We’ve recently returned from a trip to the Privilège boatyard where we helped owners Roger & Marta take delivery of their new Privilège Signature 510. Here’s a scrapbook of the first two weeks learning and sailing aboard Ona.
Take a closer look beneath the hatches and lockers to see access to systems and storage. One of the highlights is the engine room, which in our opinion, will tell you everything you need to know about a full-time liveaboard, offshore yacht.
One of the biggest questions sailors have when leaving for an offshore passage is what to bring with them. For John and Noelia, the answer way easy: bathing suits, lots of bathing suits, and boat shoes.
The Privilège Signature 580 is a completely new design. The only thing it shares with the former 585 is the designer, Marc Lombard. The result is the most versatile vessel to ever come out of the Privilège boatyard.
Every day aboard can be different, and so can the salon on the new Privilège 640. The Lounge, The Zen, Dining and Super Dining configurations are all part of the innovative and flexible interior layout aboard.
The Privilège Signature 510 hull #1 was recently launched and is now being commissioned. We’ll soon have pictures that will highlight the improvements to what was already a serious bluewater passagemaker.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by or joined us at the Miami International Boat Show. Thanks also to Keith, Renee, Anna, Jack, Finn & Kate from Sailing Zatara for taking the time to ‘meet & greet’ fans of their YouTube sailing channel.
The really good news about the new Privilège Signature 510 is that it isn’t a completely new design. The hull from the former 5 Series has changed little as it has proven to be a solid design for long distance, liveaboard cruising.
