Yacht highlights on the Bavaria Cruiser 46 include large and aesthetic coach roof windows, a modern and purposeful profile, the largest bathing platform in her class, electrically raised and lowered (very James Bond) and twin rudders. With so much beam aft, twin rudders are necessary to ensure predictable steering at higher angles of heel, which a centreline single rudder could only achieve through a very deep draft. The added bonus is the capacious cockpit and uncluttered, wide side decks. The “fast to tack and easy to trim” 106% jib is sheeted on the coach roof, and coupled with a large main, makes a close winded, powerful, but easily handled yacht.
The Bavaria 46 is cavernous below decks. 3 or 4 double cabins, 3 heads and showers, all en-suite, and the master suite has the shower room to port, and the head and basin separately to starboard. Outrageously civilised. The saloon table has a navigation table incorporated into it, and the sofa extends to comfortably seat 10 around the table. Couple the on-board amenities with impressive sailing performance, massive storage in the cockpit area and the Bavaria 46 is a true blue water passage maker. This yacht also benefits from an on-board generator and full air-conditioning, as well as a stern shower.
Electronic aids on this Bavaria Cruiser 46 include two Garmin GPSMap 721 chartplotters with Wifi and touchscreens, Garmin 300i VHF with AIS and a Garmin autopilot.
What’s more, in this 3 convertible 4 cabin version, the master suite accommodation forward can be converted into two double cabins.
A truly amazing yacht for cruising the easy to sail waters of the beautiful BVI.
