Fountaine Pajot is delighted to share with you the first photo report of the Astréa 42.

Our new 2018 boat will be shown at the Sydney boat show in August, at the Cannes Yachting Festival, at the Grand Pavois La Rochelle, in Genoa, Annapolis, Barcelona, then Paris, Dusseldorf, and will then continue her route all over the world.

The Astréa 42 by Fountaine Pajot Sailing Catamarans is distinguished by its abundance of natural light, energetic lines, elegant living spaces and unparalleled comfort, while delivering sheer pleasure underway. A joy to share as a couple or with family and friends, this new catamaran promises every leg of your travels will be memorable.

The Astréa 42 demonstrates the boatyard’s commitment to innovation while preserving the classic identity of the Fountaine Pajot sailing catamarans’ range. She features all the elements that contributed to making our latest new boat, the Saona 47, an international success. Her inverted bow, the new signature mark of the range, gives the boat an elegant and dynamic line while offering incomparable interior space.

Enjoy the Sea to its Fullest!

• The Astréa 42 was conceived and designed to facilitate free-flowing movement throughout the boat, as well as linking the helm station with the outdoor relaxation and living spaces from coachroof to cockpit.

• The coachroof features a double seat at the helm station and a built-in sun lounger for enjoying idyllic days together.

• The spacious cockpit, equipped with an optional integrated plancha grill, is the perfect place to relax and feel at one with the sea, enhanced by the Beach Club option that provides an embedded gangway flush with her line.

• The incredibly comfortable lounge has been designed with expansive panoramic windows that bathe the interior in natural light. Her U-shaped galley transitions seamlessly with the cockpit courtesy of a vast sliding pocket door.

• Available in two versions – Owner and Quatuor – with 12 bathroom layout options, the Astréa 42 has everything needed to fulfil your casual or extended cruising dreams. This is a catamaran that makes you feel proud to be a member of the Fountaine Pajot family.
