Fountaine Pajot MY6 shows in Hong Kong
The Fountaine Pajot MY6 open days had a wet start, but guests followed up in good numbers on the following three days at Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club.
Asia Yachting said it was delighted with the turnout at the first Hong Kong viewing of the Fountaine Pajot MY6 at Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club. Although the city’s first typhoon of the year wrote off the Saturday, viewings were held on the following three days, with good numbers visiting the popular power catamaran, formerly known as the MY44.
“We are happy that the typhoon did not ruin the mood of powercat lovers,” said Olivier Besson, CEO and founder of Asia Yachting, which represents Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts in Hong Kong. “It has been quite a while since our last boat show because of the pandemic, so it’s great to see the smiles of our guests again.”
It was Asia Yachting’s first event for several months due to the pandemic and particularly a strong Omicron-led wave at the start of the year. Guests were happy to inspect a model that’s among Fountaine Pajot four-strong range of powercats including the new MY4.S, MY5 (formerly MY40) and flagship Power 67.
Designed by Pierangelo Andreani, the MY6 has a length of 44ft and a beam of almost 22ft, and now features a new Millesime interior. The yacht features a large saloon, well equipped galley and upper and lower driving stations. Accommodation includes an impressive owner’s suite on the port side, two VIP cabins to starboard and an optional forward cabin.
“The guests were especially excited about the volume of the aft cockpit and the 360-degree view of the flybridge, as they provide great spaces for social events,” Besson said.
“The next hull of the Fountaine Pajot MY6 is due to arrive in summer 2023, so it’s worth looking ahead if you want to get your hands on one. The first flagship Power 67 power catamaran in Asia will also arrive next summer, so multihull lovers in Asia should keep their eyes peeled in the coming year.”
