Noah 88 was a preliminary project undertaken in collaboration with the former owner of Douce France in a bid to develop a range of motor-catamarans which could maintain a cruising speed of 12–15 knots. The Noah range was designed for comfort and habitability with broad living areas spread over three levels. All three models feature cosy wooden interiors with plenty of natural light and furnishings designed by Kenzo and Anne-Monique Bonadei. The 76’ version was given a habitable surface area of 260 m².
The boats were to be built in aluminium for sturdiness, power and endurance. Two 500 HP engines and a high-performance hull shape should provide an operating range of more than 3,000 nautical miles. Her shallow draught should enable her to sail and anchor close to the shore.
