Sailing yacht Cartouche the Blue Coast 95’ catamaran was designed by the renowned naval architectural office of Coste Design & Partners and heralds a new generation of high tech opulent sailing yachts. With a length of 28,8m and a beam over the 12m the Blue Coast 95′ is one of the most elegant luxury catamarans ever built. Along with timeless elegance, the Blue Coast 95’ Cat offers premium performance and superior comfort combining modern styling with elegant aerodynamic lines.
The BC95 superyacht Cartouche is built for ease of handling and fast cruising with a minimal need for crew and to date the biggest luxury sail catamaran to be equipped with a fully automatic furling boom allowing safe and easy sail reduction. Her sporty appeal and comfort at sea provide an idyllic means of enjoying the thrills of luxury sailing with all the high-end amenities of an exceptional cruising vessel.
The deck sloop rigged Blue Coast 95’ catamaran Cartouche was designed to exceed modern super yacht standards, equipped with all the amenities of a motor yacht with the performance of a fast sailing vessel. Her high cruising speeds under power as well as using her efficient sail plan allow long-range cruising in every condition.
The well known catamaran’s stability is such that rolling and heeling are reduced to the minimum at anchoring and while sailing in rough conditions, thanks to her long narrow hulls. The hulls’ shallow draft enables anchoring and cruising close to shore, an option not possible on many monohull sailing yachts.
The Blue Coast 95’ has a beam of 12m, a rotating carbon wing mast measuring 33m in height, a carbon furling boom and an overall weight of 60 tons. This is an outstanding yacht in every respect and one of the most refined and beautifully appointed sailing vessels in its class.
The concept of the Blue Coast 95’ cat Cartouche is the result of highly advanced naval architectural studies including high tech computer simulations. Extensive research using high end Computational Flow Dynamic studies has developed hull lines capable of remarkable performances and sea worthiness.
Cartouches’ structural calculations were executed by Finite Element Analysis to optimize weight/resistance while maintaining optimum integral and at-sea safety.
The following powerful design and testing tools enabled Coste Design to conceive of the vessel’s foundations while taking into account the owner’s wishes as to the yacht’s layout:
•Computational Flow Dynamic
•Finite Element Analysis and structure calculation
•Deck and sail plans
The Blue Coast 95’ yacht Cartouche is built of high tech composite materials for their light weight, strength and extreme durability. The construction process combines the infusion of epoxy resin / Glass fibre/Carbon fibre and PU foam core. The project is then subdivided into smaller individual modules, including two full beam carbon fibre composite bulkheads bonded into a single symmetrical arrangement. All structural elements (bulkheads, frames, roof and decks) are carefully integrated with the interior.
During construction, the vessel’s weight was continuously monitored and compared with studied estimates. Each separate structural component must be approved by laboratory testing.
The yacht is built in a weather protected and temperature controlled construction hall, in accordance with Bureau Veritas (BV). Weight, quality of finish, solidity and ease of maintenance are all determining factors in the choice of materials and construction methods. The exterior composite is finished with an Awlgrip system.
Sailing yacht Cartouche, the Blue Coast 95’s exterior lines are the result of hydro & aerodynamic research, speed performance, comfort, ergonomics, interior layout, safety and the owner’s particular aesthetic wishes.
The exterior aft salon offers shaded lounging with unobstructed panoramic views and is separated from the large interior salon by a wide sliding door. The aft stairs pertaining to each hull lead to Lazarette compartments and down to the transom where one can store personal watercrafts, scuba diving equipment and other water sport toys. On each hull a swim ladder grants direct access to the water.
From the aft one reaches the fly bridge via a comfortable stairway to starboard. The helm station is amidships and the rigging equipment is located to port and starboard for ultimate control and ease of handling. A second, vast sunbathing area is located on either side of a Jacuzzi and amidships there is a dining area where guests can enjoy remarkable views with sofa and bar. A dumbwaiter has been installed to bring food directly up from the galley.
Yacht Cartouche is also equipped with a hydraulic swim platform that drops 60cm below water level to facilitate the launching of the main tender. This platform can also be used as a sunbathing deck and is the perfect support to water sports.
The anchoring and running rigging equipment has been incorporated seamlessly into the deck’s layout.
The Blue Coast 95’s interior accommodations and décor meet the latest standards in comfort and luxury using lightweight materials and state of the art craftsmanship. The yacht is equipped with a high-end entertainment system that includes flat screen TV, audio and video on demand, high speed internet access, and the like.
Interior accommodation includes:
Owner cabin on main deck+ ensuite bathroom
3 guest cabins + bathroom and shower
1 crew cabin + bathroom and shower
Different layouts can be conceived to make the boat usable for either commercial or private yacht use. Blue Coast Yachts is the leader in mega yacht catamaran and continuously sets new standards in sailing performances and comfort.

The Blue Coast 95’ is built to be manned by a minimum crew. All the sails and mooring commands are operated from the helm station.
All the sails are made in 3DL by North Sails. The sail plan shows a full battened 235m² fat head main sail with carbon furling boom, a 115m² hydraulic furling self-tacking jib and a 280-m² Gennaker which provides additional power in light wind conditions.
The Blue Coast 95’ is equipped with a very efficient high modulus carbon wing mast build by
Petitjean Composites. The Kevlar standing rigging promotes simplicity, light weight, low drag and high efficiency. Mast and boom are studied using 3D technology and finite elements analysis.
With the Blue Coast 95’, Blue Coast Yachts is reinforcing its advance regarding its competitors, the BC 95’ is to date the biggest luxury sailing catamaran to be equipped with a styled hydraulic furling boom operated from the helm station and with an automatic bagging system to protect the sails. This allows a very safe and easy sail reduction and open new perspectives in the manoeuvring of giant sailing catamarans.
