The life aboard a Nautitech Catamarans
The name of the boat, what is the signification of "Silverfish" ?
The name was found at the first shot thanks to Nicolas' home decoration. Even if we looked for an other name, we decided to stay on our first idea : Silverfish.
Why did you choose a catamaran ?
The living space aboard ! For Anne and Nicolas, it was essential to find a boat with everyday comfort. Life at two in confined space was not an option. On a catamaran, they found all assets that they were looking for to preserve their serenity.
Why did you choose Nautitech brand ?
Anne and Nicolas have visited many catamarans brand. Nicolas was looking for a performance orientated catamaran and Anne was seeking for comfort. The couple quickly found Nautitech and more specifically the 46 Open because of the balance between performance and comfort. Nicolas considers this boat as one of the lightest and the most manœuvrable on the market. Anne feels delighted to see the comfortable foredeck where she will enjoy diving and sunbathing. In navigation, the 46 Open is stable and fast. An must for Nicolas !
