Nautitech 40 Open

While the Nautitech 40 Open is nothing new in itself, the philosophy that the German shipyard Bavaria has wanted to adopt for this 40-footer is certainly innovative. Main innovations, in fact, have been introduced to relaunch the model, resulting from a fruitful joint collaboration between the new German management and the “old” French experience. The yachts are, in fact, still built in Rochefort, France, but the interiors are all made in Giebelstadt, Germany. Compared with predecessors, this latest model is 20% lighter thanks to the vacuum-sealed infusion technology that guarantees lighter and more resistant hulls.

Designed by Marc Lombard, the Nautitech 40 Open has a larger sail area for better performance. The concept of OPEN has been enhanced so as to allow guests to enjoy their stay on board on a single level: the one between lounge and cockpit. Designers have preferred to locate the double wheels in the cockpit, renouncing the idea of a fly bridge, to provide the helmsman with better view. Special attention has been paid to sports equipment and storage capacity.

Marc Lombard and his team has also managed to create streamlined waterlines, with generous interior volumes and wide hull steps; furthermore, the sturdy fixed keels improve upwind performance, despite a reduced draft. The interior layout of the Nautitech 40 Open can include three or four cabins. In the first version, the master cabin is really remarkable.
