NEW TO THE MARKET !!! BEING SOLD AS A GOING CONCERN, in Queensland 2C-4C Survey, with forward bookings, in Queensland's Whitsunday Islands.
Well maintained Four Cabin, Four Ensuite configuration. IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE.
Power Catamarans have enjoyed a meteoric rise in popularity in recent years, making them the most popular sector of the recreational boating market. And for good reason. Stability, speed, space and comfort and economy.
More twin-hulled motoryachts are popping up at boat shows and they're drawing crowds because of the space and amenities they offer. Is it any wonder they are highly sought after in the Whitsundays charter market?
The FP 44 is a collaboration between designer Pierangelo Andreani and naval architect Daniel Andreieu. The FP Cumberland 44 has included numerous ingenious ideas to what has become the standard use of space on a cat. With over 500 square feet of living space and exceptional fuel economy, she feels like a 50-foot trawler except that she can outrun storms and reach anchorages faster than any trawler possibly could. Fountaine Pajot seems to have studied the best of today's luxury motoryachts and combined them with the benefits of a catamaran and the results speak for themselves.
MV Queen Marie is powered by twin Volvo Penta 310 hp diesels. The Fountaine Pajot 44 has twin helm stations. Both the interior and exterior helms offer generous vision, are locate to starboard and both offer engine management and navigation displays.
Unlike a cruising monohull which drags a ballasted keel through the water, the powercat is a semi-planing hull, which translates to good fuel economy. With a top speed of over 20 knots and a cruise at 16 knots she will deliver a range of over 300 nautical miles and if you slow down to 8.5 knots, that range extends markedly.
