Individual, aesthetic, efficient, and perfectly balanced: the Venezia 42. The futuristic "cap" in the roof is a sunshade which eliminates the greenhouse effect inside the boat and shields fabrics and woodwork from the deteriorating affect of UV rays. Colours, shapes, materials - all are ingredients for the successful alchemy of the Venezia interior design. One of its finer points must be the unusually spacious hulls, with four double cabins. Galley and chart table are both in the saloon to take advantage of the superb all-round view. Every Fountaine Pajot is built to the highest ISO 9002 European standard for offshore yachts, incorporating vacuum-bagging construction and careful hand lay-up with sophisticated high-strength isophthalic resins, which results in an extremely high strength-to-weight ratio. The keels are fixed fins, and filled with foam, protecting the rudders and shafts. Should they strike a reef or submerged object they harmlessly break away without allowing water intrusion. Fountaine Pajot catamarans use nets forward and eliminate weight in the forward hulls to prevent pitching and aid bow recovery in heavy seas. .
