Fountaine Pajot’s latest sailing catamaran, the Astréa 42, has been voted ‘Multihull of the Year’ by the prestigious French Voile magazine and Le Monde du Multicoque.

Since its April launch at the Grand La Motte boat show in France, Multihull Solutions, Fountaine Pajot’s Asia-Pacific dealer, has already taken more than 10 orders for the Astréa 42.

The cat features an inverted bow, which gives the boat an elegant and dynamic line while offering incomparable interior space. It is distinguished by an abundance of natural light, energetic lines, elegant living spaces and unparalleled comfort.

The coachroof features a double seat at the helm station and a builtin sun lounger. The spacious cockpit is the perfect place to relax and also offers a Beach Club option with an embedded gangway.

The saloon has expansive panoramic windows and the U-shaped galley transitions seamlessly with the cockpit, courtesy of a vast sliding pocket door.

The Astréa 42 is available in Owner and Quatuor versions, each with numerous bathroom layout options, and is priced from AUD $650,000 ex-factory in France or AUD $900,000 landed in Australia with all taxes paid and essential options included.
