Bavaria 42

The Bavaria 42 was designed by Bavaria in 1999 and was in production until 2002. Later it was replaced by the Bavaria 42c model. At 44 feet overall, the Bavaria 42 is a powerful, capable passage-maker. However her ease of handling makes it a joy to hoist sail for just an hour's cruise around the coast.

Luxurious accommodations below, with very good ventilation, make her an ideal choice for trade wind sailing. With built-in GPS, autopilot and inverter makes life extra easy. Enjoy being the envy of all who survey her! With the charter market needs in mind the Bavaria designers offered us precise that.. a boat that can accommodate the maximum possible guests for her length, easy in handling, reasonable sailing performances and low quality construction and materials -which keeps the price of the boat low and results in an excellent charter price.

Two wheels helm, in-mast furling main sail and all the sheets and halyards controlled from the cock-pit the Bavaria 42 is an easy to handle boat. Her sailing performances -on all kinds of winds- are in the average for her category. The sailing yacht BAVARIA 42 is offered for charter in Greece as bareboat or skippered charter for your sailing holidays and yachting vacations to the Greek islands. Is a beautiful sailing yacht offering comfortable accommodations for her guests with a tastefully decorated interior living area and spacious decks for sunbathing and relaxing during cruising. A stunning 4 cabins monohull from Germany, perfectly equipped as well with roller furling sails. Built for demanding charter groups, this 42 footer offers smooth sailing comfort, a large cockpit and a generous interior. Her well arranged layout brings a real pleasure to sail. She ensures easy handling and extraordinary sailing features.

The Bavaria 42 can accommodate up to 9 guests in 2 aft (double bedded) and two front (one V-shape and one upper and lower banks) cabins, when one more person can sleep in the saloon. At 42 feet she is one of the smallest vessels offering four cabins layout and as one expects this reflects to the size of the cabins. Personally I would prefer it with three cabins only of sufficient dimensions.

The saloon -in light mahogany- is bright and well ventilated. The dinette offers enough space for 6-7 persons -but definitely is not big enough for nine, which is the total capacity of the yacht.

Would I recommend this boat for charter? If you have a crew of 8-9 and you would like to sail as cheap as possible definitely yes. At a quite economic charter price, a well maintained Bavaria 42 is one of the best choices a charterer can get. Yet, if comfort stands high in your requirements -regardless of costs- then you should better look for another vessel.
