The new 40 a First Look

The guys at Uchimata are working on hull number one that is heading to Paris for the boat show.

New FP40 Fountaine-Pajot - Uchimata

It looks good. We have a three cabin two head boat being built in July that will be coming into the charter fleet next fall.

It really looks like a baby Helia. Very looking forward to seeing how well it sails. Thanks!

Thanks but it is not my boat personally. I am the fleet manager for a charter company in Saint Thomas. The boat we are having built is for a long time client that decided to buy a boat and place in our fleet.

For all their advantages, cats will always look butt-ugly to me compared to mono-hulls. Even if I own a cat some day, I will always prefer the looks of a nice long mono-hull (think J-class!).

So just sit on your cat and hope some of your neighbours have boat with nice lines.

Re: The new 40 a First Look

By the way they now have an option for 3 cabins 2 bathrooms. Owners suite and a single larger bathroom shared by the 2 port cabins. Makes it a good size with shower and toilet on opposing sides and wash basin central. That is what I have ordered.

Short and stout just makes me a tea pot! Please do NOT tip me over and pour me out.
