Phocea

State of the Art” sailing mega-yacht ! Phocea is the largest privately owned sailing yacht in the world, and she is owned by a woman ! She was built at the Toulon Naval Dockyard in 1976 for the well-reputed, single-handed yachtsman Alain Colas. Shortly after competing in the Observer Single Handed Transatlantic Race she was converted into the charter yacht CLUB MEDITERRANEE. In July 1997, PHOCEA was purchased by her existing Owner and she began her transformation into a luxury sailing yacht at Lurssen. Whilst retaining her unmistakable identity, she has benefited from major interior and exterior upgrading throughout. The interior boasts fine living and accommodation areas with beautiful wood panelling, tasteful decorations and some exquisite David Linley furniture. The Owner’s suite, commanding fine views, is situated on the main deck whilst the VIP guest cabin and four other double cabins, all with full ensuite facilities, are located on the lower deck. At 75m and with top recorded speeds of over 30 knots as well as a Trans-Atlantic crossing in just over eight days, she is also one of the fastest. Phocea is a truly unique yacht that turns heads wherever she goes. In regards to equipment ? You name it and she has it !
