Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts’ new Summerland 40 Long Range power catamaran has been declared Boat of the Year at the 2014 Moteur Boat Awards in Le Crouesty, France. The Summerland 40 LR won the title against a strong field of finalists in the ‘Liveable Boats’ category which comprised motor yachts ranging from 29 to 45 feet.


The Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts catamaran impressed the judges with its interior space, stability, and its performance in the choppy sea conditions.

The judges also commended on the catamaran’s sleek and contemporary interior design, autonomy, responsiveness and fuel consumption – the Summerland LR uses 40 per cent less fuel than monohulls of comparable size.
