Discussions with the people who design, build and sail the Privilege Catamarans.
We’ve often said that Privilege Catamarans doesn’t build boats for charter, in fact, there are many companies that specialize in catering to the charter fleet. But the fact that a Privilege isn’t built for charter is also what makes it an outstanding charter experience.
How much does a Privilege 580 cost? That depends. Find out how Privilege Catamarans America equipped and priced the new 580 for the optimal liveaboard catamaran. Because the 580 is the most flexible yacht in the Privilege fleet, we have created two price categories – the Signature and the Circumnavigator.
From a powered furling Genoa and Park Avenue boom to shaft drive engine installation, full cockpit enclosure and more, the Privilege 510 is fully equipped and ready for circumnavigation. Watch the video to see what else is included in the listed price.
We spoke with Lee Adams, captain of the first Privilege 640 to launch this spring, about why he advised his clients to choose Privilege Catamarans. Wanting a true luxury yacht for their own personal use with the option to host limited charters, Lee directed his clients to the Privilege 640.
A preview in anticipation of the launch of the first Privilege 640 Catamaran this spring. The adjustable salon layouts on the new 640 reflects the individual nature of the yacht owner. The versatile convertible layouts can suit all your living requirements – from casual lounging to formal dining and everything in between.
We are often asked why Privilege Catamarans cost more. Design, construction and the boatyard are all factors that determine the cost of any vessel. The initial design intentions determine the construction methodology and materials that the highly-skilled workforce at the Privilege Marine boatyard is tasked with building.
Announcing our first annual Spring Flotilla for owners of new Privilege Catamarans launched and commissioned before May of 2022 and May of 2023. This is the ultimate shakedown cruise for new Privilege Catamaran owners and another way for us to assist our North American clients who may have little or no experience sailing in Europe.
One of the defining features of Privilege Catamarans is the semi-custom nature of the build process. The engineers at Privilege Catamarans work closely with each new owner to design a yacht for their individual needs that goes far beyond color selections and layout configurations.
Good Ideas are Permanent. What makes a Privilege a Privilege? Long-term design elements that include both aesthetics and build, the boatyard, the focus on design for owners, and the location of the forward cabin are all defining trademarks of Privilege Catamarans.
The forward master cabin location aboard all Privilege Catamarans is a defining design feature. From a true walk-around berth and plenty of ventilation and light, to additional structural strength and proximity away from noise, this feature is unique to Privilege Catamarans.
We speak to Freddy Michaud, COO at Privilege Marine, about what it takes to build a semi-custom catamaran at the boatyard.
A review of the design features that make the Privilege 510 catamaran helm perfect for long-distance, all-weather sailing.
Watch a preview of the new Privilege 580 at the Privilege Marine boatyard before the launch of the first hull in the coming weeks.
Flat seas and sunny skies may be nice for a cruise, but when making a purchasing decision on a new boat, it’s essential to test the boat in all conditions.
At Privilege Marine, semi-custom means making substantial changes to your catamaran to best suit the way you use it.
How do you make a great boat even better? With improvements like available shaft drive propulsion, better weather protection, more storage, and passive ventilation.
How to launch a dinghy, how to sail downwind wing on wing in light winds and more. Watch videos from our Privilege Academy program to get a sense of what it’s like to liveaboard and sail the Privilege catamaran.
Take a comprehensive look under the floorboards aboard the new Privilege 510 catamaran. We open each cupboard and floorboard to show you access to systems and reveal the tremendous amount of storage on board.
Twice a year Privilege Catamarans America holds the Privilege Academy program, bringing new owners together to learn about the on-board systems and boat handling. Watch highlights from our four-day program.
Rob demonstrates how to launch and retrieve the dinghy aboard the Privilege 510 – Series 5 catamaran during the Winter 2019 session of Privilege Academy. It’s easy thanks to the remote controlled electric pendular davits.
One of the pleasures of a cruising yacht like the Privilege catamaran is downwind sailing. Rob demonstrates how you can easily deploy the Gennaker (or a code zero/screecher) and the Genoa for wing on wing light wind sailing.
