Denison Sells 4 of the Largest Catamarans Ever Built

August 15, 2018 12:57 pm

With the recent sale of the 105′ CMN catamaran known as NECKER BELLE, the Denison Yachting team has now sold four of the largest catamarans ever to hit the global market. The first three consisted of the 107′ LA SELLA DEL DIAVOLO, the award-winning 95′ CARTOUCHE (pictured below) and the 90′ Gunboat, SUNSHINE.

It’s a notable feat, given most would argue that no more than 20 catamarans in the luxury, superyacht range have been built thus far, with some in the industry putting that number of true, yacht quality catamarans closer to 10. Sure, there’s a fairly long list of 150′-plus catamarans out there today, but the majority of those are widely considered commercial vessels or luxury dive boats.

The Breakdown 

At the time of her launch in 2003, NECKER BELLE was the largest and fastest performance sailing catamaran ever built, followed several years later by the 145′ HEMISPHERE – the still undisputed largest luxury sailing catamaran in the world. The 107′ LA SELLA DEL DIAVOLO was delivered in 2011 and, since then, the inventory of catamarans in this size range hasn’t exactly grown, with buyers often searching far and wide to find a high-end sailing yacht that offers such distinct characteristics.

For NECKER BELLE, it’s her bow’s extremely spacious, fully functional trampoline as well as a diving board, or her unique crow’s nest feature, which lifts guests up to the top of her mast, offering a vantage point for unbeatable views. Aboard HEMISPHERE, you’ll find a PADI certified dive center as well as a custom sportfishing tender. Meanwhile, LA SELLA DEL DIAVOLO is known for her unrivaled speed and volume, while CARTOUCHE provides a high-tech opulence with aerodynamic lines, and SUNSHINE is regarded as a top-of-the-line cruiser that affords passengers a comfortable ride, even when sailing into the 30+ knot range. 

Your Catamaran Experts 

Indeed, if this is the type of yacht you’re on the hunt for, then the Denison team is a logical choice. With their extensive knowledge of and success in the luxury catamaran market, the company’s specialists are certainly poised to represent buyers looking to purchase or begin a new build project for such a one-of-a-kind sailboat.
