The first Long Island 78 Power catamaran by JFA Yachts has been delivered to her owner and will shortly be leaving her home port of Concarneau, France, on her maiden voyage.
Christened 4Ever, the 24 metre superyacht will cruise the Mediterranean Sea before making a crossing to the West Indies and then onto the Pacific.
The new model was developed in collaboration with long-term design partner Marc Lombard. Vital statistics include an 11.17 metre beam and a maximum draught of just 1.24 metres — making this an ideal option for those looking to enjoy some shallow water cruising.
The hull of the yacht has been built from aluminium, while lightweight composites have been used for the superstructure. The interior décor will be developed by Franck Darnet Design from a mixture of oak and darker timbers.
Accommodation is for up to ten guests split between five staterooms, including a 20 square metre owner’s suite and a guest cabin in the portside hull and three further cabins in the starboard hull.
The main deck is comprised of a saloon, dining area, galley and navigation area, with the main helm position situated on the flybridge.
In terms of al fresco relaxation, guests will be able to choose between the sheltered cockpit or the spacious foredeck. Other key features include a seawater swimming pool and a hydraulic platform for launching the yacht's tender.
Power comes from a pair of 500hp engines for a top speed of 18 knots and comfortable cruising at 12 knots. At a speed of eight knots, she boasts a cruising range of 3,400 nautical miles.
