The Helia 44 is a successful cruising catamaran, suited to family use, which is inevitably multi-purpose. Its performance is completely coherent – it swallows up the miles at an average of 10 knots in remarkable comfort – and it is well-balanced. With its really efficient deck plan, it will delight sailors looking for a boat capable of taking them far and for a long time. The Helia’s commercial success demonstrates just how good the concept is.


The Saba 50 is the new catamaran from Fountaine Pajot and was the star of the fall boat shows. It must be said that although the overall lines are similar to the successful Sanya 57 and Hélia 44, the Saba 50 really is a new generation boat. Aboard we find several well-separated living areas, so that everyone can feel comfortable and enjoy the cruise to the full: there is of course the now traditional ‘lounge deck’, a genuine deck lounge situated on top of the bimini, designed and studied from the origin of the concept, so it fits into the lines as well as possible. Up forward, the Saba offers a genuine lounge-sunbathing area, which is as pleasant to use at anchor as when sailing to watch the sunset... But it is inside that the Saba 50 is really surprising: the accommodation has been redesigned: the very nice galley with its ‘island’ will be particularly appreciated by the cook, while the cabins, especially the owner’s, offer comfort, stowage and light. We particularly appreciated the original and practical treatment of the bathrooms.


At the Fountaine Pajot booth at Miami you will find the Saba 50, and there you will be able to download free the full test conducted by Multihulls World journalists.


Miami, an unmissable show!
