=======================================================

"...the best of both worlds."

It is often said in discussions of yacht design that comfortable cruising accommodations and "sailing-performance" are mutually exclusive concepts - that both are "not achievable in the same boat."

The Nautilus 40 Pilothouse, built by Aztec Yachts after a C&C designed hull, may be one of the rare exceptions to the rule!  With her finely crafted teak joinery - coupled with a bright and spacious pilothouse and other living spaces - the Nautilus 40 certainly ranks tops in comfort-measures among yachts in this size-range.  And, with a provenance drawn from C&C's recognized reputation for performance, few would question her upwind (and offwind) creds! 

With her custom interior layout, and constant maintenance and upgrading by a very knowledgeable yachtsman, CAURUS is truly a standout example of this remarkable design.
