2014 Fountaine Pajot Helia 44

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico


 “This beautiful Fountaine Pajot Helia 44 Maestro “Owners’ Version” is one of the most sought after catamarans on the market today and is a rare find.  She has been fully equipped by her original owners and is ready for off-grid and offshore cruising.  The Owners’ version (Maestro) has the entire starboard hull earmarked as the owners’ suite.  It contains a luxurious queen-sized bed, ensuite bathroom, separate shower stall, sofa, desk and abundant storage. The port hull contains two separate queen-sized cabins complete with ensuite bathroom, separate shower stall and abundant storage. The roomy cockpit can accommodate eight people around a large dining table that flows into the main salon containing galley, navigation station, comfortable lounge seating and coffee table that converts to a small dining table.

“Bisou” has been meticulously maintained by the original (non-smoking) owners.  Bisou has never been chartered and is in excellent condition.  She is fully equipped with everything needed to go cruising now with her new owner. She was just hauled and new bottom paint and her sail-drives have been serviced. Also all New Solbian Solar Panels have just been installed. A 2022 survey is available upon request.”
