In the 42 foot segment there is a huge selection in the monohull area, but not in the multihulls. Only the Bali 4.3 and the Lagoon 42 are directly comparable in terms of length and space. With dynamic hull lines, negative stems and protruding saloon roof, the new boat fits smoothly into the series of the shipyard's most recent designs, the Luci40 and the Saon47.

The Astré42 should bring the features of the larger boat with it, such as the electric bathing platform, the huge sliding door that separates the saloon from the cockpit, and the large hull windows. The Kat is available with four cabins and four toilets or with two chambers on port and a master cabin with a huge bathroom on starboard.
The Astré42 (previously known as the New 42) was recently presented, christened and tested by the YACHT at the Kat fair in LGrande Motte. Report soon, first pictures here.
