Foun­taine-pa­jot and Du­four merge

Yachting Monthly - - NEWS -

French cata­ma­ran builder Foun­tainepa­jot and Du­four Yachts are putting fi­nal touches to merger plans. The two firms, both based in La Rochelle, have reached an agree­ment, al­though staff are be­ing con­sulted be­fore the de­ci­sion is fi­nalised. Foun­taine-pa­jot will take a ma­jor­ity stake in Du­four Yachts, though the com­pa­nies will re­main sep­a­rate. The merger aims to open up new mar­kets for the brands. Foun­taine-pa­jot, which has launched its new flag­ship Astréa 42, has a strong pres­ence in the Amer­i­cas while Du­four, which has un­veiled its new 390 Grand Large, is well es­tab­lished in Europe.

Du­four will be run as a sep­a­rate en­tity
