She is the only catamaran yacht in her class to offer such space and volume in an owner's hull, with her ensuite including a true walk-in shower.

Easy to manoeuvre on your own or with a small crew

The Astréa 42 makes the most of her size to offer an unprecedented level of comfort

When the Fountaine Pajot teams designed this yacht, their objective was clear: to offer the best combination of aesthetics, comfort and seaworthiness in a 42-foot catamaran. The result has exceeded expectations. Not only is her sleek silhouette easy on the eye, but the Astréa 42 is packed with features and fittings that you would typically only find on much larger catamarans. However, at 12.58 metres, she is still very easy to handle, and whoever takes the helm experiences a true connection with the boat while being right next to the sundeck where guests can keep them company. Time to head out to sea!

Her U-shaped galley sets a new benchmark, and an outdoor plancha grill/BBQ is set discreetly above the starboard transom, within convenient proximity to the cockpit table and large aft bench seat. Every feature has been designed to make everyday life easier and, above all, more user-friendly.

The French writer André Gide once said, “You can’t discover a new land without first agreeing to lose sight of every shore for a long time.”

The helm station comfortably accommodates two with a separate area dedicated to manoeuvring and sail trimming. This makes movement to the sun loungers easier and safer. Here, the skipper remains in easy contact the crew, for sharing even more memories together.

  • Innovative, high-tech composite materials constitute most of the structure of our sailing catamarans: hulls, flybridge, decks, bulkheads and more. Fountaine Pajot has perfected a resin injection and infusion technique, an advanced technology that gives our boats all their robustness. Thanks to this expertise, we can make our catamarans considerably lighter while maintaining consistent quality. Injection also makes it possible to meet the most stringent environmental requirements, in line with the commitments of the Fountaine Pajot Group.

  • Sailing catamarans from 40 to 50 feet are built at the Aigrefeuille headquarters, a few kilometres from La Rochelle. Catamaran yachts from 51 to 80 feet are built in La Rochelle, France, where they benefit from a slipway.

  • It is essential to define your sailing program: define the size of the crew on board, the level of sailing knowledge, the sailing project and the target sailing area. Every project is different.

  • The ergonomics of Fountaine Pajot catamarans have been designed to facilitate manoeuvring at the helm, enabling a small crew (2 persons) to manoeuvre the boat easily, both in port and at sea. The unique design of the helm station allows good communication between the aft cockpit and the Fly relaxation areas. Of course, your level of navigation will determine your ability to sail with two or more persons!

  • Our electric catamarans now feature a large surface area of solar panels, up to 2000 WC, perfectly integrated into the design of the coachroof. Combined with equipment such as wind turbines or hydro-generators, they compensate for the energy consumption generated by on-board use during cruising. Discover the benefits of the Smart Electric solution with 4 real-life cruise scenarios

  • The Fountaine Pajot range of electric catamarans is expanding, and now includes 3 Smart Electric models. The Astréa 42, Elba 45 and Aura 51 are now available in this version.

  • With the help of over 70 engineers, Fountaine Pajot has developed an in-house solution, 100% adapted to the use of its catamarans equipped with hybrid electric motors. All on-board production and energy expenditure flows are managed from a single console designed by our teams to offer a simple, designer user experience. The system we have developed enables us to give priority to the use of renewable energies at all times. Find out more here
