Yapluka 53 catamaran
A shipyard called Yapluka, a catamaran with the same name... (a play of words in French: all that’s left to do) Even before she’s tested, this catamaran has the smell of the high seas, a call to hoist the mainsail, unfurl the jib and let the keels of the aluminum hulls glide toward all the world’s oceans. Her designers describe this as a boat on which you can live, well. Thus, ready to travel. Meant for a demanding owner. An experienced sailor looking for a certain quality of life.All that’s left to do is...
At the start, there is the choice of man who drew up specifications for a very special personal catamaran. The study resulted in an aluminum catamaran more than 50 feet long. There was nothing like that on the market. So it had to be invented and was designed by the Berret/Racoupeau firm. Yapluka catamaran was born. Then someone had to build the boat. But the dream had changed; life on the water was no longer a possibility. Then came the idea of marketing the concept. Although aluminum is appreciated for cruising monohulls for which it is increasingly used, it has so far been rarely used for multihulls. Catamarans and performance demand light displacement… Yet, aluminum has many advantages in construction by the unit, compared to polyester: no cast, no structural partitions imposing the arrangement of features. We spent two days on board this exceptional catamaran to have a realistic opinion of her assets. The story of a stay in a 5-star boat.
