Using the best composite production facility in the world it will be the most technologically evolved catamaran on the market. It will also be the first vessel of its kind to host a giant toy locker specially commissioned for its motorcycle enthusiast owner.
Sporting a proud history of being at the cutting edge of Offshore Racing Multihull development, the Vantage design team, comprising Nigel Irens Design (NID) and Christophe Chedal Anglay (CCA) has fused its specialist expertise with the particular requirements of the catamaran’s intrepid British owner in order to create an adventure vessel that will enable him to reach the most remote locations and cross islands by motorcycle.
The Vantage 86 will also be the longest, lightest and fastest sailing yacht ever built that conforms to the MCA code for small craft engaged in commercial operations, ensuring profitable returns and therefore greater value to any prospective owner.
Capable of accommodating two motorbikes on board – a Ducati Multistrada and a CCM trials bike – the exclusively designed motorcycle space can also double up as a watersports or dive locker, with the alternative option of additional accommodation space depending on the chosen configuration.
An exceptional British bespoke furniture and interior design studio has joined the team to create and fit the innovative interiors in what this adventurerous owner expects to be the first of several Vantage 86 catamarans.
Phil Scott, managing director of Vantage Catamarans:
“The Vantage 86 is unique in its intention and form, designed to break the mould of what a modern cruising catamaran represents. It is designed to perform, and combine a racing pedigree with the comfort of a stable charter yacht. Its goal is ‘adventure’. It will provide the most adventurous way of exploring the ocean and its secrets.”
The Vantage 86 will be the pinnacle of racing and charter catamarans – the point at which these two seemingly disparate worlds come together.
