Charter Description:

Super yacht Douce France (42.2m / 138.5') is one of the largest sailing catamarans in the world, offered for yacht charter at the same time.  Launched in 1998 by French Alu Marine Shipyard, this Peteghen & Lauriot Prevost design mega yacht is one of the most luxurious boats offered for charter. She was last refited in 2009 and it conforms to stringent maritime requirements as she conforms to SOLAS and Bureau Veritas category 3 as a true commercial passenger vessel. On top of sumptuous luxury her yacht charter guests will find on board, she is also a fast sailing yacht, cruising at 9.5kn and reaching maximum speeds of close to 20kn in perfect conditions.

Douce France is one of the most famous sailing yachts in the world, secretly known as ''the gentle giant''.  She regularly cruises in the most beautiful regions, lately around New Zealand and Fiji, and as such is one of the most prestigious offerings in the luxury crewed yacht charter market today.  She also has a unique 250-bottle wine cellar, with a great selection of the world's most famous wines on board.
