Isla 40

Isla 40 - Bareboat incl. with skipper Catamarans

Fountaine Pajot's Isla 40 was first introduced in 2021. This is the successor to the company's Lucia 40 and is destined to become a staple of charter fleets. This boat is sized just right for bareboat sailing while big enough to charter with skipper when required. Already established on the Mediterranean sailing holiday scene and sure to be increasingly available globally in short order,

11.9m, 39'
Charter Type:
Bareboat incl. with skipper
up to 9
4 double, 1 bow single

The Isla 40 measures a little more than 39 feet in length and a beamy 22 feet wide. That's considerably more area than most catamarans of her size, designed at the extremes of length to width ration that comfortably fits double berths in the hulls while large enough to perform under sail to the holiday charterer's satisfaction. 

Sailing this cat is made easy with a raised starboard helm position that gives good visibility from above the bimini, with all the winches and sail lines within easy reach. for relaxation and dining, the cockpit table is located adjacent to the galley and there is plenty of comfortable space to sit back and enjoy the journey. 

In our more popular destinations the four-cabin layout is generally the most common, with its additional single bow cabin used by a hired skipper when engaged. There is also a 3-cabin Maestro version that has a spacious master suite - available in  some locations. The interior of this boat has all the fixtures and fittings expected of a contemporary luxury catamaran, finished to the highest professional standards by the FP team.
