While the Mahe 36 Evolution is indeed a catamaran, there many features that you would normally find on standard luxury yachts.

One of the biggest is the integrated full length hard top, which makes this the first in it’s class. This rigid bimini covers all aspects of the sailing controls, even the main sheet tracking system. The double helm seating arrangement gives a commanding view that is a full 360 degrees, much like it’s larger sister cat, the Lipari 41. Because of this integrated design, the whole cockpit is now free for entertaining and relaxing. Now you will have such a vast living area, protected from the elements, and the beating sun. It boasts a 160 square foot saloon.

Inside is just as spectacularly spacious as the outside, which were inspired by some of the larger catamarans, in the Fountaine Pajot‘s line up. The galley area has been totally redesigned, with two large stainless steel sinks. The front opening refrigerator has been expanded to a 130 liter capacity, and sits closer the the cockpit area. In addition to the traditional saloon area, there is now another built in bench seat, which can also be used for extra storage.

Now they have a full line up of state of the art sailing and motor cats available. They are a leader in the use of the most advance technologies, which is no wonder they are one of the most popular shipyards in the industry.
