Fountaine Pajot Astréa 42 (2019) 'Brown Eyed Girl'Gallery
The Fountaine Pajot Astréa 42 Features:
The Astréa 42 is distinguished by its abundance of natural light, energetic lines, elegant living spaces and unparalleled comfort while delivering sheer pleasure underway. A joy to share as a couple or with family and friends, this new catamaran promises every leg of your travels will be memorable.
The Astréa 42 demonstrates the boatyard’s commitment to innovation while preserving the classic identity of the Fountaine Pajot sailing catamarans’ range. She features all the elements that contributed to making our latest new boat, the Fountaine Pajot Saona 47, an international success. Her inverted bow, the new signature mark of the range, gives the boat an elegant and dynamic line while offering incomparable interior space.
The new Astréa 42 was awarded “2018 Multihull of the Year” by Le Monde du Multi and the famous French magazine Voile.
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 plancha grill, 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.
This yacht also benefits from a single/crew cabin port forward, and the salon area also converts into a double bed.

Find Your Rate
Did you know Horizon’s charters start and finish at noon, which means we can get you out sailing your first afternoon after your briefings and you sail back to our dock to debrief and refuel before your noon departure? This gives you a full 6 nights/7 days chartering around our beautiful islands, unlike some companies that start at 5pm, meaning you will have to sleepaboard* at the docks, and then finish at 10am, again meaning you will probably have to stay overnight on the docks the night before you leave to fly home.
*If available, a sleep aboard can be added the night before your charter start for a small supplement, boarding your yacht after 5pm.
Weekly rates (full 7 days / 6 nights) listed above daily rates. Charters start and finish at noon. Our minimum charter duration requirement is 5 nights.
BVI Charter Rates are subject to change without notice.
