UK sailor David McLeman bought a new Nautitech 46 Open Catamaran from Key Yachting in order to fulfil his dream of cruising in Europe plus doing the ARC Transatlantic cruise/race and spending a full year away in the Caribbean.
Choosing a catamaran
The video below covers his reasons for choosing a catamaran, even though he was previously a monohull sailor including competing in a number of Fastnet Races.
Key Yachting presently has a demo Nautitech 46 open for sale, only new last July. This boat is fully equipped, in the water at Hamble, and ready to sail away. It is being offered at €498,000—plus VAT, a €60k plus VAT discount off the new price.
Questions answered in this video are:
Why a multihull over a monohull?
Monohull—sailing performance versus more accommodation?
What size monohull has similar internal volume compared to a multihull?
How many crew are needed to do a trip like this?
