Bavaria Cruiser 42 - EUR 117,000

Here is a unique production yacht with more than which may meet the eye. The owner had his yacht commissioned by Bavaria Yachts with many additional build features in anticipation of his circumnavigation. Hull to deck joint was significantly improved by extra laminating as well as the routine fastening. A series of additional stainless steel ribs were run across and glassed in to offer extra stiffness and extra joined keel support. A solid stainless steel tube section was glassed into the the bow and extends below and under the waterline for extra collision protection.

Extra fuel tanks were also installed at the factory and the yacht carries extra large lpg bottles.

A very interesting and fully equipped yacht.
