2009 Fountaine Pajot Salina 48

St. Thomas


Sweetest Thing is a luxurious 48-foot, state-of- the-art catamaran. This design was brand new in
2008, delivered from France in 2009 from renowned yacht builder Fountaine Pajot, replacing the Bahia 46. The Salina 48 is exceptionally roomy, with large windows - ideal for three couples and children up to eight total guests. She offers huge salon and cockpit social areas, plus an aft sun deck, foredeck seating, and an elevated 3-seat flybridge with panoramic views, yet easy access to the cockpit. Excellent condition, has been professionally upgraded & maintained in a crewed charter operation since 2012, where she generates over $200,000 of income annually. Keep her in charter, or sail her away knowing she is more sea-worthy, better engineered now than when she was new. A beautiful, fast, solid boat in an attractive program.
