Fountaine Pajot Elba 45


Elba 45’s first hull didn’t even leave the factory when Fountaine Pajot received over a hundred bids for this sailing catamaran just by announcing their plans to build it. Aerodynamic design by Olivier Racoupeau features pushed back front windows and a gentle curvature of the coachroof. Full glazing of the interior is complemented by ceiling hatches and flybridge seating space has been tripled.

Improved design for better performance

The developers paid a lot of attention to the appearance of the cruising catamaran, but most of these improvements also work to improve its performance. Among these innovations are:

  • reverse inclination of the stems for better performance;
  • new design of the control post for ease of movement;
  • optimization of the control area with the installation of 3 winches at an ideal distance for comfortable work;
  • the internal navigation post has been moved closer to the steering wheel and the external steering post;
  • adding a chin at the rear, which improves the stability of the Elba 45.

As with other models of Fountaine Pajot, the hull was assembled using a vacuum infusion process to prevent osmosis. Shipyard uses polyester and vinylester resin over glass, with a final coat of epoxy primer under the antifouling.

Floating island with all amenities

Fountaine Pajot gives its catamarans the names of the islands, emphasizing their self-sufficiency with full autonomy and harmony with nature. It should be noted that this is a very comfortable island for everyone who decides to settle on it. Here everyone will find either a cozy place in the company of friends, or desired privacy and solitude.

The amount of open space is impressive. You can dine or relax in the cockpit, where there are comfortable sofas and sun loungers, you can sunbathe and drink coffee on the flybridge, sunbathe on the huge bow deck area with cushions and a trampoline. Or you can sit at the built-in grill or barbecue, next to which there is a seat on the transom.

The spacious cockpit flows smoothly into the salon with a large table for 8-12 people and a luxurious sofa. Panoramic doors and windows are installed between the salon and the cockpit, uniting both of these spaces, flooding them with natural light and providing excellent views.

A wide platform on the transom can be used both for loading operations, including using a dinghy, and for sunbathing and diving in the open sea.

Cabins are available in two options. For commercial voyages, it is better to purchase a cruising sailing catamaran Elba 45 in the Quatuor version, which provides 4 double cabins and 4 showers. And if you are buying this island for your own pleasure - choose the Maestro version. You will receive for your personal use: a deluxe cabin with a Queensize island bed, a bathroom, a shower and toilet, an office and a dressing room. For guests there are two double cabins with private bathrooms.
