Two new models built by the French builder Fountaine Pajot made their world debut at the 2014 Miami Boat Show. Coined as Trawler Catamarans for long cruising, the Summerland 40 LC and Cumberland 47 LC feature exceptional range and stability for buyers interested in a high quality of life while spending extended time on board.
The Summerland 40 LC’s interior was designed with contrasting colors and materials, the combination of which yields a contemporary and casual feel. Walnut woodwork highlighted with leather and white glass for work surfaces in the galley give a rich and comfortable feel. A single-seat helm station provides the skipper with nearly an unencumbered 360-degree view thanks to large hull windows that bring the outside in. Below, the owner’s expansive and luxurious stateroom with a transverse bed to starboard has its own private bathroom. Two double cabins with a shared bathroom comprise the port hull.
Inside and outside entertaining and living spaces flow easily on the Cumberland 47 LC, with an aft door that slides open two-thirds of the width. An L-shaped settee doubles as an interior dining area, but owners and guests will most certainly prefer alfresco dining on the aft deck with its sensational view.
Both models feature an expansive and user-friendly flybridge where yet a third dining area can be found on the 47 LC, while a spacious sunpad is on the 40 LC. Fountaine Pajot also offers a larger model, the Queensland 55.
