Marine Privilege, a smooth entry into the power catamaran market

Furio, Marine Privilege

Since the takeover in 2012, Privilège Marine has launched the Furio and Euphorie engine catamarans, with very different programs. The brand explains its strategy in the motor multihull segment.

Nevertheless, potential customers can rely on the existing sailboat to imagine their future motor unit, often a crucial element in the purchase decision.

Continue on the engine market

The Vendée brand intends to continue its efforts to become a recognized engine player and thus occupy the entire range of catamarans and open up to a new clientele. Euphoria 5 becomes the bridge between the sailboats and the Furio...
