NEW YACHTS — Bavaria Vision 42

New Yachts - Bavaria Vision 42

Claiming a successful premiere of its Vision luxury sailboat line at the Dusseldorf marine trade fair at the start of the year, German yachtmaker Bavaria has announced a second model, the 42.

According to Bavaria, the Vision 46 received “extremely positive response” from both customers and the press, and the next model in the new keelboat collection is now under development. Benefitting from the same features and innovations as its big sister, Bavaria expects to launch the 42 later this year.

With an emphasis on comfort and design, the new Vision 42 flaunts an integrated lounge area in the cockpit and generous amounts of space in the cabins. Bavaria said the Vision concept provides the 42 cruiser with extra comfort for longer trips.

Bavaria added that innovative features such as the new Dock and Trim Control, designed especially for the builder, ensure that the Vision 42 has easy handling and great performance — whether sailing alone or with a larger crew.

The Vision line-up is the result of a Europe-wide series of workshops involving customers in its development right from the outset, the design based on owners’ conceptions of their own dream yacht.
