Euro Yacht Sail - Fountaine Pajot Astrea 42
Fountaine Pajot Astrea 42

The one organized at the D-Marin Punta Faro Resort is
an unmissable weekend
to be able to see and touch – by climbing aboard – as many as 8 different models of boats signed Dufour and Fountaine Pajot. Four sail monohulls from the Dufour range (Dufour 37, 390, 430 e 470), two sailing catamarans from the Fountaine Pajot range(Astréa 42 and Elba 45) and also two motor catamarans from Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts(MY6 and Power 67).

These are very different boats, ranging from the Dufour 37 – the 9.99-meter-long “supercruiser” (hull length) – to theElba 45 – a 13-meter catamaran with a flybridge and sporty lines, also available with a 4-double-cabin, 4-bathroom layout. Introducing them to the public is the official importer Euro Sail Yacht based in Lignano Sabbiadoro, which has been working with the Fountaine Pajot Group for 13 years, offering Dufour-branded monohulls and Fountaine Pajot-branded catamarans (sail and motor) to the Italian market. The boats to be visited during the weekend are all available for immediate delivery.

Two of the boats you will find on display

Dufour 37

Dufour 37 - Esterni 3

This design is in part an evolution of the previous Dufour 360, but comprehensively rethought somewhat in all aspects: the new model is 20 cm wider, thus has a more comfortable interior and more sail area, but also a larger cockpit and rethought light points. Indeed, on the side, the Dufour 37 has a long continuous window, as well as on the deckhouse. In terms of appendages, the boat has an L-shaped keel and a single rudder, and the rigging layout, on the other hand, has 4 winches, with all rigging running within sight and halyard stoppers on the paramare.

Elba 45

Euro Yacht Sail - Fountaine Pajot Elba 45

Distinctive feature of the Elba 45 is the flybridge area, which on this catamaran is really beautiful. Find here a driver’s station and a very large sunbathing area, with plenty of space and sofas arranged on three sides. Inside the Elba 45 the classic nautical spaces are actually large, with one of the largest lounge areas in its class, the owner’s suite, and breathtakingly large guest rooms. The 8.5-square-meter lounging areas at the front of the boat are ideal for enjoying the beauty of the sea in the most relaxed way possible. Aboard this catamaran you will never feel the need for space, but you won’t have to sacrifice the pleasure of sailing! The energizing line of its inverted bows, in fact, gives excitement even while sailing.
