New boats 2017

2016 September 1

We run down some of the new sailboats hitting the water for 2017

Lucia 40

Fountaine Pajot has introduced the smallest boat in its line, a 40-footer with plenty of bells and whistles. The Lucia 40 is designed to feel more like a 45-footer, both inside and out. The hulls flare out above the waterline, providing more interior volume for living quarters. The berths in the aft cabins are more accessible, due to the widened hulls, plus three opening ports in each provide excellent ventilation. Details such as the aft-facing galley provide a nice pass-through to the cockpit and seating for more than a dozen people between the cockpit and saloon tables. Comfort and space to relax are the main goals with this family cruiser. LOA 38’5”; Beam 21’9”; Draft 3’11”; Displ. 19,621 lbs.; Sail area 1,022 sq. ft., www.catamarans-fountaine-pajot.com. Price: $450,000
