Bavaria 45 - 3 cabins - 3 heads
This 2011 model provides something as rare as hens teeth in the BVI charter industry; a three cabin monohull ... with three heads! Friends and family wishing to cruise the Caribbean can enjoy their own space while sailing in comfort, style and privacy! The forward cabin features a large head and separate shower compartment, while the two, equal sized aft cabins each have their own private head with shower.
Farr Yacht Design and BMW Group Designworks USA, are to be congratulated for raising the bar and setting yet another new design standard. Together, they have produced a truly lovely yacht which demonstrates superior sailing performance. Many boats have twin steering stations, but few boast twin rudders! You will immediately notice her incredibly responsive helm as she holds true to her heading.
Another innovation is the fold down transom. It's not a step through transom leading to an attached swim platform, nor is it a tiny section of the transom which drops down to become a tiny platform. The entire transom folds down to become one massive swim platform! This feature opens up the cockpit allowing a lot more space for swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling and will also provide a great deal more air flow to keep the cockpit area cooler while at anchor. Absolutely brilliant concept!
Below decks, the days of dark and dingy, monohull "cave dwelling" is a thing of the past. This sailboat's airy and spacious interior together with no fewer than 11 opening hatches will make even the most claustrophobic in your group comfortable.
Belying her name, "Trade Secret" ... I have no doubt this boat won't be much of a secret for very long. She is guaranteed to be heavily booked throughout the year, so book your dates early to avoid disappointment. Keep in mind that a three cabin, three head monohull is a very rare animal!
