The wide beam hull increases the cockpit area and allows for easier and safer movement on deck. Seating areas and helm stations are incredibly generous, creating a highly functional yet liveable exterior space. Lines and halyards run neatly aft to the double helm stations, now located further aft in this model. L-shaped couches sit uninterrupted as the halyard winches and mainsail sheets sit on the coachroof. Angled coamings, a low coachroof and clear side decks make transition forward and aft a breeze. The large swim platform comes in an option of electrical or manual operation.

Featuring a hull with improved stiffness and greater speed potential, Nauta Design have made no sacrifices to performance while upholding her liveability status. You decide the size of the sail area with different performance options available. Keen sailors can opt for the First line version; with a taller mast and greater draught. A standard mast for a semi or full battened mainsail is also an option. The in-mast furling system and self-tacking jib is designed to make shorthanded manoeuvring that much easier.
