wanting more.
Chef Ryan is always keen to speak to guests ahead of each charter so he can understand their preferences and create bespoke menus that both adults and children will enjoy, ensuring every meal is a memorable experience for all on board.
