S/V Magic Inspiration is a 2005 Fountaine Pajot Bahia 46 catamaran for sale by her owner. Magic Inspiration is one of the best-equipped and conditioned examples of this classic cruiser. She turns heads where ever she goes. She has seen two extensive re-fits. The first 2010-2012 to upgrade her for extensive cruising with new electronics, genset, air con, canvas, cushions, dinghy and more. Her latest refit from 2016-2018 included new sails, hull paint with AWLGRIP 2000, trampoline, electronics, GORI 2 blade folding props, new hatch lenses, interior finishes(leather and flooring), electric heads, hull bottoms, SSB, stereo, inverter, and 2 new SD 60 sail drives.

The Bahia has a total of 27 opening hatches and ports for one the best ventilation systems afloat. Her keels are fixed and filled with foam, protecting the rudders and shafts. Should they strike a reef or submerged object they harmlessly break away without allowing water intrusion. Fountaine Pajot catamarans use nets forward and eliminate weight in the forward hulls to prevent pitching and aid bow recovery in heavy seas.

Flat deck spaces, and especially the relatively flat coach roof, make it comfortable and easy to move around and handle sails. A unique, patented feature is the eyebrow overhang of the coach roof over the window areas. This prevents the high sun from creating a greenhouse effect inside the boat. The four cabins are well fitted with plenty of wood finishes and in each cabin is a full ensuited bathroom. She features an excellent balance under sail, a large cockpit area.

Like every Fountaine Pajot, the Bahia 46 is built to the highest ISO 9002 European standard for offshore yachts, incorporating vacuum-bagging construction and careful hand lay-up with sophisticated high strength resins which results in an extremely high strength to weight ratio while maintaining tremendous abuse strength.

The Bahia 46 is still considered as Fountaine Pajot’s masterpiece as her large saloon and versatile galley up location make the Bahia 46 one of the best designs Fountaine Pajot produced. The sculpted hull and deck lines add a touch of elegance and true aero and fluid dynamics. The interior is finished with hand made fine mahogany and full hull liner for a fine yacht finish. This hand finishing, vs the new injected molded one piece cats of today, also allows for exceptional storage throughout the boat. Under bed dual compartments, under and behind all salon cushions, under the cockpit floor and even in the dry, gel coated, deep bilges.

This privately owned Bahia has been meticulously prepared for long term live aboard world cruising. Magic Inspiration has been lightly chartered by the owners acting as crew. Comfortable, spacious, and in exceptional condition. She is ready to sail. “A MUST SEE CLASSIC”

S/V Magic Inspiration is currently available for showing at Georgetown Yacht Basin, in Georgetown, MD.
