Fountaine Pajot has launched a hallmark of elegance and innovation with the brand new Sanya 57 sailing catamaran.

The Sanya 57 is defined by its unique, contemporary design and has been strategically constructed for performance ocean cruising and unforgettably luxurious and safe family holidays.

A true ocean-going catamaran, the Sanya 57 shines with the distinctive comfort, fixtures and services for which Fountaine Pajot’s prestigious Flagship Class is renowned.

Priced from AUD$1.6 million, the Sanya 57 is the remarkable culmination of Fountaine Pajot’s technological advances and innovative concepts, built in association with the Berret Racoupeau design office.

Aesthetics are paramount and the boat’s sleek lines are not compromised by practicality, with the solar panels integrated into the coachroof.

The Lounge Deck is segregated from the helmstation and control lines, ensuring uninterrupted relaxation for guests while still allowing easy communication with the skipper.

The ergonomic steering and maneuvering position affords panoramic visibility with a bimini to protect from inclement weather conditions, and is designed to be unobtrusive of the boat’s living areas. The mainsail control lines are accessible from the coachroof.

The sheltered 25m² cockpit with sugar scoops is a welcoming and ambient area for relaxation. Its exclusive outdoor galley, equipped with sink, refrigerator, generous storage and adjustable table, helps create the perfect summer saloon. With custom-designed protection, it doubles the closed sheltered area, all on the same level.

A remarkable 106m² of living area, all on one level, provides optimal space for enjoying cruises with treasured friends or unwinding in comfort on intimate getaways.

The dining and living room exude a refined yet relaxing ambience, courtesy of the discerning choice of textiles and furnishings, lighting, central island in galley, and the flexibility to customise the area’s layout according to clients’ specific needs. At anchor or at sea, the outstanding panorama is a unique signature of the Sanya 57.

The six-cabin version offers beautifully private guest rooms each featuring sea views and private bathroom. A guest bathroom, accessible via the main saloon, is a thoughtful design feature greatly appreciated when at sea. All cabins and passageways feature the latest in furnishings and fixtures with an impressive contemporary design.

Multihull Solutions managing director Mark Elkington said the Sanya 57 will particularly appeal to cruising enthusiasts who appreciate exemplary quality and design with absolute value for money.

'This is truly a luxury catamaran which combines the finest in construction and build techniques with premium design features,' Mark said.

'With the strong Australian dollar, the Sanya 57 affords a unique opportunity to secure a spectacular cruising catamaran at an outstanding rate.'

Multihull Solutions is the exclusive Australian and New Zealand importer and distributor of Fountaine Pajot catamarans. The company is also the exclusive representative for many of the world’s leading brands including Trawler power catamarans, Sunreef Yachts, Catana, and NEEL Trimarans.

Taming the beast-a conversation with Stuart Meurer of Parker Hannifin
While AC72 cats were fast, they difficult to control, so Oracle partnered with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way. If you watched videos of the AC72s racing in the 34th America’s Cup (2013), you’re familiar with the mind-boggling speeds that are possible when wingsail-powered catamarans switch from displacement sailing to foiling mode. While foiling is fast, there’s no disguising the platform’s inherent instability. Now, Oracle Team USA has teamed up with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way.
