Nautitech 47

I'm wondering if anyone has owned or chartered a Nautitech 47. I'm interested in it's sailing performance and build quality mainly. I realize the con's of the dual outboard helms and am not looking for a discussion on that feature.

What I specifically like about the boats from pictures is the galley, nav station, and short extended hard top. It appears to have a fairly good bridge deck clearance. Thanks.

Thought I'd try once more.

Does anyone have any experience with the Nautitech 47?

I take a delivery from Martinique to St marteen in a 47, what you want to know??
Construction Quality? like many others charters catamarans around, and who the hell want to be in the open helm station in rough weather?? sorry i dont have to much sailing miles in this particular catamaran, sounds to me is Dufour construction. Cheers

We were and still maybe looking at the N47. We do love everything about it except for the exposed helms. But, that being said, I think that can easily be covered in a custom made bimini. I won't let that be my only deterrent and if I do purchase one, I'll have something made. All too easy!!

Good quality as might be expected from the French. The exposed stations why issue if the boat goes 99% by auto or via the remote joystick. Twin exposed stations are very good if you like to be in the breeze or have a lot of marina manouvering to do.
