Fountaine Pajot has just announced the release of a new entry-level sailing catamaran setting a new benchmark for innovation and productivity during the industry's Covid-19 lockdown conditions.

The shipyard has announced the new Isla 40 will replace the successful Lucia 40 sailing catamaran and will be available from early 2021.

This compact sailing catamaran reflects the hallmarks of the shipyard's prestigious Flagship range and is the new reference for multihulls in this size range.

The 12m Isla 40 perfectly embodies the spirit and innovative design of Fountaine Pajot and is distinguished by elegant and invigorating lines that are recognisable the world over.

The exceptional catamaran features inverted bows and an innovative saloon where the chart table is accessible from the entrance and gives way to a relaxing daybed. Her outstanding performance is complemented by optimal liveability with the option of three or four double cabins plus the possibility of a skipper's cabin if required.

Fountaine Pajot has also revealed the name of its new 59-foot sailing catamaran that will be launched at the 2020 Cannes Yachting Festival in September. The new Samana 59 has already captured worldwide attention with its unprecedented living spaces, including a 30m2 flybridge which is the largest in its class.

The Samana 59 also features a 27.5m2 cockpit, decadent foredeck with modular sunbathing stations, expansive cabins and an epicurean galley that opens onto the saloon.

Multihull Solutions is the exclusive Asia Pacific importer and distributor of Fountaine Pajot catamarans, and further information can be obtained by contacting tollfree (within Australia) 1800 855 338 or +61 (0) 7 5452 5164, emailing or visiting www.multihullsolutions.com.au.
