Pamina, 112' Pilothouse Sloop
PAMINA is a yacht of timeless beauty and understated elegance. She combines state-of-the-art technology and yacht building advances with classical lines, proportions and styling.
PAMINA's exterior aesthetic reflects the Ted Fontaine's prior design successes, especially SURAMA and ANAKENA, but highlights relatively longer overhangs and the elegance of a sloop rig. 360-visibility is outstanding from inside the pilothouse, and unlike in many pilothouse yachts, the helmsman has an unobstructed view from either of the twin helm stations over the pilothouse roof to the bow.
The deck layout is particularly clean and elegant. Thanks to the central ventilation/air conditioning/heating system, and the 13 deck hatches, 21 opening hull ports, and 3 large companionways which provide natural ventilation, the need for traditional dorade vents has been eliminated. The owner's cockpit aft, with dodger and retracting bimini, offers a gracious retreat for a quiet breakfast or an especially comfortable seating spot while under sail.
PAMINA's interior arrangement maximizes utilization of space, convenience, movement through the yacht, and privacy for guests and crew. The glowing all-teak finish and classic simplicity of styling are complemented by luxurious upholstery fabrics including Alcantara, leather, Pierre Frey cottons, and Jim Thompson silk.
The focal point of the yacht is the large air-conditioned pilothouse, which offers comfortable seating for 10 to port, and an interior helm/communications station and mini settee for 3 to starboard. The lower salon includes two additional large seating areas, a bar, and a day head.
PAMINA sleeps up to 8 owners and guests in 3 staterooms located aft of the helm, off a private stair and hallway, separated from the crew and service areas of the yacht. Crew accommodations for 5 in 3 cabins are located forward.
Thanks to her ultra-modern keel form, towering 4-spreader carbon fiber rig, and full-batten Spectra mainsail, PAMINA's performance under sail is outstanding. Her furling boom and captive reel winches make short-handed sailing practical, efficient, and safe.
The yacht's propulsion and power generation systems have been installed for supremely quiet and smooth operation. Diesel fuel tankage provides a range while motoring in excess of 3,000 nautical miles, far beyond normal standards for a sailing yacht of this type. If necessary, for example, PAMINA can power from Falmouth, England to Newport, Rhode Island without refueling.
PAMINA's large engine room, most of which has full standing height, is air conditioned and includes a workbench with sink and vise, stereo system, extensive tool storage, many technical features to facilitate the engineer's job, and entrances to the interior of the yacht and on deck. Extreme care has been taken to ensure that all systems and components are readily accessible for efficient routine maintenance and service.
Every aspect of PAMINA's engineering, equipment, and construction represents state-of-the art materials and the highest quality available.
