Bavaria Vision 46 ‘Sweet Chariot’ (2016)


Bavaria Vision 46 for sale

If you are a sailor who appreciates the finer things in life, consider “Sweet Chariot”, the sleek and graceful Bavaria Vision 46 for sale in the BVI with Horizon Yacht Sales.

The brief for the Vision 46 was for a yacht to combine elegance, comfort and ease of handling. The Bavaria Vision 46 was six months in the conceptual stage alone, with input from dealers and customers around the globe taken into consideration. A further six months was spent in developing and building the prototype.

The result is nothing short of what you would expect from a close collaboration between the Bavaria shipyard, Farr Yacht Design ( FYD) and Design Unlimited, a British custom interior design specialist. Design Unlimited were responsible for the interior design on Sojana, a Farr 115 footer, and Wally Cento, a 98 foot Wally, among many other mega yacht commissions.


The hull design by Farr Yacht Design has a performance that you would expect from the world’s most successful performance yacht design group. Easily sailed shorthanded, with a Garmin autopilot and many high tech extras included such as electric winches for both genoa and mainsail, and an electric coach roof winch to furl the mainsail in and out, this yacht is incredibly easy to handle. You will find the 106% genoa easy to tack compared to an overlapping genoa, and the powerful mainsail is easily controlled via the double mainsheet system which acts as both a traveller and a mainsheet in an extremely efficient and safe manner. The powerful Selden Rodkicker makes vang sheeting upwind a straightforward operation. Navigation is enhanced with a Garmin 4008 colour chartplotter in the cockpit.


The companionway on the Bavaria Vision 46 is offset to starboard in the cockpit, which means when you are dining at anchor, you do not have to drop a table leaf to squeeze past when it is time to get below for the next bottle of wine! This yacht has the electrically lowerable cockpit table, so that you can drop the table to make a very large sun pad in the cockpit – perfect to enjoy a good book under the shade of the bimini. You can even shower on the signature lowerable swimming platform, without holding the shower head, as this yacht has a shower holder on the underside of the helm seat.

Below Decks

Below decks, Design Unlimited have incorporated style and practicality in equal measure. Oak joinery and the sumptuous, hard wearing leather upholstery is enhanced by the custom ambient lighting. Hatches and portlights supply an abundance of light, and the reflective tint on the windows assist the Air conditioning when the tradewinds are not quite enough in the height of summer. The L shaped galley is functional with generous food preparation areas, and ample refrigeration space. There is plenty of storage space, even a dedicated cabinet for wine storage with a convenient pull out rack which holds the glasses by their stems. The owner’s stateroom is forward, with a Queen- size island berth, and en suite head and shower. The port aft cabin is a King-size double, which neatly converts to a twin, and there is a smaller double berth to starboard, accessed via the aft head. Above this starboard aft berth, you can sleep under the stars, as the cockpit seat above the berth hinges open to give a view of the night sky. The electrically lowerable saloon table on the starboard side, gives you the flexibility of a double in the saloon.


This yacht is equipped with a 12 feet R.I.B. dinghy with 15hp Yamaha outboard, including lights, anchor, anti-foul, cable and lock.

We offer a try before you buy on this yacht – charter her for up to a week and if you purchase her within 3 months we’ll deduct the cost of your charter from the purchase price. Only one 2016 model available to stay in the BVI fleet for the 2016 season.
