New in 2005, the Privilège 395 is an elegant catamaran from Alliaura Marine, designed for comfort, safety and long-haul cruising, all rolled into just a 12 meter hull.
Architect Marc Lombard designed the successor to the popular Privilège 37 with a view to offering owners the kind of comfort at sea usually only available in larger boats. On those versions equipped with a stern platform, the manufacturers have included a generator and desalinator, and the extension also allows better stability in rough seas.
The shipyard’s priority is to offer a pleasant cruising experience. To achieve this, the coachroof is completely unencumbered, with all halyards running to the mast foot, and the wo 28 hp Volvo engines facilitate manoeuvres.
But the greatest innovations are to be found below deck. The luxurious master cabin in the false central hull extends into the port side hull and occupies one quarter of the total living space. There is a large bathroom to the forward starboard side. The nacelle contains the navigation station, a long galley to starboard, and a saloon with plenty of sunlight. The Privilège 395 also has two attractive rear cabins, making it surprisingly comfortable and spacious.
Thanks to its small draught, this catamaran of just 11.95 metres has what it takes for a great sailing experience, especially along the Atlantic coast or in the Caribbean. With its excellent autonomy and fine interior layout, it is the ideal solution for fans of comfortable cruising along the coast or at sea.
Just as its new platforms give a longer glide downwind, the Privilège 395 should be surfing on the same wave of success as its predecessor.
