SCOOP! Code C.69 - A first multihull for Black Pepper Yachts!

Create a notification for "Catamaran"

The Code C.69, featuring hulls inspired by the latest generation of large ocean-going catamarans, is intended for offshore racing and cruising. The silhouette and many of the details, just like with the monohull range, are the result of a clever combination of high tech and vintage. This approach is almost unique in the world of multihulls, with the notable exception of the Sparkman & Stephens 50' Catamaran project (see MW176), and thus deserves praise. While the all-carbon construction guarantees excellent performance, the builder, based in Nantes on France’s Atlantic coast, is keen to present a catamaran that’s easy to handle: “On board, nothing is left to chance,” explains Michel Douville de Franssu, founder and owner of Black Pepper Yachts, “Sea keeping, ergonomics, ease of handling, living spaces, equipment and luxurious materials, cabins, bathrooms, cockpit lounge, everything is thought out to ensure comfort, safety and self-sufficiency for the Owner and their guests. The Code C.69 is also designed to be operated short-handed.” Launch is scheduled for 2024.
