ELYT, which stands for Exclusive Lagoon Yachting Tahiti, is a new concept of touristic yachting which is distinguished by a design ideally adapted to Polynesian lagoons. The ambition of this houseboat is to offer a new way to discover French Polynesia with a charter product that is both ethnic and contemporary.

This catamaran has been designed and is built by the naval architect Nicolas Gruet, also manager of the Blue Composites Tahiti shipyard. Inspired by the large Polynesian double canoes, it adds a "green" touch to the turquoise shades of the lagoon thanks to its exclusively electric propulsion method, and its onboard wastewater treatment system. Even if we are not talking about a sailboat here, love and respect for the ocean remain strong family values. Alain Colas discovered the sea in the Pacific Ocean, and Tahiti for him was the culmination of a quest. It is this spirit of adventure and freedom, symbolized by the bird from the Manureva voyage, that this solar-powered catamaran aims to embody. The inspiration is local, but the construction integrates modern technologies and vacuum construction techniques bringing both comfort and safety to cruisers. With a beam of 6.30 m (20’8”) and a length of 12 m (39’4”), the catamaran offers nearly 140 m² (1,500 sq ft) of living space on two decks and integrates four double cabins, two bathrooms, a galley, a lounge-dining room and a lounge deck offering a 360° view of the turquoise water and its coral garden. ELYT is an original product that respects the environment and has the non-negligible merit of being built locally.
