Nautitech 40 Open
The lounge as a concept
Fast and relaxed sailing
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.
Lots of space – lots of comfort – lots of fun.
Deck, cockpit and salon are on the same level. Only one of the features that makes the BAVARIA NAUTITECH 40 OPEN unique. She is elegant, very light and extremely agile, which gives a more direct sailing feeling.

The ’40 OPEN’ idea essentially consists in the fusion of the interior space with the cockpit lounge. In order to avoid creating two dis‐ appointingly small areas, the NAUTITECH designers and Marc Lombard decided to create a large roofed cockpit lounge and leave the actual saloon as a generously sized pantry plus a combined navigation corner and seating area. In bad weather, or if you need privacy, the tarpaulin system makes it possible for the lounge to be partially or completely closed off.
In the thick of things
The pantry in the saloon is excellently equipped and designed for practicality. All lockers and utensils are within easy reach. The cosy navigation and seating area directly adjoining offers a perfect over‐view of the entire ship, and is a welcome retreat at odd moments when you want a coffee or a snack.
Whether they come with three or four cabins, the NAUTITECH 40 OPEN welcome guests below deck with a harmoniously designed living space and all the comfort you could wish for. Welcome to the saloon and below deck!
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.
