NAUTILUS YACHT MANAGEMENT is proud to present this rarely available to market and immaculate example of the popular Nautitech 40 Open.

This veritable head turner with her assertive, powerful profile hides a veritable working horse beneath her refined details. Sailed by a young couple from France to French Polynesia by way of the Caribbean and Panama, she has been always been meticulously maintained and just given a final meticulous look-over in order to make her absolutely perfect for you.

Chosen for her responsive, lively displacement and great turn of speed as much as for her generous and luxurious accommodation, she has delivered to her owners everything and more, taking them safely across thousands of ocean miles without so much as a complaint.

Starting outside, the cockpit will surprise you with its large proportions for a 40' cat. It is a great space to relax and entertain. Where certain catamaran manufacturers have chosen to reduce the cockpit space in favour of a larger salon, Nautitech has designed a catamaran perfectly suited to the love of the outdoors, with a perfectly balanced salon and galley area, but at the same time a larger usable cockpit space than can be found in similar size catamarans.

The cockpit, which is where most boat owners spend most of their time whether at anchor or at sea, is the real gravity centre of the yacht, with a large, comfortable outdoor dining furnished with custom designer upholstery and lovely timber table.There are settees on all sides of the cockpit, perfect for entertaining and to provide additional storage areas , something greatly appreciated by long range cruisers always in need of space.

Full weather protection covers are rolled away from sight when not needed and easily deployed when the weather turns. 

Designed to integrate the outdoor and indoor area seamlessly, the salon is a simple extension of the cockpit, but can also be closed off into a very lovely, cosy area which is positioned on a way to make the most of the 360 degrees views, while providing comfortable seating when underway.

The salon table can be lowered to create additional guest sleeping or a very comfy day bed, perfect for those lazy rainy days or resting during a passage.

The galley was deliberately positioned to help the cook remain at the most stable angle when wrestling up dinner in a difficult seaway. It is well-equipped for serious cruisers, who need to store fresh and non-perishable food for long period of times between harbours. There is one large fridge and separate freezer in the galley and an additional fridge in the cockpit.

The owner's ensuite is on the port side and a veritable luxury apartment, with a large island berth, salon area with desk, perfect for those running their business from their yacht, and a huge bathroom with separate shower.

As with the rest of the boat, attention was placed on using space to provide an abundance of storage areas, sorely needed on cruising yachts. Various lockers are found everywhere, from hanging lockers to shelvings, drawers, and smaller, versatile lockers making use of the available space in the smartest way possible. Pegasus's owners have also further improved on the dedicated storage space to add functional hold storage, as well as customised brackets for their scuba tanks in the boat areas. Avid surfers and wing riders, they have also designed a shaded holding rack on the stern. The Davit allows for the 3.10m Highfield dinghy to be safely stowed when at sea and launched when needed, as well as easily boarded from the large transoms specifically open on one side for this purpose.

The starboard side is shared between two double guests cabins and a shared head / shower areas, which is the preferred layout for most owners, who would rather have one large, shared head area with separate shower, rather than two awkward, smaller head areas.

Looking now at the more dynamic side of the yacht, Pegasus was fitted out for world travel.

For those who want a proper look at their sail, feel closer to the water and get a real 'sailing feeling', the helms are perfectly situated. The helm positions are also ideal when berthing in a tight spot, with a perfect visibility to the side. To make things even easier, the two helms on Pegasus are equipped with electronic repeaters, making both helms interchangeable so you can chose whichever one works best for your current situation.

Pegasus was always meant to be sailed short-handed. Both her pervious and current owners had young children (her current owners have a toddler and an infant). They made sure that everything to do with handling the ship in all weather conditions could be done by one person if needed. In spite of her impressive size, Pegasus is very easy to sail with her self-tacking jib, all lines run aft to the cockpit, and an intelligent running rigging system assisted with a primary power winch.

