Douce France and Che for charter in Southeast Asia
Published: Monday, 27 May 2013
Two great sailing superyachts are available for luxury charter this summer in Southeast Asia. Fresh from a refit in Thailand, S/Y Douce France, a 42-metre catamaran built in 1998 and designed by legendary multihull experts VPLP, will be accepting charters in Indonesia and later, in the Marshall Islands. Douce France is an exceptional charter yacht, with six cabins that can be doubles or twins, suiting charter parties of up to 12 people. For diving enthusiasts, Douce France has eight sets of Scuba gear, plus an on-board compressor. There are also a range of toys that can be deployed, including two RIB tenders for watersports, four kayaks and two Laser dinghies for sailing enthusiasts. Douce France can also achieve good speeds under sail, with the crew reporting top speeds of up to 18 knots under sail.
The 37-metre superyacht Che will be available for charters in Fiji for the next three months before moving to Vanuatu and New Caledonia. The owners are considering a further trip to Palau. Guests will be able to relax in the flagship from Sunreef, which has been designed with particular care for foodies. A huge galley was placed on the main deck, as the owners enjoy cooking for themselves. There is also a custom built wine cellar onboard, and plenty of lounging space on the main deck. In order to improve performance, much of Che's structure is in carbon fibre, and she has reportedly managed up to 20 knots under sail.
