An interview with...

With travel restrictions in place, we’ve discovered Zoom! We’ll try not to overdue it, but here are a few interviews to bring insights about Privilege Catamarans and the people who build and sail them. 

three generations sailing around the world

The Abbott family is on their 2nd circumnavigation aboard their Privilege sailing catamaran s/v Exit Only. They started their first one in 1995 and didn’t complete it until 2006. Today they are aboard the original boat, but this time they’ve got 3 generations on board. We speak to them while they are cruising in the Sea of Cortez in Mexico.

Privilege 510: making a great boat better

How do you make a great boat even better? With improvements like available shaft drive propulsion, better weather protection, more storage, and passive ventilation. We highlight some of these improvements aboard the Privilege 510 sailing catamaran that make it an even better blue water, liveaboard sailing catamaran.

FRANCK DARNET: DESIGNING THE 580 Catamaran

We speak to Franck Darnet, founder of Darnet Design, about his work on the new Privilege 580 Catamaran. Coming from a super yacht design background, as well as a sailing pedigree with a circumnavigation under his belt, Darnet’s design is as much about material selection and layout as it is about a deep understanding of a sailor’s requirements. 

Willo: Captain of s/v Namaste, A PRIVILEGE 740

We speak to Willo, the private yacht captain of a Privilege 7 Series sailing catamaran who shares some of his background and experiences sailing aboard s/v Namaste – a luxury yacht with a focus on adventure and eco tourism that’s equipped with full diving gear and specialty sonar to find unchartered shipwrecks.
