Here is your chance to own a modern Fountaine Pajot Helia 44 catamaran for a fraction of the price. With minimal water damage, this would be a great headstart for a hands-on buyer in the market for a project catamaran. Plenty of value in this deal as similar model Fountaine Pajot sister ships are selling in the neighbourhood of USD$650,000.

ORION was overturned onto sand by Hurricane Dorian in Abaco, the Bahamas in September 2019. Despite being dismasted, the vessel did not sustain a lot of damage. The boat remained dry other than spray and rain through the saloon doors. A small amount of water, leaves and other organic matter settled in the saloon roof so there are minor watermarks and stains. One window was broken in the saloon roof, which was replaced with a temporary plastic panel to keep out the weather. One white interior panel was also damaged in the saloon roof. The vessel sustained some minor and localised damage to the port hull just below the waterline, which was repaired with epoxy before salvaging. All fibreglass work above the waterline was completed to a strong standard in Abaco, Bahamas prior to delivery to Florida. Some lifelines and rails are bent.
