Since 1976, the Fountaine Pajot shipyard in France has been producing world-class yachts for discriminating boaters around the globe. Founded in 1976 by Jean-François Fountaine, Yves Pajot and Daniel Givon, the shipyard introduced its first sailing catamaran in 1983 and started building motor yachts in 1998. Fountaine Pajot also builds Taiti Day Charter catamarans exclusively for the charter market.
Since its inception, Fountain Pajot has earned an international reputation for its commitment to innovation and preserving the environment. The company strives to reduce the marine footprint of its catamarans by using renewable energy sources. Its Eco-Cruising and Smart Cruising concepts integrate renewable energy sources (solar panels, AGM battery, low consumption fresh-water maker, visual control of consumption, etc.) to optimize performance and reduce the environmental impact of its boats.
Fountaine Pajot's sailing catamarans range from 40 to 67 feet in length. With their sleek lines and elegance, they offer boaters a premium level of luxury and comfort. Using cutting-edge innovative construction techniques and state-of-the-art technology, including RTM injection, Fountaine Pajot boats deliver both durability and performance. They feature the spaciousness and openness one expects from a catamaran, including an open galley, spacious salon leading to the cockpit and wide flybridge. All Fountaine Pajot power cats are fitted IPS propulsion, which allows them to move laterally, diagonally or pivot from a stationary position with a single press of the joystick.
The company also builds boats tailored to the individual requirements of charter operators. As such, its Taiti Day Charter catamarans are now in high demand from companies all over the world.
In recognition of Fountaine Pajot’s dedication to excellence and innovation, the company has earned ISO 9001 V2000 certification for its entire line of catamarans.
