    KELEA is a gorgeous 1994 Privilege 65 catamaran designed by the renowned naval architect Marc Lombard and built by Alliaura Marine in France. She was built to the very strict Bureau Veritas standards. She has always been operated and cared for by a professional captain and crew who have worked passionately for an owner who has paid careful attention to her care over the past few years.

    At the beginning of her life, she was very successfully operated as a crewed charter vessel in the Caribbean. In 2012, her owner pulled her from the charter fleet and she underwent an extensive refit which brought her back to "Bristol Condition". She was then operated as a private yacht until 2017 when she resumed crewed charter operation. As luck would have it, she was located in Grenada during the devastating 2017 hurricane season and has never suffered any hurricane damage. She still shows in great condition and would be ideal for global voyaging or she can continue to operate in luxury crewed charter. Since she is operating in crewed charter she must always remain in perfect working order. A yachts reputation is everything in the charter business and Kelea has earned her exceptional standing.

    Kelea is ideal for anyone who is looking for a superb boat to do world cruising with a large family or is exceptionally well suited as an expedition style adventure platform. Privilege Catamarans are built stout to a level of quality that cannot be matched by the large volume production builders. Examine her extensive inventory and refit history, and you will quickly see that she is at the top of the pack for any catamaran of this size under $1,000,000.

    Kelea is available for showings by appointment in beautiful St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands.

    The boat underwent a 10 month major interior refit in Lauderdale Marine Center, Ft Lauderdale in 2010/2011:

    • The main salon windows were replaced with new, pre-formed, uv resistant, tinted acrylic windows. [ aircraft grade acrylic ]
    • All 5 guest cabin heads and shower stalls were stripped back to the bare hull and rebuilt with gel coated fiberglass sheeting.
    • The marine heads in the 5 guest cabins were replaced with Head Hunter toilets
    • All sinks, hardware, plumbing, and lighting were replaced in the heads
    • The vinyl head liners were replaced throughout the salon and the crew cabins.
    • The air conditioning fan units were replaced in all 7 cabins.
    • LED lighting was fitted to all cabins and areas.
    • Large areas of wood paneling in the Master cabin and Salon were repaired or replaced.

    Lauderdale Marine Center, April November 2012:

    • Replaced both main engines, and both generators.
    • The engine rooms were stripped back to the hull and remodeled.
    • New paint and sound insulation.
    • New fuel system and filters.
    • Electrical wiring was remodeled and up graded.
    • Dive Compressor was rebuilt by a factory agent.
    • A new Mainsail and Genoa were fitted.


    The two refit periods in Florida improved the boat hugely, but besides those, two other major upgrades were done that also improved the boat greatly are

    Removed the original aluminum toe rails, stanchion bases and mooring cleats. These were all corroded, ugly, and under sized. They were replaced with aluminum toe rails with molded composite sections bonded to the hull. The goal was to make it look like the boat came from the factory like this. The mooring cleats and Stanchion bases were replaced with solid Stainless Steel units that are beautiful and hugely stronger than the originals.

    Originally she had a fabric cockpit awning over a metal tube frame. The owner replaced this with a composite hard top, the unit was light enough for two people to pick up before it was installed, yet strong enough for 10 people to dance on (this was the design parameter set). They went to a lot of trouble to make the hardtop compliment the lines of the boat and make it look like it was factory fitted.

    With the new hardtop, she gained a huge lounging area on top, and, with the side and aft curtains, a rain proof cockpit that can serve as a dining or lounging area in any weather.


    The boat was brought to the Caribbean by the original owner to do charter. She was sold to the second owner in the early 2000’s and hecontinued doing approx 20 weeks of charter per year in the Caribbean. After about 5 years the owner took her out of charter in order to have time to do larger refit projects, and then he decided to keep her for private use and not return to charter.

    In 2017, she was sold in an estate sale and purchased by the current owner. She went back to operating as a crewed charter catamaran based out of the Virgin Islands.

    She has spent most of her life in the Eastern Caribbean, with a few years away for the Florida refits and two seasons in Belize and Panama.
