The German-built Bavaria R40 motor yacht is available in two designs: a coupe or a flybridge.

Both models feature a vacuum-infused hull for incredible strength and light weight, mated to twin sterndrive engine power for maximum interior space. Inside the hull you’ll find a two cabin and two head layout. The master suite is located amid-ships and uses the full thirteen foot beam. It features a double bed with a comfortable sofa, plus storage and even its own dressing table. The forward guest cabin is located up at the bow and has a technically sophisticated feature where you simply press a button to choose between one double bed, or two singles.

Up through the passageway to the main deck you’ll find what Bavaria calls a saloon featuring a lower helm station to starboard with a double helm seat with a companion seat to port. The l-shaped sofa wraps up the starboard side and behind the helm seat around a generously sized table that will easily entertain six for dinner. The galley is locate to port and includes every appliance you could hope for.

Once outside on the aft deck, you’ll find a hardtop overhead as the flybridge deck extends out over the aft cockpit. An l-shaped sofa on the starboard and stern gives way to a port-side walk-through transom to reach the good-sized swim platform.

Access to the flybridge is via a ladder to port. You’ll find two helm seats forward the captain’s on the centreline and the companion seat to port. An l-shaped lounge wraps from the venture beside the captain down along the starboard side and across the stern. A second generously sized table makes this space a wonderful spot for a sunset dining experience. With an overall height of 13’1” above the waterline, luxurious finishes and a revolutionary design the R40 fly is a contender for a Great Circle boat.
