Fountaine Pajot’s stunning new Saona 47 sailing catamaran has won the category of “Best Multihull Sailing Yacht Under 15m” at the inaugural Christofle Yacht Style Awards.
The awards, which recognise the very best of the yachting industry in Asia and internationally, were announced in early January at a gala ceremony at Phuket Boat Lagoon attended by a swag of yachting VIPs and industry dignitaries.
The ceremony coincided with the opening day of the new Phuket Rendezvous Boat Show, with both events serving to confirm Phuket’s status as southeast Asia’s yachting hub.
Launched in 2017, the Saona 47 has garnered critical international acclaim for its remarkable space, safety, comfort and powerful performance in all conditions.
Encompassing the finest signature features of the Fountaine Pajot shipyard, the Saona 47 exudes a striking aura with her distinctive design, strong lines and timeless elegance under sail or at anchor.
The catamaran boasts incomparable levels of living space including a huge open-plan cockpit designed for entertaining with integrated BBQ and an innovative new tender lift that doubles as a swimming platform. The foredeck has been fitted with a decadent sun lounger, while the expansive 9m2 lounge deck is a sublime retreat for relaxing and taking in the spectacular surrounds.
The 47’s exquisitely crafted saloon is bathed in bright natural light, and her comprehensively equipped ambient galley has an island bench plus an abundance of storage making it ideal for extended cruising.
The catamaran is available in two layouts, including a three-cabin Owner version featuring a decadent master suite that occupies an entire hull complete with a luxurious ensuite with Italian-style shower, with two generous guest cabins in the port hull that each enjoy their own exclusive ensuites. The Saona 47 is also available in a five-cabin charter version with private ensuites to the four double guest cabins as well as to the convenient crew quarters.
The Saona 47 has been meticulously designed to offer intuitive responsiveness at the wheel and unparalleled performance in all conditions. Her optimised weight-to-volume ratio delivers exceptional balance and stability for an unforgettable sailing experience at any speed.
