H2X and Coste Design & Partners are building together the Blue Coast 95′, the first maxi-catamaran of this new range created by COSTE DESIGN & PARTNERS. The Blue Coast 95’ will be the fourth largest catamaran in the world.

Contemporary design, precious wooden, panoramic views, oversize spaces, the naval architect and designer Jean-Jacques COSTE, with unrivaled expertise, created a world-class ship to meet the guests pleasure and the requirements of the crew activities.

Ideal for comfort, sailing performances, entertaining and relaxation, the Blue Coast 95’ features the best compromise between security, luxurious fittings and top quality equipments.

The Blue Coast 95’ will include a retractable boom (unique for a boat of that size) thanks to the partnership specifically developed between H2X, COSTE DESIGN & PARTNERS and the sail maker PETIT JEAN COMPOSITES. The catamaran will use a sail plan with a 230 sqm main sail, a 115 sqm solent, a 280 sqm gennaker on a 110 ft pivoting mast.

The construction began in July 2009 with the modeling of the project by the H2X design and engineering department, and the construction of 2 hulls in composite. The hulls were assembled in December. Since the beginning of the year, partitions, systems and the floor have been laid. Fittings are currently under construction and the painting of the ship has begun.

The composite department is currently adding on the roof via the “one‐shot” infusion process. This part has an area of 198m² and requires all the know‐how and the experience of H2X teams. The perfect management of the process will contribute to reaching the ambitious objective of a large ship construction in less than 18 months.

The official launch of the ship will take place during the Cannes boat show from 8 to 13 September 2010.
