Fountaine Pajot MY6 in Hong Kong
Asia Yachting has secured two sales of the Fountaine Pajot MY6 powercat to owners in Hong Kong soon after the arrival of a new unit to the city earlier this year.
The first unit to arrive was sold by broker Justin Luk, while the second was sold by Asia Yachting CEO Olivier Besson and broker Vinci Cheung and is expected to arrive in the city in the third quarter of the year.
Foredeck and flybridge of the MY6
Asia Yachting, which represents Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts in Hong Kong, is also anticipating the arrival of another MY6 in 2023 as well as Asia’s first Power 67, the builder’s flagship powercat.
“We’re happy with these sales as they reflect a growing interest in power catamarans around including here in Asia,” Besson said. “Fountaine Pajot has been expanding and upgrading its range of motor yachts and this has been appreciated by clients and prospects. There’s a growing momentum for powercats in the region and we’ll be announcing more units coming including another Asia first.”
Aft cockpit and swim platform
The MY6 is equipped with the Volvo Penta IPS500 or IPS650 system, benefiting from joystick control, and has helm stations in the saloon and on the flybridge. The layout includes a full-beam aft galley and a large saloon on the main deck, while accommodation options include an owner’s suite occupying the port hull and two en-suite double cabins to starboard.
The 15m model was known as the MY44 before it was rebranded as MY6, with the MY40 changed to MY5. Asia Yachting also sold a new MY5 that arrived in Hong Kong last year and a pre-owned unit of the same model.
New Millesime interior on the MY6
Designed by Pierangelo Andreani, both flybridge models have also had interior upgrades and are part of Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts’ new-look range along with the MY4.S cruiser.
