World’s Largest Crewed Catamaran Charter Yacht Nears Completion

Hemisphere, the world's largest crewed sailing catamaran multihull

With a delivery date to her owner set for later this month, sail yacht HEMISPHERE is set to join the list of the world’s newest and largest yachts.

With an overall length of 145 feet, catamaran sailing yacht Hemisphere will qualify for the record as the world’s largest luxury sailing catamaran. Built in the UK by the Pendennis Shipyard, the multihull yacht features the naval architecture of Van Peteghem Lauriot Prévost (VPLP) – designers of the 33rd America’s Cup winning multihull. Michael Leach Design studios are handling the interior. Insiders report this pooling of talent has resulted in an innovative design – blending speed and stability with space and contemporary style.

Decks are uncluttered as visible deck hardware has been minimized, and the 190 foot tall mast soars free of spreaders, with all lines concealed internally. Tenders are also stowed out of sight and the port transom houses a full watersports and dive locker served by a large hydraulic swim platform.

With a draft of just under 10 feet, catamaran Hemisphere can cruise shallow draft destinations, making her ideal for Bahama yacht charters and other shallow areas throughout the Caribbean. The big cat features a spacious flybridge with Jacuzzi, sunpads, and shaded dining, as well as a roomy indoor/outdoor living areas on the main deck.

Five comfortable cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms offer accommodations for 10 to 12 guests. A professional crew of 8 will operate the yacht during its inaugural season this summer, restricted to owner’s use in the Mediterranean. Charter activity will commence this winter, 2011, in the Caribbean with rates starting at €175,000 per week.
