Following the much anticipated introduction of the all-new Bavaria Vision 46, the second in the new line, the Vision 42 very naturally delivers the luxury, performance, and innovation of the Vision Series in this 42-foot design.
This boat follows closely the design, layout, and innovative features of the Vision 46. The Vision Series has been designed, from the start, to embody the cruising sailor's wish list. What is striking about this boat is the attention to detail, and the endless list of thoughtful features, some high-tech, and some are just common sense, executed simply and elegantly.
The development process for the Vision started with consulting cruising sailors from around the world about what would make the perfect sailing cruiser. Bavaria then combined the expert power of Farr Yacht Design and the British boutique firm, Design Unlimited. The result is a boat that will set a new standard in the owner’s cruiser category, with a focus on high-end elegance, comfort and easy handling. The unique cockpit design with offset companionway allows for a large port cockpit table that is electrically lowered and convertible to a day/lounging bed – which creates a true living cockpit, not yet seen in the production cruiser class. The Vision’s many unique comfort and handling features combine with elegant interiors, Farr Yacht Design engineering for fast and comfortable passages, and the premium build quality and finish found in all Bavaria Yachts. All combined, this stunning boat is sure to draw attention wherever she drops her hook.
The 2-Cabin Vision 42 can be customized with one or two heads and each floor plan includes a separate shower room. And as always with Bavaria Yachts, each boat is built to an owner's specifications, including an array of wood and upholstery options to choose from.
Fully equipped sailaway prices will range from $300,000 to $330,000, depending on options selected.
The Vision 42 handled with poise, safety and performance. A couple will have fun cruising this boat and can do so with a lot of confidence. BWS
Overall construction quality is excellent. The list of well-conceived features goes on and on...and the finish is excellent throughout SAIL
Topsides, the captain has plenty of room to work, while the crew can relax on the fold-down daybed. CW
