The Nautitech 47 Powercat originates from the French yard in Rochefort sur Mer, in the Charente Maritime department on the South West Atlantic coast; a hotbed of the French boat building industry. Rochefort was founded as a major naval base in 1666; it has the world’s oldest dry dock dating from 1669, and is where one of the largest factories in 17th century Europe still stands – a rope factory, to rig all the warships.
More recently…Nautitech was founded in 1994, and are now the 4th largest catamaran builder in the world. Marc Lombard, a designer famous for being able to marry efficient hydrodynamics with striking aesthetics, has created a performance powercat for Nautitech, which also combines space and versatility. There is inspired connectivity between the distinct exterior areas and the ‘sky lounge’, as the yard has named the saloon, such is the panorama it offers.
With an available top speed of 22 knots (with the optional upgrade from twin 225 HP to twin 300 HP), this catamaran doesn’t just have powerful acceleration; its cruising range of 1000 miles at a speed of nearly 9 knots is also testimony to its endurance. With her incredibly efficient hull shape and wave piercing bows, she is very quiet and comfortable underway. With twin engines over 20ft apart, manoeuvrability is superb, and with a Simrad docking camera aft, coming alongside or stern to short-handed is straightforward.
The Nautitech 47 powercat has been designed with distinct living areas aboard. The bridge deck has an ergonomic helm position and, with seating for 10, the panoramic views from the bridge make it a very popular vantage point. There is a generous hard top bimini, affording plenty of shade, the table and handily located wet bar and fridge mean that you can enjoy hours relaxing on the upper deck with a cold drink in hand.
Forward steps lead down to the outside lounge area in the bow, with additional steps amidships leading into the fabulous cockpit. This expansive cockpit leads seamlessly through large sliding doors to the beautifully designed saloon. You can experience al fresco living afloat at its very best, by combining dinner with up to ten friends at the teak table in the cockpit, before retiring to the saloon lounge for coffee.
The stern of the Nautitech 47 Powercat is multi-faceted, with the yard referring to it as ‘the terrace’! The lifting platform between the hulls can be used as a Tenderlift or as a bathing paradise. It easily lifts the 12ft rigid inflatable tender with 15hp outboard out of the water. In its central position, it links the two transoms to create a platform which becomes a wonderful area for sunbathing right next to the water. When the platform is completely lowered into the water, the Nautitech 47 even has its own beach in shallow water.
The Nautitech 47 incorporates Naviops into the Simrad electronics suite. With a Simrad 12” NSS Evo 3 in the ‘sky lounge’, and another at the helm station, you have state of the art cartography on top of the Naviops system to run all your ships systems, as well as seeing the status on batteries, fuel, water etc. The Simrad VHF has AIS and a wireless handset. The Autopilot is the Simrad SG 05.
The construction is state of the art. The boat is built under tightly controlled vacuum infusion, which is a very efficient and clean process, enabling tight resin to fibreglass ratios. Very thorough ‘wetting out’ eliminates any weak dry laminates, resulting in a very stiff and durable construction, with a significantly better power to weight ratio than competitors. The yard only uses vinylester resin, as opposed to polyester resin, which means that the boats are not at risk from osmosis.
