This catamaran owner requires financial settlement only. Trades will not be considered.

S/V Jose is a 2003 Fountaine Pajot Lavezzi 40 Catamaran for sale by owner. This is a 3 cabin Owners’ Version with the Starboard hull holding the owner’s quarters with an aft double berth and a spacious toilet and shower compartment in the bow, leaving room for additional stowage, a lounge and desk area, midships. The port hull has a central toilet and shower compartment with double cabins at the ends of the boat, The aft double cabins are generous, the berths are over 1.6m wide and 2m long. They feel light and spacious with easy access to the berth and there is good ventilation. The forward cabin is a bit smaller due to the narrowing of the hull forward which is necessary for performance. Overall, the hulls and the cabins feel private, spacious and the light sycamore wood finish has a quality feel to its lacquered finish.

The saloon seating is comfortable for six and there is room for two additional chairs if seating for eight is required. The galley is on the port side of the bridge deck and is well laid out with a double sink, 4 burner stove, and oven which are fed by two self-draining gas lockers in the cockpit. There is sufficient stowage for pots, pans, food and consumables. Navigation station is to starboard.

The saloon is spacious and easy to move around with a saloon table and comfortable seating area to port which works well being adjacent to the galley with it serving worktop bridging these two key areas.

The Lavezzi is very easy to handle with all controls close to the helm position. The mainsail is fully battened with good batten cars that have been developed by Fountaine Pajot with plenty of roach and controllable with the mainsheet and winch system. The mainsail is well developed and has a nice shape to it. The helm position is to starboard with a comfortable seat. There is a large instrument console with a small wind shield.

This boat has had just one owner, and ownership has been for personal use. She has never been chartered nor has she been kept in salt water. She currently lies in a marina located in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.  We keep her shrink wrapped in dry dock storage from September through May every year and we have never used her as a live-aboard. The trampoline lacing was replaced 4 years ago, and all connectors are in good condition.  

The Lavezzi was the first of their range to be developed for resin infusion. In this process all of the dry materials, the various layers of fiberglass matting and the foam are carefully laid into place, then everything is vacuum bagged down and the resin infused through the vacuum. Production uses vinylester resin which is much more resistant to osmosis than its isophthalic resin predecessor. Supervised by Bureau Veritas, the Lavezzi is CE marked and approved to Category A for up to 10 people.

The hull has several coats of Intro Lux Micro Extro Anit Fouling Paint. This boat is in good shape, and is ready to go.
