56' Fountaine Pajot Catamaran Palarran

After 8 years of enjoying Palarran we have decided to sell her. This is the info I have put together for a fsbo effort. The price is $435,000 and she is riding out the hurricane season in Freeport, Bahamas.

Palarran, a 2001 Fountaine Pajot Marquises, is an excellent voyaging catamaran but could be converted to a private charter catamaran easily. The current owner purchased her in 2010 in St. Maarten and did extensive work to prepare the boat for a Mediterranean adventure. In 2012 she sailed from the Caribbean to Greece over a 4-month period. After six years of touring most of western and eastern Med regions during the summer, the owner returned from Athens to the Bahamas this year.

Over this period extensive work has been performed on Palarran to keep her in top notch shape and safe for cruising. Items of note is the extensive ground tackle on board. The boat has safely anchored in 100’ of water with winds in excess of 50 knots. In 2016 the mast and all aluminum exterior parts were removed and painted. New electrical wiring was run when reassembled. All hatches have had the Plexiglas replaced and are clear to see through.

The laundry facilities are second to none with a large capacity washer and high heat vented dryer. That along with the high capacity water maker means clean clothes and sheets like at home. Another feature that will be greatly appreciated is the fresh water power flush heads. They never smell or clog and are so easy to operate. All this fresh water is easily supplied from the high capacity desalinator.

With the upgraded sails in 2016, the SOG has increased significantly and she now sails at half the apparent wind speed plus 1 or 2 knots. So, in 16 knots of apparent, you can sail 9 to 10 knots SOG. By using the spinnaker, speeds within 2 or 3 knots of apparent can be achieved from 110 to 160 degrees. Another feature to be appreciated on long passages is the triple reef point. It is quite conservative which has allowed sailing in winds up to 45 knots apparent.

Over the past 8 years, Palarran has taken the current owner, his family, and over 150 friends and family 22,000 nm safely and in comfort. It’s now time for her to take on another adventure with another owner. After reviewing the extensive list of features and inventory, feel free to contact the owner via e-mail. You can also view sailing videos on YouTube by searching Sailpalarran.
