Fountaine Pajot Launches New Lipari 41 Catamaran

Fountaine Pajot has just launched the stunning new Lipari 41, a world class cruising multihull that shatters the benchmarks set by its peers.

From the yard of the world's leader in cruising catamarans, the Lipari 41 replaces the immensely popular Lavezzi 40 and brings with it enhanced performance and design.

The catamaran has been constructed with a low centre of gravity and light displacement of 7.6T to ensure safety, stability with optimal comfort and performance in all conditions. Its two 20Hp standard engines provide a cruising speed of 7.7 knots, while the option of two larger 30Hp engines offers up to 9.5 knots if required.

Aesthetically, the Lipari 41 represents the pinnacle of European excellence with elegant lines and a revolutionary design that maximises space, storage and comfort.

The catamaran's ergonomically designed deck provides convenient centralised handling with obstacle-free movement. Built with advanced RTM éco technology, the Lipari 41 outshines its competitors in innovation with the mast built into the deck rather than the roof for reinforced structural rigidity and ease of handling.

The Lipari 41 also features an integrated dual-seating helm station with excellent visibility and has the cockpit and saloon on the same level to help make short and long passages a cruising pleasure.

The cockpit features all-weather protection, ample seating for eight guests, a stainless steel framed dining table and open-plan entertaining facilitated by a large sliding door opening into the saloon.

Inside, the saloon and galley have been designed for spacious and relaxed living with large windows that provide outstanding natural light, ventilation and visibility, beautiful timber cabinetry and the highest standard of fixtures, trims and upholstery. Dining for eight is comfortably accommodated with the saloon's stylish table that also has stainless steel legs, an integrated plate stand and extraordinary under-bench storage. The adjacent chart table is also large, comfortable and practical.

The generously-equipped galley has been cleverly designed to ensure entertaining onboard is a breeze with an easy access ‘piano-hinged refrigerator', outstanding storage and quality designer fixtures.

Each of the roomy cabins is well-ventilated with large portholes, superb visibility and an abundance of hanging and cupboard space.

The Lipari 41 is available in two versions: The Quatuor features four cabins with two separate bathrooms and is ideal for family and charter use. The Maestro is a true Owner's version with an exclusive private suite in the starboard hull including a decadent queen sized bed, desk, library and beautiful ensuite with contemporary designer fixtures.

Fountaine Pajot is the world leader in cruising catamarans and the Lipari 41 is the latest addition to its sail range, which also includes the Mahe 36, Orana 44, Salina 48, Eleuthera 60 and the new Galathea 65, which is now available for sea trials and delivery. The company's Trawler range comprises the Highland 35 Pilot, the new Summerland 40, the Cumberland 46 and the new Queensland 55.

Priced from AUD$599,000, the Lipari 41 will be on display for the exclusive Australasian launch at the Mandurah Boat Show in Western Australia from 9-11 October.
