A New Page in the Story of Fountaine Pajot

Fountain Pajot Motoryachts

May 24, 2016

The story of Fountaine Pajot began in 1976 and continues today. Inspired by two visionary men: Jean-François Fountaine and Yves Pajot, internationally famous ocean racers, the Fountaine Pajot brand was a forerunner in the design of polyester cruising catamarans and it quickly became an international reference. The Fountaine Pajot brand is now entering a new chapter of its story: becoming a legend.

Today Fountaine Pajot is pleased to announce that to facilitate this new chapter in the brand’s history, the Fountaine Pajot brand has decided to work with three distinct visual identities, each with their own function, narrative and area of expression to explore:

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches.

Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
