Privilege 515 catamaran : The development of the Privileges


The Vendée-based builder's production is oriented resolutely towards the coveted multi-yacht segment, yet the new 2009 model presented at the autumn boat shows is a 50-footer! It is very different from the 495, but appears almost ‘reasonable', compared to its elder sisters, the 615, 745 and the superlative 1000.

Privilege 515 catamaran : An avant-garde silhouette

Innovating without overplaying the role, expressing the full potential of a 15-metre platform without caricaturing, is a high-risk challenge in a competitive market, where R & D departments and interior designers put spokes in each other’s wheels! Leaving aside the debatable flybridge, the Privilege 515 catamaran project team has succeeded, with an a esthetically convincing result. The Privilege 515 catamaran silhouette is resolutely different, and achieves its aim. To the eye, it offers a tight, contemporary design which enriches the new Alliaura signature. The hull sides have been the subject of special architectural attention. The ‘step’, overhanging the hull is well-integrated, the perspective lines created by clever use of Perspex surfaces combined with a studied coachroof profile reduce the impression of volume. The Privilege 515 catamaran has unquestionably got style. Its elegant design would be set off bymore audacious decoration (colour, transfers, etc...). .

The lifting davits form a pertinent solution, the steering position at mid-level merges into the overall lines. Only the mechanically-welded fittings on the forward crossbeam break up the fluidity of the lines, and call for a structural treatment of this element. From the exterior, the overall perception is positive; the Privilege 515 catamaran breaks free of the classic route taken by the 495. These catamarans express two successful, but very different approaches to (very) comfortable multihull cruising. The Privilege 515 catamaran is aimed at a more elitist clientele, looking for originality.
