The Best Selling 40' Catamaran Just Got Better!
One Of The First Available Isla In The USA!
The Isla's predecessor the Lucia 40 has been the hottest cat in the 40' market. To stay on top of that market FP is now introducing the Isla 40. This new cat has the sporty reverse bows and a whole new interior that brightens up the salon with white Corian, much more counter space, more storage, a new indoor chaise lounge and stylish rounded corners on the furniture.
As with many of the Fountaine Pajot models demand for the Isla 40 has pushed availability out until September 2021. However Advantage Yacht Sales has two pre-ordered slots left – one available in February 2021 - catch the rest of the winter season in the Caribbean or have your cat in plenty of time for next season in the northeast. Our next Isla after that will be ready in July 2021. For showing purposes until the Isla gets here we have Lucia 40s available at our Newburyport, MA and Newport, RI locations. Our first sold Isla 40 will be available for showing or charter in the Virgin Islands this winter.
Like the Lucia the Isla is the best looking cat in her class and of course she carries the acknowledged FP performance DNA. The layout is well thought out. She is comfortable and she is fast! We have had great success with Lucia 40s both in terms of private use and in our North/South Charter Business program in Newport, RI and the BVI/USVI.
Wish your Fountaine Pajot could pay for itself? It can, with our smart and incredibly flexible charter income programs. Your boat can generate significant income with our established partners in captained charter, bareboat charter, fractional sailing club, or sailing school. Unlike churn-and-burn charter programs, you have complete control over the amount of sailing time you enjoy. Plus, our unique “North/South” program allows you to use your boat in New England in the summer and in the Caribbean in the winter. You will appreciate year-round sailing opportunities and a healthy income, plus significant tax advantages. We will be glad to supply details on any of these programs.
The Isla 40 is the newest of the new generation Fountaine Pajot models that have vaulted FP to one of the top two catamaran brands in the world. Check out some of her features:

Acknowledged as the performance leader of the big three catamaran manufacturers, Fountaine Pajot delivers a high quality build, a smart layout and noticeably more speed to make her the most comfortable and the most exciting cruising cat in the world. The novelty and public interest in a Fountaine Pajot catamaran at your docks is just the beginning. The memorable sailing and destination experiences will be the reward.
Though cruising catamarans may not offer the shocking speeds of the America’s Cup they are of the same pedigree – faster and more exciting to sail than their monohull counterparts. They have changed sailing to a more modern, technology driven sport. They are the perfect answer for the cruising sailor who seeks “no heel” stability, a large comfortable entertainment platform and significantly more speed thrown in for good measure.
The Fountaine Pajot line of catamarans 40’ – 67’ has built a reputation for performance and style. The FP40 performance characteristics come from a strong but much lighter weight hull utilizing infusion technology and composite bulkheads. She has a significantly higher bridge deck clearance, as much as 30% higher reducing wave slapping. A lower helm station enabling a lower boom yields a lower center of gravity improving both speed and stability. As to style her superior design is evident to the beholder. Her lines are graceful and sweeping, not abrupt and vertical. With the salon on the same level as the cockpit there is no climbing down into the “dungeon” as in monohulls. Guests will be together with the helmspeople whether in the salon, or in the huge cockpit. Stepping into the interior feels like you’re in your living room at home only it is very bright and inviting with virtually 360 degree views. FP does a great job with décor – offsetting accent colors in leathers and floors avoiding a boring washed out blended look. Placing the galley counter so that it can open to the cockpit as well as serve the salon is brilliant. And the aft cabins have large side access berths adding to the feeling of luxury and comfort. You’ll find that the Lucia 40 is an extremely well thought out boat.