Pegasus is the product of long years of research and comparisons for this young couple who wanted an exhilarating but also comfortable and safe experience of world travelling under sail. They decided on the Nautitech 40 Open because they already loved the Nautitech design and second-to-none building quality, with the added bonus of a generous headroom for taller people, which often lacks on other catamarans.With a minimum 6'4" headroom at her lowest point, the Nautitech 40 Open was worth waiting for and has proven a great compromise between comfort and performance.

Purchased from a cruising family who had just completed a year's cruise after purchasing new, the boat already came with an array of extras, which they further extended with additional equipment careful chosen before departure and continually upgraded thereafter.

This boat is setup for bluewater cruising, and has been taken off grid for months at a time. She is ideal as a live-aboard or serious blue- water cruiser for you and your family. She will be personally handed over to you by her owners, and with everything on board to allow you to just bring your clothes, make yourself at home and start your sailing adventures now with no further expenses needed.  

Before being put on the market, Pegasus was fine combed to sort out any possible blemish and to make the boat perfect for her new owners. This superb vessel will appeal to a new boat buyer, yet without the waiting list, huge immediate depreciation, and without the disadvantages of teething issues inevitable for new boats, as well a the lengthy, costly upgrade needed to transform a bare boat into a proper offshore yacht.

Another advantage being such a young boat, is that a leasing option is available for qualifying Europeans buyers, which may allow you to pick up the lease and continue sailing with the only financial outlay of the monthly repayments, a system very popular with almost every French and UK boat owner we work with around the world. You can contact our team for more information.

"Who are we? Alice and Adrian a dynamic couple age 34 & 39. We met a few years ago with a project that brought us together: to travel, to discover the world. 

After the first decade of amazing professional development, we decided to live our dream. Fascinated by the sea, we naturally chose the boat to travel.

We left France in November 2020, sailed through the Mediterranean Sea, the Atlantic and Caribbean islands, crossed the Panama Canal and the Pacific Ocean. 

After two years of pure dream onboard Pegasus, and our two babies born on the way, we have decided to pause our circumnavigation, waiting for our girls to grow up. This is why we leave our beloved boat here in Polynesia.

We were in search of a Nautitech 40 Open: they offer the perfect balance between performance and life on board. 

After careful consideration we decided that a 40-foot boat would be ideal for a couple, or a family with two kids, specifically the three cabin owners version.

In 2020 we were ready to embark on this project and we were in search of a well-equipped, recent owner version. Fortunately, Pegasus was available with almost a perfect setup.

She was launched in July 2019 and had been navigated by a family of four (parents with two girls aged 10 and 12) for one year-round trip on the Atlantic (France, Canaries, Caribbean islands, France).

We purchased the boat in July 2020 and kept the name Pegasus, as we love astronomy and horses.

She was already well equipped for circumnavigation. However, we installed the radar a forward scan and bought two sails (a Gennaker and a spinnaker Parasailer-type) to maximise the use of wind. We also added a board rack at the stern.  

We spent some time adapting the storage hulls (forward starboard and port) to perfectly fit the scuba diving and fishing gear.

We also made sure that everything had a dedicated storage location to keep the boat organised and easy to navigate.

Additionally, we pride ourselves on keeping the boat clean and well maintained. Pegasus is in excellent condition. All equipment is fully serviced. 

The Nautitech 40 Open is a spacious and comfortable boat that is easy to manoeuvre even with just one person. 

The “Open” design provides plenty of space on the main deck where you can find a large cockpit and an open saloon /  kitchen.

The boat features three pilot stations allowing you to navigate from inside or outside.

The sailing performance is nice and the autopilot is 100% reliable and very efficient. Under motor you will easily reach 5-6 knots.

The kitchen is big enough to cook all your favourite dishes, and the cockpit sofas are very comfortable.

The boat has comfortable bedrooms well-ventilated cabins and plenty of headroom. The stern skirts are large and well open, providing a lot of space for water activities or fishing.

Overall, the Nautitech 40 Open is a great boat that we have been happy with for the past two years.

Pegasus is located in French Polynesia. You are welcome to contact us, visit, and navigate." Alice & Adrian, Tahiti, May 2023.
