Fountaine Pajot unveils new flagship sailing catamaran

Replacing the Sanya 57, the Ipanema 58 is designed to combine construction innovation and design.

The catamaran’s  flybridge incorporates spacious and separate zones for relaxation and navigation. Flanked by access stairwells at port and starboard, the flybridge features a sunbathing bed, a protected helmstation, as well as lounges and tables for entertaining at sea.

The Ipanema 58s 25sqm cockpit integrates indoor and outdoor living, and comprises lounge seating and a large dining setting, plus a sheltered daybed.

Inside, the Ipanema 58 is luminous and airy courtesy of large windows throughout the saloon and cabins. The main living area is available in two configurations to suit individual preferences of each client: the Classic version features an open-plan design with the saloon set adjacent to the modern galley, while the Lounge version offers a more autonomous saloon and dining area with greater separation from the lowered galley, adjusting the accommodation layout below to four double cabins.

Clients choosing the Ipanema 58 in the Classic version can select from a five or six-cabin option according to their individual cruising requirements. The five-cabin Maestro version comprises four double cabins plus an owner’s suite.  The six-cabin version features six identical cabins that are each appointed with their own private ensuite, making it ideal for commercial use or larger cruising families.

Designed to be competitively priced, the first Ipanema 58 will be officially launched by Fountaine Pajot at the 2015 Paris Boat Show and is available for delivery to Australia, New Zealand and Asia in late 2015.
