2012 Lipari 41 catamaran to be unveiled late March

The latest version of Multihull’s popular cruising catamaran, the Fountaine Pajot Lipari 41, will be unveiled at Hillarys Boat Show in WA, 23-25 March.

The 2012 Lipari features many interior upgrades including luminous timber cabinetry, contemporary upholstery and high standard fixtures and trims.

The catamaran has been constructed with a low centre of gravity and light displacement of 7.6t to ensure safety, stability with optimal comfort and performance in all conditions. Its two 20hp standard engines provide a cruising speed of 7.7kts, while the option of two larger 30hp engines offers up to 9.5kt if required.

The catamaran’s ergonomically-designed deck provides convenient centralised handling with obstacle-free movement. Built with advanced RTM éco technology, the Lipari 41 has the mast built into the deck rather than the roof for reinforced structural rigidity and ease of handling. The Lipari 41 also features an integrated dual-seating helm station with excellent visibility and has the cockpit and saloon on the same level to help make short and long passages a cruising pleasure.

The cockpit features all-weather protection, ample seating for eight guests, a stainless-steel framed dining table and open-plan entertaining facilitated by a large sliding door opening into the saloon.

Inside, the saloon and galley have been designed for spacious and relaxed living with large windows that provide outstanding natural light, ventilation and visibility. Dining for eight is comfortably accommodated with the saloon’s stylish table that also has stainless-steel legs, an integrated plate stand and extraordinary under-bench storage. The adjacent chart table is also large, comfortable and practical.

The generously-equipped galley has been designed for easy entertaining with a piano-hinged refrigerator, good storage and quality designer fixtures.

Each of the roomy cabins is well-ventilated with large portholes, superb visibility and an abundance of hanging and cupboard space.

The Lipari 41 is available in two versions: the Standard features four cabins with two separate bathrooms and is ideal for family and charter use. The three-cabin is a true Owner’s version with an exclusive private suite in the starboard hull including a decadent queen-size bed, desk, library and beautiful en suite with contemporary designer fixtures.

The 2012 Hillarys Boat Show will be staged at Hillarys Boat Harbour in the City of Joondalup, Perth. This year’s show promises to be packed with fun displays of the latest in boating and associated leisure equipment, as well as plenty of entertainment for the whole family.

The show is open from 9.30am to 5.00pm, and admission costs $15 per adult with children given free entry.
