“In all Fountaine Pajot catamarans the cabins are located in the hulls, completely isolated and independent with high ceilings and wide passageways. The cabins are designed as peaceful retreats. Enjoying excellent natural light and ventilation, all cabin versions feature double beds, private suites, and large windows affording outstanding views.
