Quote from our U.S.V.I. base.

Hi Chris and Eric!

We are having a family sail on Being Nauti this week and are having a thought about power cats.  They are really gaining ground down here and we think maybe we need to start talking about integrating them into the fleet on St Thomas.

Sitting in The Bight on Norman Island and about 15% of the boats on mooring balls are power cats.

We want to get ahead of this market instead of playing catch up!

Let us know your thoughts.

New Fountaine Pajot power catamaran raises the bar

Article from by Kate Elkington today at 4:10 am


“Fountaine Pajot has just announced a brand new 44-foot power catamaran that sets an entirely new standard in the world blue-water cruising cat market.

Created by internationally renowned naval architects and designers Daniel Andreiu and Pierangelo Andreani, the new MY 44 features an incredible design, abundance of space and extraordinary fuel efficiency.

With its first unit set for launch in early 2017, the MY 44 promises to be the shipyard’s most successful power catamaran.

The MY 44 has an unprecedented amount of living space, including a 20m2 saloon, 12m2 flybridge, and a decadent 15m2 master suite. The model has been fitted with sleek panoramic windows throughout the catamaran, granting spectacular 360-degree views and beautiful levels of natural light.

Featuring dynamic and sporty lines, the MY 44 has semi-displacement hulls built specifically to deliver outstanding performance, fuel efficiency, and stability in all sea conditions.

There is a choice of relaxation and entertaining precincts onboard, including a massive flybridge with lounges and dining table to truly enjoy the cruising experience, a capacious forward cockpit with sun lounges and cabin access, a raised contemporary saloon, and a generous cockpit that opens from the galley and boasts the option of a fixed or hydraulic aft swimming platform.

Designed for extended cruising adventures, the MY 44 has a remarkable galley complete with full-sized refrigerator, stunning fittings and unprecedented amounts of storage.

The catamaran has a revolutionary accommodation design with an expansive 15m2 luxury master suite that affords beautiful views from its panoramic windows, and features a sea-facing island queen bed, optional wall-mounted television, ambient lighting, plus a sleek ensuite.

Friends can relax in designer comfort in the guest cabins, choosing from the 7m2 VIP cabin or a twin or double cabin set to starboard, both with exclusive ensuites and elegant fixtures.

The MY 44 has been designed to deliver extraordinary offshore performance and outstanding fuel economy. With 2000-litre fuel tanks and 700-litre water tanks, the catamaran is ideal for long-range cruising and can achieve top speeds of 30 knots with its optional IPS600 435HP engines. Additional features including hydraulic gangway and dinghy crane make the cruising experience eminently safe and easy.”
