This listing is for a brand new Bavaria - Nautitech 40 Open catamaran with ca 6 months from order.
This is what Gregor Tarjan (owner of an OPen 40 and founder of Aeroyacht Ltd.) had to say after a test sail: “The 40 Open works so well as a sailing machine because of a combination of compounding features: her narrow waterline, chine for stiffness, closely spaced bulkheads and light weight to large sail plan. Pair that with a closed cell foam core, reliable fine appendages and mechanical F1 type helming and you have the perfect performance cruiser – a “true Swiss Army Knife of sailing yachts”…as the press has called this boat”
The new, multiple award winning Bavaria Nautitech 40 Open catamaran is a fresh, new concept in cruising catamarans. The German builder Bavaria Catamarans’ long experience in building and engineering sailing yachts to a very high standard are manifested in their newest creation – the Bavaria Nautitech 40 Open catamaran.
Gregor Tarjan, Aeroyacht’s founder personal catamaran is a high spec Nautitech Open 40 which is available for demo sails and select sailing clinics in New York and St. Martin. Sail the beautiful waters of New England, New York and North East aboard a Bavaria Nautitech catamaran.
The Bavaria Nautitech 40 Open catamaran is built using the most advanced composite technology to the highest international offshore standards. Because of the low cost,95% of today’s production catamarans are built with a wood core (even in the bilge areas!) which tends to rot. Not the Bavaria Nautitech 40 Open- which uses closed cell, high density foam as core which makes the boat virtually unsinkable and osmosis resistant. Solid composite bilges, sacrificial keels and a series of strategically placed watertight bulkheads make this one of the safest offshore cruising catamarans available today.
Another advantage over other cruising catamarans are the design and execution of the Bavaria 40 Open underwater appendages. The aerodynamically optimized keels have a higher aspect ratio and less resistance creating more lift and sailing characteristics indistinguishable from dagger boards – but without the hassle of operation and safety concerns. The deep, high aspect ratio twin rudders are well aft and closely spaced to the hull for optimal rudder and autopilot control.
We are not the only ones who have recognized these magnificent vessels. In October 2015 the Bavaria Nautitech 40 Open won, as the very first catamaran ever -the two most coveted industry awards in the same year !
