Those who contributed to the construction and success of the catamaran were present at the event.

The 18.9-metre 620 was launched in 2009 as the flagship of the range. In 2012, the firm Nauta Design reinvented the interiors of this large catamaran to offer more comfort, space and brightness.

In the dining room, the settees have been entirely redesigned, as well as the ceiling, enabling more effective indirect lighting, and it now includes the option of installing adjustable blinds on al the wide vertical windows.

On the starboard side, the master suite has also been substantially modified, with a washroom placed aft on either side of the cockpit access stairs, making room for a large cupboard space in the bedroom. The forward starboard cabin, now a real V.I.P. suite, also benefits from this change due to the volume freed up by the repositioning of the master washroom. 

In a little over five years, the 620's success has not diminished. This model is sailing around the world, on every ocean.

In a few weeks, 620 No. 100 will go to sea on a cargo vessel, heading for Port Kelang in Malaysia, where its new owner awaits her along with the Simpson Marine Malaysia team - responsible for the sale of the 100th 620.

Like many other 620s, combining performance and comfort, this boat is intended for blue water cruising with a splendid programme between Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines.
