S/V Nikau is a 2016 Fountaine Pajot Lucia 40 catamaran for sale by owner. This model is one of the most spacious 40ft catamarans on the market. She is a well cared for and upgraded, turn-key, 4-cabin, 3-head catamaran, all set for blue water sailing and live aboard cruising.

The Lucia 40 offers modern dynamic lines and refined interior style, great volumes with plenty of live-aboard and relaxation space, and generous natural light in the main salon with near 360 degree views. It is laid out for easy single handed sailing with all lines running back to the helm.

Nikau is well set up for live aboard cruising with a large custom solar arch which also provides great additional shelter and shade. The power system (new 2022) includes 1520w solar, 600ah lithium batteries and a Victron 12v/3000va/120amp Multiplus inverter / charger with Victron smart components and display. The canvas and shades, which include the lazybag, genoa UV strip, helm bimini, cockpit side and rear shades, and saloon window shades, are all new 2022/23. The running rigging is mostly new 2022/23 and the standing rigging has been recently surveyed in Nov 2022.

With fresh bottom paint in June 2023 and an extensive list of tools, spares, radar, safety equipment, kitchen appliances, offshore medical supplies & water toys included, and a 125m para-sailor also available for those longer passages, she is all ready to head off on her next adventure.

She is currently based in Grenada but delivery is available ideally to the northern leeward islands, however, arrangement could be made to deliver to most areas in the Caribbean.
