How to haul out ?

Can you haul out a Mahe 36 from under the bride deck ?

Welcome to the forum, Emanuel.

There may be an owner on the forum who can answer, but failing in that, ask your yard staff. Personally I would expect the slings to align with the arms to the two hulls, since they would be the structure holding the hulls apart when the slings compress from the sides.

Yes you can. Thats how FP move the boats in the yard and from the factory to the water. Have a look at this scary video:

You have to support in the right places of course and if you contact FP info@fountaine-pajot.com they should give you the support plan. Basically you support under the 2 main structural bulkheads over as large an area as possible.

We launched and recovered our FP Maldives and our friends' 2 times a year for 10 years doing this, with a trailer, hydraulic jacks and adjustable scaffold feet supporting deep wood beams covered in carpet. Having a tidal range of 4-5m allowed us to dry the boat on a slipway and jack up in what passes for dry in an English late autumn.

The first link is a web address showing a move of a a Helia 44 being moved several miles to launch on the FP bespoke articulating trailer which should have worked.
The second is an email address for technical enquiries to FP info@fountaine-pajot.com which you will need to paste into your email 'To' address. They are pretty good at replying in general, just tell them which model, hull no if you know it and they should give you the details. In general you would support under the bridge deck in way of the main transverse bulkhead usually directly under the mast and the main aft bulkhead which is probably in line with the rear saloon bulkhead and aft cabins forward bulkhead, but you do need the specifics for the Mahe.
I have looked through all my photos but seem to have never taken a picture of our mated trailer/boat unfortunately.
