Luxury catamaran charter in the Algarve: Fontaine Pajot Lucia 40


Witness the unique coastline of Southern Portugal from an exclusive perspective on this catamaran charter in the Algarve.

Our Fontaine Pajot Lucia 40, Summer Sun, is a state-of-the-art sailing catamaran with 4 spacious double cabins, each with their own private bathrooms and a convertible double berth in the saloon.

The generous kitchen and interior living space means you don’t need to sacrifice luxury and comfort to be on the water and have the best views in Southern Portugal!

For the perfect catamaran charter in the Algarve, this Fontaine Pajot Lucia 40 includes all the essentials to make your holiday on the sea both relaxing and indulgent.

The comfortable exterior dining area in the cockpit lends to breakfasts with a swim. Plush cushions on the foredeck and the bluetooth speaker system invite sunbathers throughout the day.

A fully stocked kitchen ensures that you are never without a bottle opener, a strainer for your pasta, or a cup for your expresso while on charter.

This catamaran also comes with a tender support boat for exploring the many sea caves and grottos that dot the southern coast of Portugal.

The electric mainsail winch and self-tacking foresail make navigating undersail a breeze and only adds to the ambiance of a week at sea. With your sails set right, cruising speed on a beam reach with our typical afternoon land breeze can easily reach 8 knots.

This charter catamaran has a shallow draft of only 1.2m allowing you to get closer to that empty beach and not worry about deeper underwater hazards.

Double berths complete with electrics and fresh water are available at each of the world-renowned marinas found across the Algarve.

Of course, all our boats are fully equipped for coastal sailing, complete with safety equipment, navigation equipment, chartplotter, and AIS.

If you are new to sailing, or want someone else to take the helm and the responsibility, we have several charter skippers that know the Algarvian Coast like only a local can.

Your private yacht captain works with you to design a personalized passage plan that appeals to you and makes sure you don’t miss those hidden coves, local delicacies, or unmarked historical ruins.

You can also hire a hostess for your catamaran charter who can prepare meals, and help keep the yacht clean and tidy. You can discuss your food preferences and any restrictions in advance and your cook/hostess can prepare a meal plan that you can shop for together.

If you have a skipper’s license and prefer to only have the company of your family abroad, we will give you an area briefing, recommend our favorite restaurants and give you a thorough yacht briefing so that you know your catamaran’s systems before you set sail. Our base manager is always on stand-by in case you have any trouble or need our help.

Meeting point

Check-in for this sailing charter in the Algarve is usually done at the Portiate Charters office at Marina de Portimão.

However, we can also meet you at other Marinas in the area, like Vilamoura or Lagos, at your convenience.


If renting without a skipper, you must show a valid boating licence and matching identification. 

This boat has not been adapted to be wheelchair accessible.

Bareboat or Skippered

The motorboats can be rented with or without a skipper and/or hostess. To rent a boat without a skipper, you need a valid boating license. Along with a valid boating certificate for the type of boat being chartered and waters navigated, valid identification such as a Passport or National ID Card must be presented.

If you’re hiring bareboat, you will be briefed on where you can navigate and about the boat itself (systems and equipment). Most importantly, we’ll share all of the best locations for anchoring and famous landmarks to see. We’ll also brief you on hazards to avoid, and the wind and waves that you can expect, etc…

If you decide you prefer to rent the boat with a skipper, you’ll be accompanied by one of our skippers who’ll take care of driving the boat and will introduce you to the must-see spots of the coastline of the Algarve. In that case, you might want to check out our day trips.

Booking & Cancelation

To book one of our motor boat rentals in the Algarve we ask for a 50% down payment. This can be done either by bank transfer or via Paypal. The final payment can be done on the day of your rental at our office at the Marina de Portimão. We accept cash, credit, or debit card

Don’t forget that motor boat rentals in the Algarve require a security deposit (500 Euro) which can be paid in cash or card. This deposit will be returned at the end of the charter, in full, as long as the boat and all equipment on it are returned in the same conditions that they were in when taken.

Regarding our cancelation policy for the motor boat rentals, if you would like to cancel the booking up to one month before the rental date, the booking fee will be returned minus 50 Euro. For cancelations within one month of the rental, the booking fee will not be returned. However, cancelations due to governmental travel bans or restrictions will be refunded in full (i.e.: Covid-19 restrictions).
