Lavezzi, Lipari, Luci and now: Isla. The two-hull experts from Fountaine Pajot in Aigrefeuille have again a new entry-level model with a hull length of twelve meters at the start. The first ship of the new type Isl40 is evidently well advanced in the construction phase, and the world premiere is planned for the Yachting Festival in Cannes (8-13 September).

The double hull of the new Fountaine Pajot shows the same technical data as its predecessor Luci40 (test in YACHT 16/2016), but still comes from newly developed designs. The jump in the deck will be even more pronounced, the stern a little wider. And the two bows are shaped differently with a vertical stem in a modern look. On deck, the tried and tested concept with the laterally raised steering position and direct access to the cabin roof remains. However, there will now be a large sun lounger with inlay cushions on the foredeck.

The more conventional sail plan also remains unchanged. That means: The rig is still quite far forward, and the battened mainsail with the wide flared top is large and powerful in comparison. The Kat is still delivered with an overlapping genu as standard, a self-tacking jib is meanwhile also not possible as an option. The comparatively high sail load rating of 4.6 promises sporting potential. The previous model, the Luci40, was already able to convince with its good sailing performance in the test, with a similar ratio of weight to sail area.

The bright surfaces and the many windows create an open, bright and friendly living atmosphere

While the modifications of the new Isl40 compared to the Luci40 remain manageable, the shipyard has put even more hand in the design of the interior. The interior design is now much more open and modern, with light surfaces and stronger color contrasts. There are also adjustments to the layouts. For example, Fountaine Pajot completely dispensed with navigation in the saloon for the new ship, instead made the sofa larger and created additional space for even more storage space. The previously rather bulky saloon table has given way to a small coffee table - this in order to save space and on the assumption that meals are eaten outside at the large table in the completely covered cockpit.

The Isl40 is available in three-cabin (Maestro) or four-cabin (Quatour) versions. Optionally, the hulls can then be expanded either with a large bathroom with shower compartment for use from both cabins or with their own, smaller toilet rooms. It is also possible to have one or two skipper's cabins in the forepeak instead of the large storage spaces.

The prices for the new Isl40 should be based on the predecessor model Luci40 with few changes. The base price for the market launch is 355,400 euros, including 19% VAT.
