Power catamaran cruisers have a lot of perks: gobs of space, good efficiency, and excellent stability. Fortunately, Fountaine Pajot knows exactly how to take advantage of these traits. Join reviewer Alex Smith for a look at their latest power catamaran, the 37, which he found at the Cannes boat show.


As Alex points out, even though this is a much smaller model, the 37 maintains the single-level deck that impressed us on the Fountaine Pajot Cumberland 47 LC. It also takes advantage of all that catamaran beam, with far more interior volume than a monohull of equal length would have.

As you can see from this picture of the Cumberland 47, the 37 foot Fountaine Pajot has a very similar look to its larger siblings.

Another common trait: multiple layouts are available, allowing you to semi-customize the boat's interior. Visit Fountaine Pajot power catamaran listings, to see what's out there.
