Fountaine Pajot announced a new 40-feet entry-level sailing catamaran: the new Isla 40 will replace the Lucia 40 sailing catamaran and will be available from early 2021. Her name is self-evident and she need to set the benchmark for sailing catamarans of this size.
The 12m Isla 40 embodies the spirit of French yard Fountaine Pajot and is distinguished by invigorating lines. The catamaran features inverted bows and a particular saloon where the chart table is accessible from the entrance. Her performance is complemented by optimal liveability with the option of three or four double cabins plus the possibility of a skipper’s cabin if required.
Olivier Racoupeau Yacht Design, in collaboration with the engineers at Fountaine Pajot, have designed this new model, taking inspiration from the strengths of the other models in the range, and giving this 40-foot catamaran even more space and storage.
French yard Fountaine Pajot has also revealed the name of its new 59-foot sailing catamaran that will be launched at the 2020 Cannes Yachting Festival in September, named Samana 59. The new Samana 59 has already captured worldwide attention with its unprecedented living spaces, including a 30m2 flybridge which is the largest in its class.
