This Fountaine Pajot Eleuthera 60 is beautiful, powerful and the singular creation of a couple that has pushed the ideals of efficient bluewater sailing, comfortable life aboard and the culinary arts to new heights.
The Eleuthera offers some of the smartest design features and ergonomics ever imagined for a cat of this size. You board on super-wide transoms that lead to a vast, teak-floored cockpit with four distinct spaces: a large teak dining table that sits 8 people comfortably, two lateral sitting areas and a wide, aft gangway that allows easy access to the dinghy and a customized outdoor BBQ/plancha station. The raised helm station on the starboard bulkhead gives the driver true visibility to all four corners of the boat and a direct view of the sailplan.
Proceeding through the sliding doors, you discover the largest open-plan salon and galley in this size class. Cocktail table and settee directly ahead and a large chart table to port. The U-shaped galley with bar is to the right, complete with four burner stove, oven, two large sinks and corian countertops - a gourmet's delight. The light beachwood finishes light-up this wide open space. The entire salon/galley and all four cabins are air conditioned.
GRIKYPAC was specified new by a couple with extensive cruising experience who chose the precise gear to take them far - efficiently and safely. The two 110 HP Volvo engines drive four-blade props mounted on straight shafts that push this big yacht at 10 knots. Five electric winches are dedicated to handling the main halyard, the genoa sheets and the mainsail track and sheet. The main and genoa are Hydranet, triradial cut for ideal shape and maximum thrust. A full hard-top bimini provides easy access to the boom and mainsail.
Two large Raymarine 120 screens at the nav table and helm make navigation simple day and night. Radar and AIS assist navigation, Iridium and Thrane & Thrane for voice and data satellite communications.
This stunning yacht has been owned by the same meticulous, liveaboard owners since new, has never chartered and features low engine (port 896, starboard 801) and generator (1500) hours.
New bottom paint and new boot stripes, December 2016. See exterior photos. Boat is looking great and ready to go.
