ALCYON 125 - A NEW DESIGN BY PAUL RENAUD

Last year, I introduced the ALCYON 120, an elegant design by Paul Renaud. Paul just sent me this new design the ALCYON 125, a little bit longer but really innovative at deck and flybridge level.




I think this design is very much inspired by latest motor yachts trends. By that I mean it offers a lots of space and confort on the flybridge and a huge salon protected by slidding windows. This is very new for a catamaran since most of the time designers prefer to keep an open cockpit. On the flybridge you will find relaxing mattresses and a dining table protected from the wind by a large window which should enable the guests to enjoy eating while sailing. The helm stations are located on both sides, away from the guests and protected from the sun. Dinghy and toys are located at flybridge level with a crane to launch. Right below you will see a platform with windows to look at the sea.




A jacuzzi is at mast food with on both relaxing matresses while anchored.
The interior can be designed according to the need of the owner as private or charter version.

Paul Renaud is an expert in 3ds. He has worked for many industries.

The same in a different color, this show the importance of hull colour for a yacht.

I know Paul (from a distance) for over a year now. Our company (Caribbean Villas and Yachts Inc.) represents his catamaran designs on the other site of the Atlantic. He is a terrific designer who knows what he is doing very well. This latest design is a beautiful example how a large luxury catamaran needs to be designed.
