Multihull Solutions this week take a look a the remarkable Power 67 by Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts. This Flagship model boasts all the signature features of the shipyard’s highly acclaimed lineup, yet has also inherited the luxury, space and elegance of the stunning Alegria 67 sailing catamaran.
The Fountaine Pajot Power 67 is equally suited for long-distance cruising and entertaining with the layout and space that only a 64’6’ (19.69 m) long catamaran with a 32’3” (9.84 m) beam can provide. She’s drawn by Berret-Racoupeau Yacht Design and is available in two layouts. The Lounge Maestro has the galley down with an owner’s suite and three double cabins with en suites, whereas the Classic Maestro, has the galley on the main deck with an owner’s suite and four double cabins below, each with a private head.
Stairs to starboard on the aft deck lead up to the Power 67’s flybridge that offers 344.44 sq. ft (32 sq. m) of open area. There’s a horseshoe-shaped lounge around a table to port. To starboard, there’s a small wetbar with a grill just ahead of the stairs. Aft are two rear-facing double-wide lounges. Forward to starboard, the helm has dual multifunction displays with the controls and IPS joystick to starboard making cruising easy. The bench-style seat has a fold-up bolster so the captain can sit or stand while driving. Lounges alongside and immediately abaft the helm seat ensure that the captain will have company during a long cruise.
From the flybridge, it’s easy to see the potential of the foredeck as a gathering area during a dockside cocktail party, the Power 67 boasting ample foredeck space for entertaining. Aft, there’s a jacuzzi to port with two lounges to starboard. Forward, the teak decking is wide open, perfect for putting out some chaise lounges to soak up some rays, getting in some yoga or dancing the night away.
The forward lounges are recessed below deck level and the jacuzzi is sure to be a hit with family members of all ages.
Extra-wide side decks with tall rails lead aft where there are stairs on each side of the centrally positioned swim platform. There’s a passerelle to port to facilitate pier-side boarding. The swim platform between the hulls can be lowered into the water to create a private beach.
Moving forward, the aft deck has 387.5 sq. ft. (36 sq. m) of space and a large lounge that wraps around a table to port. Folding deck chairs add capacity and the table can be lowered to create a large berth. There’s a smaller lounge to starboard as well as a grill and overhead, the flybridge provides shade for the entire area that comes equipped with recessed lighting.
Large stainless-steel framed glass doors open to provide a seamless entry to the Power 67’s salon. The boat’s expanse is felt in this area where there’s a super-sized lounge and a table to starboard. In the Classic Maestro layout, the galley is opposite to port with a small lounge just ahead. Forward, a centrally positioned door leads to the foredeck. To starboard, a navigation station includes a chart plotting screen plus monitors for the on board systems.
With the catamaran design, the cabins are entered from hatches on each side of the salon. The master suite covers 236.81 sq. ft. (22 sq. m) of space to port with a large dressing area including a small lounge area and a private head with his and her sinks and a separate shower area. Each of the other cabins has a hanging locker and natural light from hullside windows and overhead deck hatches. Forward, there are crew quarters in each bow that could also be good for children.
A thoughtful and popular model here from Fountaine Pajot, the Power 67 equipped here with a number of multifunctional spaces, the aft deck seeming to be the real star of the show in this case. The Power 67 seems to be an excellent progression from previous models and a brilliant addition to an already esteemed product lineup.
