Hi Trond,

That must have involved some great forward planning to co-ordinate delivery .

Well done, I am envious.

Orana production.

Hi Daniel,
They were building hull #68 when we were in the factory last September.

Gordon,

Thank you for that, it is interesting to know. They have really produced the Orana at quite a rate. I wonder how many are in dealer or FP stock.

Is the Google site that is mentioned on page 3 of this thread still up and running ? I can't get it to work.

FP website.

Hi Daniel,
Here is the link to the FP website.
Fountaine Pajot - Page d'accueil

Have tried the Google site but it seems to have been closed, I think it was being invaded by porn site links etc and was not being used much by Orana owners.

Gordon.

Great choice and welcome to the forum. Please ask away with any questions you may have. Where will you be keeping your boat?
Gordon.

Hey Gordon,

I'm quite sure #68 is not correct. Hull #64 will be built this May and mine is #61, but the build was started just around x-mas.

Maybe it was Hull #58 in September last year.

What extras are people getting on their new boats?

Do any of you owners have a glass section in your saloon table at all?

Strange question I know.

Orana Table.

Hi Daniel,
The new finish in the recent build boats with the darker timber etc. has the saloon table incoporating an oval frosted glass inlay the size of a large plate in the center of the table. This I think allows hot items to sit on the table without fear of marking.
Regards Gordon.

thank you.

I like the shape of the table for a replacement of an existing one.

Multihull Solutions seem to be starting to push hard on your boat now.

Hopefully you will be in a new boat soon.
