The New Fountaine Pajot Elba 45. Setting new standards in the 45-foot luxury catamaran market.
The New Fountaine Pajot Elba 45 had its World premiere in Cannes this September and it is creating new industry standards in the 45-foot luxury catamaran market.

- The forward lounge at the bow, an enormous upper deck fly-bridge, and an expansive sun-bed area on top of the coach roof offer extensive exterior relaxation space.
- An innovative galley layout and the largest saloon in her class, together coupled with abundant light and ultra-modern décor bring exceptional quality to the interior.
- Improved handling and increased comfort for long-distance cruising thanks to the newly designed helm station
- A few of the other highlights include the successful ‘beach club’ tender-lift, integrated BBQ, extended cockpit table and crisp and contemporary styling below

OUTSIDE INTEGRATED LIVING
The Fountaine Pajot Elba 45, as with the Astrea 42, is outstanding in encouraging interaction between the helm and everyone on board. The cleverly designed outdoor living space offers natural flowing dynamic and easy communication between the helm and the cockpit.
The helm is accessed by a small flight of stairs or from the side deck and is offset to starboard. A further set of steps take you to the massive fly-bridge seating area
The new fixed central seat in the middle of the cockpit and the L-shaped settee around the table result in comfortable seating for 8. There is a bench seat across the transom and a seat for lounging to starboard, as well as a fridge under the stairs to the helm for easy access to refreshing drinks.
At the bow, there is another lounge area and trampoline giving a marvellous secluded relaxation area away from the bustle of the cockpit.
Handling the dinghy is made effortless thanks to the very neat optional electric tender lift. This also lowers to provide a generous swim-up bathing platform. The ‘Beach Club’ as it is affectionately known.
OPEN AN INNOVATIVE SALOON
The interior is bathed in natural light thanks to the open design saloon with skylights and high panoramic windows. A large single-opening window forward brings masses of ventilation. The U-shaped lounge settee, with a large centrally located ottoman-style seat, is exceptional and with the option of a low coffee table opens the whole room.
The cockpit, courtesy of a vast fully retractable sliding door and window, transitions seamlessly into the galley. The galley itself extends all along the port side offering generous storage and vast amounts of counter space. The double fridge is to starboard with the counter level oven to port, both set before the central companionways to the hulls.
As with other Fountaine Pajot’s the Elba 45 is available in multiple cabin configurations, including three- and four-cabin layouts and, depending on the version, can all have ensuites.
The three-cabin Maestro version sees the entire port hull configured as a master suite. This comprises a large double island bed aft and a very generous bathroom with a cleverly designed separate shower up front. (as you see on the Saona 47).
The four-cabin version offers large fore and aft double cabins with en-suite bathrooms. Large hull windows and hatches bring plenty of natural light.
SAILING AND HANDLING
All the sail controls come to three winches atop the coach roof forward of the helm. There is a neat tail storage bag for excess rope and the passageway runs in front of the helm station giving plenty of room for the crew to work the lines and keeping the helm station clear.
The mainsheet traveller mounted on the cockpit roof, immediately aft of the helm station helps with trimming the mainsail into its optimum shape. The boom sits relatively low and with the expansive coach-roof stowing the mainsail into its bag is easy. Also with the extended coach roof, there is space for solar panels behind the traveller.
Decent sailing angles upwind are achieved with the Genoa sheeted through cars positioned well inboard on the coach roof. There is an optional bow-sprite and gennaker will enhance the off-wind sailing experience.
VERSATILITY AND CHOICE
There are multiple options for personalization on this 45-foot catamaran. Water-maker, Dishwasher, tender lift, solar panels, upgraded engines, TV, electrical multifunction interior table, and 7 types of upholstery are just some of the options you have to make this fabulous catamaran your very own.
