Tennessee Waltz, FP Saba 50 2015

Our brand new Saba 50, Tennessee Waltz,  is light, spacious and comfortable.  She offers you all the pleasures of the sea, both under sail and at anchor where relaxation goes hand in hand with comfort and pleasure.

Performance

Tennessee Waltz is elegant on the water, with high levels of sailing performance. This is integrated into the design process from the very beginning in order to give the craft its beautiful lines as well as the best possible levels of comfort, both at sea and at mooring. Movement on board has been designed so that there is direct communication between the cockpit, the helm station and the lounge deck.  Thus, the entire crew can easily move about in complete safety and without hindrance. Despite the boat’s size, designers Berret Racoupeau have worked hard to make it not only sail well, but remain easy to handle. The hulls, for example, have been given a fine entry for better performance, and a pair of fixed keels help the boat sail to weather. Your time under sail is simplified with upgrades including 2 electric winches, a foot switch at the helm for the electric windlass and 2 Garmin 8012 Chartplotters, located one at the helm and one at the navigation table. The helm pod has a double seat and houses electronic displays, engine controls and the wheel. The winches are ahead and apart from the wheel so that anyone managing sails has room to work without getting in the way of the helmsperson. For singlehanding, the autopilot will come in handy.

Accommodations

With the new Saba 50, Fountaine Pajot has optimized livability and comfort both inside and out. Multiple groups of people can socialize in segregated outdoor spaces, while the interior accommodations would put some hotels to shame. Tennessee Waltz has a generator and is fully air-conditioned for your comfort. The space on-board has been optimised in order to provide magnificent accommodation. The saloon and cockpit have generous storage areas, as do the passageways and the light-filled, spacious cabins. Tennessee Waltz boats 5 Double Cabins along with a smaller single cabin, suitable for a single person, 2 children or a captain. Each cabin has it own dedicated washroom with electric head. Large groups can also make use of the 2 air-conditioned bow cabins accessible from the deck. All main cabins have their own AC controls along with various lighting options.

The social area on the main deck has a galley that would make even a land-dweller jealous. Her galley is equipped with a large double drawer, stainless steel refrigerator, along with a separate freezer and additional cockpit fridge. A center island means multiple people can participate in meal preparation. A 4 burner stove, counter lever oven, additional microwave and propane grill making cooking a breeze. A sliding window next to the sink means meals can be passed directly from the galley to the cockpit.

Lounge Deck

With so much deck space on the Saba 50, Fountaine Pajot was able to create three distinct and relatively separate social areas. The first is at the bow, where a conversation nook includes two lounges with accompanying settees and a cocktail table. Eight people can easily gather here for sundowners and enjoy the shade of the cabinhouse instead of baking in the aft cockpit. It’s a very civilized space that still leaves room for lounging in the trampoline but adds a superyacht feel.

The aft cockpit, is two steps up from a swim platform on either hull. To port is the main dining table that seats six when folded, but also extends back to a long transom seat so a total of 10 people can be invited to dinner. An additional lounge is to starboard. A hardtop targa roof extends back over most of the cockpit, stopping just short of the transom seat so you can catch some sun if you like.

The “flybridge” has three sun lounges and an additional settee to seat six people comfortable. The view is fantastic, and everyone can converse with the captain without getting in the way, because the separate helm is two steps down to starboard.
