Looking for a brand-new catamaran with all the flaws and warranty issues already ironed out? Then Slip Away is just the yacht you are looking for. This 2023 Fountaine Pajot Elba 45 (Maestro version) is now available for discerning buyers.

Other inventory of this vessel includes: gen set, solar panels, water maker, washing machine, Garmin full electronic pack, davits, electric winches and much more.

Performance remains in Fountaine Pajot’s DNA throughout this model with an impressive sail area on a well-managed displacement.The Elba 45 is one of the shipyard’s best sellers for a reason. Her energetic silhouette with inverted bows turns heads at every port.

Slip Away was only launched in May 2023 and was able to sail the Mediterranean for 6 months. Unfortunately, due to family commitments, her owners have reluctantly agreed to offer her for sale.

Consequently, Slip Away presents in as-new condition and has been fitted with an extensive list of ocean-going options, making her the perfect liveaboard catamaran with excellent speed. A surveyor would be hard pressed to find any issues with this ready to sail away yacht.

Experience the best that Fountaine Pajot offers in design, systems and performance, then seize the opportunity to own Slip Away. Multihull Solutions can assist with relocation of this vessel to your port of choice, including providing various quotations for shipping or delivery crew and managing the process.

Your team delivered on every mark. You’ve got an amazing broker in Mark Wattrus and I’m confident you will have continued success moving forward together. He was available 24/7 whenever I had questions. We had a great initial visit on the boat and his marketing plan and photos were superb

— Jimmy

I bought a yacht that I had never seen. I did this because I trusted my broker Andrew Holland. It was not an easy job for Andrew, as I am an experienced boat builder and owner of previous yachts, but work in West Africa. Imagine how hard it was to communicate what I was looking for. Andrew came up with exactly what I wanted. He dealt with time delays, all my questions at odd hours, and was there for the survey. He reported honestly and professionally. After buying the yacht, I arrived at the boat on a Sunday night, after dark, after travelling from West Africa to the Caribbean, and found it was better than expected. He never pulled punches and made me aware of shortfalls. I expected to spend my one month leave working on the boat, but actually spent less than one week, and was able to spend 3 weeks sailing – wonderful bonus.

Thank you Andrew for putting up with all my questions, all my worries and all my crazy out of the time zone concerns – you were totally professional, but also I know that if and when we meet up, it will be like a friend finally meeting. You are always welcome on Aseka.

Outstanding company with professional subject matter experts. If I were to buy or sell cruising sailboat, particularly a catamaran, Andrew would be my go to broker.

— JT

I have been sailing since I was a child and attended Massachusetts Maritime Academy. But when my wife and I began the process of purchasing an ocean cruising/racing catamaran, I realized that this is a world unto itself. Obviously, we needed to find someone knowledgeable to help us make an informed decision. More importantly, we needed someone honest and willing to put our interests before his or her own. I was lucky to work with Phil Berman at The Multihull Company. He repeatedly shunned the fast buck, choosing instead to work the long road to connect us with the “perfect boat”. I would be glad to recommend Phil and his company to anyone planning to purchase or sell a performance sailing machine.

— Eric Boutiette

Andrew Hodgdon was our broker when we bought our 2018 Lagoon 450F in Antigua in April 2922. He provided great service and was very attentive to our needs. We would highly recommend Andrew and the Multihull Company.
