Fountaine Pajot has extended its collaboration with Yacht Sourcing in Indonesia, where the dealer has sold an Astrea 42 that’s scheduled to arrive in 2022. Founded in 1976, Fountaine Pajot is one of the world’s leading brands of sailing and power catamarans. Yacht Sourcing is headed by Director Boumedienne Senous, who co-founded the multi-service company in 2016.
Kevin Corfa, Head of Fountaine Pajot Asia, said: “Yacht Sourcing has the proper structure to accompany our clients in the archipelago, with extensive experience in catering for all needs related to sailing. Boum and his team have been working hard to promote the brand and recently sold an Astrea 42.

“The crisis has hit the whole region and everywhere else, but in Asia, continued lack of travel is making the process longer and more complex. As such, the Astrea 42 sailing in Indonesia will be a formidable showcase for the brand and a demonstration of the Fountaine Pajot customer care, thanks again to Boum and his team on the ground.”
Corfa said he expected significant brand growth in Indonesia due to its massive population, vast size and extensive cruising grounds, which include an estimated 18,000 islands.

“The waters are pristine, the playground is enormous and the culture is already there. What was not there before was the visibility and the possibility for any boat enthusiast to get on board a Fountaine Pajot without taking a long flight to Europe,” Corfa added.
“We have tremendous confidence in Yacht Sourcing to continue providing this possibility to their customers as they bring Fountaine Pajot models to Indonesia.”
Builder of about 4,000 catamarans since 1976, the La Rochelle shipyard has launched three new models in the past year and is soon set to embark on a sustainability-focused evolution.
