Design 2239-C1 - Nauticat 43

Three motorsailer models were designed for Siltala Yachts of Finland and sold under the name of Nauticat. This is the second. In each case these motorsailers were developed for Nautor Swan, also of Finland, and in each case the design was taken up by Siltala Yachts and produced in a slightly modified form.

The Nautor 43, design #2399, was produced between 1976 and 1979 with 24 hulls delivered. Not a bad production run. Production began at Siltala Yachts of the modified design in 1983 and ended in 1999 with 94 hulls delivered, a very good production run.

Here are the plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 42'-8"
LWL 32'-10"

Draft 6'-3"
Displacement 33,080 lbs
Ballast 9,480 lbs
Sail Area 1,092 sq ft


  1. Nasty looking yacht but their owners love them.

    1. Pure envy........

    2. High and dry in 60 knot winds and 25 foot seas from Canada to Mexico, winter of 2016. Warm in the pilot house with the heater, unlimited water, hydraulic autopilot, sleeping soundly behind Radar, AIS and Garmin warning beacons.
