(published September 2016-boat show preview)

BWS attended the big multihull boat show in France last April and had a chance to get a first look at the new Bavaria Open 46 cruising cat. Bavaria Yacht bought Nautitech Catamarans recently and immediately brought out the Open 40, which is a thoroughly modern, fine sailing cruising cat. It combines the economies and functionality of a mid-range production cat with superior sailing performance and styling. The new 46 builds on these qualities and delivers a package, in 46 feet, that really works well. The original 46s have twin helms on each stern. A flying bridge model will also be available. The boat sails particularly well and has a high top end if you want it. The living spaces are well thought out and will make for happy family living aboard. The Open 46 provides a lot of quality in a package that is an excellent value.
