Visitors to the 2012 Mackay Marine Festival from 23-24 June will have the exclusive opportunity to inspect the brand new version of the prestigious Fountaine Pajot Lipari 41 sailing catamaran.
The new 2012 model Lipari 41 features a spectacular new interior including luminous timber cabinetry, contemporary upholstery and the highest standard of fixtures and trims.
The Lipari 41 is one of Fountaine Pajot’s most popular cruising catamarans, made famous by its enhanced performance and design.
The catamaran has been constructed with a low centre of gravity and light displacement of 7.6T to ensure safety, stability with optimal comfort and performance in all conditions. Its two 20Hp standard engines provide a cruising speed of 7.7 knots, while the option of two larger 30Hp engines offers up to 9.5 knots if required.
Aesthetically, the Lipari 41 represents the pinnacle of European excellence with elegant lines and a revolutionary design that maximises space, storage and comfort.
The catamaran’s ergonomically designed deck provides convenient centralised handling with obstacle-free movement. Built with advanced RTM éco technology, the Lipari 41 outshines its competitors in innovation with the mast built into the deck rather than the roof for reinforced structural rigidity and ease of handling.
The Lipari 41 also features an integrated dual-seating helm station with excellent visibility and has the cockpit and saloon on the same level to help make short and long passages a cruising pleasure.
The cockpit features all-weather protection, ample seating for eight guests, a stainless steel framed dining table and open-plan entertaining facilitated by a large sliding door opening into the saloon.
Inside, the saloon and galley have been designed for spacious and relaxed living with large windows that provide outstanding natural light, ventilation and visibility. Dining for eight is comfortably accommodated with the saloon’s stylish table that also has stainless steel legs, an integrated plate stand and extraordinary under-bench storage. The adjacent chart table is also large, comfortable and practical.
The generously-equipped galley has been cleverly designed to ensure entertaining onboard is a breeze with an easy access ‘piano-hinged refrigerator’, outstanding storage and quality designer fixtures.
Each of the roomy cabins is well-ventilated with large portholes, superb visibility and an abundance of hanging and cupboard space.
The Lipari 41 is available in two versions: The Standard features four cabins with two separate bathrooms and is ideal for family and charter use. The three cabin is a true Owner’s version with an exclusive private suite in the starboard hull including a decadent queen sized bed, desk, library and beautiful ensuite with contemporary designer fixtures.
The 2012 Mackay Marine Festival will be staged at the Mackay Marina and will feature displays, demonstrations, presentations and entertainment from all sectors of the marine industry.
