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 highly customizable interior rivals motoryachts of similar LOA, and according to the manufacturer, she is the only yacht in her class to have an option for four heads. 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.
