New Nautitech 46


Nov 7, 2019

At the Cannes Yachting Festival in September the French shipbuilder Nautitech Catamarans presented afloat its latest born: New Nautitech 46. Available in two versions, the Nautitech 46 Open and 46 Fly have benefited from an interior redesign from the design office Roseo Design to achieve the most successful alliance of the market between performance and comfort.

During the festival, Nautitech also took the opportunity to present the new design of its Nautitech 47 Power, with a launch scheduled for early 2020 in Miami.

The unique character of the new Nautitech 46 Open has been reinforced thanks to a bicolor roof, giving her a modern and sleek look, thanks to a longer mast, a lowered boom and an increased sail area which contri- bute to establish the performance of this model with one of the best weight/displacement ratio in her category.

The Nautitech 46 Fly is designed for those who love to travel by the sea and share moments of conviviality. For a few days or for an extended trip, this model is the perfect balance between comfort in navigation and comfort on board.

In the saloon, Roseo Design has reimagined the space to offer an unrivalled live-aboard experience. A warmer woodwork, a variety of materials, and a multitude of storage spaces, are all welcome features of this new option for the performance cruising market. The cabins are light and airy thanks to the double hull windows and multiple openings on the outside. Comfort and privacy are ensured via private bathrooms for each cabin.

Neptunus 650F Review

Neptunus 650F 400

By Andy Adams

Over the years Canadian Yachting has had the pleasure of doing several boat review articles on new Neptunus models and we are familiar with the qualities that Neptunus is famous for. They have all been exceptional yachts, but this is the one I would most want to own myself. It’s a personal choice and a matter of taste as to whether you would prefer to have a sedan express model or a flybridge but in my opinion, the flybridge layout offers some wonderful attributes.

We met with Neptunus Managing Director Jan Willem De Jong this past fall to take the new Neptunus 650F out in Lake Ontario.

The Other Virgin Islands

Sunset off St John

By Mark Stevens

I was first seduced by the United States Virgin Islands during a ferry ride from St. Thomas to Tortola to begin one of our earliest British Virgin Islands charters nearly twenty years ago.

A perfect sunset off St. John with St. Thomas views for backdrop.

Clearing Pillsbury Sound, surrounded by voluptuous emerald mountains as the ferry sliced through royal blue waters, I was struck by the unspoiled ambiance of St. John, the island gliding past our starboard beam and the irresistible charm of a village called Cruz Bay visible from our quarter stern.
