HanseYachts and Privilège shipyards have teamed up work together on future sailing catamaran projects.
The two companies say the partnership will improve lead times and the production process. A new Privilège website will also be launched.
“In the last year, we have completely restructured the production at Privilège and implemented a lean, quality driven assembly line,” said HanseYachts AG CEO Dr. Jens Gerhardt in a statement. “Our experts have defined seven production phases and installed quality gates that ensure best build quality. We now have one of the most professional production lines in the catamaran business, with short lead times and a total quality management approach to decrease defect rates during production. With the focus on owners’ yachts rather than charter boats, Privilège has the same mindset as the HanseYachts AG. Therefore, we can use similar approaches at both yards.
Giles Wagner, CEO of Privilège, added, “The takeover by the HanseYachts AG was a great opportunity for us and future owners alike. HanseYachts AG is a successful and innovative company working together with the best professionals in the industry. This partnership ensures that Privilège will stay the great brand that it is today and that it will strive even further, using the combined know-how of both companies.”
HanseYachts AG will be part of the international multihull show in La Grande-Motte from April 18-22 and will be part of the Privilège display. On April 27 through May 1, the two will present the Privilège Serie 6 at the Palma international boat show.
