The largest ever composite yacht built in France, La Pellegrina was built in carbon-reinforced Kevlar by French yard Chantier Naval Couach (CNC) and delivered in 2012 as a Couach 5000 Fly model. Designed by CNC’s in-house team, she has interior design by Jean-Pierre Fantini and accommodates 12 guests in six cabins. The master suite is on the upper deck while the VIP suite is located on the main deck. The four guest cabins, three featuring queen berths and one cabin with twin beds, are all located on the lower deck. Each has full en-suite heads, large showers, white marble and plenty of storage.
The saloon is open plan with a large relaxation area aft and, separated by a low credenza, is a forward formal dining area with seating for 12 guests. More casual dining and entertaining is available on the expansive aft deck with two dining tables. Up on the sun deck there is room for further al fresco dining with three settees, sun pads and a spa pool.
She is powered by twin 5,240hp MTU engines giving her a maximum speed of 28 knots, a cruising speed of 25 knots and a transatlantic range. To ensure she is as comfortable at sea or in port, she is fitted with Sea Keeper gyroscopic stabilizers.
Lying in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, La Pellegrina was asking €21 million.
