Horizon Yacht Charters in Antigua is delighted to present ‘Pride’ – a Nautitech Open 40 by Bavaria catamarans with four double cabins.
She comes complete with a bimini over each helm position for shade from the Caribbean sun. The Nautitech Open 40 has a new, innovative design that brings comfortable living and excellent performance together.
As well as the Sail magazine best boat award, the Nautitech Open 40 was also named Cruising World best multihull cruiser for 2016.
‘Pride’ is available for charter in Antigua from 1st July 2017.
The saloon opens seamlessly into the cockpit, providing a huge living area whether under sail or at anchor. A hard bimini covers the cockpit, and an individual bimini covers the helm position on starboard (there is an additional helm to port). Sailing performance is enhanced by:
- High aspect rudders and high aspect sails
- Self-tacking jib
So you get all the fun of a fast, close winded cat, comfortably sailed by two people, but with the living space you would expect in a 45 foot catamaran.
Drop-down panels allow you to air-condition the entire cockpit at anchor (and the rest of the interior of course). The Open 40 seats eight people with ease at the cockpit table, and you can enjoy panoramic views throughout the cockpit and saloon.
A cruising cat has always been a great boat to charter; the Bavaria Open 40 adds the essential ingredient of simple, spectacular sailing as standard.
So, why not take the Nautitech Open 40 on your next yacht charter with Horizon in Antigua?
The Nautitech Open 40 construction is first class; different density foam cores are used, in combination with specific laminate specifications depending on the application and loading in different parts of the structure. Read more here.
When comparing a typical coach roof helm position versus the Bavaria Open 40 outboard helm position, the following should be considered. With twin helms and throttles on the hulls (with a bimini over both port and starboard helms), you are driving the boat from a position where you have good visibility forward and aft, and you are able to see all four corners of the boat.

The “Open” 40 name relates to the Voisard- Lombard vision of a sailing/living space unlike any other. The saloon has a forward facing galley, twin drawer fridge, and a saloon table to seat 6, with integrated navigation station. Two large coach roof hatches provide ventilation at anchor (along with two fans, and air conditioning as standard on the Horizon spec).
