BAVARIA OPEN 40 | VICTORIA BOAT SHOW

PLANNING ON GOING TO SIDNEY TO/FROM THE VICTORIA BOAT SHOW THIS WEEKEND (APRIL 28 – MAY 1)? 

STOP BY AND SEE US ABOARD THE OPEN 40 AT OUR PORT SIDNEY MARINA DOCKS

A multi-award winning model. Both Cruising World and Sail magazines voted this model 2016 WINNER in their catamaran categories.

Speed and comfort are the two essential attributes that come to mind when describing catamaran sailing. Excellent sailing performance due to weight and displacement is complemented by a considerable gain in living space for the crew, as well as significantly steadier boat stability and easy handling. The result is reduced travel time, increased distance and sailing pleasure that offers more comfort and relaxation.

The NAUTITECH OPEN 40 is the ideal catamaran for travelling with family and friends. With the unique OPEN concept, the cockpit and the saloon of the NAUTITECH OPEN 40 flow into one shared living space, ideal for an unforgettable day at sea.
