The Aura 51 marks a new stage in the evolution of the Fountaine Pajot Sailing Catamarans range and the desire of the shipyard in La Rochelle to go further in its environmental approach.
A new deck design that’s easier to move around
The deck layout of the Aura 51, which has been completely redesigned, marks a new era for the Fountaine Pajot range and provides even more space and comfort. A great new feature for this 51-foot cruising catamaran is its complete opening between the saloon and the cockpit. An innovation that facilitates communication between the galley and the large cockpit table, and which will offer you an even greater feeling of freedom and space, characteristic of the Fountaine Pajot range.
Renewable energy with large capacity
The Fountaine Pajot design office, in collaboration with the Olivier Racoupeau Design team of naval architects, imagined the Aura 51 to be able to accommodate a large surface area of solar panels without compromising on design.
Its large flybridge, with its friendly lounge and sunbathing area, is fitted with solar panels that are totally flush-decked, integrating with the lines, capable of producing 2000 watts of renewable energy. A successful gamble that allows the Aura 51 to generate five times more solar energy than other yachts equipped with solar panels.
Space and a multitude of layouts including a 6-cabin/6-bathroom version
To suit the greatest number of people, the Aura 51 adapts to your desires and your cruising needs, available in 4 different layouts. Each cabin has its own bathroom area, including the 6-cabin version – a first on the catamaran market for a 51-foot model, as is the double Maestro version, another yard exclusive. The Full Maestro version offers a huge owner’s cabin in the entire port hull.

If you can sell over 150 catamarans off-plan before construction has even begun, you have the confidence of your owners. Fountaine Pajot’s new 51 has achieved just that, and it is perhaps one of the most extraordinary marketing feats in modern boatbuilding. So when the chance came to sneak an... read moreSam Fortescue
