Fountaine Pajot unveils prestigious new Flagship sailing catamaran

Ipan exterior1blogFountaine Pajot continues its dominance of the world’s cruising catamaran market with the announcement of a new Flagship model, the Ipanema 58.

Replacing the successful Sanya 57, the Ipanema 58 is a spectacular combination of construction innovation and design brilliance, offering an astonishing amount of interior and exterior living space.

The catamaran’s remarkable flybridge shatters the benchmarks set by industry competitors, with its design incorporating spacious and separate zones for relaxation and navigation. Conveniently flanked by access stairwells at port and starboard, the flybridge features a decadent sunbathing bed, a protected helmstation, as well as lounges and tables for entertaining at sea.

The Ipanema 58’s expansive 25sqm cockpit seamlessly integrates indoor and outdoor living, and comprises an abundance of lounge seating, an expansive dining setting, plus a sheltered daybed ideal for unwinding with a book.

The foredeck is another enviable retreat with its dual relaxation stations that promise tranquillity and superb vistas.

Inside, the Ipanema 58 is luminous and airy courtesy of large windows throughout the saloon and cabins. The main living area is available in two configurations to suit the individual preferences of each client: the Classic version features an open-plan design with the saloon set adjacent to the state-of-the-art galley, while the Lounge version offers a more autonomous saloon and dining area with greater separation from the lowered galley, adjusting the accommodation layout below to four double cabins.

Clients choosing the Ipanema 58 in the Classic version can select from a five or six-cabin option according to their individual cruising requirements. The five-cabin Maestro version comprises four beautiful double cabins plus an exceptional Owner’s suite that redefines the concept of contemporary luxury with its incredible space, light and fixtures. The six-cabin version features six identical cabins that are each superbly appointed and boast their own private ensuite, making it perfect for commercial use or larger cruising families.

The Ipanema 58 has been designed with capacious storage volumes for extended cruising and will deliver the outstanding offshore performance for which Fountaine Pajot’s range is renowned.

Competitively priced, the first Ipanema 58 will be officially launched by Fountaine Pajot at the 2015 Paris Boat Show and is available for delivery to Australia, New Zealand and Asia in late 2015.
