Hull No. 1 from Turkish builder Curvelle — the 110-foot Quaranta, which we first told you about back in 2013 — will be available for charter this summer on the French Riviera.

Hill Robinson Charter Management is offering Quaranta at a weekly base rate of about $131,000 for 12 guests.

Quaranta is marketed as a "super catamaran" with interior volume that rivals what charter guests find aboard monohull yachts approaching 140 feet length overall. The staterooms are designed to be rearranged as doubles, twins or triples, creating more than 20 possible combinations depending on the needs of the charter party.

Cruising speed: 10 to 18 knots, for leisurely Riviera sightseeing or zipping to St. Tropez in time for cocktails.
