Inspiration Marine Group, one of the UK’s largest new-boat dealerships, has been made an agent for the Privilège Marine range of catamarans in the UK and Ireland.

Privilège was established in France by Philippe Jeantot, founder of the Vendee Globe round-the-world yacht race. Germany’s Hanse Group, which had been looking to add a catamaran builder to its extensive portfolio of sail and powerboat brands, acquired the brand in May last year.

Inspiration Marine is already one of the largest distributors of Hanse Group products, representing the Hanse, Dehler and Fjord brands from four offices across the UK.

The Privilège range currently comprises 50ft, 60ft and 70ft sailing catamarans, soon to be joined by a 50ft powercat this autumn.
