LAVEZZI - MADAGASCAR - DYC 104
Madagascar is known as “Treasure Island” due to its landscape diversity, including the Radama and Mitsio archipelagos, beautiful seas and geological curiosities.It’s also home to a myriad of flora, fauna and wildlife, such as whale sharks and humpback whales.
The Lavezzi 40 has been hailed as the new reference in cruising catamarans with its innovative design, advanced technology and superior handling.
The design office and architects Joubert/Nivelt and interior designer O. Flahault set out to innovate, for life on board and moving about on deck and for performance under sail - already renowned features across the Fountaine Pajot range.
The catamaran boasts an extremely open and airy saloon with an aft-facing semi-circular galley. A large opening hatch combined with the off-centre door turns the galley into an integral part of the cockpit - a great advantage in Australia's warmer climate.
The galley is located on the port side, leaving ample space for the table and bench seating, with enough room for eight people. The saloon of the Lavezzi 40 features roomy cupboard space in the galley and for the new chart table. The instrument panel has been incorporated into a user-friendly facade.
The centrally accessed cockpit features a rest area close to the helm station, as well as a dining area with a table at which eight can be seated comfortably.
To reduce noise levels in the cabins, the engines have been installed in the aft holds, which are independent of the cabins and allow easy access for maintenance purposes.
The Lavezzi 40's sail plan is generous with an upwind area of 90m2. The genoa winches are laid out in such a way as to keep the cockpit as clear as possible, making manoeuvres even easier and helmed without difficulty by just one person.
