by Malcolm MacLean
News just in from Simon Turner at Northrop & Jonhnson Asia that he has the new 36.88m catamaran power yacht Phatsara for sale as the owner has already decided he wants to build a larger yacht.
Designed by Incat Crowther and built by Silkline International in Thailand to DNV standard she has a beam of 8.4 metres accommodating 13 guests while twin 1800hp Caterpillar engines give her a range of 1,500 nautical miles.
‘This is a unique catamaran, comments Simon, ‘She has been built using the very latest construction technology and the hull is superb. The yacht has great potential either privately owned or for the charter business. She has huge spaces throughout and will be extremely fuel efficient and with an excellent ride. This is the latest success in the fast developing yacht construction business in Thailand.’
Due for launch in March 2012, Phatsara is asking $8 million.
