1. Fountaine Pajot Trawler Catamarans
Click on the link to the right for complete details. All models available in a max cabin and owner's layout configuration
Sea trials on a 37'
sea trials were conducted in late July/August and Eric attended them in France.
The fundamental advantages are achieved by having
two relatively narrow hulls instead of a single, much broader one. This
configuration presents much less wave making resistance and thus the
combination of more fuel economy, higher speeds per horsepower applied and
less wave motion imparted to the boat.

BYA and the Catamaran...
Yacht Agency has been a leading new and used boat sales company based out of Annapolis, MD
since 1972. In the last 6 years, we have become, possibly, the largest, offshore, sailboat
catamaran dealer in North America. For the last 2 years we have experimented with larger
engines installed in catamaran sailboats. Extensive experimentation has taught us that we
can easily achieve speeds of up to 18 knots in sailboats that were not especially designed
exclusively for power.
In the last 5 years, Fountaine Pajot has taken over a huge production facility on the water and put together a team of professionals to develop and build a commercial line of Catamaran Ferries and cargo carriers. This team and facility was also developed to produce the outstanding Yachts that you will see when you look at any of the Cat Trawlers that Fountaine Pajot offers.

Stop carrying the baggage of old ideas
Our Boat-As-A-Business Plan offers a whole new approach. There is no less expensive way to cruise. This approach costs less than chartering. Less than owning a used boat. Less than fractional or time-share ownership.
Did you know that you're probably already paying for a new boat--you just don't have it. You're paying for it with taxes that could be diverted to equity in your new boat!
Wouldn't it be nice to travel through life with everything you need in one carry on? Here's how to simplify your life and reward your hard work. Find out more here!

5. Customize your new (or used) Power Cat...
Fountaine Pajot offers value. Engineering, performance and quality second to none. But why are they such a great value? Because they build production boats in large volume. FP, over the years, has been the largest catamaran builder in the world. They have a world wide market and are the largest importer of catamarans to America. If you like the layout, quality and look of the FPof choice--you're in luck. Because of the efficiency of volume production, we will bring this extraordinary vessel to you at a cost that only slightly exceeds the so-so, entry level boats.
Most FP dealers stop there. Bay Yacht Agency goes further. Our on-sight engineers will meet with you and offer to customize your FP so that you end up with a custom built boat at a fraction of the cost of a completely custom built boat, or boutique boat. At the end of the day, we're very close to the price of the entry level boats: Endeavour, PDQ and others..
So, who chooses to own an FP? Frankly, we generally get more experienced buyers. Owners of entry level boats. Serious cruisers that have experience and appreciate the quality and performance of an FP.
So what if you are an entry level buyer? We will give you access to engineers, captains and experts in all phases of boat knowledge. We will provide captains to teach you and get you up to speed.
Are we the right match for you? You need to talk to us. You need to know that we offer a complete service and price guarantee. You will get no better value than to work with us. Customizing. The best price. The best service. The secure feeling that we have commissioned more Fountaine Pajots than any other dealer in America.
