Fountaine Pajot expands Asia Yachting’s scope in Hong Kong
Asia Yachting now also represents Fountaine Pajot’s sailing catamarans in Hong Kong, where it’s already a dealer for the French builder’s powercats.
Fountaine Pajot Alegria 67
Asia Yachting has been appointed as the exclusive Hong Kong dealer for Fountaine Pajot Sailing Catamarans, in addition to its representation of Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts in the city. The increased scope means Asia Yachting is now representing all Fountaine Pajot sailing and power catamaran models in both Hong Kong and the Philippines.
Olivier Besson, founder and CEO of Asia Yachting, said: “We’re stoked about this expansion of partnership with Fountaine Pajot. The catamaran trend is just starting in Asia and we can foresee that it will keep on growing. The space and comfort a multihull yacht can offer are attracting more and more yacht lovers’ attention and demand.”
Fountaine Pajot Tanna 47
Asia Yachting’s first order of a Fountaine Pajot sailing catamaran is a Tanna 47 set to arrive in the summer followed by an Alegria 67 later in the year. A redesign of the Saona 47, the Tanna 47 has more space including a 40 per cent larger flybridge of 75sqft that can entertain up to 10 guests at a time, a reconfigured, U-shape galley with increased storage, and the option of 5-9sqm of solar panels.
Kevin Corfa, Head of Fountaine Pajot Asia, said: “The Fountaine Pajot team feels very positive about this strengthening of our partnership with Asia Yachting. The increasing sales of our Motor Yachts range in Hong Kong in the past years has proven Asia Yachting has the right clientele and knowledge, so we’re confident this strategic expansion will be positive for both companies.”
