The Vision 46 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 new Vision Series offers features that were, until now, only seen on mega yachts. 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 Vision 46, the first in the series, can be customized with two or three cabins, 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.
In design, layout and execution, the aggressively modern Bavaria Vision 46 may be the definitive "couple's cruiser." CW Review Jan 2014
I'm not sure how the Farr Design Office did it but the boat remained under control the entire time, even when we pushed the boat SAIL Review Dec 2013
