Le Grand Pavois & Nautitech Catamarans

This year, Nautitech Catamarans will be present at the Grand Pavois from September 20th to September 25th, 2023, and will be showcasing the 2023 edition of the 40 Open and the 44 Open. A scale of the new 48 Open will also be displayed.


It's a unique opportunity to discover the new version of this iconic model, which has been produced in over 200 units.


The 40 Open with her open living space and a flush cockpit/saloon area has been the key to the success of the 40 Open since her launch. 


With this new edition, the 40 Open undergoes a redesign inspired by the aesthetic codes of her big sister, the 44 Open. New finishes for the davits, handrails, and roof ladder enhance the sporty look of this 40-foot catamaran. Inside, the interior design has also been upgraded in terms of finishing and ergonomics to provide an even more luxurious onboard experience.


The 44 Open will also be presented in an owner version. Launched in 2022, this model has already won numerous awards, including European Yacht of the Year 2023 and Sail Magazine's TOP 10 Best Boat of the Year.
