S/V ARIES is a 2014 Fountaine Pajot Helia 44 catamaran, for sale by owner.

With the Helia, Fountaine-Pajot has created a great design. You immediately feel at home when you step on the boat. A huge cockpit offers space for a table for 8 people and various places to relax. The large saloon houses the spacious U-shaped kitchen and a seating area with a table as well as the navigation station. Large windows offer a 360° panoramic view and flood the room with light. The guest cabins offer comfortable space, storage space and are each equipped with a private bathroom with shower and electric toilets. The owner’s hull includes the large bed, tailored for 2 standard mattresses (200 x 160cm), a reading couch, an office space, plenty of closet and storage space, space for the washing machine and the comfortable bathroom with silent flush toilet and separate shower cubicle.

In addition to the well-structured steering position with a bench that can accommodate up to 3 people, there is the sun deck with 2 loungers and a seating area. Ideal for enjoying your sundowner.

The boat, manufactured using the modern vacuum infusion process, is light and stable and offers both good performance and outstanding comfort. You feel safe in all wind conditions – the boat took us across the Atlantic twice without any problems.

The large sail areas and the additional asymmetrical spinnaker help the boat reach amazing speeds even in light winds.

Already equipped with every conceivable option ex works, we have continuously improved and maintained our ARIES. The boat is in optimal condition, perfect to get in and start sailing. Large batteries, new solar cells with almost 1.5 kW peak, large water tanks and a Schenker water maker guarantee a high degree of self-sufficiency. A Victron MultiPlus 12/3000 inverter enables the washing machine, induction hob, iron or hairdryer to be operated from the many existing 220V sockets. 2 large gas bottles with a gas remote switch (12.5 kg) are enough for more than 6 months. The oven, hob and a plancha grill in the cockpit run on propane.

We are handing over the ship with all the equipment that we have purchased over the years. These include, for example, a canoe, SUP, electric scooter, shopping trolley, fully automatic coffee machine, soda stream, battery-powered tools, many other tools and spare parts.

The 3.4 m Highfield Dinghy with 10 HP outboard motor (with electric starter) is equipped with an external fuel pre-filter, foils, anchor and solar-powered position light. In 2022 we had new UV protection made.

The yacht is available from May 2024.
