FAST and SAFE Sailing with a Fly Deck

The new Bavaria Nautitech 46 Fly does not take its name from an ability to become airborne, but is the flybridge version of the original 46 Open. The flybridge opens a spacious area for skipper and passengers, provides excellent visibility in all directions and consolidates control lines neatly in one place.

Going with the trend in cruising cats today, the plan of the Nautitech 46 Fly is all about entertaining. From the sun lounge on the bow trampolines to the bright, open saloon to the big cockpit astern, traffic flow for a multitude will be easy. There’s also a more intimate space for conversation on the flybridge, where the backrest of the helm seat pivots when at anchor to provide two additional seats.

Beyond that, the flybridge is set up as the control center for the boat, with all the halyards and sheets leading to three electric winches close to the wheel. Visibility is nearly perfect from here, although furling the mainsail could be a challenge due to the fact that the boom is far enough above the cabin top that even tall crew members must climb some mast steps to push the last bit of the luff into the cover. That said, Bavaria also offers a hard top that will put the entire length of the boom within easy reach thereby solving this problem.

The Nautitech 46 Fly is for the enthusiastic audience among sociable sailors who want the comfort and style of a nice seaside apartment along with the ability to handle rough conditions when they occur. It would be a nice platform for cruising the East Coast in summer and going south to the islands when winter comes
