September 2011 – Press release
JFA has positioned itself in the semi-custom catamaran market.
The architect Marc Lombard and JFA Yachts have developed a new concept for long crossing catamarans. Catamaran, for semicustom construction. The first order was recently signed. The office of Marc Lombard has put all of their 25 years of experience with cruising and racing catamarans into this new 85’. The firm is also responsible for the interior design. By her size and her freeboard, this catamaran is designed to sail far and in the greatest comfort. The hulls and the bottom of the nacelle will be made of aluminum while the deck and superstructures will be made of composite. The desired goal is to build a multi-hull with its weight adapted to its navigation program. This catamaran proposes an innovative interior for her size: one owners cabin with a panoramic view forward in the nacelle and direct access to the trampoline. The interior saloon offers a 360° view and is equipped with an inside helm station, living area and bar. In the starboard hull there is one guest cabin, a large office and the owners bathroom. In the port hull there is a second guest cabin, the galley and 2 crew cabins. As shown here in the 3D illustrations, the outside areas are vast. The technical installations are concentrated in the engine room. The yacht will be equipped with a large tender (15’8”). A choice of layout options will be available for the Long Island 85’.
