Purchase in 2019 in Dubai. Sailed to and refitted in Cape town SA. Sailed to Bahamas and sold to Aussies. Covid hit them before crossing the Pacific, and she was stuck at Shelter Bay Marina, Panama for 2 years. Present owner purchased her in 2021, and did an extensive refit. She is in excellent condition and quality built for offshore blue water cruising. Many recent upgrades.

With upgrades inspired by Fountaine Pajot’s exclusive Flagship range, this Salina 48 Evolution is an extremely capable offshore catamaran ideally suited to blue water cruising with an emphasis on speed, stability, comfort, safety and spaciousness. The sleek sailing catamaran by Fountaine Pajot replaces the Salina 48, and was strategically planned to impress with a stunning new interior design, improved helm station, upgraded galley and roomier hulls.

Like its predecessor, 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. The Salina 48 Evolution has been designed to the most demanding list of specifications by architects Berret/Racoupeau. 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 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, customized timber cabinetry and excellent storage, the galley sets new standards 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 optimize the spacious lounge area. The catamaran has been redesigned to maximize 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.

The Salina 48 Evolution has been manufactured with new technology including an infused sandwich composite hull plus a deckhouse molded with new RTM eco-technology. 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 is available in two versions; The Quatuor version comprises four cabins and four bathrooms while the Maestro version has a private owner’s suite separate with a bathroom that will impress.

By Charles @ The Multihull Company

At 12 years old Charles told his mom he wanted to live on a boat and that dream became a reality at 35 when he moved onboard a baby trimaran full time. Growing up in Greece and moving back to the USA for highschool and college, Charles has never veered far from the water. After a decade in the Florida Keys and the Bahamas, Charles is now based in Bocas del Toro Panama, living on his Shuttleworth catamaran. Charles has a deep understanding of ship systems and has been living off grid for over a decade, with a significant amount of shorthanded performance sailing. “There are few things I appreciate more than watching the eyes of a new owner light up when taking the helm of their new boat for the first time, or seeing a well-loved boat going to a great new home, and knowing I helped make that a reality”
