Broker's Comments

The Bavaria 40 Cruiser is the ideal vehicle for relaxing holidays. Cruising, weekending, family fun, club racing and passagemaking are all within the province of the Bavaria Cruiser 40.

3-cabin sailing boat Bavaria Cruiser 40 - was built in 2001 and it is located to view at Peake's Yacht Services Boatyard, Trinidad W.I.

This Bavaria 40 cruiser has a three-cabin layout, with two staterooms aft under the cockpit and a large owner’s stateroom forward with an ensuite head. The galley is ranged Euro-style along the port side of the saloon, with another head aft to port. The dinette in the saloon, which can seat seven people easily, incorporates a settee that is also long enough to sleep the odd guest.

This Bavaria 40 steps lift to reveal more of the Volvo Penta engine than most companionway hatches do - you can clamber in if you need to - and there are additional access panels in the aft cabins.

Access to the swim platform proves to be very easy to use when passengers fancy a dip in the ocean.
