"This is an absolute first," says Gilles Wagner, Managing Director of Privilège Marine, "It is the first time that Privilège has developed three new catamarans at the same time. Thanks to our strong partner Hanseyachts AG and positive feedback from all over the world, we have decided to to present our customers a new, modern Privilège line."
The new 18.65 meter long Privilège Signature 580 impresses with its striking design, which with its negative curves and the window front set back a little behind the "A-pillar" of the structure is very reminiscent of the modern Outremer designs and a panoramic view from the very generous designed salon. The hulls have large windows and offer a panoramic view of the sea from the double beds. The cabins are very comfortable and generously dimensioned. The owner's cabin in the foredeck to port even has its own private companionway from the foredeck cockpit.

Despite three meters less length, the Signature 510 still offers an overwhelming amount of living space and comfort. According to the shipyard, the owner's cabin is the largest in its class - a feature that Privilège has placed great importance on since the 1990s. Unlike the 580, which is a spacious luxury ship with numerous comfortable cabins for a larger crew, the 510 was designed for blue water cruises with medium occupancy, but also offers plenty of space and comfort for guests.

What is striking about both ships is that, contrary to today's trend, Privilège has dispensed with excessively high flybridges. The control panel is located on the main bulkhead of both kats with an unobstructed view of the cabin superstructure. Although the 580 has a seating area on the fixed sun roof above the cockpit, the appearance was still much flatter and more pleasing than that of other competitors' ships or its own Série 6 from the Privilège series. While the 580 has a more sporty and modern design, the 510, on the other hand, places particular emphasis on functionality and proven solutions. Both ships look optimally designed for their purpose.

"Of course we will continue to manufacture our successful sailing catamarans Série 6 and Série 7", says Gilles Wagner. "This means that Privilège will have a total of five luxury catamarans in its range that can be built individually for each customer." In the own configurator on the website, interested parties can put together their dream ship from numerous layout and color options.
As a third new development, Privilège is presenting the motor catamaran Euphorie 5 - a ship that fits perfectly into the charter market in the Caribbean or Bahamas, where there is significant growth in motor catamarans. With two 220 hp diesel engines, it can reach up to 21 knots and promises fast travel.

The yard specifies the standard prices for the new catamarans at 1,568,000 euros for the Signature 580 and 995,000 euros for the Signature 510. The motor catamaran Euphorie 5 should be available from 1,066,000 euros (all prices without VAT).
