Blue Coast Yachts, the French leader in customized yacht catamarans construction, has found an owner for its 95′ catamaran designed by Coste Design & Partners.
Blue Coast Yachts has entrusted French Riviera based designer Jean-Jacques Coste president of Coste Design & Partners with the drafting of fully customizable, naval architecture and interior plans following the requirements of a fine European sailor.
With a length of 28m and a 12m over beam the Blue Coast 95′ will boast roomy living accommodations and premium performance. Constructed in female molds from a sandwich of glass/carbon under vacuum with infusion process, the Blue Coast 95’ will benefit from a lightweight yet highly durable structure.
The Blue Coast 95’ features high end equipments and innovative architecture with giant in and out living area, huge fly bridge equipped with Jacuzzi, dining area, sun bathing area, bar, helm station, etc. Therefore an aft hydraulic platform performs the tender operations and water sports activities.
The opening Lazarettes include diving equipments, sea toys and a three seats Jet Ski. The main deck offers a fore full sea view from the owner’s suite, an interior helm station, a professional gourmet galley and a comfortable saloon. The 3 guest cabins and the owner’s bathroom are located in the hulls and are guaranteed to please the most exacting of yachtsmen.
The modern and stylish interior designed by Coste Design & Partners Interior Department managed by Franck Delabarre is closely following the tastes and ideas of the owner’s wife with ceruse oak panels and matt grey leather furniture. The open exterior terrace which is separated from the interior by wide opening sliding doors includes an open space salon with a dining area and stairs leading to the minimalistic flybridge.
The ultra chic hull line is a result of Coste’s advanced design technologies. Extensive works have been done on the performances and sea capabilities using Computational Flow Dynamic (CFD) at its best level and the structural calculation is done by Finite Elements Analysis (FEA) for the best optimization of the structural parts.
“The Blue Coast 95′ is the first mega catamaran to offer a revolutionary furling boom system perfectly adapted to the catamaran configuration. Using a carbon mast and boom, the simple and efficient rigging makes the navigation very comfortable and safe while speed under sail should easily attends more to 15 knots, this is as well the top speed reached under power with a comfortable cruising speed of 13 knots” says Jean-Jacques Coste.
The BC 95 will be built at the H2X shipyard in LaCiotat, which has earned a good reputation for composite material shipbuilding. “H2X is a very pertinent solution for the building of this luxury catamaran,” declares Jean-Jacques Coste,
“In addition to their perfect location and facilities, they have a huge experience in composite building with resin infusion process, they have this indispensable know-how in terms of engineering and management, and above that they are passionate by what they are doing.” Delivery of the yacht to her owner, an European businessman, is scheduled
for July 2010.
The successful signing off on this project is partly due to a meeting of the minds between the owner and the representative of Blue Coast Yachts’ Megayacht Catamarans, André Cosson during Cannes Boat Show last year. Megayacht Catamarans’ participation this past year in numerous worldwide yachting events, including the Abou Dhabi Yacht Show, Moscow Boat Show, the Cannes Boat Show and Fort Lauderdale Boat Show is expected to continue building enthusiasm from experienced and discerning yachtsmen.
