2006 Fountaine Pajot 40 ft LAVEZZI Shiloh
Shiloh is easily boarded from either of the "Sugar Scoops" up to the aft deck with large table for at least 6 and cushioned seating.
Entry into the salon through the glass large sliding door reveals a spacious and well-lit interior with an almost panoramic view, and great visibility.
The galley is to port and well equipped as are the double sinks and dish drain. The large fridge is on the other side of the easy access stairs from the galley. Looking forward to starboard is the large salon table with room for at least 6. Just to starboard of the table is the Navigations center and electrical panels.
From there we take the easy steps into the starboard. The aft cabin is used as a work and storage place. Going forward the full head is to the left with sink and shower. Forward of the head is the starboard stateroom with hanging locker.
We then go to the port hull an ample head and shower are in the center of the hull with the port stateroom aft of that and another stateroom forward with storage and lockers.
The helm station on the Lavezzi 40 is efficient and comfortable. A small windshield provides some shelter without obstructing vision, and all the controls operate smoothly. While the sheets do not all lead directly to the helm, it's only a short walk to reach the double-ended mainsheet or the genoa sheets.
It's easy to enter and leave the expansive cockpit, and the decks are wide with good handholds alongside the cabin. Big lockers forward will swallow the dock lines and fenders, and the anchor windlass can double as a power winch for raising the mainsail.
Fountaine Pajot has extensive experience in voyaging catamarans, and the Lavezzi 40 shows that heritage. This is a substantial cruiser with good performance and spacious accommodations.
The Fountaine Pajot LAVEZZI 40 offers excellent performance at sea, with awesome stability and a generous sail plan. Genoa winches positioned to keep the cockpit clear and open with ease of single hand maneuverability. Great under power or sail.
