Nautitech Open 46

Now owned by Bavaria, Nautitech launches the new Open 46. Having sailed the Nautitech Open 40, and seeing its seriously good performance, I hope the 46 will have that extraordinary speed potential as well. Attached the first pictures just out. Big benefit is that the 46 has the option of the flybridge - which is not just a wheelstation but an extra cockpit in the sun; this means no annoying double helmstations from which you can only see 1/3rd of an arc instead of having 360 degree vision which I am used to and love from my Lagoon days.

Sadly the Open 40 and Open 46 are overpriced compared to the competition, very strange as you would think Bavaria will get such volume on the chartermarket as well as having Bavaria purchasing power behind it all, prices should be more competitive. I can't wait to see it though - if that performance is like the Open 40 ......

Re: Nautitech Open 46

It certainly moves along unloaded. I wonder how a few ton of fuel,water, dinghy and cruising gear would effect performance. What's the list price for the two models? I saw a couple of the open 40s in La Rochelle, they looked good. Don't think I could sacrifice the lagoon liveability for the extra boat speed personally. I guess the 40 is around 6tonne?

The 40 is intriguing, but I agree the price seems high. Is there some manufacturing process that nautitech uses to justify a higher price than say a lipari 41? Is there a discernible difference in quality compared to the other major players?

Re: Nautitech Open 46

I just posted this screenshot on the other Nautitech current thread, but I'm posting it again because it shows a N482, which surely has to be the best looking cruising cat of that size range.

As a Nautitech owner who prefers the twin helms, this would be my dream choice. Aesthetics matter. The new models have a fashionable angularity which will date them badly within a couple of years, but the sharp corners will continue to bruise the owners for many years more..

Re: Nautitech Open 46

I just looked at their website. Does not mention anything about an Open 46.
I like the interiors and the light created inside.
Been looking at their boats but has not been overly intrigued by dual wheels and no 360░ visability so having a bridgedeck sounds good.
Wonder why they have not updated their website in neither French nor English version.

Re: Nautitech Open 46

I have the Multihulls World 2015 Buyers Guide which was published Jan/Feb. It lists the base price on just about every multi made. You can download it for a a small fee. Barnes & Noble stocks the current print version
The N40 is 282,200 Euros
The N46 is not listed. I guess it didn't make the deadline
The N482 is 545,550 Euros

Re: Nautitech Open 46

The link to the N46 is on the news tab on the Bavaria page but it says the same as the link in the first post.
News

I forgot to mention that there are short specs on the boats in MW mag. Length, beam, displacement, sail area, etc. The N40 has a stated 7800 kg displacement so that would be 7.8 metric tonnes Mitchell. 10% heavier than 7.8 tons.

Re: Nautitech Open 46

I agree with Chris in SG about the N482 - one of the better looking cats out there (though Outremer is still my favorite). I wonder if the 482 is on borrowed time now that the Open 46 has been revealed? I have to admit that I do like the practicality of the Open 40 and it's good to know that it provides an edge in the performance department. I'm excited to get more information on the Open 46 - might offer the perfect compromise between performance and liveability.

Re: Nautitech Open 46

The Open 46 is set to be shown at the La Grande Motte show in April. Anyone have early photos or construction photos of the boat?

Re: Nautitech Open 46

I have an official offer for Nautitech 46 fly bridge.


4 cabins list price is 396.000, 3 cabin owner version is 399.900 Euros. With electronics and couple of extras (w/out genset or A/C) you come around 460-465.000 Euros ex La Rochelle. That's about the same price as Helia 44, if not slightly cheaper, althought she's 2 ft longer..
Obviously having not seen her yet, we don't know about built quality but assuming that this is OK, I would say she's "reasonably" priced.


Cheers

Re: Nautitech Open 46

She is not that light (10.8t empty - my Salina 48 started at 10.5t) and the standard sails are not that large.
I guess that is the new standard for a "fast cat" - "lighter and faster than the other (condos)"

But two helms are good and very social.

That is the best looking cat I have ever seen. Looks like she is going 30knts. Just wish they would set up the helm like the Antares.
