Summerland 40 LR – Boat Review by www.TradeBoats.com.au
Power cats like the Fountaine Pajot Summerland 40 are becoming the first choice for people who want to go easy on fuel consumption and still get to places in the shortest possible time.
The weather on the day of our boat review is stunning. We are cruising along very comfortably aboard the Fountaine Pajot Summerland 40 to our destination, just off the Gold Coast, where North and South Stradbroke Islands meet.
The channel between allows the Pacific Ocean to fill the lower portion of the Moreton Bay islands with each tide. Mellow, clear waters contrast against white sand dunes. Overhead the skies are blue and the sound of the waves breaking on the distant bar makes for a relaxing place to get to know this boat.
Modern construction techniques, with vacuum infusion, make powercats like the Fountaine Pajot Summerland 40 stronger and lighter, allowing them to achieve mile-eating boat speeds with smaller more fuel-efficient engines.
