NEW 40FT SAILING CATAMARAN ISLA 40 – FOUNTAINE PAJOT

Fountaine Pajot has just announced the release of a new entry-level sailing catamaran setting a new benchmark for innovation and productivity during the industry’s Covid-19 lockdown conditions.

The shipyard has announced the new Isla 40 will replace the successful Lucia 40 sailing catamaran and will be available from early 2021.

This impressive sailing catamaran reflects the hallmarks of the shipyard’s prestigious Flagship range and is the new reference for multihulls in the 40-foot range being significantly larger than its predecessor, the Lucia 40.

The 12m Isla 40 perfectly embodies the spirit and innovative design of Fountaine Pajot and is distinguished by elegant and invigorating lines that are recognisable the world over.

The exceptional catamaran features inverted bows and an innovative saloon where the chart table is accessible from the entrance and gives way to a relaxing daybed. Her outstanding 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.
