The world’s largest luxury catamaran, S/Y HEMISPHERE has found a fitting base this week in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.

Hemisphere boasts the ultimate fusion of extravagance and dynamic performance. Launched in 2011, this stunning 44.2m (approximately 145 feet) sailing vessel was designed by renowned naval architects and multihull specialists Van Peteghem Lauriot Prévost.

This impressive cruising cat was created with relaxation and adventure in mind. The build was performed by Pendennis Shipyard (UK) with the interior fit up executed by Metrica Interior (Germany). Hemisphere’s imposing size allows ample room for all the luxuries our guests desire, while also making her conducive to sail or motor at high speeds. Being a catamaran, she is also stable at sea.

Michael Leach Design is responsible for the interior as well as the exterior guest areas. Hemisphere comfortably accommodates up to 12 luxury charter guests, and no two cabins are identical. Fifteen types of stone, 18 different leathers, and a variety of finishes including walnut soles, brushed oak and wengé, mark a distinctively astonishing interior decorum best described as “Polynesian Six Star Luxury.”

Outside, the flybridge presents tremendous deck space for recreation, while an inviting seating area surrounds an irresistible spa pool. The main aft deck features a unique oval-shaped glass table intricately etched from beneath its surface with a contoured map of the world’s seven continents. The lavish formal dining area resides on the deck below.

Whatever your desire, it is all here. Hemisphere is your escape from the world you know, and your entry into the world you’ve only imagined.
