Wauquiez Pilot Saloon 42 on the Yachting Festival Cannes

Last Update: September 13th, 2018

On the occasion of the 2018 edition of the Yachting Festival in Cannes, the Wauquiez shipyard presents, for the first time in France and afloat, the PILOT SALOON 42, the latest addition to the Pilot Saloon range.

Since the introduction of the first Pilot Saloon sailing yacht in 1991 the Wauquiez shipyard has built over 300 yachts of this type. The Pilot Saloon is a blue ocean cruiser with a very unique approach towards world-wide cruising offering day-light, space, comfort, safety and the pleasure of sailing.


All yachts are entirely built in house at the yard in Neuville-en-Ferrain located just 15 minutes above Lille, combining true craftmanship and the latest technologies.

Latest model Pilot Saloon 42

The new Wauquiez Pilot Saloon 42 has a high-performance hull shape.

The straight bow stretches the waterline to the absolute maximum length resulting in better performances and higher speeds. The powerful bow and soft hull chines provide a high shape stability, very important for offering a sailing yacht behaving well in all conditions.

The Pilot Saloon 42 has a powerful stern suited for a double rudder configuration making the boat easy to helm downwind and at the same time reducing the wetted surface which improves the sailing performances in light winds.
They also paid special attention to the appendages.
