ABILITY | Nautitech 46 Fly 46ft

US $599,000

Annapolis, MD, US


ABILITY is lightly used and never chartered.  Her three cabin arrangement offers generous space for all guests; the flybridge is the largest and most accommodating of any cats in this range.  In fact, once you've sailed from the bridge, you will not consider the old fashioned raised seat helm.  Any catamaran buyers who value performance need to compare the Nautitech to the popular Lagoon option.  On all counts, this is a superior cat.  With low hours, an innovative, cutting-edge electrical system, new sails and excellent maintenance, ABILITY is the best offering among all of the late model, flybridge catamarans. Take the time to visit Annapolis, you will not be disappointed.

The Nautitech 46 Fly is a performance-oriented catamaran. She has a foam core construction and is almost 10k pounds lighter than many other catamarans in this size range.  Many popular brands in this range emphasize comfort.  We urge any interested catamaran buyers to consider weight and keel design while shopping.  Performance of the Nautitech 46 under sail will not disappoint.

ABILITY has been lightly used and never chartered. Her three cabin arrangement offers generous space for all guests; the flybridge is the largest and most accommodating of any cats in this range.

With low hours, an innovative, cutting-edge electrical system, new sails and excellent maintenance, ABILITY is the best offering among all of the late model, flybridge catamarans.

Your team delivered on every mark. You’ve got an amazing broker in Mark Wattrus and I’m confident you will have continued success moving forward together. He was available 24/7 whenever I had questions. We had a great initial visit on the boat and his marketing plan and photos were superb

I bought a yacht that I had never seen. I did this because I trusted my broker Andrew Holland. It was not an easy job for Andrew, as I am an experienced boat builder and owner of previous yachts, but work in West Africa. Imagine how hard it was to communicate what I was looking for. Andrew came up with exactly what I wanted. He dealt with time delays, all my questions at odd hours, and was there for the survey. He reported honestly and professionally. After buying the yacht, I arrived at the boat on a Sunday night, after dark, after travelling from West Africa to the Caribbean, and found it was better than expected. He never pulled punches and made me aware of shortfalls. I expected to spend my one month leave working on the boat, but actually spent less than one week, and was able to spend 3 weeks sailing – wonderful bonus.

Thank you Andrew for putting up with all my questions, all my worries and all my crazy out of the time zone concerns – you were totally professional, but also I know that if and when we meet up, it will be like a friend finally meeting. You are always welcome on Aseka.

Outstanding company with professional subject matter experts. If I were to buy or sell cruising sailboat, particularly a catamaran, Andrew would be my go to broker.

I have been sailing since I was a child and attended Massachusetts Maritime Academy. But when my wife and I began the process of purchasing an ocean cruising/racing catamaran, I realized that this is a world unto itself. Obviously, we needed to find someone knowledgeable to help us make an informed decision. More importantly, we needed someone honest and willing to put our interests before his or her own. I was lucky to work with Phil Berman at The Multihull Company. He repeatedly shunned the fast buck, choosing instead to work the long road to connect us with the “perfect boat”. I would be glad to recommend Phil and his company to anyone planning to purchase or sell a performance sailing machine.

— Eric Boutiette

Andrew Hodgdon was our broker when we bought our 2018 Lagoon 450F in Antigua in April 2922. He provided great service and was very attentive to our needs. We would highly recommend Andrew and the Multihull Company.
