Fountaine Pajot Salina

This new model from Fountaine Pajot has more living space than many 55ft multihulls in its class. Cockpit, saloon and galley are all on one level, bringing a new level of comfort and safety to cruising. 

With 10+ knots performance, this is a true blue water catamaran and ideal for families. 
 The Salina 48 has been designed to the most demanding list of specifications by architects Berret/Racoupeau. An extremely capable offshore catamaran, the Salina 48 is ideally suited to blue water cruising with an emphasis on stability, comfort, safety and spaciousness with all living areas on one level. Its length (48'/14.30 m) gives it a slender shape with a very low centre of gravity for optimal comfort and safety at sea while Its 136 m2 sail plan performs very effectively without any pitch in more choppy conditions. With a clean and obstacle-free deck, the Salina 48 affords easy movement and safe handling with an integrated saloon and cockpit that has generous entry access. There is ample room at the raised helm station to accommodate three people and all manoeuvring is conveniently controlled from this one central location. The Salina 48 has been manufactured with new technology including an infused sandwich composite hull plus a deckhouse moulded with new RTM eco-technology. The catamaran is ideal for convivial entertaining with its social areas comprising a card table facing the sea, an L-shaped kitchen featuring a revolutionary new refrigeration system, an indoor and outdoor dining table plus exterior corner lounge. A decadent sunbathing deck at the aft of the Salina 48 enjoys exceptional protection from the elements while underway and provides yet another idyllic setting for relaxation. Each of the cabins boast magnificent sea views from the spacious portholes while the low beds, private bathrooms with separate showers and passageways without thresholds enhance the vessel's appeal.
