While I was in Lorient I met with Franck Darnet who designed the new interior of the legendary Magic Cat. Franck gave me the pictures of the new “Magic Cat” which is actually sailing in the pacific. They look really great and are by Eric Pinel a talented photographer based in Tahiti.
I was lucky a few years ago to board the Gilles Ollier 80 foot design in Martinique. This fast cat looked very nice from the outside but the inside was kind of cold. Franck Darnet kept the interior structure and added smart touches of light wood laminate which make a big difference. Part of the cockpit was also redesigned. The difference between the old and the new are striking, check at my older post. This shows the interest of hiring a design when refit a yacht interior.
This is a slide-show of the pictures taken by Eric Pinel in the Pacific but you should also check the 360 ° interactive visit of Magic Cat on Eric Pinel‘s website.
