MANUFACTURER PROVIDED DESCRIPTION:

Individual, aesthetic, efficient, and perfectly balanced.

The futuristic "cap" in the roof is a sunshade which eliminates the greenhouse effect inside the boat and shields fabrics and woodwork from the deteriorating affect of UV rays.

Colours, shapes, materials - all are ingredients for the successful alchemy of the Venezia interior design.

One of its finer points must be the unusually spacious hulls, with four double cabins.

Galley and chart table are both in the saloon to take advantage of the superb all-round view.

Every Fountaine Pajot is built to the highest ISO 9002 European standard for offshore yachts, incorporating vacuum-bagging construction and careful hand lay-up with sophisticated high-strength isophthalic resins, which results in an extremely high strength-to-weight ratio.

The keels are fixed fins, and filled with foam, protecting the rudders and shafts. Should they strike a reef or submerged object they harmlessly break away without allowing water intrusion.

Fountaine Pajot catamarans use nets forward and eliminate weight in the forward hulls to prevent pitching and aid bow recovery in heavy seas.

CONSTRUCTION:

Venezia 42 built in 1997 by Fountaine Pajot.

The current owner bought it 2005 in Athen, Greek, Europe refitted the boat extensively  in Spain and prepared it for blue water sailing.

As part of the renovations the hulls were fully stripped and re-skinned with 3 layers of epoxy as a preventative barrier agains osmosis / hydrolysis.

A GRP hardtop Bimini was added to replace the previous canvas  top. It is strong enough for several people to walk on and is also designed for catching rainwater.

Together with canvas, waves and wind protections, the cockpit stay completely dry when it's raining or in heavy weather.

The hulls were extended aft by 40cm to enhance the transoms, reduce hobby-horsing and adds more room for showering outside, stepping on and off the boat from the dinghy, etc.

The boat has always been maintained in immaculate condition by her fastidious Swiss owners.
