Fountaine Pajot MY 68

A catamaran with enough range, comfortable spacious volumes and good fuel ef ciency to cross the Atlantic (2,000 nm). This is the challenge that Fountain Pajot has proposed to Berret Racoupeau’s designers for the new MY 68: the offcial presentation will be at the Miami International Boat Show 2020. 19.49 meters long and 9.84 meters wide, the new cat will feature a displacement of 50 tons and will be powered by twin Volvo D4 300hp engines (D6 415hp engines are optional). In order to ensure the best possible range, tanks will have a fuel capacity of 4,000 litres. According to the shipyard, the cat will touch a top speed of 21 knots and a cruising speed of 14- 15 (with a fuel consumption of 60 l/h). Highly comfortable, the boat will also have a tender lift and a crane for the jet ski. The “Maestro” version will accommodate a master cabin, a double guest cabin and a fore berth; the “Charter” version will feature three double cabins and a fore berth.
