BAVARIA with a new Yacht Line in 2012: THE BAVARIA VISION

(lifePR) (Giebelstadt, ) The Bavarian shipyard's product range will be extended in 2012 by a complete new line: VISION stands for exclusive, high-end boats with even more focus on elegance, comfort and easy handling.

Throughout the entire development process BAVARIA has not only continued in successful cooperation with Farr Yacht Design, but now also cooperates with the well-established English company Design Unlimited.

To meet the high expectations set on this very special yacht line, clients from all over Europe were included in the design process, a result of which is that even the most demanding clients in the owners market will see the VISION as the yacht of their choice.

Launch of the VISION 46

The first model of the new line available on the market will be the VISION 46. Like all yachts of this series, it combines clear design elements with a warm and elegant feeling. With an overall length of 13,99 meters and a hull length of 13,70 meters it brings its waterline to 12,51 meters. At a ballast ratio of 28% the kerb weight is a total of 12,3 tons.

BAVARIA product manager Daniel Kohl explains further features of the new VISION 46. "The new VISION is tailored especially to the requirements of yacht owners who are looking for a boat that, besides comfort and spaciousness with four or six berths in two or three cabins, includes outstanding sailing-performances and features that make singlehanded maneuvering possible both at sea and in port."

Comfort is an important key word for the new VISION. How has that been implemented with the first yacht of the line, the VISION 46?

"We designed the boat with an asymmetrical companionway between 1,70 meters and 2,14 meters. Combined with a beam of 4,19 meters there is sufficient space at the cockpit's port side for a spacious lounge that can be transformed into a generous sunbathing area. The interior provides a headroom of 1,95 meters."

What effect does the comfortable configuration have on the yacht's handling?

"In the rear part of the cockpit plenty of time has been invested in the development process. The helmsman enjoys a perfect ergonomic position for sailing the yacht, and the space behind the helmsman is well-equipped for both sitting and lying down. This is possible because of a central backstay and many additional features around this area of the boat."

The yacht is steered from the cockpit with a sailing rig of 100m² ("Comfort") or 103m² ("Sport") and a mast height above water line of about 20,10m. The on-board motor is a Volvo Penta D2-55 or D2-75 with a fuel tank volume of approximately 210 liters.
