A unique opportunity to buy one of the best equipped Nautitech Open 40’s on the water. This boat has been looked after from new by Sail Ionian who are Bavaria dealers and have a well earned reputation for offering only the best presented and maintained boats in the charter industry. The current owners are in the process of preparing her to cross the Atlantic and she is going through an extensive program of upgrades and maintenance to make her ready to cross oceans in comfort.
Stepping onboard the first thing you notice about the Open 40 is the size of the cockpit, which can also be fully enclosed to make a usable space in cooler climates or bad weather. It’s hard to believe she is only 40 ft as the accommodation on offer is substantial with 4x double cabins, 2 heads with good sized showers and also 2 further single berths in the bow and a saloon table that makes another berth. At the same time still feeling spacious for a couple or small family.
Sailing performance will appeal to all as she is easily handled with a small crew with 2 power winches and all lines back to the cockpit but for the more experienced she is light weight and is a very capable long range cruiser especially with the upgrades and enhancements her current owners have added. Kiwi also benefits from 2 helm positions 1 port & 1 starboard allowing for the optimum helming position.
After a winter of upgrade and maintenance work she will finish her charter commitments in July 2020 and then begin the journey across to the Canaries to join the ARC and cross the Atlantic to the Caribbean in late 2020. Our sellers will then look to hand her over to new lucky owners. Timings, dates and location all open to negotiation!
An ‘out of the box’ option would also be to purchase and then join the crew and sail her from Corfu to Gibraltar or the Canaries in October for the ARC start and/or sail all the way in the ARC arriving in the Caribbean in December, taking possession upon arrival in time for the Caribbean cruising season.
