There is a reason serious cruisers call Atlantic Cruising Yachts for their project. There is simply no team in North America that has commissioned more Fountaine Pajot yachts than our team. We have the benefit of feedback from literally hundreds of clients, what equipment is needed and what installations work best for given cruising environments. We’re fully committed to you having your boat ideally set up for the way you plan to use it. Whether you’re going to just use it privately, or place your yacht into Waypoints Yacht Charters through Business Yacht Ownership®, we’re there for you every step of the way. Let our experience with commissioning over 2,200 boats since 1972 work for you!

Many design possibilities including icing glass windows, in addition, to make (more)waterproof. Several panels, each rolls up. Canvas/Screening/Cushion covers — color selection
Custom Net Covers with Zip-In Pillows
Typical factory-supplied nets with open weave allow water to pass through when sailing offshore. They are functional but uncomfortable! ACY custom net covers below, made of durable Textilene. They are suitable for inshore cruising (Bahamas, Chesapeake, BVI, etc) and easily removed for offshore cruising. They are very comfortable to lie on. Closed-cell foam pillows zip on so they don’t blow away and don’t absorb moisture. Choice of colors.

- Custom configuration of solar and lithium packages available
- Integrel generator-free systems available
- Custom configurated Victron systems

We can install standard solar cells from factory, or upgraded units, locally. All include controllers. The Victron battery monitor will monitor inputs, but if you start getting more complicated with wind and/or water generators in addition, we might discuss dedicated power control and monitoring control systems as well.
