Bavaria 40 Ocean

The Bavaria 40 Ocean is the centre-cockpit version of the Bavaria 40 design produced from 2000 onwards. The design is from J & J Designs, and the hull is of solid GRP laminate below the waterline, with Divinicell closed-cell foam sandwich above the waterline and in the deck moulding. Kevlar is used in the laminate in the bow are, to strengthen against collision damage.

She is fitted out in what was for many years Bavaria's house style, with lots of dark mahogany veneers with solid wood trim in the interior furnishings. She has a massive double aft cabin with 'island' berth, and a smaller but still spacious forecabin. Bavaria chose to fit one large heads with separate shower rather than two smaller heads compartments.

These yachts had options of two keel depths, in-mast furling or fully battened mainsails, and laid teak or plain GRP decks. A fixed windscreen is fitted to the forward part of the cockpit.

The accommodation has two double aft cabins, the aft one being significantly more luxurious. The heads compartment is in one of the under-deck passages through to the aft cabin, with a separate shower stall, and the galley is in the other walk-through to the aft cabin.

 

Forecabin double is 6' 2" long by 6' 6" at its widest aft end
