Like new! Super low hours on engines and generator. One owner, never chartered. 

MONARCH is a pristine Fountaine Pajot Isla 40 3-cabin owners’ version in like new condition. She was brought over from the factory in 2022. The owners had a change in life plans and regretfully had to put her up for sale. She has only been sailed a few times in the protected waters of Upper Galveston Bay. She features the larger, 30 hp engines which make maneuvering a breeze.

The Isla 40 sailing catamaran perfectly embodies the spirit and innovative design of Fountaine Pajot. Her inverted bows, her innovative saloon where the chart table adjacent to the entrance gives way to a “total relaxation” lounger, her performances and her habitability combine to make this new model an exceptional catamaran.

The first step towards blue-water sailing. The first model in the range incorporates everything that has made our sailing catamarans so famous: distinctive lines and plenty of space, creating an irresistible desire to cast off. All you need to do is choose your next port of call!

You can easily distinguish the Isla 40 from other sailing catamarans. Yacht design is no easy task, but our teams are experts at it. Reversed bows, deck cladding, stylised hull portholes and a sleek silhouette… you almost forget that this multihull is a 40-footer. But it’s enough to give her the air of a tall ship, ready to set sail on new adventures. The entire Fountaine Pajot ethos is concentrated here in a combination of spaces and volumes offering a superb degree of liveability. Her hull and sail plan provide a real thrill, and the ergonomics of her helm are designed with utmost safety in mind.

The horizon begins expanding for you here. There’s nothing like an open-plan space to make you feel at ease. A retractable sliding door creates a seamless transition between the exterior cockpit area and interior saloon, making the galley the centre of onboard life. Simply closing the door transforms the interior into a cozy haven.

One of the fundamental principles behind Fountaine Pajot yachts is that the skipper is not just the person behind the helm: they’re also a parent or the leader of a group of friends. The cockpit has been designed so they are always in visual contact and communication with the rest of the crew.

Whether you opt for the ‘maestro’ Owner version comprising an entire hull converted into a spacious master suite plus two guest cabins, or the 4–cabin ‘quartet’ format with 2 to 4 bathrooms, comfort is à la carte for everyone after a wonderful day at sea.
