Bring offers, seller is building a new day charter cat.
This 82' Maxi catamaran was specifically designed and constructed for day charter. She is certified by VERITAS for 170 passengers (including max. 6 crew). Her sheer size, payload capacity and safety equipment put her in a class of her own among day charter cats.
Her hulls are composite construction (fiberglass and epoxy resin over foam core) and her superstructure is aluminum. She was built to very strict VERITAS standards at the H2X shipyard in La Ciotat, France is perhaps the largest purpose-built day charter cat in the world. Epoxy construction and longitudinal stringers that run the full length of the hull make for an especially stiff and robust construction. Her very high bridge-deck clearance gives her blue-water capability.
She features a huge covered space to accommodate a large dance floor, seated dining space for 120 pax, a large outdoor galley/bar with sink, refrigeration, ice maker and high-capacity grill. She has a restaurant-grade kitchen in the port hull including 1.5 cubic meter cold storage capacity, 360 plate/hour dishwasher and crew quarters for six with a complete navigation station. Guest bathrooms are located aft in each hull accessed by stairways. The wheelhouse is forward and protected by a full glass enclosure.
She is powered by twin VOLVO 180 HP turbos located in very large engine rooms. The engines drive shafts with MAXPROP three-blade folding propellers of 30 inch diameter that will drive the boat at 10 knots. Two 17KVAKOHLER generators (one in each engine room) provide ample power to the large energy requirements which include a "nightclub"level audio-entertainment system.
After her launch in France in 2011, she has operated in the South of France where she very successfully accommodates 14,000 pax in the spring/summer/fall. She was briefly moved to Saint Martin for the 2015 winter season and returned to France. So she is ocean capable.
If you are a professional charter operator with high capacity needs, this cat is the state-of-the-art solution.
