Elba 45, a resourceful sailing catamaran

What's thrilling about this new Fountaine Pajot model?

Not only does Elba 45 present all the latest shipyard innovative characteristics, it surpasses the industry standards.

Oustanding features of Fountaine Pajot Elba 45

A convivial yacht

Where would you rather relax on your boat in the Caribbean?

Many of our clients love the large flybridge, which was also implemented on the previous Fountaine Pajot model Saona 47. Whether you would like to just sit and feel the breeze, enjoy a romantic dinner when anchoring or share drinks with friends, the flybridge is very generous for a yacht this size. The wide sunbed is also brilliant to soak up some sun, read a good book or enjoy a little siesta!

You will appreciate the many possibilities offered by the ingenious cockpit, with several sofas, sunbed, benches and the long dinner table. The lounge deck also features a exceptional relaxing and sunbed space with many large cushions.

But that's not all: A  brilliant Beach Club electric platform is available as a Fountaine Pajot option, to bring further fun and space for the crew!


Living aboard Elba 45

Fountaine Pajot is a pioneer in terms of comfort aboard cruising catamarans. The design of its models benefits from all new material and building techniques as well as being on the cutting edge to adapt to new sailor lifestyles.

This new 45' cat presents a modern and elegant design to suit today's tastes. Standard colors of this model will suit most owners, and optional Fountaine Pajot colors are available for upholstery, floors and all canvasses.

Large windows and hatches bring a lot of natural light inside the boat, whether in the saloon or in both hulls. The panoramic view from the lounge is just stunning. Large windows also open for natural ventilation.
