Fountaine Pajot’s latest sailing catamaran, the Astréa 42, has won a major international marine award being voted “Multihull of the Year” by the prestigious French Voile magazine and Le Monde du Multicoque.

Multihull Solutions says, The new catamaran is distinguished by its abundance of natural light, energetic lines, elegant living spaces and unparalleled comfort, while delivering sheer pleasure underway.
"The catamaran features all the elements that contributed to making the shipyard’s recent release, the Saona 47, an international success. The Astréa 42 features an inverted bow, which gives the boat an elegant and dynamic line while offering incomparable interior space."
"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 helmstation and a built-in sun lounger. The spacious cockpit, equipped with an optional integrated plancha grill, is the perfect place to relax and feel at one with the sea, and also offers a Beach Club option that provides an embedded gangway.
"The decadent saloon 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."
The catamaran is available in two versions – Owner and Quatuor – with 12 bathroom layout options, making it ideal for private or commercial use.
