The 2021 Fountaine Pajot Astréa 42 is outstanding in encouraging interaction between the helm and everyone on board. The elevated, double-seated, helm station is almost the centrepiece of the cleverly designed outdoor living space and offers a flowing dynamic between cockpit and helm.

Offset to starboard and comfortably seating two, it is accessed by a small flight of stairs it is configured so that there is easy communication between the helm and crew below.

Additionally on the coach roof, right next to the helm is a built-in sun lounger which enhances the interaction between the helm and relaxing sun-worshippers.

The spacious cockpit is the perfect place to relax and entertain. A generous bench settee with backrests along the transom and the port side L-shaped settee around the table happily seats everybody. There is also a recliner bench seat for lounging to the 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.

And do not forget the very neat electric tender-lift, which not only makes handling the dinghy effortless but also lowers to provide an enticing swim-up bathing platform. The ‘Beach Club’ as it is affectionately known.



The incredibly comfortable lounge is designed with expansive panoramic windows that bathe the interior in natural light. Forward to port, is the angled navigation station, with its seat integrated into the comfortable L-shaped settee around the table.

Her U-shaped galley transitions seamlessly with the cockpit courtesy of a vast fully retractable sliding door and window. With 3 burner stove, double sinks and fridge the galley is neat and tidy and has a lovely counter height oven for easy use.

As with other FP’s the 2021 Fountaine Pajot Astréa 42’s available in multiple cabin configurations, This is the three-cabin version which offers large aft cabins with an en-suite bathroom and the forward cabin almost identical with a slightly smaller bathroom. Large hull windows and hatches bring plenty of natural light.

The styling feels modern, light and contemporary and enhances this very classy spacious accommodation space.



The sails are operated using three winches atop the coach roof forward of the helm. The mainsail and genoa winches are electric. There is a neat tail storage bag for excess rope and a passageway separates the helm-station from the sail control area 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.

The genoa is sheeted through cars on the coach roof giving decent sailing angles upwind.

Under power, the 40HP upgraded engines offer efficient cruising at over 6.5 knots and plenty of control when close-quarter manoeuvring.
