Fountaine Pajot 42
PRICE: $250,000 USD
Currently lying in Langkawi, Rebak Island. Malaysia.
Fountaine Pajot Venezias are widely regarded in the industry as one of the best blue water catamarans ever produced.
With little use over the COVID period, she was based in Phuket, and is now in Duty Free Langkawi, and ready for the market. Her engines were new in 2015, she has Marine ducted Air conditioning, a 220 Ltr hour watermaker, a fibreglass hardtop over the cockpit, and the full set of sails, including Screecher, genoa and main were new in 2018 and are little used!
This boat is a proven world cruiser, having covered 10,000's of miles across the globe.
She represents the ultimate blend of comfort, safety and performance in a cruising boat.
She performs well in light winds, yet also handles exceptionally well in heavy weather. Her excellent bridge deck clearance, hull volume ratios and simple sail set up make her a safe and pleasant sail in heavy conditions.
The Venezia 42 has an all foam core fibreglass construction with solid fibreglass around key stress points, including the bottom of the hulls. This makes her strong and stiff at the same time, with a light ships of 7000kg, all explaining her excellent sail performance.
The Venezia 42 also has integral foam crash bulkheads and sacrificial mini keels which can detach in the event of collision. The engines are in self contained water-tight compartments and sit above the waterline preventing engine immersion in the instance of hull breach.
The layout of the boat is spacious and has been very well thought through. This boat represents the 4 cabin version, with each cabin en-suited. The port aft head has been converted to a dedicated shower cubicle.
Cabins are extremely spacious with true size double bunks and large wardrobes. Upstairs contains a
spacious and well set up galley with large top-access fridge and freezer, and a large saloon with a table that can comfortably seat 8 people. Another large table in the cockpit can seat 6 people for outdoor dining. With ducted air-conditioning, when needed in ports, and the open sliding doors molding together the outside and inside living spaces, she makes for a comfortable and inclusive experience for relaxation, entertainment, or serious sailing.
