Fountaine Pajot Tobago 35 - 1998

Asking price: $159,000 USD

Current Location (Jan 2015): Society Islands, French Polynesia

Registration: United States


We purchased Irie in 2007. Prior to our purchase, her previous owner had brought her to Maryland, USA from the Caribbean where she had spent her first 5 years. She was lightly used when we purchased her, and we have taken very good care of her over the years, and improved her dramatically.

Although she is only 35’ in length, there is plenty of room onboard, and we are often told about the unbelievable amount of space we have for this size catamaran. We have had up to 4 guests for 2 weeks onboard, and on many occasions, over 15 people gathered for an evening of food and drinks. On the specification sheet it states she sleeps eight, although more than six would be a bit crowded for any period of time.

Tobagos are one of the best (if not the best) small sailing catamarans ever built. Irie points to windward as easily as most other cruising style monohulls, and we have often out-tacked and sailed faster up-wind than many monos. Off the wind, with her 35’ of length, she is very comfortable at 7-8 knots of speed. With her asymmetrical spinnaker, she keeps moving at 3 knots, in only 5 knots of breeze. If you want a good performing sailing boat, as well as a “home” to live in, the Tobago, for its size, can’t be beat.

Irie is a fully equipped blue-water sailing catamaran. She comes with everything needed to start enjoying the Pacific as soon as you move onboard (safety equipment, galley equipment, tools, spares, etc…). She has oversized anchoring equipment to make sure she stays safe if the weather turns poor.

There are spares for almost every system, thanks to a wind generator and 2 solar panels she makes enough electricity to keep up with the normal electrical demands while living on board, and she is probably one of the best out-fitted and well-kept of any Tobago ever built.

Irie was just hauled out in March 2014 for new paint, and to perform other maintenance such as replacing the rudder bushings, changing the saildrive intakes to ball-valves, and installing a new propeller on one of the saildrives.

All of her standing rigging was replaced in 2011 from every pin and cotter pin to new turnbuckles, wires, and sta-lok fittings. Running rigging has been replaced as needed and is all in good working order.

Her two Yanmar 18hp diesel engines have worked flawlessly since we have owned her. We take meticulous care of the engines and saildrives, and have all records to show this. The engine hours are about 3400 on each engine, and we know of many people with the same engines that have 5000+ hours without requiring a rebuild yet. Both engines can be rebuilt and removed from the boat with minimal difficulty. Engine access is superb, so working on the engines is (almost) a pleasure.

The boat has a huge house battery bank (660aH) to allow you to stay off the grid indefinitely. Her solar panels and wind generator will provide ample electricity back into the batteries while at anchor. We have spent 99.9% of the past 7 years at anchor with the current system, and rarely need to run a portable generator to top off the batteries. One engine also has a high output (80amp) Balmar alternator to quickly charge the batteries when motoring. There is a separate start battery for the engines.

Irie was one of the last Tobagos ever produced, and in turn, has all the upgrades that Fountaine Pajot performed on the model over the years. No carpet liners, extra storage in the galley, stove and oven, etc..

We are continually impressed with the thought that went into the design of the Tobago. Fountaine Pajot did an excellent job in making sure everything is accessible for maintenance. For example, all tankage can easily be removed and replaced if needed, all wiring is accessed via removable panels in strategic locations, engine access is better than an automobile, and the best part, sailing on her is a pleasure!


We have full inventory sheets available for anyone interested. Too much to list here.

Thanks for looking!

Re: Fountaine Pajot Tobago 35 - 1998

Hi Peter,

The standing heights:

Cockpit: 1.80
Salon: 1.87
Cabins: 1.85

I am 1.87 height, and have lived onboard for 8 years fine. Much taller than me, might be an issue however. The cockpit has a flap in the Bimini that opens to allow full standing height when at the helm.


Here is the other info:

Beam: 19' 1"
Displacement at present: Unknown.
Official: 4T
Layout: See website.
Motor cruising speed: 6 kts, but varies up or down .5 kts based on conditions.
Fuel: 3/4 gallon/hr using both engines
Max motor speed: Don't really know. We don't run our engines at max output and sail much more than motor. My educated guess would be a bit over 7kts, maybe 7.5 in calm conditions. The fastest we have motored is about 7kts, but that was not max RPM.

She sails faster than she motors. Her engines are 2x Yanmar 18HP.
