Completed in 1986, the shipyard fitted the all-aluminium yacht with two extremely powerful engines and a hydrofoil devise to be able to reach a staggering 62.5 knots during her first sea trials. Although operating at much lower speeds today, Chato remains a favourite on the Côte d’Azur where she is based in St Tropez.
