Nautitech 482 catamaran : The renaissance of a successful catamaran
On the basis of the excellent Mortain/Mavrikios design, Nautitech Catamaran, now based in Rochefort in the former CIM factory (big charter catamarans), is re-launching the excellent 47’. Going much further than a simple restyling, Bruno Voisard’s team has completely reinterpreted this much-appreciated multihull, to adapt it to the demands of 2013. Here is the test of the new Nautitech 482 catamaran.
Nautitech 482 catamaran : A modern catamaran with a classic design
When the 482 project was born, Nautitech’s aim was to create a new boat based on proven lines and an overall definition which had not dated. The in-house research and development department, accompanied by the architect Franck de Rivoyre for the structure, therefore modified the bows and the hulls, which were lengthened aft to bring the silhouette up to date, and make the sugar scoops more functional. Once these alterations had been made, the deck, the coachroof, the rigid coachroof extension, the mainsheet traveller location had to be re-designed, and the steering positions approved of on the 542 had to be fitted. A deck mould designed for infusion was manufactured.
