Encompassing the finest signature features of the Fountaine Pajot shipyard, the Astréa 42 is based upon the highly popular design of the Saona 47, and her distinctive design, strong lines and timeless elegance under sail or at anchor. The Astréa 42 is expertly designed with voluminous living space and outstanding performance while remaining easy to handle.

The expansive cockpit is intelligently designed for entertaining and features a spacious aft platform to easily facilitate a host of leisure activities. Immerse yourself in your spectacular surroundings on the foredeck’s huge sun lounge, or share in the cruising experience at the helm station as you unwind and enjoy the panoramic views of the stunning waters around you.


With a reversed bow and an innovative roof design, the Astréa 42 is in a class all its own. At the helm station, you’ll enjoy an integrated lounge deck and a double seat to enjoy a cold drink and spectacular sunsets. The cockpit features comfortable seating and the same spacious entrance as the Saona 47. The galley is U-shaped with plenty of storage while the exquisitely crafted saloon is bathed in bright natural light, and features deep, comfortable seating.

Available in two layouts, you can choose a 3-cabin Maestro version featuring a decadent master suite that occupies an entire hull complete with a luxurious en-suite with a walk-in shower, with two generous guest cabins in the port hull that each enjoys their own exclusive en-suites.  The Quatuor version of the 42  features four identical cabins, each with its own ensuite with 9 layout possibilities possible to satisfy every taste.

The Astréa 42 cruising catamaran has been meticulously designed to offer intuitive responsiveness at the wheel and unparalleled performance in all conditions. Her optimized weight-to-volume ratio delivers exceptional balance and stability for an unforgettable sailing experience at any speed.

The 42 is an exceptional catamaran that incorporates elegance and performance in every aspect of its dynamic design.
