The all-new super catamaran Vantage 86 has been proudly unveiled by the UK company, Vantage Catamarans Ltd. Beautifully penned by Christophe Chedal-Anglay, luxury sailing yacht Vantage 86 is a unique adventure performance catamaran, mixing up racing pedigree with the comfort and stability of a multihull. She will be built by Green Marine on the south coast of England, scheduled for launch in 2017.
Phil Scott, Managing Director of Vantage Catamarans, commented: “British born and bred, Vantage 86 will enable exploration of the furthest reaches of the ocean with speed, safety and luxury. It is our goal to create the most technologically advanced adventure catamaran on the market; she will be fast, stable and built for action. We live our lives at a break-neck pace, where time is a luxury commodity, so traditional cruising is no longer an option for many who want to make the most out of every moment on the water. Vantage 86 has been designed to offer the speed and agility to take the routes less charted, provide space to pack in those essentials from a rack of surfboards to motorbikes, and allow 400 mile days in style.”
Successfully blurring the line between bluewater cruising and a performance race boat, luxury yacht Vantage 86 will provide minimal compromise between race numbers and cruising comfort. She will easily sleep up to eight guests and a crew of 3 members, in comfortable and generous cabins. These will be styled and furnished by Peter Hall & Son, the acclaimed British interior design and furniture studio.
Bespoke yacht designer, Nigel Irens, said: “Vantage 86 has been a truly collaborative project from the initial concept right through the design process. After a year of interactive work between the design team, Green Marine and owner’s representative Synergy Yachting we have now reached the point where Green Marine can plan every detail of the build process. Although most yacht builders would advocate such an approach it is rarely achieved in practice and should result in a higher quality build – as well as a significant improvement in building efficiency and the weight of the finished yacht. “
