Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts’ new Summerland 40 Long Range power catamaran has been declared Boat of the Year at the prestigious 2014 Moteur Boat Awards.

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 exceptional interior space, outstanding stability, and its performance in the choppy judging conditions.

The Summerland 40 LR also won the title due to its remarkable accommodation, particularly its three designer double cabins and its decadent owner’s cabin that boasts a panoramic sea view.

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



The Summerland 40 LR will be on display by Multihull Solutions in the Asia Pacific region at the upcoming Auckland On Water Boat Show from 25-28 September and also at the Gold Coast International Marine Expo from 17-19 October.

The Summerland 40 LR starts from just AUD$798,000 and further information on the catamaran or the entire Fountaine Pajot range can be obtained by contacting Multihull Solutions on 1300 855 338 (within Australia), 0508 MULTIS (within New Zealand) +66 8 1894 1530 (within Asia), emailing info@multihullsolutions.com.au or visiting the website at Multihull Solutions.
