2018 Fountaine Pajot Saona 47

Deltaville, Virginia


2018 Fountaine Pajot Saona 47

One owner vessel, Hull #48 which was delivered in October of 2018 after a 2 year wait for production. The owners are full time live-aboard cruisers, but life changes dictate that it’s time move back to dry land.

Quite the Catch was built for owners, not charter. She features an owners cabin which encompasses the entire port hull, including a luxurious ensuite with European styling, and electric heads.

The starboard hull includes two guest cabins, each with private ensuite electric head and separate shower. Both guest cabins include their own AC unit and thermostat. The starboard forepeak is also fitted out with a single berth and manual head. Owners use this cabin for storage.

Fountaine Pajot's Saona offers the gear and amenities you'd expect in a world-class cruising catamaran
