With upgrades inspired by Fountaine Pajot’s exclusive Flagship range, the Salina 48 Evolution is an extremely capable offshore catamaran ideally suited to blue water cruising with an emphasis on stability, comfort, safety and spaciousness.
Its length (48′/14.30 m) gives it a slender shape with a very low centre of gravity for optimal comfort and safety at sea while its 136m2 sail plan performs very effectively with minimal pitch in more choppy conditions.
Emulating a gourmet commercial kitchen, the Salina 48 Evolution’s galley is a dream for offshore entertaining. With dark Corian benchtops, a four-burner stainless steel stove, brushed stainless steel sink, bar, customised timber cabinetry and excellent storage, the galley is a revolution in marine design.
The Salina 48 Evolution also features an improved saloon with an elegant dining table that seats eight guests, which converts to a coffee table to optimise the spacious lounge area.
The catamaran has been redesigned to maximise space and storage in the passageways, while larger portholes afford even more natural light and unforgettable views.
A redesigned, raised steering station is fully protected from the sun and seats three people featuring direct, ergonomic access to the cockpit. Also, with the cockpit, saloon and steering station seamlessly integrated, the Salina 48 Evolution enables the helmsman and guests to enjoy easy, uninterrupted communication.
A decadent sunbathing deck at the aft of the Salina 48 Evolution enjoys exceptional protection from the elements while underway and provides yet another idyllic setting for relaxation.
The Salina 48 Evolution has been manufactured with new technology including an infused sandwich composite hull plus a deckhouse moulded with new RTM eco-technology.
