H2X launches the Blue Coast 95
by Raphael Montigneaux
Here's another exclusive as the French yard H2X based in La Ciotat launched the Blue Coast 95 yesterday.
The Blue Coast 95 is designed by Coste Design & Partners. Bureau Veritas classed, with a length of 28.8m and a beam of 12m, she joins the limited fleet of large luxury sailing catamarans cruising the world's oceans.
The Blue Coast 95 is built in composite, an infusion of epoxy resin/glass fibre/carbon fibre and PU foam core. She has a rotating carbon wing mast measuring 33m in height. The mast and the boom come from Petitjean Composites. She's powered by twin Cummins engines of 425hp each allowing a maximum speed of 15 knots and a range of 1,500 nautical miles at her cruising speed.
Accommodation is for 8 guests. The master is on the main deck, while three double guest cabins are on the lower deck.
Another cabin is dedicated to a crew of 4.
Scheduled to be delivered to her lucky owners before the end of the year, the Blue Coast 95 will be christened Cartouche.
