The new and improved Fountaine Pajot Hélia 44 is set to turn heads when it is unveiled by Multihull Solutions at the 2014 Sydney International Boat Show.

As Fountaine Pajot’s most successful sailing catamaran model in the shipyard’s history, the Hélia 44 has been recently revised to feature a sparkling new interior aesthetic.

The catamaran now features luminous new timber finishes, a lighter and more contemporary colour scheme, and slightly rounded edging on all cabinetry to create an even more ambient interior.

The Hélia 44 has proven to be the world’s best value 44-foot sailing catamaran over the past two years and has impressed international critics and buyers with its exceptional offshore performance, unparalleled comfort and stylish design. Multihull Solutions sold three Hélia 44 catamarans at the recent Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, confirming the model’s appeal to the Australasian market.

With its name derived from the Greek term for ‘ray of light’, the Hélia 44 has clerestory windows that bathe the expansive living areas in natural light, while the cabins are also fitted with generous windows to afford unprecedented views. Huge volumes in the saloon and accommodation areas are complemented by the epitome of elegance in contemporary design. The catamaran is available in two layouts: a three-cabin Owners version and a standard four-cabin version.


The newly revised Hélia 44 will be available to buyers at the Sydney International Boat Show, where Multihull Solutions has only one more Hélia 44 available at a special introductory price, starting at just $798,000 and representing a saving of five per cent on the retail price.

Multihull Solutions is also offering a syndicate option that is ideal for those with limited time to spend sailing but who wish to own their own boat. The syndicate offers 1/12 shares in a fully equipped 2015 Hélia 44 that will be based on Hamilton Island from early 2015.

With shares available from just AUD$90,000, the syndicate provides owners with a minimum usage of four weeks per year over a minimum three-year term, representing more than $85,000 in savings compared to equivalent charter fees.

Multihull Solutions will also be launching the spectacular new Privilège 615 from their Darling Harbour marina stand at the Sydney International Boat Show, plus the popular Fountaine Pajot Lipari 41.

Inspections of the Hélia 44, Privilège 615 and Lipari 41 Evolution at the Sydney International Boat Show can be arranged by emailing Rachel at Multihull Solutions on rachel@multihullsolutions.com.au. Further information on the Hélia 44 or the Whitsunday syndicate can be obtained at Multihull Solutions or by calling 1300 855 338 (within Australia), 0508 MULTIS (within New Zealand), or +66 8 1894 1530 (within Asia).
