Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts’ new Summerland 40 Long Range power catamaran has been declared Boat of the Year at the prestigious 2014 Moteur Boat Awards.

The Summerland 40 LR won the title against a strong field of finalists in the ‘Liveable Boats’ category which comprised motor yachts ranging from 29 to 45 feet.

The Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts catamaran impressed the judges with its exceptional interior space, outstanding stability, and its performance in the choppy judging conditions.

The Summerland 40 LR also won the title due to its remarkable accommodation, particularly its three designer double cabins and its decadent owner’s cabin that boasts a panoramic sea view.

The judges also commended the catamaran’s sleek and contemporary interior design, autonomy, responsiveness, and excellent fuel consumption that uses 40 per cent less than monohulls of comparable size.
