580 circumnavigator

A hard act to

The new Privilege 580 has a hard act to follow. Its predecessor, the 585, continues to be a much sought-after blue water yacht famous for its heavy weather sailing ability and live aboard capacity.

The new 580 is designed and built to improve on that record.

The Circumnavigator version of the 580 was designed with the requirements of the live aboard, long-distance sailor in mind. 

See below for key features aboard the 580 Circumnavigator catamaran.

P 580 Circumnavigator Foredeck
The foredeck has a huge storage locker with great access through large deck hatches.


The main difference between the 580 Circumnavigator and the 580 Signature is the absence of the forward lounge. Instead of the lounge, the foredeck converts to an easily accessible storage area. The storage locker is accessed through large deck hatches. Of course, upholstered cushions will transform the foredeck to a very comfortable lounge area when desired. 

shaft drive propulsion

A serious offshore passagemaker should not be burdened with saildrives. A robust shaft drive installation ensures that engine and transmission components are accessible while the boat in the water. 

Intelligent line management

Short-handed sailing is the norm for a liveaboard cruiser. This is why the 580 Circumnavigator is designed with an intelligent line management system that allows you to trim and adjust sails without ever leaving the helm. Single line reefing, main halyard, main sheet and genoa sheets are led to two electric winches right at the helm. The genoa is also easily controlled by the standard electric furling system. 

Forward facing navigation

The forward facing navigation position is an ideal location to plot your next course. The spacious work area gives you plenty of room to plan your passages and stay in touch with the cruising community.
