2005 Bavaria 46 is now for sale.
A strong and reliable boat, she was fitted out in 2014 to carry its owners across two oceans from the Mediterranean to Sydney.
From Europe, she was underused for years due to the GFC and a lack of easy access cruising grounds around her original port of Rome.
A major re fit for ocean sailing in 2014 included overhauling the running rigging and reefing systems, an update to the steering system, and a new liferaft and safety systems.
New sails ,a fully battened main and furling headsail were commissioned for the Pacific leg of the trip as well as a brand new Tohatsu outboard.
A new dodger was added in 2017.
The motor has been continually serviced by current owners most recently in 2017.
She points well to windward and loves a good breeze whilst handling bigger ocean seas elegantly. Her owners calculate an average cruising speed of 6.5 knots for passage making, but will often make a speedier arrival if sailing on a beam or to windward.
With a luxurious interior that can accommodate 8 and a spacious cockpit made for the Sydney climate, she can provide you a stylish platform for entertainment in local waters, or she can be sailed with a crew of two to all the distant shores you wish to explore.
