LUXURY CATAMARAN WEBSITE - THE WINNER IS LADY BARBARETTA


The winner of the pool "your favorite catamaran website" is LADY BARBARETA (CMN), followed by CHE (SUNREEF) and WONDERDFUL (YAPLUKA). Thanks to the 31 readers who have participated to the pool. The results seems logical to me and it would be a shame for LADY BARBARETTA not to finish first since she is or was (if you know if she has been sold yet let me know) the property of Richard Branson, the communication gourou. Richard Branson bought this yacht at the end of year 2005 at a time it was listed by the marketing agressive Edminston company at 9.2 Million $. (via Luxist). The main advantage of LADY B website is the quality of the pictures and really of the three video displayed : lifestyle, onboard and water. Watching the movies really makes you want to charter this catamaran which offers great leaving space inside and performance under sail. You can find more information about LADY B in this previous post I wrote in April. This pool has generated quite a few connection to the catamarans website. Maybe I will launch another pool soon, if there is a subject you would be interested in let me know.

dear anonymous, during the dusseldorf boat show I met with the project manager of lady barbaretta and with a broker who just had the captain online. Both told me lady b was just having a refit done, nothing bad or serious.
