Our teams comprise the industry’s most highly skilled and specialised experts in the catamaran sailboat manufacturer’s industry, and their commitment to excellence ensures each Fountaine Pajot model represents superior quality, timeless design, optimal safety and technological innovation.

The superior quality of manufacturing employed on every Fountaine Pajot catamaran is the result of a controlled balance between advanced industrial processes and exquisite craftsmanship. A number of specialised internal divisions in the Shipyard are integral in the construction of each multihull, including composites, assembly, cabinetwork, equipment, electrical, plumbing, motors, and launching. We also collaborate with industry-leading experts and a network of reliable subcontractors who provide state-of-the art products and services, including upholstery, deck hardware and stainless steel parts, as well as sails, engines and on-board electronics.

Innovation and engineering

Dedication to excellence

Fountaine Pajot’s design office is divided into two specialist research teams. The first, based at our Aigrefeuille production centre, oversees the design and manufacture of Fountaine Pajot’s mid-size range. The second team, based at our La Rochelle production centre, exclusively manages our prestigious Flagship range of catamarans over fifty feet.

Our teams comprise the industry’s most highly skilled and specialised experts in the yacht manufacturer’s industry, and their commitment to excellence ensures each Fountaine Pajot multihull yacht represents superior quality, timeless design, optimal safety and technological innovation.

Composites

Expert in injection techniques

Fountaine Pajot is a world leader in the use of resin transfer injection and infusion techniques. Every component of our sail and power catamaran range, from bulkheads and decks to flybridge and hulls, is made of composite materials, and our cutting edge construction technologies are instrumental in reducing weight while delivering exceptional strong, safe and environmentally friendly multihulls.

Our state-of-the-art technologies are fully compliant with the industry’s rigorous environmental regulations and standards, and are another example of Fountaine Pajot’s commitment to eco-friendly operation.

Rigging / Sailing

The relationships we have established with the industry’s most reputable suppliers also means that the rigging and sail equipment on our entire range are optimised for quality, safety and performance. These suppliers specialise in multihulls and are mutually passionate about sailing and offshore racing, and our partnerships are a guarantee of performance, accessibility and simplicity for all our sailing catamarans and motor yachts.  For boats without a flybridge, our designers have implemented designs to ensure boom accessibility is safe, easy and ergonomic.
