Following the success of the Long Island 85’ and the Partnership with Privilege Marine announced in September 2015, JFA Yachts is proud to announce that a S8 by Long Island has been signed by JFA Yachts.

This catamaran is a sistership of WindQuest but with a different interior veneer and a hard top on the flybridge that can be closed with isenglass closure for cold regions.

Hulls are made of aluminium while the deck and superstructure is built out of composite material. This S8 by Long Island catamaran offers spaces and performs like a 100’-110’ monohull but with a reduced draught, more space outside and inside, an increased stability which in fine offers more comfort.

This yacht will be equipped with 2 x 380HP engines and 2 x 27kW generators. The 16’ tender stowed aft of the cockpit could be launched using a lifting platform.

Outside, there is a large aft cockpit with a seating area on starboard and another one on port with a dining table, sunbeds either side, and a day head.

The cockpit is extended inside by a seating area with a bar on starboard and a dining-room on port. The inner helm station is set up against the bulkhead between the two indoor areas. The glass door aft, the large side portholes and the front windscreen create a very luminous space down below.

A few steps on port lead to the owners’ cabin. The “must-have” on the S8 by Long Island ! Stretching across the full beam of the yacht, this exceptionally large suite offers a superb view on 180°, never before seen on a sailing or even on a motor yacht of this size. A few more steps give access to a door opening on a private deck just forward of the owner’s cabin.

The port hull houses the owners’ bathroom, a 3 bed children cabin and another guest cabin is aft. There is also a guest cabin in the starboard hull, as well as the crew quarter including the skipper’s own cabin, the crew cabin, the galley and mess. The yacht offers a total of 124sqm of floor space to accommodate 9 guests and 4 crews in extreme comfort.

This S8 by Long Island offers more space and comfort than any yacht of her size.
