A second ExclusivE 76 is being built at the Kingcat Shipyard in France. While the first unit was built for Sparkling Charter, this new unit has been ordered by a European client for his own use. She features one owner suite in the port hull and two guests suites in the starboard hull. It was very important for the owner to offer real crew quarters. The two crew cabins have an independant access from the salon or through decks hatches,with their own heads and shower. I think the interior layout is quite a sucess for this size of catamaran.
Another very interesting thing about the Exclusive 76 is that it was designed from scratch (including the moulds) to accomodate many different kinds of layout, thus offering many choices without important modifications in the building process.
This Gilles Ollier design will be fitted with a carbon mast, boom, spar and bowsprit, as well as built-in swing keels, she should be quite fast under sail. This ExclusivE 76 number 2 should be launched end 2008.
Georges Benarroch, Exclusive Marine CEO “.. our client was attracted by the technical specifications, the flowing lines and the optimum use of capacity on the Exclusive 76”.
