Fountaine Pajot Helia 44 Sailing Catamaran: Short Video Tour

The Fontaine Pajot Helia 44 replaces the old Orana 44 and it’s been completely redesigned. All the lines are led aft to a newly redesigned helm station, which is adjacent to an expansive lounge and sundeck.

There are a lot of available options on the Helia 44, including a refrigerator outside in the cockpit. You also have drawer refrigeration inside, and another freezer in the galley.

This model is available with a couple of different interior layouts, allowing you to choose between three or four cabins. And the owner’s version utilizes the entire starboard hull as a luxurious master suite.
