The Nautitech 46 Open is the Open 40, on steroids.
The Nautitech 46 Open is available as a 3 cabin, owners version, where the entire port hull is given to the owners stateroom with ensuite head and shower, and the starboard side has two double cabins, two heads and showers, and an entirely separate shower cubicle, enabling you to keep the heads as ‘dry’ areas. The 4 cabin version, mirrors the starboard side of the owner’s layout, on the port side of the yacht. The elongated cockpit joins seamlessly with the saloon, which has a U shaped galley to port, a lounge area to starboard, and the option of a chaise longue with ottomans, or additional storage with more refrigeration and freezer space.
Marc Lombard has designed the Nautitech 46 Open utilising the fact that cats get their speed more from their fineness of hull ratio – hull length divided by waterline beam, more than from their light displacement – although displacement is mighty important too, and Nautitech does an outstanding job of building a light, strong, stiff boat. Skinny below the waterline does not mean skinny accommodations as the cat boasts an aggressive hard chine above the waterline, that not only adds copious volume to the cabins but also cuts down any spray coming up from a choppy sea.
A high bridge deck clearance and low centre of gravity make this a very comfortable cat to sail offshore. The option of an inner forestay, self-tacking jib, genoa, code zero and downwind sails set on top-down furlers, makes her a serious contender for globetrotting adventurers. A simpler specification makes for an extremely rewarding catamaran to coastal hop or as a luxurious daysailer.
A recent upgrade to the yacht has brought the following improvements to the already superb design:
- New outside look with a dual-colour roof
- Double hull portholes with black frame
- Lowered boom & extended mast
- New davits system for easier tender manoeuvring
- Lounge area with 3 table bearings and Cozy wood panelling
- Dedicated chart table area
- Fully equipped u-galley ensuring ease of access with the aft cockpit
- 3-cabin owner version: Redesigned owner area with separate toilets
- 4-cabin version: Private bathroom for each cabin
