Re: Astrea 42 owners

I have seen previous posts where all numbers less than 80 were mentioned. I have just ordered my Astrea 42 but have not been advised of the hull number yet. It's due for pick up in November 2021.
Will let you know when I find out!

Re: Astrea 42 owners

Hey Stephen! I was supposed to cruise to the Bahamas on your Saona right when COVID started... How's everything!! The order was placed back in 2019 on a Saba. The pandemic made me downsize to a Astréa... If you remember, I'm in the events business.. The losses are in the 8 digits..... Still is very weak on the business side...
But I am very excited to get my Astrea this fall...
We will be spending 2 months this fall in La Rochelle. Can't hardly wait.

Re: Astrea 42 owners

Of course I remember you. I follow you on Facebook Event planning! What could have been hit harder, but you seem to have adapted remarkably. After our aborted trip to the Bahamas on my new Saona 47 last year due to Covid we sailed it north to Annapolis during hurricane season. When I arrived, four months into Covid, I realized it might last another four months so I sold it for what I paid (less a healthy commission), bought a house on the lake in the mountains and a Jeanneau 349 in San Diego. I think the 42 may be the perfect boat. My thinking that the 47 would be like my Beneteau Sense 50 was bad thinking. The 47 is so big that berthing and handling was a chore. I like the 42 with an inside helm much better than the 40, 45 and now the new 47. I know you will love your Astrea. They are very complex with lots of systems and most of us had significant teething issues. Enjoy!

With the tack on the windward hull, the sail is away from the main sail shadow and you can run at very deep angles. This particular one is 142 sqm, with a luff of 18 meters. I have attached some 3D views (the "virtual" pole is an effect of our design SW, this is really a tack set on the (windward) hull bow).
