Sailing performance meets design, comfort and luxury on two hulls
Sailing performance meets design, comfort and luxury on two hulls


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.


Climb down onto the net and enjoy the peace and quiet: that’s what some people like to do best – which is why we’ve made the net at the front especially big. Narrower hulls make sailing more fun – fun for everyone, which is always our aim.
  • 1 Sophisticated, narrow hull design means more stability and calmer sailing.
  • 2 Lots of space for relaxing and enjoying.
  • 3 Two Steering on Each hull side.
  • 外部空间4 Freedom and fun on the water.


Another advantage of the OPEN concept is the covered lounge area, which provides perfect protection in any weather. In sunshine it gives you shade; in bad weather and on unpleasant days it can be partially or wholly closed, depending on your needs. It’s also great because it means everything’s at hand. A social meeting place for the whole crew.
  • 5 Giant lounge: offers space for up to twelve people.
  • 居住空间2 Cosy, elegant, inviting: exactly what you need on board.
  • 7. Pasta with panorama.
  • 居住空间4 The kitchen: high quality, very spacious.
  • 9 Seating area ...
  • 10 ... or chart table – it’s up to you.


Being in the three-cabin version with its big owner’s cabin on the port side is rather like being in a luxury hotel on land. Even the crew cabins are beautifully bright, stylish and elegant – and they have their own en suite bathroom. The finest materials complete the feeling of wellbeing – deep sleep guaranteed.
  • 11 Fantastic owner’s suite.
  • 12 Owner’s cabin with separate desk and masses of space.
  • 13 Luxury bathroom in the three-cabin version.
  • 14 Hard to imagine more luxury.
  • 15 3-Cabin Layout
  • 16 4-Cabin Layout
