Well havent heard about it, but we have made up our minds it will not be a Lipari, and if we where to have a cat i think an Lavezzi is better. spes windsrceen, Lipari cant have this.
So we are going to get an OVNI 445. shallow draft, and sails very good.

Osmosis prevention

Does any one of you know what Fountaine Pajot has done to stop their numerous osmosis problems in particular with newish boats like the Mahé and the Lavezzi? If anything at all?!

There's another thread devoted to that subject in this forum. It has all the pertinent info and is well worth a read.

FYI the Lavezzi has been superseded by the Lipari.

Well, good luck with your search. It will be interesting to hear your thoughts about the Lagoon 400 and FP Lipari. As I haven't seen the Lagoon 400 yet.
Well we went to spain in november, looked at 3 boats, used they where asking about the same as we got a new one (Lagoon 380) with all options (x solarpannels on the back)

So prices changes.
So my wife wanted the L380 .
Finaly i can sail again, may 2011.

Re: New FP Lipari 41

Did Anyone get the single line reef system they offer. I would like to get an opinion on it and also see a photo of how they run their lines.

Mine doesn't turn up till later this year.

Thanks.

This is how it's set up to give you an idea.

Have they changed to single line reefing? Previously the FP Lipari option was for reefing lines brought back to helm position but you still needed to go forward to mast to put the tack strop through the cringle (hard work until the strop softens up with weathering)

I'm thinking of changing reef 3 or 2 over to single line using a design like Cotemar's sketch

Re: New FP Lipari 41

Single line reef on first reef is in my options list but at the usual ridiculous price. I was trying to work out what you got for your money. Looking at what is there it doesn't look that hard to change. I had thought of just passing the rope through the eye on the sail rather than a block but I assume the friction is the reason for the blocks. The idea of having to go forward to insert the tack straps seems crazy.

When the wind and wave’s pickup it was just too hard for use to steer and pull down the first reef at the mast. It was not fun.

There is a lot of force and resistance on the reef line without the blocks it would take much more effort.
Single line reefing with the blocks works very well for us and was a create upgrade that I would recommend to anyone
We do not hesitate to reef now.

Do you have single line just on reef 1? Also how have you atttached the bottom block on the mast?

Re: New FP Lipari 41

Yes this is my setup. I was just answering Dod42.
The reef block on the mast is in the same position as the original.
Just purchased a larger one.

Rig and Sails

Z Spars mast block #288 size 80mm $86 usd
In USA purchase from www.usspars.com
In UK purchase from www.zsparsuk.com
Note: This block replaces the smaller mast block with the same size block used on the main sail halyard.

Looks like the Lipari is in for a major face lift. Found in the news section of Fountaine's web site.

Re: New FP Lipari 41

I saw the Lipari 41 at Cannes, and I still prefer the Hélia 44.

Re: New FP Lipari 41

First weekend on our new Lipari. The changes to to Evolution are VERY nice. A lot of cosmetic stuff that pleased the admiral. The new galley layout is very nice. Double draw fridges same as Helia, New bench top and extra space above the fridge. Moved the oven around and put in space for a microwave. Love the Hollywood lights everywhere. Led light strips below cupboards and in berths, nice touch. The teak table will need some protection but looks great. Much lighter throughout with the new windows, colour scheme and the two part door opens things up alot. The 4th battery setup is nice, even the boom gooseneck looks different. Going to go nuts with the tape measure and camera this weekend.
