A new model in the Fountaine Pajot power catamaran range to meet the needs of an increasingly demanding clientele.\r\nBack in September 2022, the shipyard announced it was commencing construction of the largest cruising catamaran ever to be built by Fountaine Pajot, measuring some 80 feet (24 metres) in length and just over 36 feet (11 metres) in beam. One year on, and this superlative luxury multiyacht was leaving the Fountaine Pajot shipyard in La Rochelle before heading off to the Cannes Yachting Festival on France’s Mediterranean coast, where her inauguration afloat was eagerly awaited. Named the Thíra 80 at the event, this super catamaran attracted the interest of many visitors to the show and has convinced future buyers. This is a major project for the catamaran specialist, who has risen to the industrial challenge to offer a new large yacht with a fine design, combining innovation, luxury and comfort.\r\n\r\nDiscover the interior of this large catamaran, unveiled on 12th September at Cannes:\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/youtu.be\/oQreCpcNJwo\r\n\r\n \r\nThe arrival of a Power 80 in the Motor Yachts range to meet the expectations and demands of yachtsmen.\r\nAt a press conference held during the 2023 Cannes Yachting Festival, Fountaine Pajot announced details of its plans to offer a motor yacht version of its new 80-foot catamaran, in response to the growing popularity of the Thíra 80. This future Power 80 will feature a number of modifications to adapt to the specific needs of a clientele accustomed to large luxury yachts, both monohulls and multihulls.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nIn terms of layout and design, the Power 80 will incorporate many of the same features that have made the Thíra 80 such a success. These include the large windows in the saloon, with glazing that’s lower than usual, giving an unobstructed view over the sea when seated on the sofas on the starboard side or in the small saloon area to port.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nThe new catamaran will also feature the famous “wings” on either side of the aft cockpit, offering the possibility of two terraces overlooking the sea. Numerous storage compartments in the forward cockpit, aft cockpit and the sugarscoops will allow you to stow all your leisure gear out of the way, such as paddleboards, diving equipment or even a jet ski...\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nAs for habitability and the number of people able to live aboard, the Power 80 will offer between five and seven double cabins with en suite facilities, depending on the version, with a choice of two ultra-spacious owner’s cabins. Crew will also be well catered for, with one to three skipper’s cabins in the forepeaks and beneath the aft cockpit, depending on the version.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nFor Fountaine Pajot, the future Power 80 will be another important step in its drive to expand its range and take on the large catamaran yacht market. It makes a great opportunity to demonstrate the scope of the shipyard’s savoir-faire, with over 40 years’ experience in catamaran design.
