REVIEWS Fountaine Pajot Victoria 67
Shipyard FOUNTAINE PAJOT
The flybridge catamaran according to Fountaine Pajot
Fountaine Pajot launches the Victoria 67' catamaran, its very first catamaran topped with a flydeck. This innovation represents a sharp break with the historical position of the manufacturer, who never designed this architecture on catamarans under 65'. We spent 2 days on board, after the 2013 Grand Pavois boat show, to share with you our first sensations.
Fountaine Pajot conquering the multi-yacht
With the Sanya 57 and the Helia 44 catamarans, the Charente-based builder opened a new chapter in its industrial history, asserting an aggressive technical and design move that visitors to these models had detected since 2011. It is not strictly speaking a break with the adventure which has continued since the advent of the Louisiane catamaran in 1983, but rather a leap forward in quality, supported by reading about the expectations of the international clientele which represents nearly 80% of their sales! This little internal revolution is also supported by a company strategy, introduced several years ago, as much from the technical point of view (innovations in infusion and injection) as the organizational, with a view to producing bigger boats. The Aigrefeuilles site is a superb installation, but its geographic position implies road transport to the sea, and limits the size to 45’. At the end of the 90s, the group therefore set itself up in La Rochelle, in the former SCAN seaplane factory, and diversified its activity with the Iris catamarans (fast modular ferries). The two huge 2500m² cells with direct access to the sea have allowed Fountaine-Pajot to test the big multihull market (Eleuthera 60’ and Galathea 65’), before the more frontal attack represented by the Victoria 67 catamaran.
