 Mar 6, 2018

On February 20th, 2018, Privilège launched the first sailing catamaran into the water (at Port Olona) completely built after the takeover from HanseYachts. The new Privilège Series 5 is the first sailing catamaran to be constructed in cooperation with both shipyards and confirms the future course of the Privilège brand. As usual for Privilège, this new Privilège Series 5 is built to special customer requirements. In addition to a performance upgrade for rigging and sails, the saloon has been redefined and drawn with an enlarged U-shaped lounge for even more space for owners and guests.

Privilège CEO Gilles Wagner says: “Following the takeover of Privilège by HanseYachts AG, we have combined the know-how of both shipyards and implemented it perfectly in this new catamaran. This Privilège is proof of the future development of our brand. We remain true to our traditional values and manufacture ocean-going catamarans to the highest quality standards and individual specifications of the owners. Above all, a Privilège embodies, next to quality and elegance, trust. Trust in my team and myself that all future Privilège owners can count on.”

Even in the event of an onboard power failure, a Ritchie Navigation SuperSport Helmsman SS-1002 magnetic compass still works.
