First impressions when boarding this yacht from astern as you pass through the transom entry point she feels like a fifty footer. The extra-wide transom twin helm position was a revolution when it was introduced on this model. At the time yacht, designers wanted to make boats go faster by making the aft more buoyant. Extending the aft to achieve more buoyancy would have involved having an enormous central helm position. The idea of dividing the helm position changed yacht design forever.
With a twin Helm position, Bavaria could make yachts in the range faster, offer better accommodation and improve visibility for steering when healing. A twin Helm position also allowed for easy access through the transom.
The six winch sail control system in the cockpit means you won't need to leave the cockpit to put a reef in or adjust the sails.
Walking around the deck; she has a solid feel as I move around the wide walkway decks, they are typically generous of Bavaria.
A great above deck feature is the forward storage locker, it's vast and will accommodate all sorts of kit including warps fenders and additional sails.
Below deck, the saloon with a set back integrated linear galley works perfectly on a yacht of this size. Light fills the saloon through the multiple hatches giving her an even bigger feel than her forty-six feet.
Cabins are ample size and are served well by twin heads.
We recommend a viewing of this popular yacht, she is keenly priced to sell and is open to sensible offers with some small cosmetic upgrading needed.
