Nautitech Open 40 Catamaran (2016)

Overview

Horizon Yacht Charters in the BVI is delighted to present this Nautitech Open 40 ‘Aya’ by Bavaria catamarans in Owner’s configuration with three double cabins.

She comes complete with a bimini over the helm position for shade from the Caribbean sun. The Nautitech Open 40 has a new, innovative design that brings comfortable living and excellent performance together.

As well as the Sail magazine best boat award, the Open 40 was also named Cruising World best multihull cruiser for 2016.

The saloon opens seamlessly into the cockpit, providing a huge living area whether under sail or at anchor. A hard bimini covers the cockpit, and an individual bimini covers the helm position on starboard (there is an additional helm to port). Sailing performance is enhanced by:

  • High aspect rudders and high aspect sails
  • Self-tacking jib
  • The opportunity to charter with the additional Code 0 asymmetric gennaker (Can be rented for an additional $500 per week)

so you get all the fun of a fast, close winded cat, comfortably sailed by two people, but with the living space you would expect in a 45 footer!

Drop-down panels allow you to air-condition the entire cockpit at anchor (and the rest of the interior of course). The Open 40 seats eight people with ease at the cockpit table, and you can enjoy panoramic views throughout the cockpit and saloon.

A cruising cat has always been a great boat to charter; the Bavaria Open 40 adds the essential ingredient of simple, spectacular sailing as standard.

The Nautitech Open 40 construction is first class; different density foam cores are used, in combination with specific laminate specifications depending on the application and loading in different parts of the structure. Read more here

When comparing a typical coach roof helm position versus the Bavaria Open 40 outboard helm position, the following should be considered. With twin helms and throttles on the hulls (with a bimini over both port and starboard helms), you are driving the boat from a position where you have good visibility forward and aft, and you are able to see all four corners of the boat. Read more here.

The “Open” 40 name relates to the Voisard- Lombard vision of a sailing/living space unlike any other. The saloon has a forward facing galley, twin drawer fridge, and a saloon table to seat 6, with integrated navigation station. Two large coach roof hatches provide ventilation at anchor (along with two fans, and air conditioning as standard on the Horizon spec). Upholstery is leather both inside and out, and the oak interior adds to the feeling of comfort.

This owner’s version configuration has a dedicated stateroom in the entire port hull. The starboard hull incorporates two spacious double cabins and bathroom.

Other features to maximise your comfort include:

  • Fusion stereo system with Bluetooth & USB
  • Garmin Autopilot
  • Large Garmin Chart Plotter
  • Dinghy with outboard motor

Read more here.

Then you go sailing! A fathead main ( which does not have to be clipped and unclipped from the track) is hoisted effortlessly with the ( standard Horizon spec) electric winch, and as you bear off, the solent jib is unfurled and sets beautifully on its self tacking track. In 7.5 knots of wind, single handed, without touching a sheet, the cat tacks through 105 degrees and never drops below 3.6 knots during the tack. Read more here.

The Bavaria Open 40 is a very well thought out catamaran, with remarkable turn of speed, handling to match, and layout options to make her very appealing to private purchasers and charter management alike. This is a yacht to get truly excited about.
