WORLD MEGA-CATAMARAN LISTING – LAUNCHED AND IN BUILT

Last year, I listed all the luxury catamarans over 70 feet that I knew of and that I could find on the web in order to write NAHEMA’s press kit. This was a special order from NAHEMA and it is available for journalists to read. (Just send me an email, it includes interesting bonuses about catamarans). This morning I asked Nicolas DAHER, NAHEMA’s excecutive director, if I could share this list with you on my blog. Thanks to him for giving me a positive answer, so here it is.

The catamarans mentioned above are ocean sailing cruising catamarans.
Day charter catamarans are not mentioned.
I also read in the last Boat International Issue that 2 Berret Racoupeau Designs (27 and 31 meters) were being produced but I couldn’t find any more information. In the latest issue of Showboats, the Global Order Book features a new 85 foot by JFA but again couldn’t find more information. If you have any they are very much welcome.
