Top 5 Features onboard this NEVER CHARTERED Fountaine Pajot Saona 47
Catamarans are excellent boats for entertaining guests. But the Fountaine Pajot Saona 47 probably does the best job of maximizing living space. With a 25-foot beam, 4 decks, 3 spacious cabins, 4 heads, and an extra large aft area, this boat is built for comfort and versatility. And with a draft of 4 feet, sheÃ¢â?¬â?¢s ideal for sailing in almost any sailing grounds around the globe!
Sound too good to be true? LetÃ¢â?¬â?¢s dive a little deeper into the benefits of owning this ONE-OF-A-KIND catamaran. Here are the top 5 features onboard this NEVER CHARTERED and meticulously maintainedÃ?Â Fountaine Pajot Saona 47 S/V MTC Actual.
1. Expansive Space for Entertaining
LetÃ¢â?¬â?¢s talk about having space onboard a boat. WeÃ¢â?¬â?¢re talkinÃ¢â?¬â?¢ an extremely comfortable amount of seating, cabins, and deck space to host family and friends on a day sail or sleep 7 people plus crew. ThatÃ¢â?¬â?¢s not easy to come by on a boat less than 50 feet.
MTC Actual features a wide beam and expansive space from the bow to the back deck. A custom hardtop over the helm with a tinted viewing window and 360Ã?Â° cockpit enclosure provides shade from the beating sun, while an easily stowable teak table extension, fridge, ice maker, and barbeque create an excellent space for alfresco dining on the lower deck. A few steps up, the sundeck and helm have plenty of sun loungers (all with new cushions in 2022!) and allow for the captain to socialize with guests while underway.
2. Fun to Operate with a Full Set of Sails
Hoist the sails! MTC Actual comes with a full set of sails that are in exceptional condition, including an asymmetric spinnaker with a top-down furler, Dacron mainsail and jib, and a custom-designed boom preventer permanently rigged. MTC Actual is also equipped with a brand new (October 2022) Dacron code zero sail with UV protection so it can permanently live on the fixed bowsprit, plus she has a spare Code Zero in like-new condition. Let the wind guide you through a long passage over the open water or a sporty day sail in local waters, and in any possible wind conditions.
3. Impressive Fuel Capacity
Go further with confidence Ã¢â?¬â?? MTC Actual has two auxiliary fuel tanks that nearly double the fuel capacity of any other Saona 47 catamaran on the market in the last 2 years! WeÃ¢â?¬â?¢re talkinÃ¢â?¬â?¢ a total of 358 gallons! For long passage making, that adds a level of confidence when the wind isnÃ¢â?¬â?¢t in your favor or you want to gain a few knots and motor sail. Add to it a custom-designed KTI fuel transfer system that is operable from inside the salon and allows for fuel transfer to and from any of the 4 fuel tanks. It also includes an integrated onboard Racor fuel polishing system, which is great for international travel. Transfer fuel as you polish it, and do it all while underway with the ability to motor sail over 1,000 nm without ever stopping for fuel!
4. Upgraded Garmin Electronics
Technology makes life easier. Especially when youÃ¢â?¬â?¢re on a boat. S/V MTC Actual comes with a full suite Garmin electronics package that includes autopilot, radar, and integrated FLIR camera (April 2022). The salon also comes with a full suite of redundant electronics so you can operate the vessel from inside the salon during inclement weather. Yes, that means a chart plotter, a second autopilot control head, VHF radio, fully integrated power management and boat data, and more! Convenient doesnÃ¢â?¬â?¢t even begin to describe what itÃ¢â?¬â?¢s like to operate the vessel from inside when the inevitable inclement weather arrives.
5. Upgraded custom Victron Power Management System
Now for the grand finale and most incredible upgrade youÃ¢â?¬â?¢ll ever find on a Fountaine Pajot Saona 47. Harbor Marine Electric, out of Key West, designed and built one of the most unique power systems weÃ¢â?¬â?¢ve ever seen. This system is custom-designed for long passage-making and includes a >50,000Wh LiFePO4 (lithium iron phosphate) battery bank, a 15,000W continuous inverter/charger (25,000W peak!), dual high output 48V alternators with a combined charge rate of 10,000W, and a custom stainless steel 2,275W solar array. What this means is MTC ActualÃ¢â?¬â?¢s system can provide more power to the vessel instantaneously than the onboard diesel generator or the 50A shore power service! Feel free to run all 4 stateroom air conditioning units for over 15 hours in the peak of summer while all the other appliances like refrigerators, radios, lights, etc. are in operation, and not have to worry about recharging. But, once you're ready to charge up the 48V system will provide the fastest charging times youÃ¢â?¬â?¢ll find on any production boat of this size. Harbor MarineÃ¢â?¬â?¢s Ã¢â?¬Å?Silent GeneratorÃ¢â?¬ï¿½ concept is a feature you just canÃ¢â?¬â?¢t miss.
If that wasnÃ¢â?¬â?¢t enough to get you power management geeks excited, she also has the added benefit of being internationally compatible, allowing you to charge the battery bank anywhere in the world. With her Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) function and dual shore power inlets, her Victron system transfers loads instantly and seamlessly allowing you to simply unplug/plugin without anything else to do, anywhere on earth.
Start cruising as soon as possible on THE most well-equipped Owner's version Fountaine Pajot catamarans on the market! With upgraded Garmin electronics, a full set of sails, expansive space, and a power management system unlike anything youÃ¢â?¬â?¢ve ever seen, MTC Actual is ready to make your global cruising dreams a reality.
