Fountaine-Pajot 47

Celebrating 40 years in production, Fountaine Pajot has another new catamaran this year, scheduled for launch in April. The Fountaine Pajot 47 is available in two layouts, a three-cabin owner’s version with an exceptionally large en suite or a five-cabin option for charter, allowing for a crew and four guest cabins. On deck, there is plenty of room to spread out, whether on the extended aft platform, the expansive cockpit, or on the forward sun lounger. The lounge deck, adjacent to the helm station, is another spot from which to experience all this boat has to offer.
