The new SABA 50′ Fountaine Pajot catamaran is the newest offshore cruiser from the reputable Fountaine Pajot yard. She incorporates the best features of a world circling live aboard cruiser yet possesses performance and seaworthiness qualities which will cater to the most demanding offshore sailor. The Saba 50 catamaran is the sistership to the Salina 48 which has become famous for being the first catamaran to sail through the notorious NW Passage. (read the fascinating blog of Libellule) Incidentally the same Fountaine Pajot catamaran circumnavigated the world as well and then rounded Cape Horn. The Saba 50 catamaran is built on the same principles that has made so many previous Fountaine Pajot catamarans famous: The Saba 50 is a sea boat first and second a luxurious home afloat.

Modeled after her successful sistership the Saba 50 catamaran is another masterwork from the French builders Fountaine Pajot. Light, spacious and with a high-level of performance the SABA 50 offers you all the pleasures of the sea, both under sail and at anchor where relaxation goes hand in hand with comfort of living aboard. The space on-board has been optimized in order to provide magnificent accommodations for up to 14 guests. The saloon and cockpit have generous storage areas, as do the passageways, and the light-filled, spacious cabins. SABA 50 catamaran brochure
With over 2500 catamarans built Fountaine Pajot has the experience in building ocean capable catamarans as very few other yards posses. 100’s of sister ships have circumnavigated and 1000’s have made trans ocean passages. In fact most Fountaine Pajot catamarans depart the factory and their first maiden sail is across the Atlantic through the notorious Bay of Biscay. Winter or summer, no matter what the season, Fountaine Pajot catamarans safely make the trip. The Saba 50 catamaran is a big enough yacht to live aboard in ultimate comfort yet is small enough to be handled by a single female sailor. Safety on the Saba 50 catamaran not only comes from a strong and lightweight construction technique but also through smart placement of winches, sail controls and the top notch equipment utilized in the build of this outstanding yacht.
Comfort and space whether at anchor or at sea
The Saba 50 catamaran has the space of a 75′ monohull yet thanks to her 4’1″ draft can sneak into the most shallow and secluded harbors. This not only does this provide a peace of mind but also greatly enhances the enjoyment of the cruising lifestyle. Your guests aboard the Saba 50 will immediately feel at ease. The motion of this substantial yacht is comfortable and your crew is pampered with palatial accommodations and cozy areas to relax in. The Saba 50 catamaran has a 26’2″ beam which makes her stabler at anchor than most yachts twice her size. This greatly reduces rolling and contributes to the comfort aboard.
Luxury apartment with a waterfront view
As most of her sisterships built by Fountain Pajot, the Saba 50 is available in 2 versions: The Maestro Owner version boasts one of the nicest owner suites in the industry but still is able to accommodate an additional 8 guests in great comfort. The 6 cabin version can sleep 12 in separate cabins and is perfectly suitable for a larger family or the luxury charter market. The finish of the Saba 50 catamaran benefits greatly from Fountaine Pajot’s Flagship class yachts which have a more refined and higher quality look. The woods are select and matching veneers, hardware is top of the line and the interior design is modern, easy on the eyes and virtually maintenance free. The Saba 50 is a yacht you can live with. She will take care of you in the worst storms and cradle you with comfort.
