Sailing catamaran Cartouche sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 28.95 metre catamaran sailing yacht Cartouche, listed for sale by Catherine Relandeau at Cath Yachts, has been sold with Jean-Marie Cabri at Denison Yacht Sales introducing the buyer.
Designed by Coste Design & Partners, Cartouche was built in GRP by French yard H2X Yachts to Bureau Veritas class and delivered in 2010 as a Blue Coast 95’ model. Accommodation is for eight guests in four cabins consisting of a main deck master suite while the three double guest cabins are located in the port and starboard hulls, all with en suite bathroom facilities. In addition there is crew accommodation for four members in an en suite cabin in the port hull.
The main deck saloon has comfortable seating, an entertainment centre and a formal dining area while the aft deck covered saloon has a bar and a more casual dining area. Up on the flybridge is a helm station, an amidships dining area served by a bar and grill. Large sun pads can be found on either side of the spa pool and there is a dumb waiter bringing special treats up from the galley.
Steps lead down to the water at the aft end of each hull and there is storage for water toys in each.
Cartouche was designed to be sailed with minimal crew and, accordingly, most of her deck equipment is operated hydraulically, including a rotating mast by Pettijean Composites and a High Modulus hydraulic furling boom. Sails are by North Sails and the deck equipment was supplied by Harken.
Two Cummins 425hp diesel engines, one in each hull, give her a range of 1,500 nautical miles at 8 knots.
Cartouche was asking €4,450,000.
