FP Mahé 36 Evolution Catamaran for Charter : San Diego

The Mahé 36 Evolution is a very comfortable, easy to manage cruising catamaran. It is perfectly suited to Southern California sailing. 36 feet long and incorporating all of the technological advances made over recent years, the Mahé 36 is a nicely appointed, capable, offshore catamaran.

Based on an Olivier Flahault design and with a Joubert/Nivelt hull, it is built for seaworthy cruising with comfortable, bright living areas and a fully protected cockpit alongside the saloon.

The Mahé 36 allows you to move around freely onboard, enjoying comfort when sailing (at the helm, in the cockpit or down below) or while moored. It also boasts excellent sailing performance.

FP Mahe 36 Evolution Exterior:

From Sail Magazine, 2008 (edited): Storage on deck is good. A single locker in the cockpit can accommodate lines and fenders, and a larger foredeck locker will swallow extra deck gear. The traveler, which runs the full width of the stern on the aft crossbeam, provides good main sheet control, and both jib sheets can be trimmed from the helm station. The feedback from the helm was workable, and the boat does not require lots of subtle helm adjustments to keep the telltales flying straight back. The helm station is comfortable, and the ability to trim both jib sheets from the helm station is a plus. Under sail, this is a good little performer that doesn’t feel little when you’re under way.

FP Mahe 36 Evolution Interior:

From Sail Magazine, 2008 (edited): The owner’s cabin to starboard has a large queen bunk aft and plenty of stowage space in cabinets, drawers, and a hanging locker, plus access to another large storage locker farther forward in the hull. An opening hatch and opening ports provide plenty of ventilation. The entire starboard bow is dedicated to a head that’s bigger than heads I’ve seen on some 60-foot monohulls. The entire accommodation area is accented with stylish light varnished-wood furniture and a parquet cabin sole. The saloon has all the light, space, and seating you’d expect to find on an offshore cruising cat, though it’s a little narrower (fore and aft) than a bigger cat’s saloon would be. The galley and the nav station in the saloon are more than adequate. The chart table has a seat, and the galley has decent counter space plus a handy window for passing drinks up to the helm.
