The Orana 44 from Fountaine Pajot, Magicien lV, is an ideal cruising catamaran great for sailing far and tropical lifestyles. The boat gives good performance under sail, due to her relatively narrow hulls and light displacement and a generous sail plan. The interior space remains comfortable for living aboard and the cockpit is generous, even including a sun deck!
There is a semi flybridge helming position, with space for 2 or 3 people and protected by a mini bimini. The electronics, engine controls and sail handing are all regrouped making short handed sailing easy.
The interior is light and airy with good headroom. One feels comfortable especially with the cockpit opening into the saloon via a big sliding door which gives a roomy living area.
Magicien is the 4 cabin, 4 bathroom version with a special set-up for the ‘owners’ hull. The aft starboard cabin has an ‘island’ bed (one can walk all around) which makes it very comfortable. The other 3 cabins have semi-island beds, so access on 2 sides.
This Orana 44 is particularly well equipped for cruising:
- Furuno electronics with 2 autohelms
- 750 Ah of batteries from 2019
- 640 W of solar power and 2 wind generators
- Water maker 40l/h 12 V
- 2 fridges
- 2 electric toilets to add to the 2 manual
- Sails in perfect condition due to little usage
- Security Equipment from 2018
- Dingy 3D Tender from 2017 and 15HP outboard
- 120 m of anchor chain – you can anchor anywhere!
The aesthetics on this catamaran are in perfect condition, having had only 1 owner. The boat has only been lightly used in the Med before making the passage to Polynesia in 2018/2019.
This is the ideal cruising boat for the South Pacific, for a family or friends, with plenty of comfort, owner’s cabin and all the benefits of a 4-cabin version. This Fountaine Pajot Orana 44 is perfectly equipped for ocean crossing, currently carefully stored on the hard and waiting for her next adventure. A must see for serious cruisers!
