Fountaine Pajot Yachts was founded in 1976 by Jean Francois Fountaine, a well-known Olympic sailor. The boatyard launched its first sailing catamaran in 1983 and its first power cruising catamaran in 1998. Today, the French company is based in La Rochelle and continues to build both power and sailing cruising multihulls.
New models of sailing cats are offered from 36-67 feet and there are three flybridge power cat models including 40, 47 and 55 footers. ISO 9002 certified, Fountaine Pajot builds its boats using vacuum resin infusion to create strong, lightweight boats with a manufacturing process that is less disruptive to the environment. Over 2100 Fountaine Pajot cats have been launched over three decades and they can be found sailing with private owners and in charter companies worldwide.
