Privilège Key Features
“The forward pod” : the Privilege Signature
The distinctive style that is the hallmark of Privilege catamarans’ aesthetics and construction has existed since 1985 :
- The extra volume in the pod allows generous space in the forward cabins, especially for the Owner’s Suite when it covers entire beam of the boat;
- A fixed baby stay ready for use in order to set a storm sail or staysail should bad weather set in;
- Excellent comfort is afforded in rough weather when the pod leans on the wave in order to avoid deep immersion of the bows.
- From a structural perspective, the forward beam and seagull striker is supported on three points which reinforces the entire structure at sea.
The quality of Privilege catamarans’ interiors does not allow for any compromise. The interior furnishings and fixtures (furniture, upholstery, electrical, etc) utilise only the finest products and materials available to deliver optimal client satisfaction. Technical integration (set-up of equipments, phonic and thermic isolation, wires and supply set up, etc) and careful attention to ergonomics and functionality further optimise quality of life on board. And Privilege catamarans can be customised to cater for every client’s individual needs, whether it is an extra book shelf, even larger bed, specific oven or a unique layout.
Deck fittings / Rigging / Sails:
Privilege has worked closely with the design office of Marc Lombard and a team of highly specialised and loyal suppliers for more than 20 years to develop the most ergonomic and user-friendly deck layouts that enhance the cruising experience without compromising safety, reliability and performance.
MARECHAL, exclusive supplier of all Privilege masts, has a stellar reputation and has played an integral role in the development of each Privilege catamaran. The white lacquered aluminium profiles are optimised for the best strength/weight ratio, the weldings are flush, and the fittings and additions carefully calculated. They also supply the fore-beam, which is very important for the main strength of the whole hull/pod/deck configuration.
INCIDENCES sails, renowned as the preferred supplier for most racing yachts, uses the finest fabrics, and pays utmost care to the stitching and cutting, reinforcements to clews, tack and head corners, and threadlines.
As subcontractors, both MARECHAL and INCIDENCES are rigorously monitored by Privilege to ensure that the rigging, sails and fittings are exclusively unique to the industry and manufactured to the very highest specifications.
