Yacht Sourcing awaiting new Fountaine Pajot catamarans
The Indonesia dealer is preparing for the arrival of an Astrea 42 and Asia’s first Tanna 47, as it seeks to build upon “a year of challenges” in 2022.

Yacht Sourcing has started the new year eagerly anticipating the arrivals of two new Fountaine Pajot sailing catamarans.
The company is awaiting deliveries of both an Astrea 42 and Asia’s first Tanna 47, and is already planning events around their arrivals in the coming months. Yacht Sourcing is Indonesia’s exclusive representative of Fountaine Pajot sailing and power catamarans, and Dufour sailing monohulls.

Boum Senous, founder and CEO of Yacht Sourcing, said: “Both the Astrea 42 and Tanna 47 are really impressive, and it’s amazing what Fountaine Pajot can do with the space on their models. The Astrea 42 is just ideal for the family who ordered it, while it was great to also see the Tanna 47 at Cannes. Overall, we see a rising interest in catamarans in Indonesia.”
As well as its head office in Bali, Yacht Sourcing owns a refit yard on the island and is a leader in luxury phinisi construction, last year launching the 50m Vela from its south Sulawesi shipyard following other iconic builds like the 55m Prana and the 47m The Maj Oceanic.

In November, Yacht Sourcing announced it was the worldwide Central Agent for the charter of Nala (click for article), a 37m hand-crafted phinisi motor-sailor launched earlier in the year.
Also last year, the company announced a new partner, Omar Benkirane (click for article), and a collaboration with Hong Kong-based NextWave Yachting for pre-owned listings, completed the interior refit of a Princess 58 in November and signed a contract for the refit of a 20m phinisi.

“It was a year of challenges, but as I look back, there’s also so much to celebrate,” Senous said. “And it was all possible because of an energetic and faithful team that I thank from the bottom of my heart. As a leader, I’m stronger than when I started, and the company is primed for success.”
