Nautitech Open 40 3 Cabin


Nautitech Open 40 ‘Aya’ (2016)


“AYA” is a three cabin Nautitech Open 40 for sale from Horizon Yacht Sales in the British Virgin Islands. This three cabin version has the entire port hull dedicated to the owner’s suite!

This catamaran is less than a year old, very well equipped (including A/C and generator) and in excellent condition.

This Nautitech Open 40 for sale 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
  • Fully battened Mainsail with stack pack
  • Self-tacking jib
  • Furling gennaker

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. The 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. When comparing a typical coach roof helm position versus the 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.

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). 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

This Nautitech Open 40 for sale also benefits from Dinghy and outboard on davits.
