2018 JFA 85 ft World Cruiser Catamaran NDSE

85 ft


NDSE is hull #2 in the Long Island 85 series. In the constant search for weight
reduction JFA Yachts paid particular attention to the use of light materials,
including laminates on honeycomb cores for the construction of the interior, the
hull out of aluminum, a superstructure made of composite, and the Mast and Boom
are made of Carbon Fiber. This resulted in a lightship weight of only 56T for
this 85′ performance, cruising catamaran. Delivered in 2018, NDSE was designed
for circumnavigation through both poles, and has already been taken to
Antarctica by her current owner. Whether you are cruising in the tropics or the
arctic the NDSE is built to make sure you are comfortable and safe in all

Equipped with a carbon mast and boom, NDSE features a sail plan tailored for
high-performance sailing together with hydraulic fittings on the flybridge which
ensures she is easily handled, even with a reduced crew. Externally, the yacht
offers a large aft cockpit with a relaxing seating area on starboard and a
dining table on the port side, together with large sunbathing areas and a
daytime toilet. In order to limit the overall weight of the boat, the use of
teak was limited to the deck forward of the owner’s cabin, the aft cockpit, and
the flybridge.

In terms of performance under sail, she is very quick…. The sails were made by
the highly respected sailmaker “Incidences” using the latest D4 membrane
technology in order to combine form with stability, lightness, and longevity.
NDSE achieves 11 knots upwind and 12 knots under gennaker at 90 °, with 15 knots
of true wind meaning that she is capable of very good daily averages when

French interior design house, Darnet Design, created a sophisticated yet
understatedly elegant interior using natural tones. The furniture is in oak,
contrasted by the addition of walnut with the space enhanced by the addition of
multiple soft furnishings in bright colors to lift the entire space to another
level and also allowing for an element of customisation by the new owner.

The cockpit flows into the huge main saloon, with a bar on starboard and a more
formal dining area on port side. Forward is the chart table which includes all
the navigation equipment, significantly upgraded for global exploration by the
owner, together with entertainment and excellent communication systems which
allow for long stays on board.

The owner’s cabin occupies the entire beam of the boat, including a lounge area
and large windows which flood the room with light and allow for splendid
panoramic views as well as private access to the foredeck.

The port hull accommodates the owner’s bathroom, a children’s cabin with 3 beds,
together with a guest cabin aft. The aft section of the starboard hull
accommodates the 4th guest cabin. The forward section is dedicated to the crew
with the captain’s cabin, a double cabin, and large galley with crew mess.

A 16′ tender aft of the cockpit is launched using a Tenderlift platform.

The many exterior lockers offer ample storage for fenders and mooring lines as
well as an array of leisure equipment (inflatable longboards, Wakeboard,
etc.). NDSE also has a large trunk overlooking the rear platform to store 4
bicycles as well as diving equipment.
