Bavaria Yachtbau and Nautitech Catamarans have finalised negotiations for the French catamaran manufacturer to be acquired by the Giebelstadt-based company.
With this move, Bavaria expands its product portfolio of monohull yachts to include the growing market for catamarans and continues along its targeted course of opening up new markets.
“The market for cruising catamarans is a fast-growing segment, not only for private owners but even more so for the charter market. Bavaria has always had been very well positioned in both markets. With Nautitech Catamarans and its experienced team, led by founder Bruno Voisard, we have found the right partner to gain access to the catamaran market,” said Constantin von Bülow, CEO of Bavaria Yachts.
Nautitech Catamarans has been manufacturing 40 – 60ft catamarans at its Rochefort site on the French Atlantic coast since 2004. Nautitech catamarans are designed and built by its founder, Bruno Voisard, and his team of multihull specialists. The latest creation is a 40-foot catamaran, developed in collaboration with specialist Marc Lombard. The new 40-foot catamaran features spatial design combined with comfort, as well as high product quality and fast and safe sailing characteristics.
“Bavaria is the ideal partner for Nautitech Catamarans. As a building block, our catamarans are an optimum addition to the Bavaria Yachts product portfolio. Nautitech has experienced rapid growth over the past years and we look forward to continuing along this course with Bavaria,” explains Bruno Voisard, chief of Nautitech.
Bavaria and Nautitech Catamarans will be exhibiting together for the first time in Cannes from 9 – 14 September.
Ensign Ship Brokers are the Australian distributor for both Bavaria and Nautitech.
