The epic story of Fountaine Pajot began in 1976 and is inspired by two visionary men: Jean-François Fountaine and Yves Pajot, internationally famous ocean racers. The Fountaine Pajot brand was a forerunner in the design of polyester cruising catamarans and it quickly became an international reference.
Fountaine Pajot is one of the most respected shipyards in the world. The dedicated vision of the founding partners, combined with an ongoing commitment to innovation, development and unrivalled service, has seen the company garner countless industry awards and set the benchmark for cruising catamarans throughout the world.
This 40 years of incomparable experience has witnessed the creation of 40 sail and power models, each uniquely suited to the individual needs of their happy owners. This 40 years of success continually inspires the company to reach for new horizons and set even higher standards on the exciting projects planned for years to come.
The lifeblood of the company is its executive staff who have an unwavering commitment to achieving excellence across all facets of the company’s operation. They have successfully reconciled their professional careers with a passion for cruising and racing, never faltering in their love of the sea and the wind.
