Bavaria 42

Price AU $199,999 Negotiable SOLD

AU $199,999 Negotiable
This Bavaria 42 Cruiser is a yacht that comes with endless possibilities and is considered one of the best cruising yachts ever built. The twin helms and a spacious cockpit will accommodate your crew with comfort. The spacious uncluttered topsides allow the crew to venture from the cockpit with confidence. The large comfortable saloon, three generous staterooms and two heads allow those aboard to relax and refresh after a days sail or one of the longer offshore passages this yacht is capable of. Electric winches, Bow Thruster, and the walk through stern only compliment her already impressive usability for a cruising couple or solo sailor. The yacht is also well suited for those looking for a vessel to play with around the cans on the weekends. She has a teak cockpit sole, infills on cockpit seating, and rear scoop. Recently antifouled (07-2019) and ready to go. She presents very nicely and should tick all the boxes.
