Suggestions for Large Catamarans . . .

I am interested in a sailing catamaran 60' or more. I am looking for endless deck space capable of being used to accommodate day charters, as well as a top of the line, eco friendly, dive platform. I would like this vessel to be able to accommodate at least five crew, if not more room for over night charters or guests.

I am basically looking for a Fountaine Pajot 75' like this one: Used 2004 Fountaine Pajot Tahiti, Unknown - 97250504 - BoatTrader.com

But I would like more space for crew to live aboard and a galley to serve guests.

Any suggestions?

From the article

Quote:
a radical Greg Young-designed yacht destined for the tourist market.

Built by Vaudrey Miller Yachts at Henderson, it was commissioned by New Zealand-based Marine Tourism Holdings for day-sail operations within their new Cruise Whitsundays business in Queensland. The company says it will prove to be the fastest bridge-deck catamaran of its type in the world.
be well over a million

Its sister ship - Earthling - wasnt actually that fast comparatively when it had a run in the B2G.

It's remarkable what you can find on Yachtworld. There are presently 182 catamarans 60 feet and over listed on Yachtworld:
