ALLIAURA GROUP SUPER CATAMARANS(PRIVILEGE RANGE)
Can Alliaura recapture their former glory as the international leader in custom luxury catamaran builds? While its true internal changes and a sluggish period allowed some other manufacturers through the door this impeccable builder is starting to reshape itself with announcement of the upcoming construction of the Privilege.
The Privilege 745 is set to become the first of a new generation of semi custom mega catamarans.
Early Indicators show that Alliaura is shifting away from smaller multihulls towards high quality, state of the art catamarans ranging from high 50-80 ft plus semi custom models.
Additionally, there are unconfirmed reports on the imminent release of a new 60 ft range catamaran, which may be launched in less then a year.
Sources indicate that it will it will follow the design characteristics and aesthetics of the 745.
