KARIMA is the first expedition yacht designed and built as new, and not a conversion. For sale with Fraser, the 49m (161') Amels was launched in 1993 and refit in 2014.

Custom designed for global cruising with a large tender capacity, and all-weather, purposeful design. Featuring diesel-electric propulsion and a large helicopter deck with a below-deck hangar and fueling capabilities.

This steel and aluminium superstructure sports naval architecture by Amels and exterior lines by Terence Disdale Designs.

The classic and elegant nautical interior make her a fine example of what sophisticated adventure yachting can be.

Kindly note: this yacht is not available for sale to US residents in US waters.
  • KARIMA has accommodations for 12 including a full Owner’s deck with his and her bathrooms.
  • A full gym is located on the Owner's deck aft. 
  • The 14 x 9 metre (46’x 29’) helicopter deck is probably one of the safest and most practical in the whole yachting industry.
  • The upper deck of KARIMA is well arranged with a very private forward Sun Deck, complete with an ample sunbathing platform that covers storage lockers.
