Fountaine Pajot’s new entry-level sailing catamaran sets a new benchmark for innovation and productivity during the industry’s Covid-19 lockdown conditions. Replacing the successful Lucia 40 sailing catamaran, the new Isla 40 will be available from early 2021.

The 12m Isla 40 is distinguished by lines that are recognisable the world over. Featuring inverted bows and an innovative saloon layout, her outstanding performance is complemented by optimal liveability with the option of three or four double cabins, plus a skipper’s cabin if required.

Fountaine Pajot also revealed the name of a new 59-foot sailing catamaran scheduled for launch at the 2020 Cannes Yachting Festival in September. Unprecedented living spaces include a 30m2 flybridge which is the largest in its class, and a 27.5m2 cockpit, decadent sun-lovers’ foredeck, expansive cabins and an epicurean galley that opens onto the saloon.
