** 2020 BEST CHARTER BOAT (Cruising World awards) **

Climb aboard the Elba 45 and enter the boldly modern, bright, spacious world of the latest cruising catamaran by Fountaine Pajot. This incredible new model was officially launched at the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival and has already had a huge amount of sales worldwide while sweeping prestigious industry awards.

The Elba 45 has many updated features from its predecessor, the Helia 44,  including an updated helm station for better maneuvrability, excellent sail area / weight ratio of 8.75 sqm/t and an optimised hull which is designed for 10 per cent less drag.

The Elba 45 boasts energetic lines and inverted bows,  accommodating incredible interior living spaces that make her truly astonishing. The saloon and galley area of the Elba 45 has been completely redesigned, with new rounded corners throughout, modern colour range and large, comfortable interior living areas with plenty of storage.

The new large opening window forward provides incredible ventilation and easy communication with the forward cockpit. The outstanding owner’s suite has to be seen to believed; its luxurious walk-in shower and separate head complement the generous storage, luminosity and serene spaciousness of the main cabin.
