Alliaura Marine, a Leader in the luxury cruising catamaran market, unveiled the queen of the fleet to myself and other brokers from The Catamaran Group, at their facility in Les Sables D’Olonne, France on a recent trip over there.
The new Privilege 745 is a stunning masterpiece of technology and high quality craftsmanship seldom seen in the catamaran world. This new flagship from Alliaura is available in the following layout options:
Version 1 - 5 cabins
Version 2 - 4 cabins
Version 3 - 4 cabins
Marc Lombard demonstrates his abilities with volume once again, expanding exterior space with a bridge deck from where all the owner's sailing will take place - leaving a vast and uncluttered cockpit below for entertaining.
The 4 cabin owners version features a large forward centerline master cabin (which includes separate sinks, a Jacuzzi bath, shower and head) and accommodation for 3 crew. The galley is an area that any world class chef would be happy to have.
No cost has been spared for the equipment and features of the boat, from the hydraulic crane, extending boarding gangway, power winches and foresail furling systems, to touch screen navigation and vessel monitoring systems, this boat has it all. Even a 'back down' camera plays to either of the navigation displays on bridge or at navigation center.
The flybridge is a central command and control center for many of the sail handling systems, as well as engines and bow thrusters. A large entertaining area with seating, table and sunbathing area complements the practicality of the design and allows guests to have a stunning view of the surrounding ocean. Down below the circular stainless steel staircase, the huge cockpit allows guests to dine in pure comfort.
Wide decks and room aplenty will allow guests to feel that they are all alone while choosing an area of relaxation.
This is an exciting progression for catamarans as a whole and the oasis of talent at the Alliaura yard is expected to move the bar once more. It is anticipated that, like the Privilege 585, the 745 will be hugely popular.
