MY44 Named Power Boat of the Year for 2018


The MY 44 is now the winner of the Motor Boat Award for 2018 from Motor Boat & Yachting magazine! The 2018 Motor Boat Awards, one of the most important nights in the industry calendar, took place at the Rosewood Hotel in London last week.

“The winner of this category claims the prize for teaming long distance capability with a useful turn of speed and tremendous living spaces. In a booming sector, this powercat is one of the best on the market.”- Judges at Motor Boat & Yachting

With stiff competition, this award proves that the MY44 takes innovation and performance to the next level. In the powerboat arena, the attitudes of customers are changing and efficiency and comfortable cruising are beginning to occupy many people’s wish lists.  Powercats tick many boxes from the get-go, though their styling creates a few hurdles for designers. However, this is bringing them into closer focus for many boat buyers.

The Fountaine Pajot MY44 comes at a good time because anybody who doesn’t believe the powercat market is on the up needs to take a closer look at what is currently going on in the industry.

The awards were hosted by Motor Boat & Yachting’s editor, Hugo Andreae, and deputy editor, Jack Haines. A panel of five highly experienced marine journalists was responsible for sea-trialing the finalists before selecting the winning models. The international nature of the event was reflected with winners from the US, France, Italy, and the UK. Facing stiff competition, the Fountaine Pajot MY44 won the award for Passagemakers. 

The shipyard offers this model specially tailored to the needs of powerboating fast travel catamarans. In addition to her generous space, the MY44 offers a long-range, good handling, and a maximum speed of up to 25 knots.

This motor yacht catamaran has comfortable relaxation and reception spaces worthy of a second home. Savor memorable moments with family and friends on her enormous flybridge, designed with a sunbathing lounge, a galley and a real terrace or pool overlooking the sea. You will adore her saloon, a large open area with a terrace, spacious lounge and galley opening directly onto the cockpit, where you can enjoy outdoor activities all day long.
