Astréa 42




The award-winning Astréa 42  is distinguished by its abundance of natural light, energetic lines, elegant living spaces and unparalleled comfort, while delivering sheer pleasure underway.

The Astréa 42 demonstrates the shipyard’s commitment to innovation while preserving the classic identity of the Fountaine Pajot sailing catamarans’ range. 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 BBQ, 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 sailing or extended cruising dreams.
