In the BAVARIA NAUTITECH 40 OPEN, the NAUTITECH design team and star designer Marc Lombard have succeeded in redefining the living space of a cruising catamaran. Whereas in the past the deck saloon and cockpit lounge have tended to be separate worlds, here they have been combined – resulting in a completely new feeling of space.
Based on the experience that daily life takes place in the cockpit, on a 40-foot vessel, either the cockpit lounge or saloon generally suffer from size limitations, but here, the two areas have simply been combined. This in turn has only been made possible with the help of a sophisticated tarpaulin system. As a result, dinners and parties will no longer be disturbed by wind or weather.
It is thanks to Marc Lombard and his team that with all this styling and design, the crew has nothing to complain about. The cockpit lounge is generous, the way to the foredeck is secured with rails, and the two steering stations provide a perfect overview and ideal visibility in all manoeuvres and changes of wind direction.
Aesthetic and functional
A concentrated wealth of experience and skill has gone into creating the NAUTITECH 40 OPEN, but the ideal of elegance and an aesthetic line has never been lost from sight. The hull windows for example are an elegant addition, both supplementing the design and making life below deck more enjoyable.
