Fountaine Pajot 40 Lucia

For whatever reason, we don’t tend to see too many sailing catamarans in the Pacific Northwest. Perhaps relaxing on the forward trampoline gets a little wet and cold this time of year? Regardless, the Fountaine Pajot Lucia 40 is a French-made luxury yacht that’s making a splash at the Seattle Boat Show, and we had to get the details.

The Lucia 40’s emphasis is on comfort, comfort, and comfort. This beamy yacht features a gigantic covered cockpit that leads into the luminous cabin via a pair of double doors. The cockpit features swimming access aft, generous seating, and a wet bar. The covered, raised helm is starboard and accessible from the cockpit, and a helm is also found inside. Like any good catamaran, there is plenty of deck space forward to lounge and socialize.

The “owner’s suite” features cathedral-like head space with plenty of room and light from the portals. The walk-around berth is also a plus.
