Price is for a 2023 standard Aura 51 delivered to the East Coast USA or the Caribbean with the Grand Large Package, Navigation Electronics and Safety Equipment.
Putting environmental sustainability at the heart of the design of this boat and those that will follow is a major objective for the Aura 51. To this end, we have multiplied by five the surface area integrated into the deck to install solar panels, which means that the boat is capable of accommodating 2000 watts of solar panels.
By adding other components that favor sustainable development, such as the hybrid engine developed with Volvo or the batteries that can be recharged by the sun, we have envisaged a boat with an electrical impulsion and negative consumption, i.e., capable of producing more energy than it consumes without having to resort to fossil fuels in normal use. In the same vein, electricity generated by renewable energy makes it possible to produce drinking water and run the refrigeration or the air conditioning.
To show that we have a commitment to sustainable development and are leading a new generation with ambition, we focused on three principles for optimizing this Aura 51 model. First, we maximized the number of cabins for a boat this size. Today, we are the only ones to offer six "cabin/bathroom" spaces on a 50-foot catamaran. We also worked on the versatility of the model to produce 3 different owner versions, something that had never been offered at Fountaine Pajot until now.
We then made major changes to both exterior and interior design elements. The new deck design marks the arrival of a new generation of Fountaine Pajot boats, while the whole salon-cockpit area features a maximum-size opening, creating an almost unique volume between salon, galley and exterior cockpit. The area for entertaining will be truly immense, inside and out. This will make the Aura 51 sailing yacht that is both pleasurable to live on and respectful of nature.
