Motor Yacht: sportop or flybridge?

13 October 2022


Two flagship models: the MY4.s and the MY6 will be on display at the Fort Lauderdale boat show (FLIBS) in October.

Whether you are a fan of motor yachts with a racy look or you prefer space and comfort on board, there will always be a Fountaine Pajot Motor Yacht to satisfy your desires. On the sportop design side, it’s the MY4.S you should go for, the latest Fountaine Pajot model. For a Motor Yacht with huge space on board with flybridge access, the MY6 is a worthy representative of this category. If you still can’t decide, or you’ve already decided, learn more about the characteristics of these two famed yachts which will not leave you indifferent. Come visit the MY4.S and the MY6, from 26 to 30 October, at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, in Florida.

MY4.S, the quintessential sportop motor yacht

Fountaine Pajot is the only shipyard to offer a 37-foot model in this category of multi-hull. To go further into the pleasure of living on board, Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts has also redesigned the inside and outside spaces, optimised the storage, revamped the rear cockpit and the saloon and re-designed the kitchen area, all for more room. With its imposing size and its great comfort, it ultimately offers a very appreciable livability.

The choice not to use a flybridge was in particular dictated by the yard’s desire to design a very sailable Motor Yacht. This is a quality which the public has recognised, since the MY4.S was voted “Multihull of the Year” in 2022 by Multicoques Magazine. The MY4.S is ideal for owners who want to go exploring new territories, new horizons, while being able to rely on a boat with character which offers fine sensations. By comparing the MY4.S with monohulls, Fountaine Pajot can pride themselves on having a model which has equivalent sailing performance, with its energy saving which can make the difference to Motor Yachts fans.


MY6, a multi award-winning flybridge motor yacht

Above all, Fountaine Pajot had the ambition of designing an elegant, efficient boat, with resolutely modern lines, a Motor Yacht capable of charming the demanding Motor Yachts clientele.

To achieve it, the shipyard called on Pierangelo Andreani, an Italian designer renowned in the automotive and nautical field who took on the interior and exterior design.

The MY6, like the entire Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts range, is enjoyable in all circumstances with exceptional spaces: the cockpit and the main cabin, with a panoramic view even when seated, impress at first sight. The bright owner’s suite in the port hull offers spaces which leave nothing to envy in much larger monohulls, and the two starboard “guest” cabins are real bedrooms. The huge flybridge, with helm station, sunbathing area, kitchen, table and bench, can be enjoyed in all circumstances thanks to the inherent stability of the boat. Every area of the boat is designed for the pleasure of living on board.

The MY6‘s qualities need no more demonstration thanks to its many awards including: the Asia Boating Awards (2017), the Motor Boat Awards (2018), and European Power Boat of the Year (2018). To find equivalent spaces, you would have to go for a 65-foot monohull, but lose the stability
