The main element of reliability and safety of Fountaine Pajot catamarans is presence of waterproof partitions and floodability.
Floodability is provided by reserve buoyancy, which is situated in stern and forward hull ends. In such vessels the reserve buoyancy is much higher than prescribed norms.
Stern compartments of hull are hermetically isolated with special waterproof partitions.
If it is a blow and the leak is formed, water will get only in forepick, and catamaran will remain operated and will continue traffic.
