NEW CATS - Salina 48 Evolution
French catamaran-builder Fountaine Pajot announces Salina 48 upgrade
With upgrades inspired by its Flagship range, Fountaine Pajot has announced the launch of the Salina 48 Evolution, its replacement for the Salina 48, featuring new interior design, improved helm station, upgraded galley and roomier hulls.
The French yard
said the Salina 48 Evolution’s galley "sets new standards in marine design" emulating a gourmet commercial kitchen, consisting of dark Corian benchtops, a four-burner stainless steel stove, brushed stainless steel sink, bar, customised timber cabinetry and excellent storage.
Priced from $975,000, Australian distributor Multihull Solutions said the 48 Evolution also features an improved saloon with eight-person dining table, which converts to a coffee table to optimise the spacious lounge area.
Among other changes, the cat’s hulls have been redesigned to maximise space and storage in the passageways, while larger portholes afford more natural light and views. A redesigned, raised steering station is fully protected from the sun and seats three, with direct access to the cockpit, plus a transom sunbed.
Also, with the cockpit, saloon and steering station seamlessly integrated, the Salina 48 Evolution enables the helmsman and guests to enjoy uninterrupted communication.
Fountaine Pajot said the Salina 48 Evolution, like its predecessor, is an extremely capable offshore catamaran, ideally suited to bluewater cruising, with an emphasis on stability, comfort, safety and spaciousness.
The Salina 48 Evolution is available in two versions: The Quatuor, comprising four cabins and four bathrooms; and, the Maestro, with private owner’s suite and bathroom
separate to the guest accommodation.
