Fountaine Pajot Aura 51 (2022) 'Vienna'Gallery
Fountaine Pajot Aura 51 luxury crewed yacht
Fountaine Pajot Aura 51 – THE YACHT
Vienna is brand new for the 2023 season and she is the first Fountaine Pajot Aura 51 Catamaran in luxury crewed yacht charter in the BVI. The Aura 51 is the most modern catamaran design available today, exquisitely and innovatively designed by the Beret Racoupeau design group and built by Fountaine Pajot – one of the largest and most renowned French catamaran builders in the world.
A five-star luxury sailing yacht that moves through beautiful seascapes so that you never tire of the views. Intimate and immaculate en suite accommodation, contemporary French design, an abundance of comfortable spaces throughout to kick back and relax, all the water toys you could wish for, al fresco dining with full-service breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is Vienna …
Vienna has over 3000 sq. ft of living space across three levels above and below decks. With four en suite staterooms, accommodating up to 8 guests – all with TV, stereo and air conditioning – the accommodation would rate a solid 5 on Tripadvisor. The saloon has a centre island dividing the galley on the port side from the dining table on the starboard side. There is also a lounge seat and chaise longue in the saloon – perfect for reading or having a morning coffee.
Fountaine Pajot Aura 51 – ABOVE DECKS
The saloon opens completely and seamlessly to the cockpit for picture-perfect dining around the large cockpit table and cockpit seating for fifteen or more. A few steps up to the helm position brings you to the large lounge area on the bridge deck where the generous social seating arrangement and a sunbathing deck provide a fabulous location from which to take in the surrounding tropical beauty – cocktail or coffee in hand.
Aft of the cockpit, wide transom steps and transom ladders give easy access to the cobalt Caribbean waters. There is also a ‘tender lift’- a platform between the two hull transoms that doubles as storage for the dinghy and a submersible dive and swim platform when lowered. Moving forward along the expansive and open side decks gives access to the foredeck seating area and bow trampolines – a great spot from which to catch up on chat with friends or immerse yourself in a good read.
TRANQUILITY or ADRENALINE or BOTH.
With a meticulous eye for detail, the Austrian owner has loaded Vienna with every conceivable option aboard and added an array of watersports equipment that would keep the most ardent enthusiast entertained. Everything is at your disposal from adrenaline-fueled sports like kiting, wing foiling, water skiing, and wakeboarding to biking, paddleboarding, kayaking, drift diving or snorkelling!
However, this luxury catamaran is just as much about providing respite from the daily grind if getting off the grid and relaxing aboard under sail or ashore in tranquil bays is more your style.
If you love relaxing on a beach, reading a book or just watching the world go by, without a worry in the world, if you dream of swimming in crystal clear water and feeling the fine dernier sand between your toes as you marvel at the iridescent colours of the juvenile damsel fish, then Vienna is for you.
Whether you want to “learn the ropes” of sailing, learn a knot, learn a lot, take the helm or leave the sailing to the well-qualified Captain and crew, the choice is yours.
Vegan? Vegetarian? Pescatarian? Omnivore? Tea total or wine connoisseur? Caffeine-free or caffeine required! A preference for freshly ground beans – Italian, Ethiopian, Columbian? Freshly squeezed orange juice or shaken not stirred martini? Just let the Crew know.
Talk directly with the Chef before your trip and discuss your dietary preferences and requirements, Chef will incorporate your favourite ingredients, flavours and dishes with a twist throughout the menus. If you want to taste local fresh fruits with a stack of pancakes, or ‘Full English’ at breakfast, or indulge in local favourites like barbequed Lobster and Red Snapper Creole in the evening, just let Chef know.
You can choose to eat aboard on a ‘full board’ or ‘half board’ plan or anywhere in between – simply discuss the options for eating ashore with the crew, and the itinerary (and rate) will be customised so you eat where you want and when you want, weather permitting (which it generally does!).
Have we forgotten something? Then give our Crewed Yacht Manager, Kayleigh a call. Born in the BVI to British parents who both worked in the BVI marine industry, Kayleigh’s background in the catering and marine industries means you are in exceptionally knowledgeable and experienced hands!

Your Crew onboard Vienna
Valentina and Simone are both Italian, born and raised in Rome.
They met whilst working in a digital marketing agency and then moved to Ireland together where they gained extensive experience in various large multinational firms. Moving from Rome to Dublin was not their biggest change in life, as this happened a few years later, when they chose to live and work at sea.
Ever since they have been having the time of their lives, while working they have built up their extensive experience and their passion for the yachting industry has grown. They are looking forward to bringing their skills onboard Vienna.
Valentina was introduced to sailing at the tender age of 9. She attended the French sailing school “Les Glénans”, took her RYA sailing qualifications in Portugal, France and Gibraltar and crossed the Atlantic ocean with the ARC+ Rally. She is also an RYA Sailing Instructor, with 15 years of experience in the yachting industry, there’s no better person to show you the ropes and introduce you to the sailing world!
While Simone will share his passion for food with you!
As a child, Simone loved to help his grandmother cook and to this day he is still discovering the secrets of his family’s recipes. However, his culinary knowledge is not limited to Italy, having worked across the Mediterranean on multiple yachts, and spent 7 months travelling in South America, as well as Vietnam and Namibia, he has picked up flavours from around the world.
He’s also an RYA Day Skipper and when not busy in the galley you’ll find him working on deck, hoisting the sails or dropping the anchor.
Valentina and Simone both have their powerboat licences and all the necessary experience to take guests ashore to explore, have a desert island lunch or be whizzed around the bay on one of the many water toys aboard. They also enjoy recharging their batteries with yoga so why not join them for a sunset session on board.
When Valentina and Simone took this path, they had two goals in mind: to make their guests happy, and to learn every day from their guests and the fantastic community of people working in the sailing world!
