Favorite boats? The Jeanneau 54

I recently returned from the Jeanneau dealer meeting where I reviewed the new Jeanneau 54 being introduced to the U.S. market at the recent Annapolis Boat Show. This boat represents the beginning of a new revolution. Every dealer in the country, and everyone who has seen her has fallen in love with her. I don’t mean they just like it, I mean they’ve fallen head over heels, madly passionately in love with this boat and the extraordinary design features.

A new approach to catamarans… The Lucia 40 from Fountaine Pajot

So-called owner’s versions of most popular catamarans have become pretty cookie cutter… Here’s an all new approach.

When Fountaine Pajot came out with the innovative Helia 44 a few years ago, they struck a cord. They created a light, bright boat with several social areas and exceptional live-aboard room. This was a huge boat and priced a bit out of many folks budget.

Along comes the Lucia 40 introduced in America In February 2016. What’s innovative is that FP started with a big volume hull and to take advantage of this, they focused on the back end of the boat. Offering huge owner’s cabins with island beds in both aft cabins, and a cockpit that rivals that of the successful Helia 44.  See preview video/photo shoot in the Bahamas here

I am just back from a quick trip to Vendee’, France for a visit to the Jeanneau 64 production line and  a sail with designer Andrew Winch on his personal Jeanneau 64 “Polar Bear”.  When the designer of a boat steps up to the plate and buys one for himself, you know he has hit the mark.  This was Andrew’s first sail on his new boat, so it was a very exciting time for him.

We motored silently out into the Bay of Biscay from the yachting port of Les Sables d’Olonne, into 10-15 knots of breeze with gentle swells rolling under the keel.  The boat sailed beautifully with her new in-boom furling mainsail, providing an outstanding fully shaped SDL main.  We flew the Code 1 on the way back in and saw over 8 knots in only 10 knots of breeze which I thought was very impressive.Continue Reading…
