Fountaine Pajot develops MY4.S
The French catamaran builder plans a summer launch for its new entry-level motor yacht, MY4.S, and has renamed its existing models while also upgrading the interiors.
Fountaine Pajot plans to launch the first MY4.S power catamaran in La Rochelle this summer ahead of a potential world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
With architecture by Daniel Andrieu and interior design by Pierangelo Andreani, the 36ft 1in model with a 16ft 9in beam will be the French catamaran builder’s new entry-level motor yacht. The model will succeed the MY37, which has sold over 100 units sold and been Fountaine Pajot’s best-selling powercat.
As part of a rebranding of the motor yacht range, the MY40 is now called the MY5 and the MY44 is now the MY6, with the latter pair available with a new Millésime interior. Solar panels are offered as an option on all three models.
The MY4.S – which doesn’t have a flybridge like its two bigger sisters – has a flexible aft cockpit with an adjustable aft sofa and dining table, so guests can face forward or look over the water.
There are sliding doors into the interior, which features a well-equipped galley to port, seating along the starboard side, a large sunroof and a twin-seat helm station. The foredeck has a triple sunpad or solarium, measuring almost 5sqm.
Accommodation is available in a Quatuor layout with four cabins, with each hull featuring two cabins sharing one bathroom, or the Maestro version with three cabins including a spacious 9sqm owner’s suite in the port hull. The standard propulsion is twin Yanmar 111kW 150CV engines.
A Fountaine Pajot MY40 powercat is on its way to the Philippines, while Dufour announces a partnership with Sun Hing Shipyard in Hong Kong and the sale of a new 470 to China.
