Fountaine Pajot New 51

Fountaine Pajot New 51

The proud successor of the world-renowned Saba 50, the New 51 marks a new stage in the evolution of the Fountaine Pajot Sailing Catamaran range and the desire of the shipyard in La Rochelle to go further in its environmental approach.

Easier Movement About the Deck

The deck of the New 51 has been completely redesigned providing even more space and comfort. A great new feature for this 51-foot cruising catamaran is its complete opening between the saloon and the cockpit facilitating communication between the galley and the large cockpit table.

Renewable Energy with Large Capacity

The Fountaine Pajot design office, in collaboration with the Olivier Racoupeau Design team of naval architects, imagined the New 51 to be able to accommodate a large surface area of solar panels without compromising on design.

Its large flybridge, equipped with a  lounge and sunbathing area, is fitted with solar panels that are capable of producing 2000 watts of renewable energy. This successful gamble allows the New 51 to generate 5 times more solar energy than other yachts equipped with solar panels.

A Multitude of Layouts Including a 6 Cabin / 6 Head Version

The New 51 adapts to your desires and your cruising needs with 4 different layout options. Each cabin has its own bathroom area, including the 6-cabin version – a first on the catamaran market for a 51-foot model, as is the double Maestro version, another yard exclusive. The Full Maestro version offers a huge owner’s cabin in the entire port hull.

The New 51 is undeniably a cruising multihull that is pleasant to live aboard and respectful of its environment.
