Fountaine Pajot Lipari 41 could be characterized as a typical cruising cat for its size. It has spacious accommodations, relatively high freeboard and raised saloon with excellent visibility. The Lipari also follows some of the newest design trends in cruising cats. Also, instead of the canvas bimini raised above the saloon’s coach roof, the Lipari follows the trend of simply extending the saloon coach roof over what could be called the cockpit. More accurately this might be termed the “exterior lounge area.
Significant differences between this vessel and other catamarans, rest in devilish details and chosen compromises. Lipari 41 is generally lighter and a bit more performance oriented than some of the other catamarans in its size range. Its sail area-to-displacement ratio also is a little higher than the other cats have, providing a bit more power per pound.
That said, the layout is spacious and workable. The berths are all large, and the cabins are well ventilated. Thanks to a flared chine inboard and above the waterline, the forward berths are even a little wider than you’ll find on many similarly sized cats. Since the engines are placed well aft, the stern sections are full enough to keep the transoms from dragging. The placement of the engines also helps minimize the maintenance mess and engine noise in the aft cabins.
If the latest tendency in cruising-cat design is to combine good sailing performance with minimal yet ultra comfortable interior accommodations, then the Lipari 41 is heading in the right direction.
