In addition to the Southern Hemisphere launch of the new carbon-infused Catana 47, Multihull Solutions will also stage the Australasian launch of the brand new Fountaine Pajot Salina 48 Evolution at 2012 Sanctuary Cove Boat Show from 24-27 May.
With upgrades inspired by Fountaine Pajot’s exclusive Flagship range, the exciting new Salina 48 Evolution replaces the Salina 48, and was strategically planned to impress with a stunning new interior design with an impressive owners ensuite, upgraded galley and new colour scheme.
Emulating a gourmet commercial kitchen, the Salina 48 Evolution’s galley is a dream for offshore entertaining. With dark Corian benchtops, a four-burner stainless steel stove, brushed stainless steel sink, bar, customised timber cabinetry and excellent storage, the galley sets new standards in marine design.
Priced from AUD$925,000, the Salina 48 Evolution also features an improved saloon with an elegant dining table that seats eight guests, which converts to a coffee table to optimise the spacious lounge area.
Space and storage capacities have been maximised in the hulls’ passageways, while larger portholes afford even more natural light and panoramic views.
A redesigned, raised steering station is fully protected from the elements and seats three people while offering direct, ergonomic access to the cockpit. With the cockpit, saloon and steering station seamlessly integrated, the Salina 48 Evolution enables the helmsman and guests to enjoy easy, uninterrupted communication.
Like its predecessor, the Salina 48 Evolution is an extremely capable offshore catamaran, ideally suited to blue water cruising with an emphasis on stability, comfort, safety and spaciousness. Like the full range of Fountaine Pajot Catamarans, the Salina 48 Evolution’s construction makes it virtually unsinkable.
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 136m2 sail plan performs very effectively with minimal pitch in more choppy conditions.
The Salina 48 Evolution has been manufactured with new technology including an infused sandwich composite hull from the best vinylester resigns plus a deckhouse moulded with new RTM eco-technology.
A decadent sunbathing deck at the aft of the Salina 48 Evolution enjoys exceptional protection from the elements while underway and provides yet another idyllic setting for relaxation.
