Privilège works with some of the foremost yacht designers in the building of each of its luxury catamarans. These are experts in the fields of naval architecture and interior design – revered by sailors and boatbuilders alike. And like all good working relationships, they have been forged over time. Between Franck Darnet and Marc Lombard, we have a combined 50 years of close collaboration. It enables both men to really understand our brand and challenge us to go further each time.
Marc’s first professional energies were spent in designing a monohull, and this has become a speciality. His hulls are slim and hydrodynamic below the waterline, providing plenty of living volume above it. Franck, meanwhile, is a veteran sailor and designer of superyacht interiors. Of course, if you’d like a little expert advice we can arrange for designer Franck Darnet to help you craft your unique Privilège.
We are constantly questioning our designs and seeking to improve them
Marc Lombard has been the chief designer for Privilège since 1985. In that time, he has perfected the balance between performance, safety and comfort. Historically focused on racing, Marc Lombard was the very first naval architect to employ hydrodynamic specialists within his growing team. In his four-decade-long career, Marc has created over 250 different designs – from racing yachts and leisure cruisers to monohulls, catamarans and trimarans, it appears there’s no limit to his creativity.
The spaces and volumes had to feel as magisterial as the boat herself
Superyacht interior designer
Superyacht interior designer Franck Darnet is undoubtedly one of the world’s most renowned interior designers for custom yachts and luxury hotels. He designs bright and attractive interiors to live in, which provide pleasure and a sense of space. Franck’s refined designs are found on every Privilège making them the most elegant multihulls today. Franck grew up in a sailing family which included a designer, and so was always destined to follow a similar path. His life has always been animated by two passions: design and the sea.
