Nautitech Build Quality
Since 2012, Nautitech has adopted the resin infusion system in order to save weight and to improve build quality.
Above the waterline the boat is built with a sandwich core to the laminate which increases stiffness, saves weight and provides superb insulation which is helpful in extremes of climate. Below the waterline, the bottom of the boat is a solid laminate which gives exceptional resistance to impact. Nautitechs are built to be strong and seaworthy. The technique of laminating all the stringers and the bulkhead to the hull gives Nautitech the confidence to offer a 5 year structural warranty. A major side benefit is an almost complete absence of squeaks and creaks from the structure whilst under sail.
On the water Sailing on a Nautitech, you experience the most comfortable of motions. The hulls have a fine entry creating an easy motion, but with sufficient reserved buoyancy above the water line to prevent nose-diving. This reduces pitching and ensures safety in strong winds. The fine entry hulls have a second benefit; greatly reducing the weight of the hull and deck moulding; another performance enhancing trait. A central nacelle with sufficient water clearance and cleverly designed wave deflectors. Nautitechs are designed to be used in all conditions. If caught out by 30 knots of wind, the boat accelerates rather than loading up. The combination of fine entries, cleverly crafted transoms and the profile of the rudders provide great handling and the ability to carry a high daily mileage in safe control.
1. The Sails
High-tech construction means that Nautitechs are light, allowing them to have a moderate, easy to manage sail plan. A sail plan that does not need to be reefed until further up the wind range than some rivals. A sail plan that is compact, easy to adjust, and control. Access to the main sail is greatly assisted by the rigid Bimini which means that the crew can reach the full length of the boom, thus facilitating stowing of the sail after use. At an option Nautitech offer various performance packages from upgraded sail fabrics to carbon masts with synthetic rigging.
2. The Helms
Nautitech is the only boat builder that offers a choice of one helm or two on a boat of 44 feet. The single wheel option is a high quality, hydraulic system, which provides very light steering from a position with an extremely good view. The two wheel option, positioned aft of each hull, provides a direct drag link which gives the helmsman more control and is extremely useful when maneuvering alongside the pontoon.
All Nautitech deck gear is selected from top quality manufacturers such as Harken, Lewmar and Antal.
As standard, Nautitech have chosen an anchoring
system mounted on the centerline permits:
- a ground tackle locker at the foot of the mast
- a clear view of the windlass and its operator from the
helm position, thus facilitating communication
- a deep chain locker
- a bow trampoline supported by a central beam
