Published: Tuesday, 17 April 2012
Simpson Superyachts, Asia's leading superyacht broker, has partnered with Cannes-based Blue Coast Yachts to promote the brand in Asia. Blue Coast Yachts was founded by designer Jean-Jaques Coste of Coste Design & Partners, an international award-winning boutique design firm that has been at the forefront of the catamaran market, boasting unique expertise in the design and construction of some of the world’s largest carbon fibre catamarans that have been launched to date.
Blue Coast Yachts luxury catamarans are the latest generation of mega yachts. They marry the efficiency of the catamaran concept with the design and building technologies of modern yachting. New materials, powerful software, transfer of technology, integration of eco-friendly solutions, and many other innovations are complemented by luxurious outfitting and interior décor that make Blue Coast Yachts avant-garde.
The team is currently developing projects ranging from 85ft to 200ft, offering the largest luxury yachts one can find in the market. Among them is Blue Coast 165’, which will be the largest sailing catamaran in the world. She is designed with four decks (two in each hull), providing expansive private space for both passengers and crew. With a high quality composite structure which is both light and resistant, the yacht’s hull has outstanding seagoing capabilities and is able to perform in any sea conditions.
Paul Whelan, General Manager, said “We are delighted to be able to work with Blue Coast Yachts in Asia. Their yachts perfectly complement the best selling Lagoon catamarans marketed by our sister company Simpson Marine. Many of our customers have shown interest in moving up to a bigger catamaran than is currently available from Lagoon and Blue Coast’s range of Power and Sailing Catamaran ‘superyachts’ are ideally suited to meet this demand.”
