All eyes will be on Multihull Solutions and The Yacht Sales Co as they stage the Asia Pacific premiere of four new power and sail models at the 2023 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show from 25-28 May.

The event will be the stage for Multihull Solution's launch of the highly anticipated Fountaine Pajot Aura 51 sailing catamaran and the MY4.S by Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts. Sister company The Yacht Sales Co will also unveil the walkaround luxury day boat, the Tesoro T-40 Outboard, as well as the Absolute 47 Fly for the first time in the Asia Pacific region. With strong enquiry for these models already being received by the sales teams, the Gold Coast event is shaping up to be the most successful in the companies' history.

Multihull Solutions has already sold five Aura 51 models since its 2022 launch in France, with the catamaran holding strong appeal for its expansive living areas, redesigned deck layout, and superior level of comfort. A key feature of this 51-foot cruising catamaran is its complete opening between the saloon and the cockpit, which facilitates uninterrupted communication between the galley and alfresco area.

The Aura 51 is also able to accommodate a large surface area of solar panels without compromising on design. Its large flybridge, with its spacious lounge and sunbathing area, is fitted with solar panels that are totally flush decked and capable of producing 2000 watts of renewable energy. This innovation enables the catamaran to generate five times more solar energy than other yachts equipped with solar panels.

Fountaine Pajot has also launched the ground-breaking Aura 51 Smart Electric in France, which is distinguished by the absence of an internal combustion engine. In its place in the duplicate compartments in the starboard and port hulls are batteries and advanced electronic systems that manage the motor and all the energy flow onboard.

This new-generation catamaran is the first stage of the shipyard's Odyssea plan before the development of fuel cells that will allow Fountaine Pajot to install hydrogen-powered motors on all their boats for optimal eco-sustainability.

Multihull Solutions will also launch the MY4.S by Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts at the show. In its first departure from its traditional flybridge designs, Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts has enjoyed huge success with its new MY4.S sedan model, which is able to enjoy unrestricted cruising through waterways with low bridge clearances otherwise untenable for many flybridge models.

One of the most striking features of the MY4.S is its remarkable living spaces, with its oversized interior shattering preconceptions of a motor yacht this size. As part of its radical redesign from the MY37, the MY4.S boasts a voluminous saloon with an optional electrotonically operated skylight that offers superb natural light and ventilation. With an interior surface area of 47m2, the yacht has ample space for everyone to relax and move about with comfort and ease.

The Yacht Sales Co will stage the Asia Pacific premiere of the iconic Tesoro T-40 Outboard, a luxurious walkaround day boat that features a new exterior design and plenty of refined interior details. The yacht features sleek lines and safe, easy sea access courtesy of a generous swim platform that cleverly encases the engines. The Tesoro T-40's new Cullinan T-Top, with sturdy roof pillars integrated into the bulwarks, makes a single solid piece integrated with the hull creating a large, protected deck space and outstanding stability.

An expansive garage space provides an abundance of storage for all types and sizes of water toys. Generous hull windows and cabin skylight deliver beautiful natural light and ventilation, and her interior is the most spacious in her category with two generous cabins.

Also on display at the show with The Yacht Sales Co will be the Absolute Yachts 47 Fly, a luxurious motor yacht distinguished by expansive living areas and powerful technology to deliver optimal safe and comfortable cruising. The 47 Fly features a generous flybridge with large sunbed and spacious entertaining area, a well-equipped galley that seamlessly integrates with the cockpit, and pillar-free windows in the saloon that afford offer breathtaking views and an abundance of natural light.

The interior of the yacht has been finished to the highest standards with generous headroom throughout, full-boat air conditioning, excellent storage capacity, and designer cabins and ensuites.

Multihull Solutions and The Yacht Sales Co will also have full details of all its world-leading brands at the show, including Fountaine Pajot, Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts, Dufour Yachts, NEEL and LEEN Trimarans, Absolute Yachts, Cora Cat and Tesoro Yachts, as well as details of its quality pre-owned yachts for sale within its Brokerage divisions.
