Luxury sailing & power catamaran

Luxury catamarans with infinite configuration possibilities

Acquiring Privilège in 2019 has allowed HanseYachts AG to enter the fast-growing market for catamarans, the Group’s third business segment. Founded more than 30 years ago, Privilège offers luxury sailing catamarans and power catamarans measuring over 15 metres in length and is currently the sixth-biggest catamaran builder in the world.
The luxury catamarans under the Privilège brand stand for exceptional quality and robust seaworthiness, they are known as one of the world's best cruising catamaran. The diagonally cut saloon windows and revolutionary hull connection allow you to sail the oceans in absolute comfort. The power and sailing catamarans, which can measure more than 70 feet in length, offer up to 300 square metres of living space across multiple decks.

The catamarans are designed by Marc Lombard, who has been Privilège’s chief designer since 1985. He brings his more than 30 years of experience into the development of these models and is among the most celebrated catamaran designers in the world. Franck Darnet, one of the most highly renowned interior architects for luxury hotels and custom yachts, is responsible for the interior design.

Each Privilège catamaran is custom-built at the exclusive request of the customer. The close collaboration between designer, interior architect and customer opens up potential for extensive customisation and ensures that every single catamaran that ultimately leaves the shipyard is unique.

The power and sailing catamarans are built by hand in Les Sables d’Olonne on the Atlantic coast of France. The around 150-strong workforce at the Privilège shipyard possesses not only many years of experience, but also unique specialist know-how in the construction of two-hulled yachts. As a result, almost all of the more than 60 catamarans that have left the Privilège shipyard since the 1990s can still be found cruising the seas and oceans in every corner of the globe.

A plus in comfort and living space on the catamaran

The catamaran stands for its impressive space and easy handling. Two hulls, which are firmly connected by a deck, offer sufficient space for spacious cabins with their own bathroom. On the spacious bridge deck, a generous saloon, equipped with a stylish galley and a cosy lounge area, ensures uncompromising comfort. Some models also have a flybridge. This means that a catamaran offers significantly more privacy than a conventional boat.

Thanks to the particularly stable construction, a catamaran lies very calmly in the water and sails almost without heeling even in rough seas. The yachts' shallow draft makes it possible to approach even the loneliest bays or sail shallow reef passages. Two integrated engines enable even a small crew to steer with pinpoint accuracy in harbours and facilitate mooring at mooring buoys. The catamaran was designed for life on the world's oceans and is a guarantee for maximum safety and well-being!
