Sleek, sophisticated, sexy and incredibly fast, this 138ft catamaran, known as ‘the gentle giant’ is the largest in her category, and combines spaciousness, cleanliness, culinary excellence with the charms of a traditional sailing boat, the stability of a catamaran and the result of excellent design and construction by the world’s finest craftsmen.

Douce France is a luxury sailing catamaran perfectly equipped for charter worldwide to discover the world’s most beautiful and unspoiled places whilst submerged in the highest standards of luxury in the yachting industry. She is built for adventure and graces the world seas with her gentle, yet impressive, appearance. Guests appreciate her spaciousness and the aft deck is an exquisite sunbathing area or lends itself to cherish a perfect sunset over the infinite ocean. Her trampolines are exceedingly spacious, offering enough room for guests to sprawl out on and feel the sea spray as she glides along.

The boat is designed to accommodate 12 guests in 6 brightly lit and air-conditioned staterooms with ensuites. Each of them is attractively lined with pale sycamore wood. The chic linen beckons the guests to a restful night’s sleep.

Dining on Douce France is where one will appreciate the presence of French knowledge in the art of gastronomy. Masterful creations fresh from the sea are artfully presented on Limoges china and are enhanced by a wine selection that is perhaps one of the most extensive offered on board any charter vessel. French haute cuisine as well as Japanese, Indian, Thai or Creole preparations with fresh fish and local ingredients will leave everyone not asking for more. Based on the client’s preferences, the chef will personalize every meal. A professional crew will serve comfortably seated gourmets, the finest meals prepared in a modern stainless-steel galley.
