40 YEARS OF INNOVATION, ADVENTURE AND PASSION
When Jean François Fountaine founded the Fountaine Pajot shipyard in 1976, he brought his years of competitive sailing as Olympian to the drawing board. Little would he know then that his ideas and name would evolve to become synonymous in the world of luxury yachting and cruising with the very best sailing and power catamarans in the world.
From the very start, yachting enthusiasts noticed that there was something good afoot when early prototypes starting winning important regattas even prior to going into full-scale production. Innovation drove the brand from its earliest origins. Forty years later, Fountaine Pajot has developed 30 different models of catamarans and has sold over 2,500 luxury yachts, under sail or power, to owners all over the world.
Innovation remained a constant theme, with the latest models being built with ultra-modern hull processing in La Rochelle, France, and eco-friendly prototypes bringing green consciousness into the world of marine sport. Each model is available in an “Eco Concept” version, i.e., positive energy boats that incorporate renewable energy sources and strongly reduce the ecological footprint of these power catamarans.
For a reliable and exhilirating cruising or charter experience, few can compete with what this shipyard produces.
