Key Yachting, Irish Agents for Nautitech Catamarans, are pleased to announce that the Nautitech 44 OPEN catamaran has won the European Yacht of the Year Award for 2023, awarded at the Dusseldorf Boat Show in the Multihull category.

This was a big win as this year’s number of entries was the highest.

The jury decided to merge the “Cruising Multihulls” and “Performance Multihulls” categories, so it is against six other models that the Nautitech 44 OPEN catamaran stood out for her exceptional sailing performance and her unequalled level of finish.
