New 40-footer to be uveiled at the Nautic boat show in Paris

Following the debut ofthe  Ipanema 58 at the boat show in Cannes, French catamaran builder Fountaine Pajot says two new models will make their debut at the Nautic show in Paris, including a 40- and 44-footer. The event in Paris runs from 5-12 December.

The builder hasn’t disclosed the name of the new 40ft, but claims she has all the strenghts, the new lines and the performances that have broughtto her elder sisters, the helia 44, Saba 50 and now the Ipanema 58.

Following Olivier Raccoupeau plans, the boat offers elegant and contemporary lines, an optimization of volumes with generous living spaces — boat boasts an extra 10.2 m2 of glazing in the saloon— as well as greater light throughout. She will be produced in 2016 with 129.39 square feet cockpit, and a 32.3 square feet lounge space.
