Dubai based Eden Yachting has further strengthened its presence in the region with the announcement that the company has become the exclusive dealer for Fountaine Pajot sailing catamarans and motor yachts in the GCC and Lebanon.


Philippe Saad, Founder and Managing Director of Eden Yachting, commented, “We are excited to take on the Fountaine Pajot brand as we believe their comprehensive range of catamarans will be well suited to our clients in the Middle East. This is primarily a day sailing market and although a well thought through entertaining and relaxation space is a priority, this has to be matched with strong performance on the water whether that is sail or power. We are confident that Fountaine Pajot will deliver on all fronts.” 

 With a range of sailing catamarans including the Lucia 40, Astrea 42, Saona 47, Saba 50, Ipanema 58 and Alegria 67, plus power catamarans MY 37, MY 40, MY 44 and the flagship Power 67, Fountaine Pajot have a broad appeal. The eagerly anticipated new ELBA 45 sailing catamaran will be launched during the Cannes Yachting Festival 2019 (10th to 15th September 2019) and the recently added MY 40 has been a well-received addition to the range of power catamarans. 

Steven Guédeu, Commercial Director of Fountaine Pajot, commented, “We are delighted to be working with Eden Yachting in the GCC and Lebanon. As with the Fountaine Pajot management team in France, their personal love for sailing and passion for yacht racing underpin their business success. An in-depth product knowledge and strong client relationships complete the picture and we are confident that the Fountaine Pajot brand will go from strength to strength in the region.” 

Fountaine Pajot have been designers and boat builders since 1976, developing high-performing, seaworthy, innovative and comfortable sailing catamarans and motor yachts on the west coast of France.
