JFA Yachts Long Island 78 catamaran sold


24m catamaran motor yacht

French yard JFA Yachts will build a 24m catamaran motor yacht.

The new vessel is part of the Long Island range and is currently known as the Long Island 78 Power. It was developed in collaboration with the designer Marc Lombard.


The yacht will have a beam of 11m and a maximum draft of 1.24m, making her ideal for shallow water cruising.


Designed for large trips, the hulls will be made of aluminum while the deck and superstructures will be composite. Powered by two engine of 500 hp, the cruising speed is set at 12 knots with a maximum speed of 15 knots. Like the previous Long Island, JFA Yachts and Marc Lombard have focused on the weight of the boat and its equipment. This displacement and the desired speed make it possible to install engines of reasonable size in order to lower the fuel consumption and the size of the tanks while offering a transatlantic autonomy.


The interior design and exterior styling of the boat will be by Franck Darnet Design. She can accommodate ten guests in five staterooms. An inner wheelhouse will be installed on the flybridge. This space, designated for navigation, will also host a banquette and an office so you can relax and enjoy the view.
