Bavaria 46 Vision - 2016

Sailboat Name: Sweet Chariot | Air Conditioned

Farr Yacht Design and Design Unlimited have collaborated to produce the Bavaria Vision 46. On the surface, she appears to be just another lovely sailboat with a distinctly European elegance. Some snooping is required to discover all her clever innovations.

As with almost all modern boats, she boasts a large, drop down swim platform. But unlike many others available for charter, she has a traditional single backstay. Access to the cockpit is on the starboard side of the stay. When you lift up the seat spanning the entrance to the cockpit, you'll find a handy little gizmo to which you attach your fresh water shower head to take a lovely, hands free shower!

Twin helms grace her very spacious cockpit. The main and genoa sheets lead to dual electric winches situated directly beside each wheel. The cockpit coaming and winch mounts have been thoughtfully crafted so that the winches are very easy to reach, making short or single handed sailing a relatively simple process.

The cockpit is simply wonderful! The star of the show here is the offset companionway, allowing for the extra spacious seating area to port and an electrically operated hi-lo dining table. When in the low position, the table folds in two to become a smaller coffee table. Unfold it, reposition the cushion backs ... and you have a full sized lounge. Stretch out, read a book, enjoy the Caribbean breeze, take a nap ... do whatever your heart desires.

Her side decks are nice and wide and free of any tow numbing hardware. All hatches are recessed and the very large foredeck makes a wonderful spot for tanning.

Below decks, this yacht is equally comfortable and impressively finished. At the base of the companionway and to port, is the well equipped galley with double stainless steel sink, microwave, 3 burner stove with oven below, electric coffeemaker, toaster, blender, front and top opening fridge, top opening freezer and reasonable storage space.

The main saloon offers loads of additional storage space to stash all your goodies, including a wine bottle and wine glass storage cabinet. There's an L-shaped settee to starboard with a folding, electrically operated, hi-lo dining/ cocktail table that also converts to a double berth if required.

On the port side is yet another, three seater, in-line settee that morphs into a navigation station or a two person dining table. The whole saloon is drenched in loads of natural light and provides plenty of ventilation options should you choose to turn off the air conditioner.

Her forward cabin offers up a queen sized island berth with book shelf behind, a good sized hanging locker, storage space and an en-suite head with shower. The aft cabin is located behind the galley and can be configured with two single berths or a large king sized berth. The choice is yours.

At the base of the companionway to starboard, is another head with separate shower. The aft quarter berth is accessed through the head. A surprising little bonus to this cabin is that the starboard lazarette isn't really a lazarette! Pop open the lid and it leads directly into the quarter berth. If you wish to hire a captain, he can use the lazarette entrance without disturbing anyone below decks.

This sailboat is for the discerning traveler who enjoys all the modern conveniences. Just push a few buttons and go sailing. It doesn't get much better than this!

Note: ASA Sailing lessons (levels 101, 103 and 104) are available aboard this yacht. Candidates must be at least 12 years of age or over to acquire bareboat certification.
