The galley includes an Eno 3 burner propane (US specs) stove with oven and a Isotherm 12volt, 4.6 cubic feet refrigerator with freezer compartment. Ample galley storage with a sealed trash bin under the counter. There is a large 6 person U shaped settee with a dinette forward in the salon, the settee spans the width of the salon forward and is well lighted by the three large forward and one ceiling windows.

Forward to port is the ample head with shower which is a single fiberglass unit very easy to keep clean. The large windows forward, Port and Starboard in the saloon make for an airy, open feeling.

This is a turnkey offshore rated catamaran with all required maintenance and upkeep completed. She is ready to sail anywhere in the world.

We purchased this catamaran in 2011. The previous owner purchased it from the manufacturer and had it shipped to the Caribbean French isles and then he sailed her to the Tampa Bay area. My wife and I have enjoyed many sailings with and without our friends. We also did some upgrades. All the electronics were updated. We installed a new Bimini and Helm electronics cover. It has a 9' dinghy with 4 HP Mercury outboard. It comes with a 3.5 Kw 110 volt generator and 2 9000btu a/c units. Auto pilot, new updated controls.

Unlike the competition, she is all infusion-composite built, resulting in one of the strongest and stiffest structures available in a catamaran today. Innovative features such as same level cockpit and saloon, huge double sliding entrance doors, a new-bright, high-gloss sycamore interior make her an ideal liveaboard cruiser. High bridgedecks, top quality fittings and drag reducing hulls make this a true blue water boat. The all composite construction, ergonomic, yet smartly styled interior and overhanging coachroof are all trademarks of the beautiful range of Fountaine Pajot catamarans, which can be found in every corner of the globe.

An excellent worldwide dealer network, an unsurpassed 25 years of experience by her French builders and an unbeatable value make this one of the last great buys around for sailors looking for a new and proven liveaboard cruiser.
