This Bavaria 40 is built in Germany to strict Geranischer Lloyds's specifications. The hull is solid fibreglass below the waterline with a Kevlar reinforced bow shield. The hull centerline carries extra laminate layers and the keel flange is also reinforced. She incorporates high quality European deck hardware and fittings and offers a lot of yacht for the money. Three cabins, two bathrooms and a spacious saloon and cockpit. She has just been freshly antifouled (11-2020) and is ready to go for another cruising season rapidly approaching. If you are looking for an ideal cruising yacht on a limited budget, then look no further than this Bavaria 40. They combine excellent German engineering, versatile sailing characteristics and comfortable accommodations all wrapped up in the one package. Many upgrades in recent times to allow current owners to sail north from Tasmania and back down to SE Qld where they now call home.

Coming down the companionway into the saloon the navigation station is to starboard and opposite forward is the galley, The forward facing Nav station has a good-sized chart table with stowage under, a comfortable seat and tool locker beneath. The galley lines the port side of the saloon and makes good use of available space. This arrangement provides ample counter space on galley and plenty of room under for lockers. Saloon seating is U shaped to starboard around a large saloon table. Extra seating is amid-ships and this has been retro fitted with a gas strut to open up and expose a large storage unit under for all your dry goods. Easy seating for 7 to 8 here as the need arises. Forward through the bulkhead you find the ensuite to starboard and large Vee berth forward again with Opening ports and deck hatches for natural lighting and ventilation. There is a large locker to port behind the berth suitable for hanging most things. All furnishings throughout the yacht are generally in very good condition. The Vee berth mattress is a purpose built inner-spring giving a much better feel than standard fair. Coming back through the saloon the second head/shower is located aft of the galley to port and from there you have the port and starboard double berths. These are of a good size and feature opening ports both into the cockpit or outbound on the hull. Deck hatches over here as well. Plenty of deck hatches and opening ports in the saloon make this model one of the better ventilated yachts on the water today. You can capture breezes no matter which way the wind is blowing. Privacy screens to deck hatches, flyscreens and curtains for opening ports. All in all the internals are in good condition and have been maintained well. Storage throughout the yacht in most of the usual places as well as some well thought out nooks that would normally be open spaces.

Having been aboard this yacht during the listing process we can attest to her overall condition. She is a well set up cruising boat and will also suit mooching up and down our great coastline. Plenty of room for the family and guests while at those special anchorages or equally at home shorthanded on the longer passages she is capable of. She has an easy transit out of the water or dinghy through the transom, large cockpit for her size and well planned deck space forward giving safe manoeuvring while sailing or at anchor.
