Privilege launched the first Privilege Series 5 sailing catamaran into the water completely built after the takeover from Hanse Yachts.
The new Privilège Series 5 is the first sailing catamaran to be constructed in cooperation with both shipyards and confirms the future course of the Privilège brand. This new Privilège Series 5 is built to special customer requirements.
In addition to a performance upgrade for rigging and sails, the saloon has been redefined and drawn with an enlarged U-shaped lounge for even more space for owners and guests.
Privilège CEO Gilles Wagner says: “Following the takeover of Privilège by HanseYachts AG, we have combined the know-how of both shipyards and implemented it perfectly in this new catamaran. This Privilège is proof of the future development of our brand. We remain true to our traditional values and manufacture ocean-going catamarans to the highest quality standards and individual specifications of the owners. Above all, a Privilège embodies, next to quality and elegance, trust. Trust in my team and myself that all future Privilège owners can count on.”
The official debut of the Privilege Series 5 will be at the International Multihull Boat Show at La Grande Motte from April 18-22.
The Privilege Series 5, which has been rebranded the 510, is a luxury long distance cruiser that has made a name for itself thanks to its quality build and finish. These boats are a real step up from other cruising catamarans which is why we have included them in our Luxury Catamarans sections. There is an associated jump in price of course.
This boat has been well thought out with wide, easy-to-navigate side decks and plenty of hand holds. and you can tell very quickly that she was designed for long passages. The helm, engine controls, instruments and electric sheet winches are all around the raised helm station that should make her easy to sail with a short-handed crew. Visibility is good all around from the elevated helm position on the port side.
The hulls, deck, cabin top and bimini are foam-cored and resin-infused, and to reduce weight, furniture and bulkheads are made with foam-cored maple laminates. The quality of the joinery finish is a real step up from less expensive boats, as you would expect.
