This very luxurious sailing catamaran S 6 from Privilege is now available for sale in “better than new condition”. It is the 4 cabins owner version. She was launched in 2018 and built in 2017.
Naval Architect M Lombard was commissioned to design the Privilege Series 6 with volume and comfort at sea. He focused on increasing volume in the hull ends to reduce pitching and he raised the bridge deck to minimize pounding in head seas.
The result is a cat that hobby-horses less and stays quiet even in sloppy conditions.
The new performance hulls have sharper bows that lower resistance to slice through chop efficiently and have a greater load capacity to carry all the necessary amenities for long-distance cruising. Catamarans are very sensitive to weight and although the Series 6 is anything but light, Privilege took numerous steps in the construction process to lighten the load.
The hulls, deck, cabin top, and flybridge are resin-infused and foam-cored and the interior furniture and bulkheads are made with cored laminates.
A carbon fiber mast and boom are standard to minimize weight aloft. Less weight in the basics means the Series 6 enjoys better performance and can carry more cruising equipment like larger engines and tanks, a Genset and A/C units, and extensive furniture to enhance comfort.
The master stateroom, which is to port and forward, takes up a disproportionate amount of room–as it should. The entrance is via a large and very functional office with a desk outboard. The head is in the bow, this time, with a good-sized shower stall.
